so you are saying my main control board is bad? Fridge has done this before when we have had some power outages, or if the freezer door was not shut all the way. I just need to know how to reset or stop the defrost.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
if the refrigerator isnt running or the compressor isnt the board has failed, there is no reset in this, the part # XXXXX the board is, WR55X10606 you can order this @ http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WR55X10606%20-%3d%3d this is the biggest problem by far in these refrigerators, thanks, Bryan

its the board, you can try unplugging it for a few minutes and see if it comes back on, if not you need the board, this runs everything. thanks Bryan
