Hi Urban Woman,

Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small). 6fb5654.jpg

Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.

Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.

This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.


p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)

p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.

It appears that the defrost cycle is stuck in the on position. You can locate the defrost timer on most refrigerators and manually cycle them. It is not uncommon for them to fail. You should have a qualified technician do the repair.

A refrigerator. or freeze has to be kept in a vertical position or fluids in the compressor can seep into the wrong place and freeze up the compressor. liquids will not compress. A compressor replacement will probably fix it.

A freezer compressor is what pumps chilled Freon -- or another cooling agent -- through coils that line the freezer compartment. ... The cooling agent inside the compressor is sensitive to being moved around, which can cause knocking noises. Also, loose components can cause knocking sounds.

Defrost cycles typically every 8-12 hours. Lights will operate during cycle but compressor and fans will not. The cycle usually lasts less than an hour.

Make sure that the condenser coils are free of obstructions and dirt especially plastic bags. Then make sure that the fan is working.

This can be caused by two things.

Door Gaskets that need replacing.

A blocked defrost drain. This is located at the rear of the cabinet and is normally a small trough with a drain hole. Clean it with a piece of wire, wash the trough and put a tablespoon of bleach down it.

There are two coils and they are the evaporator and the condensor. GE likes to call the evaporator the " Low side coil." Both coils are inside the case, the condensor is rolled into a cage shape and has a fan on one end of the cage, The evaporator is behind the inside back wall of the freezer. The condensor you can see through the back cover on the bottom. This might not have anything to do with cleaning the coilss, they can become iced over on the evaporator, the evaporator fan can fail, the compressor can fail to start.
