Need some help, never seen this problem before
« on: April 26, 2014, 11:37:11 AM »

I am working on a GE Refrigerator model number PSS26SGRD SS. No matter what setting it is on, When you push the ice dispenser lever the entire refrigerator shuts down; compressor, lights, everything, like its unplugged. I tried replacing the whole dispenser board, but that did not do anything. I am thinking the main board or maybe a wiring issue? I am at a loss

Sounds like main board for sure.
