This answer was rated:

i have GE Profile Bottom Freezer refrigerator. It's appox. 2 years old. I discovered this morning that although the electric to the unit is on (lights are on in the refrig) THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR AREN'T WORKING. I unplugged it and replugged it into the outlet. Both came on for approx 30 seconds and then shut down again.

Any idea what the problem maybe?

Is this a board that simply snaps in the back? can I do it my self?
you can do it yourself, when you get the cover off it will unplug, there are little plastic holders holding the board in place, release these and pull the board out. there are instuctions with the board. thanks Bryan
