This was a call I ran last Saturday and completed today. The customer had pulled his fridge out, unplugged it, and cleaned behind it on Friday. It wouldn't come back on, so I went out that Saturday to check it out. Display was reading 32 and 32. It had no interior lights or anything running at all. The customer did say the interior lights hadn't been working for awhile. I checked all connections and nothing. On Monday, I had a fellow technician call Frigidaire tech support, and they didn't know what the problem is and figured it may be a board issue. Well, I figured that much. Anyway, I went out today, replaced the main board, and it all fired right up. I just thought I'd share since I couldn't find this issue on any forums and even techline was stumped.

No problem. Also have you guys heard of having to change the touchpad membrane with the display board? Techline said since the board comes seperate now the membrane needs to changed as well when you do a display board. I know I've changed just the display board without issue already before Frigidaire ever told me that. That membrane was about $100 more than the display, so I found it a bit ridiculous. Luckily, I didn't need it, but still the thought that a customer would need that expensive rubber membrane just because the board is changed seems kind of dumb.

GE is getting dumber by the minute. I despise their top load Hydrawave washers, I hate their new line of dishwashers and their Café ranges suck. Oh yeah so do their refrigerators now.
