Yes, the temp controls are on the freezer door at the top of the dispenser.

What I need to know is how to get this model into diagnostic mode and test the thermistors, fans and damper. The tech sheet under the fridge gives no details.

Here's what GE says about testing this type:


All the GE electronic refrigerators have a Diagnostic Mode that is incorporated in the software in each main electronic board. This Diagnostic Mode will test certain components and operate others.

To activate this diagnostic test feature on an electronic refrigerator, you will need a touch pad control with at least 5 key pads; otherwise you will have to install the additional diagnostic tool.

The diagnostic aid kit may assist the technician to functionally test individual components. A diagnostic kit can be assembled and consists of a key pad temperature control assembly and wire harness. The parts required are WR55X10390 and WX05X14999.



The test kit is basically just a touchpanel with a connection harness.

You can usually work around this, though, by just focusing on the troubleshooting the problem. For example, if the evap fan isn't running, see if the motor is getting voltage. If it is, then replace the fan motor. If not, then replace BOTH the muthaboard and the fan motor.

What's the problem with this box?

Sorry it took so long to reply, I've been covered up. As it turns out, I took your advise and focused on troubleshooting, on closer inspection I realized the water valve to the icemaker had been leaking down the back of the freezer and had run into and frozen in the evap compartment. The evap thermister was encased in a solid block of ice. The fill tube to the ice maker had frozen and when the ice maker tried to cycle the water ran down the outside of the fridge and directly into the compartment with the motherboard. We all know wawa and electicity don't play well together. The final fix was to of course replace the motherboard and both the evap and freezer thermisters, which by the way, were out of tolerance. All is now well and we have another happy, satisfied customer! Thank you most fermented one, for helping me to focus on the task at hand.

I remain vely, vely thankfull!

Oh! PS the original problem was an erratic defrost cycle with periods where it would not go back into the refrigeration cycle. Everything would thaw in freezer and on the barley pop side it was warm.
