I have GE Profile Frence Doors Bottom Freeze refrigerator,

Customer Question

I have GE Profile Frence Doors Bottom Freeze refrigerator, Model # PFS22SISBSS,Serial #VH048632. The unit is getting power but the temp displays in the cooling section are dark.
Both the cool box and the freezer are not working. I unpluggd the fridge and when I plugged it back in and it sounds like something is attempting to start but it cuts out immediately. I got a service person and he claims it is the mother board and the overload assembly. I may be wrong but if feel if the unit was attempting to start that the problem would be in the ovetload assembly alone. please advise.

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

There is a relay for the compressor on the board, that is probably what you are hearing click, if the compressor is not running and the board is not showing any readout on the temp display then the problem is the main board. I highly doubt it has anything to do with the overload on the compressor itself as that would not have anything to do with the display at all you would still get a readout on the display even if the compressor was not running.
