Well, I wanted to update y'all.

I received my new control board and was able to get it installed today. Couldn't have been easier. Disconnect power, remove cover, disconnect plugs on the board, remove board, install new board in reverse order. Plugged it in, and hooray! The condenser fan kicks on as soon as the fridge fired up. Wonderful.

Too bad the entire board needed to be replaced...seems chinsy. But, I'm glad it was "only" a $90 fix.

Thanks again for the help, Jeff.

Hey Guys,
I have a simular issue - compressor is super hot and my freezer at times gets warm...
I called GE and got a tech to come over to check this out, he had a spare board in his truck and when he replaced it, the fan still wouldnt turn on!
HE told me that the compressor is toast, and I would need to replace it along with the board...
Q - where did you guys get the board from??

Dino

My freeze is working just fine but the bottom part of my refridgerator won't keep anything cold. The fan is not working. What part do i need to buy to fix it?

It's a gamble without proper diagnosis.

Which fan? The one inside the freezer, the one beside the compressor?

We are dealing with similar problems with a GE Bottom Freezer Refridgerator. Model #PFS22S1SBSS
The Condensor is barely turning and the Evaporater fan is turning like normal. The Condensor is hot and so is the compressor. Is the fan the problem? How can I change out the fan if it is?

Board controls the fan, many problems with both!


Condenser fan motor Manufacturer Number WR84X10055


Main control board assembly with installation instructions Manufacturer Number WR55X10942
