Well hey...I will have to see how many new boards I can get compensated for...

This week was the first time I had a failure like this in a GE sxs- lights dimming, fan cutting off when calling for ice or water....swapped the main board out, and it solved it. Labled that board special to see if the capacitor fix works for it also.

I just got (20) 47uF caps, and (20) 470 uF ...enough to fix ten boards. Total cost, $43 from digikey. Got the 10,000 hr rated ones, as that was as high as I could find.

Will report back in a special posting if it all works out. Or not...but so far so good on the repairs.


Onward and Upward!
