Thank You, Thank You!
 
Gene and everyone that has contributed. I have a newer model that had this problem. After a little micro soldering and less than $4.00 I have successful fixed my fridge. I had talked to GE but my was produced after the mb problems. I guess my newer version of the mb was NOT really fixed. Both of the capacitors were bloated. I did reach a really nice person at GE that said the would give me a 50% discount on parts.
AGAIN THANKS TO ALL. :) :)

infamous clicking
 
Howdy!

Seems like my fridge has this same problem, I'm not the original owner and I believe the fridge to be the original fridge to the house (about 6yrs old).

model: gsh25sgre ss
Serial: AH243585

Keeps clicking, water dispenser not working. clicked for about 10 mins this afternoon and then seemed to run normal, but it just started clicking again about an hour ago.

I guess I just need to know what parts to order?

Very likely the problem is a bad main control board.

fan motor first?
 
Hello everybody, I'm having the exact same problem with the clicking noise, etc. so that I will change out the main board. I've read that the reason for it to go bad might be a fan motor that was already bad and that if not changed out it could damage the main board again. I have to admit it had been "howling" some for a while but was cooling fine. Is this true and can somebody (Gene?) :) can give me the part# for it? I have a 7 year old fridge and the model number is PSS26NH / PSS26SH.
Also it's always mentioned that the main board WKKT0158-01-02 (which is what it says on mine) say its the WR55X10942 but all images I find for that board have 4 relays on the bottom left corner then two on top of the last of those 4 (counting from the left). Well, my board only has 3 relays counting from the left and the the two up but on top of an empty spot. Can I still use the WRR55X10942?

Thank you very much
Julio

Hi Julio,

Where did you find these model numbers you posted? Probably from the manual? The complete model number should be inside the refrigerator.

There are two fans in the refrigerator. Which one did you mean?

Gene.

Hello Gene, thanks for the quick reply.
Well, I found those numbers inside the refrigerator but apparently the wrong nameplate. I looked again and found another one, which is probably the one you're asking for. :) it's MODEL No.PSS26SHRB SS SERIAL No. TG434567

I'm not sure what fan. Does it have one for the freezer part and one for the refrigerator part? If yes then it's the one on the freezer part that's " howling".
Thank you,
Julio

Gene 10-04-2012 04:27 PM

Julio,

There is no such model (PSS26SHRBSS) number listed. Instead of "B" it should be A, C, D or E. Please verify ans repost it.

Gene.

Jrr3004 10-04-2012 05:05 PM

well, that's what it says, though! :( Just got more complicated?

Gene 10-05-2012 05:59 PM

Was this refrigerator made to use in US?

I did not find this model anywhere online. The closest model numbers are: PSS26SHRASS, PSS26SHRCSS, PSS26SHRDSS and PSS26SHRESS. I believe if your fridge is a regular GE SxS with no second evaporator in the refrigerator, then all major parts should be the same.

The main control board WR55X10942 is the correct part.

You have to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and verify what kind of the evaporator fan motor is in your refrigerator. It can have a thermistor wired into the connecting harness or not.

- The evaporator fan motor with a thermistor wired into the connecting harness Part number: WR60X10074

Part number: WR60X10074



- The evaporator fan motor with no thermistor wired into the connecting harness Part number: WR60X10185

Part number: WR60X10185



- The main control board Part number: WR55X10942

Part number: WR55X10942

Hello Gene,
Thank you for the reply. It says it was manufactured in Mexico. So, I can use the main board you suggest, even my current one having one less relay? Looking at the photo you attached mine doesn't have the relais where the letters "pli" of the word Appliance are on top. Use the WR55X10942 anyway?

Thank you
Julio
