Went out on this lovely GE. Evap fan not running, found a burnt resistor on the mutha board. Supplier suggest WR55X10996... This is the first time we have ran into this little bugger so naturally we don't have stock in the van... But we have came acrossed hundreds of wr55x1942 (installed two just today). And had 4 in stock in the van... But one connection is slightly different, and we weren't brave enough to try using the wr55x1942

The question, is WR55x10996 the new "it" board that is gonna replace wr55x10942? Has anyone tried the 10942 in place of the 10996?

We pretty much assumed that also. Woulda been nice sticking to the same board... One of the few things we liked about GE imagination was one universal board... Some how they even managed to screw that up...

Had to use the WR55X10996 for a couple of bottom mounts.  Part distributors only stock a few of these at a time.  WR55X10942 is still GE's darling but not compatible with some bottom mounts.  Wouldn't consider the 10996 for truck or even shop stock, just order as needed.
