Recommended steps to improve your online searches.
Unless you have become accustomed to online search strategy it is often to find the help you need without spending a lot of time on You Tube videos and Google searches. There are some steps you can take which help save time and find better results.
Start by entering the appliance problem
If your fridge is leaking water you could enter “fridge leaking water” and there would be far too many results. Try instead “G.E. fridge leaking water” and you will starting off well.
Specify what is causing the problem
For example if your fridge is not cooling and you have now found frost building up in the freezer section you could search “G.E fridge frost building up”. If the frost build up is on the evaporator coils (not ice build-up in the base underneath) then 4 or 5 causes will be found. Thermistor, defrost thermostat, defrost heater element, or defrost timer or electronic control. On most fridges there will only be 3 potential faulty parts on that model.
Learn how to test the faulty part
Unless there is obvious burnt components on the control board then it can be very difficult to confirm that the board is faulty. In this case the best route is by eliminating the other 2 parts by testing them with a meter, and if those parts showing a proper ohms reading then the control board is faulty. However this assumes that there is power getting to the electronic control board. In this case you would search “how to test a fridge defrost heater” and “how to test a fridge thermistor, (or defrost thermostat). This process will reduce the chance of wasting time and money by replacing the wrong part.
How to install the part
Do a specific search relating to that part such as “replacing a GE fridge control board”. Follow these steps and you will have successfully repaired your own appliance.
