hvacdrd your right on the mark as usual.....the original board shows to be the wr55x10174 changes to wr55x10335 then to the wr55x10552

I don't know what GE was thinking unless they were using the same harness for all boxes then but the white/yellow wire comes out as a single then bifurcates (thats my skoo noldge comin out) into 2 white/yellow wires going into positions 1 and 2.

If they did change the board and didn't cut the loop doing so should take care of the problem. The numbers on the board itself don't really co-inside with the actual part #. I'll try to find an old board and get the actual # off it.  If you do cut the loop just leave it to where you can reconnect if needed.

Click on  the link (in blue) of the board in my previous post. After accessing it you will see a paper sheet in one of the small boxes click on it and it will say clip the loop between 1 and 2 on the J1 connector (blue jumper wire).....this is if your board looks like the one in the picture which it should if they just did a board swap recently.....I can't find a picture to show you of it but it is pretty obvious after you get there.good  luck......check  back

The first thermistor is the 1-5 and is the fresh food one.....at 18.6k it is sensing about 25-28 degrees and is not letting the damper door stay open long enough for it to cool down, as it is satisfied that it is cool enough already. It could be a faulty thermistor but...read further

Did the people you bought this from say anything about putting a new mutha board in it? I've got a GSS20IEMB here in my shop that I have for personal use, the customer didn't want to fix it and I sold them a new one. Brought it back to the shop put in a new evap fan (nothing to do with yours) and a used board that I had here, didn't pay any attention. It would run freeze great on the freezer side (0 degrees) but not the ref. side(50-60 degrees) doing the same thing yours is....come to find out the ref. was the older style and the board was the newer wr55x10552 and I didn't cut the looping wire.  My damper door would open for a few seconds then shut right back down, after cutting the wire loop it took right off and has worked great for a long time.

If your ref. has the encoder knobs in the ref. side (2 white knobs that control the temps, not the digital) and the serial # starts with the following prefixes you will need to cut the loop-----TD2..VD2..ZD2..AF2..DF2..FF2..GF2..HF2..LF2..MF2..RF2..SF2   (if not then I would suspect the thermistor)  check  back and let us know  Good  Luck
