My GE refrigerator just stopped.
I have a GE GSH22jfta WW.
The ice maker
stopped working years ago. I replaced the defrost heater last year.
Recently there were large amounts of ice buildup in the freezer
. But it was still cooling properly. I checked the door seals and they were fine. There was very little ice build-up on the coils – but since had an extra factory defrost heater I replaced the heater anyway. Then I cleaned a lot of dust out of the various filters.
When I plugged the fridge back in it was (almost) dead. The inside lights work, but the LED front panel is blank. And the water dispenser
doesn’t work. There is no noise or motion coming from the compressor, compressor fan, or water pump. Sometimes (not every time) I can hear one short click when I plug it in, but that’s it.
The board looks fine visually – there are no scorch marks and the fuse looks intact. The relay looks fine, but I haven’t checked with an Ohm meter yet. The power supply in the wall is working fine.
Any suggestions on next steps?
