Diagnostic Test Kit for GE Refrigerators

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

Brother Durham explains the diagnostic test kit available for GE refrigerators:

If you do a lot of GE fridge repairs, you may benefit by getting a diagnostic aid shown in the following video. It is, in essence, nothing but a control panel that you can use and will bypass the one in your fridge, whether it is a similar panel, knobs or lcd screen control found at the dispenser. With such a panel, if you connect it and everything works, then you will be certain you have a bad control panel.

btw, the part numbers needed for the aid have been changed. Instead of the three parts mentioned in the video, you need two WR55X10390 (interface and touch panel kit) and WX05X14999 ( wire harness). I got one a few weeks ago and it paid for itself in a few days.

ps you can make one of these by removing a 5 key control interface from an otherwise dead GE and then purchase the harness.

There is a connector for the panel in the motherboard cabinet as well. The connector in front of the fridge may be under the hinge plate or behind the toe grill near the water line connector. I still am trying to figure out how he mounts the panel in the video. Maybe Hollywood magic.

Why are 2  WR55X10390  required?   In case one needs to be replaced?
