GE refrigerator, GSL25JFPHBS, with fried control board
I have a six and a half year old side by side GE refrigerator model GSL25JFPHBS. No issues until recently when everything stopped working except the interior lights. There was a faint burnt electronics smell. Did a little reseach and then opened the compartment up for the control board. Several components were clearly fried; large resister, small capacitor, and two surface mount chips (might be transitors). I ordered a new one and swapped them out. Refrigerator came on for a bit and when I unplugged it and buttoned it up and plugged it back in the refrigerator was not working again - compressor and fan were not coming on. I unplugged it and opened up the control board compartment again and noticed the same large resistor was blackened a bit. I am hesitant to plug it in again and suspect something is drawing too much power (compressor, fan, or other). Not 100% sure on this diagnosis since the fuse on the board was not blown on either board. I could not find a service manual or schematic for the refrigerator on the internet and would appreciate any guidance anyone may have on this issue. Thanks.Answer
I added a picture to the top of the page. Is this where the original board was brunt? If so fan motor is bad. When the If not then I am not sure what could have caused the problem.
