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.

you have a bad control board in the rear of the unit ...>>>>> To verify this check for 13.5 vdc on red and black going into the display board?? since your dispenser is not working the control board is most likely not working. puill the refrig from the wall and remove the cover plate it is square about 5"X6" you will see the control board thew part # for this is WR55x10552 if you need to replace it let me know

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!

Check to see if the evaporator fan is working. It may be seized up and not blowing the cold air into the fridge compartment. Some GE have a air valve diverter which controls the air flow into the fridge. If the fan is working and there is no cold air into the fridge, this may be jammed in its closed position.

Sounds like the drain hole is plug. Check it out. If it is then clean it.


Good luck

Check that the plug your refrigerator is plugged into is not part of your GFCI circuit. If you have a plug that has a test/reset button on it (usually on the same wall, but not
necessarily) press the reset button and see if that doesn't help.
