I am going to accept. This service is cool as hell. I am in appliance sales @ Lowes & am a techy that went thru appliance repair school back in the 70's. Without a guide as to what to do with this modern stuff we are lost. I know there has been a lot of trouble with this board since GE changed to this system. We don't hear of many problems on the newer ones.
Thanks again.

We have installed the board & the ref fired up.

Temps in freezer 0 but we can not get fresh food temps to tweek @ 37.38. Fresh food temps are stable, like 31 or 40 but not in the desired range. We are not living there so there is a day or two for temps to normalize.

Also we are hearing a sound like something is trying to cycle. We do not have this ref hooked to water so maybe it is the icemaker. Any idea how to turn it off. I see no switches.
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
sometimes it takes 24 hours to stabilize, as far as the ice maker goes there should be a switch on the side, some are toggle switched and some look like this,

Bryan,

The temp issue with the fresh food section has been going on for 3 weeks..since we put the board in. Could this board be defective?

Being in the appliance business, we have plenty of experiance trimming in temps. I can set it for 38 7 come back in a couple of days & it is 31 or try again & it is 40. with digital controls I expect it to be right on the money..
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
okay so this is freezing stuff in the refrigerator section ? you need to replace the damper assembly, this particular model had issue with the damper they have redesigned them to prevent freezing .
