Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
it sounds like this is a GE refrigerator. On the back left side there is an 8" X 10" sheet metal panel that covers a control board that shorts out very often. It sounds like your control board has shorted out. What your describing is very common for GE refrigerators that are newer then 5 years old. Here is the part.
