Default GE ice and water doing the same thing as yours

Hello I have a GE model #: GSS25LSTASS that was purchased new in 2006 and for last few years I too have had no dispensing from my water or ice conductance. I'm now ready to fix it but, at a loss for which part would be best. I done the rewire under the frige with no luck. Would it be wiser to go with the main control board: WR55X10942 or the dispenser control board: WR55X10880

Please Help

Thanks

Hi,

What happens when you push the water or ice level on the dispenser?

How old is the water filter?

Hi Gene, thanks for answering my post! Iv'e changed the filter and used the bypass to eliminate the filter as a factor. I'm not sure how to check the "levels" though. What happens when the cup switch is pushed is; the control display flashes and the compressor will turn off for a few seconds. Then it the display comes back on and the frige resumes to work but fails to dispense ice or water. Besides what I described above the display seems to function normally in regards to: temp control, alram, express cool etc. I feel relatively that it must be the control board or display control but, unsure which direction is the smartest way to go since neither part is particularly cheap. Thanks again for your help in this matter.

Hi,

Very likely the problem is a bad main control board.

- The main control board Part number: AP4436216

Part number: AP4436216

Hi Gene thank you very much for your suggestion! My part came this afternoon, I installed it after work and now have ice and water flowing from my dispenser again. I haven't seen that since 2009 -so nice! Thanks again for your sharing you time and expertise.

Gene, I am kind of stumped on which way to go - I am not sure how old this fridge/freezer is the model is PSS26SGRDSS - For quite some time now it would not dispense Ice or Water - I checked the switch and all the buttons, I ended up removing the light bulb - (was not turning on) and now the water works... The lock - door alarm - quick ice have always worked.. Of course I am hoping that it is just a solenoid - should be easy, however I do not want to waste the money if it is one of the two boards.. Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks

Does the dispenser light go dim when you push the ice cubes release flap?

No, the flap itself is closed, pressing it does nothing. The lights dim when I press the mechanism to release ice, also the compressor stops momentarily..

It points to a bad main control board. No doubt about it.
