Customer Question

Have GE freezer FUF14SVRWW upright in garage about 3 years. Stopped running last night. Light works, control panel is activated. Does not repsond to pressing "cooler" button only "warmer". May not have been giving it the proper clearance on left side and top (stuff on it). Checked back and everything appears fine. help?

Unfortunately it sounds like your display control board has just failed and needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common part that fails on this freezer so you can try to unplug the unit for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset, but if that doesn't work then your control board has just failed since the cooler button won't respond. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order---this has nothing to do with not having enough clearance just for reference.

I see you requested a phone call so I'll send you that option now, but it's not difficult to replace at all. You just slide a putty knife behind the trim around the control panel and the door. Then push in toward the center of the control panel on the hidden plastic clips and that will release the control panel so you can pull it out and replace it.
