Next step is to check the pressure in the sealed system. It has to be done by a certified tech. If the refrigerator is less than 5 years old, it can be under the warranty. Check it with GE.

Same issues as the OP in addition to a click down by the compressor. I replaced the board and now the fan is spinning normally. Based on other posts, it appears I should proceed to the overload/relay (WR08X10061?) next. How can I test the overload/relay to see if it is good?

What is the complete model number of the refrigerator?

What was wrong with the refrigerator?

Have you performed any troubleshooting?

Same model number.

Issues:
  • Clicking noise by compressor
  • condenser fan spinning slowly
  • ice maker not working
  • and now, no cooling
I ordered a discounted board from GE and replaced it. The fan is now spinning normally but it is not cooling at all. The clicking increased. There was a small amount of water in the ice maker after running for 3 hours.

I pulled PTC and overload/relay to test it. I have since busted the plastic on the PTC attempting to pull out the overload because it was very brittle.

I ordered both from this site. If this fixes it, the only remaining issue is the ice maker. Guess I'll wait and see.

Thanks!

They found the "special program" that was giving away boards but that program ended in August. So, they sold it to me for about 40% off.

Gene - Got the parts this morning. Wow, that was fast!

Two things:
  1. Didn't realize the overload came in the PTC. I'll need to return that.
  2. The new part is layed out a bit different. Does the black wire go to the terminal labeled "N" and the blue wire to "L"?
Thanks in advance!

No. Due to US AC power circuit wiring color codes the Line wire (L or L1) is always black.

Between the new board and the new PTC/overload, all issues have been resolved. Thanks!
