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.
