GE Arctica stopped cooling
Model Number: PSS25MGNA Brand:
5 - 10 years
Well, I think I've figured out what's wrong, but just want to make sure.
Two days ago, our refrigerator stopped cooling.
GE Arctica PSS25MGNA
At first, I thought it was the kids leaving the door open, but then after a couple hours, things kept getting softer.
The light and fans were working, just no compressor noise.
So, I unplugged it for a few hours and plugged it back in. No compressor.
I opened up the back and cleaned the dust off and then opened the main board inspection panel.
I bought a digital multimeter and based on another board issue check, checked the leads coming from the biggest wires. There were three of them. Labeled on the board: COMP, DEFR and LINE.
The only one with power (120 VAC) was the LINE one. The other two had nothing indicating.
So, I'm assuming I have a bad logic board and will need to replace it.
However, on the replacement boards I've seen on this site, there isn't the large COMP, DEFR and LINE thing. I'm assuming a different design.
Let me know if I'm correct in my thinking/testing.
