Put in a usted board to pruve the board is bad as I thought. It did started right up. Will be ordering a new board. Does the original GE board has been updated to improve its reliability? Or I'll be getting a original new part with a not long life reliability. What do you guys suggest about the GE replacement board made by Supco which cost half or less than half of the original GE one. It comes with a 1 year warranty?

The biggest fail of GEs boards (and a lot of others) was the use of 'counterfeit' electrolytic capacitors. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague. Unfortunately these bad caps would usually take out a lot of other things like fans and ice dispenser controls. Most of these boards have already failed and been replaced, and almost everything manufactured after 2007 (including TVs and Computers) don't use these caps.

PS: There was an unpublished sort of recall on the GE boards. Even though yours isn't listed you may want to contact GE and see what they'll do for you.
