GE Shoctronic Blues
« on: October 22, 2011, 01:39:30 PM »
Larry brought a few thangs over this morning. That monogram ice box that is dead turns out the dude has 2 of them. So I get to remove the parts from the good one to see if I can get the other one going.

More from the swamp: Larry also brought by 2 boards. He was working on a GE ice box and installed this board in the ice box and it immediately glowed red and burnt a part up in it. I told him I thought that was a direct result of not replacing the fan motor from what I have read. Is anyone familiar with this? I advised him to also change the motors when swapping the board. Because I read the fan motor can spike the board. Is this correct?

Finally the dang GE dryer that had the bad inlet thermister was replaced and the idiot thang all it does is countdown and say clean filter.

It is a shame you cannot get any info online about these crappy GE electronics. I was listening to the GE CEO on the news talking about GE going global and I wonder if he even gives a dayum about quality anymore? I hope the GE spys that frequent this forum comment on that one.

That is what I gotta check. Let me ask you this. On that working monogram the light comes on shes down to 34 degrees and everthing is fine. I took the control panel board off and looked at both sides of the broken monogram. IF the control panel was the problem the light would still work right? I am thinking the main power supply is bad. I am going to swap that out first because that control panel is a pain in the asz to replace. TIP you have to remove the board to plug it in and then snap the board back onto the eschrucheon. A real pain in the butt.

ZIBS240PBSS

Today I removed the power supply and could not find any obvious looking failures but I did detect a hint of electric something or other near the transformer on the board. It does not appear to be all that tough to replace. I put it back into the bad ice box and kept my cold beer in the good one over the weekend.  :2funny:

The board has a huge power supply mounted on it. Anyone have any idea?
I have 2 of these sitting side by side. One works the other does not. I don't want to be the one that screws the working one up.
Plugging in the board could easily spike the good one if I have a bad fan motor. Larry is like go ahead and swap boards. He done already fried one in another machine.
