GE Refrigerator Not Cooling After Power Outage

It is a common problem with GE refrigerators that the main controller board can malfunction after a power surge or power outage. This can result in the refrigerator or freezer no longer cooling or making odd surging or whining sounds from the back.

Fortunately, there is a relatively simple and inexpensive solution by ordering and replacing the main controller board. It is about $130 and takes just 30-40 minutes to replace. This is much cheaper than calling the GE repairman or buying a new refrigerator.

Below is the part you’ll need from amazon but be sure to enter your model number to ensure you are ordering the correct one for your fridge. You’ll be up and cooling again in no time!

Let us know below if this worked for you so you can help other GE refrigerator owners who’ve experienced a power outage or surge.

My GE profile refrigerator conduct power but both the freezer and the fridge not working at all. I’ve called in two technicians both with different diagnostic result. One said it’s licking refrigerant and the other said the compressor is gone. I don’t know who to believe and difficult to ascertain the actual problem. As I read on this platform, the mother board could be the problem. What should I do in this instance.
