do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? Is the unist still cooling properly and everything else working?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

all of the rest of the fridge is working properly. The ice maker is full and all is cooling. It just seems as there is no power to the door panel. It was working fine 2 days ago.


Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
ok that's a fairly common problem on a lot of GE refrigerators. If you pull the refrigerator forward, there is an 8" x 10" sheet metal panel on the back of the entire unit. If you remove this panel there is a control board behind it. This control board failed and cuts out the entire dispenser and soon after starts affecting the cooling so you'll want to replace the control board ASAP. The board is usually about $120.
