I have a problem that has already cost me a tub of Cookies 'n' Cream and a tub of Vanilla. Seeing as how my wife is pregnant, this cannot be allowed to go on.

My PFS22S/SBSS has its temperature control on the top of the fridge (this is a fridge on top, freezer on bottom model). When we first noticed the melted ice cream the LEDs were working and showing a fridge temp of about 40 (not too high) and a freezer temp of about 30 (way too high). Cycling the power off and on caused the compressor to come on but now the LEDs don't work at all. When I press the buttons to adjust temperature or activate TurboCool I hear beeps so I believe it has some spark of life left within it. I don't know what the temps are currently but the fridge feels normal and the freezer feels too warm (but ice packs are freezing).

To remedy this I replaced the board that has the LEDs on it (WR55X10522) but the problem persists: no working LEDs but the buttons make beeping noises when pressed. I'm going to return the part but I don't know where to go from here. I have a multimeter, basic tools, and enough electrical know-how that I won't stick my finger in the socket more than once.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You might look at the board the led board plugs into.  Without knowing this model, I would assume there is a larger board that powers the led board.  Is that the case?

Thanks for the reply. Based on this warranty document, would my unit qualify? It has a serial number of TH057030.

The LEDs are part of the board that I already tried replacing. That board has a ribbon cable that connects to the interior of the panel and what appears to be a power cable that leads to the innards of the refrigerator shell. I believe the ribbon cable is just for the buttons on the LED panel (which seem to work). I can only assume that the power cable also has some sort of data wire built into it so it can activate the compressor when the temperature gets too warm or when I press my Turbocool button.

I also have a GE Profile dishwasher (board went out on it while it was under warranty) and a GE Profile microwave (it locked up and I had to "reboot" it by cycling the power). The only intact appliances I have left are the range (also a GE Profile) and my toaster!

I'm going to call my electric company tomorrow and inquire about their appliance warranty plan. Any thoughts on those plans? I believe this one is called ServicePlus from Centerpoint Energy/Minnegasco.

I found the service manual for the similar, bottom (non-French) door fridge PDS22

I could email it to you.   1 MB

It may be your control board.
