DEFROST TIMER IS STUCK IN THE ON POSITION CALL LOCAL REPAIR SERVICE

GE Refrigerators | Answered 2 days ago


The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. The plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard might have unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. Just reconnect it and that should reset the display.

I had the same problem. The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. What had happened in my case is the plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard had become unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge, and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. I just reconnected it and that reset the display. Glad for it too, I thought I needed a new $130 motherboard! Hope this helped!

Hello Dow;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Manufacturers have two recall notices, one to the customer which is a expensive recall and one to field service technicians.

The notice to the field service technicians is to repair at no cost to the customer regardless if the warrantee has expired.

I have as a professional hated this deception by manufacturers.

Please see the following:

Text of GE letter advising technicians of main board recall

General Electric
November 7, 2006
Dear GE Customer Care Servicers,
GE Consumer & Industrial places a very high priority on product quality and customer satisfaction
and thus continuously assesses our product reliability. Recent analysis has discovered a potential
problem with the main circuit board on a limited number of refrigerator models, which could lead
to lower than anticipated life expectancy on that component. Therefore, if the main circuit
board fails, GE Consumer & Industrial will replace this part free of charge to the consumer until
further notice.
Models Covered: see attachment
The models affected are side­by­side plastic liner, side­by­side metal liner, bottom freezer two
door and bottom freezer French door. The models were produced between May 2005 and August
2006 (HH -- RL serial range) and are included in this program. See enclosed list.
Potential Additional Covered Parts:
Specific parts involving the failure of the main board are included in this program. These parts
are limited to the following:
­Evaporator Fan failure, only if accompanied by a Main Board failure
­Dispenser Board failure, only if accompanied by a Main Board failure
The main board part number in cases in WR55X10552. Please use your normal warranty MA00 job
code for this repair. If you encounter an evaporator fan or dispenser board failure due to the
above main board, please include on your invoice and use the normal MA00 job code. It is critical
that you verify the proper functioning of the unit including the evaporator fan motor and
dispenser board before leaving the home to avoid a repeat call.
Units may be in or out of the standard 1­year product warranty and both instances are covered
under this concession program.
If you previously completed this repair and charged the consumer, please send a copy of the
service invoice to General Electric Consumer Relations, PO Box 10736, Norfolk, VA 23513 or fax a
copy to 1­877­299­0725 so that we may issue a refund to the consumer.
Sincerely,

You still may be able to get a thermostat (i'm guessing that's what he's calling the cold control). Get your model number and hit the internet. Go page by page. It will be tedious but you may get lucky. Try every appliance part site that shows up. Sometimes o.e.m. parts sit in warehouses for years before they're sold if ever. You might find a brand new one. Also, check with your local appliance recycler. Sometimes they have good used parts.
