I have a GE GFSS6KKYASS refrigerator. The lights and water

Customer Question

I have a GE GFSS6KKYASS refrigerator. The lights and water dispensor are working, but the fridge and freezer are not cooling. I cleaned the coils and unplugged and plugged the unit back in, and the compressor and fans started working. It cooled and the freezer froze. One day later, its warm again. I unplugged it and it started back up. Is this a problem with the motherboard ?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If unplugging the unit starts the unit back up, then either you have a bad control board or you're getting an error code. Check the display when the unit stops cooling again. If you get an 88 on the screen then determine which segment is flashing and let me know and I can tell you what error you're getting. Otherwise if you're not getting an error and the unit just shuts down, the main control board on the back of the refrigerator will need to be ordered and replaced.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
