Run Service Diagnostic Test ( 1-3 )
Pre-Chill - see page 33 for entering
service diagnostics
Does unit start to run? NO. Replace board

Page 33: Self Diagnostics
To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display
can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are
illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all
4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and
freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button
will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the
numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the
freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in
the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test.
Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.
For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will
increment the numbers down and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the
numbers up. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the
freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the

refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test
code. Press any button other than a temperature adjust button to begin the test.
When testing has been completed, do one of the following things:
Enter code 1 5 to completely reset the system.
Enter code 1 6 to exit diagnostic mode. The temperature control panel is reset automatically.
Unplug the refrigerator for at least 10 seconds. Test mode will terminate when the refrigerator is
plugged back in.
Test mode will terminate automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity.

May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Thanks, JW
I don't mess with GE often, this box is manual control (no push buttons) the
unit doesn't try to start or anything. It probably would not go into test mode if it could, I figure it is the board but thought I would shoot it out there to you more experienced guys before I spent the $100 Bill, Tight ain't
I. Thought there may be something I'm missing.
