GE compressor inverter
« on: December 07, 2015, 09:08:53 AM »

I need an inverter for a GE side by side refrigerator PSW23PSRBSS
On the inverter it has what looks like a model number VCC3 1156 01 A 61
The inverters that I have found have numbers like VCC3 1156 18 F 06 or VCC3 1156 09801
What do these numbers mean and are they compatible.

Thank you
R Anderson

If the replacement inverter says VCC3 and the amp ratings match, it should work. The blue nightmare had us use whatever we had on hand all the time and (surprisingly) never had a repeat.

But, when in doubt, use the specified replacement.

Thanks so much for the reply. i assume the amp ratings being 3.3A. That would be great if its that easy since the price differences on some of these are hundreds of $$$! Of course the one mine calls for seems to be the most expensive.

Thanks again!!

LowSL2,

I cannot thank you enough for your reply!!! The inverter that my refrigerator calls for is listed at $562. Based on the information you shared in your reply to my original post I found a new GE inverter on Amazon. Although the GE part number was different the replacement part started with the VCC3 and the amps were listed at 3.3A just like the old one. I installed it and the compressor started up and the refrigerator is fixed and working great!!! THE BEST PART IS, INSTEAD OF PAYING $562 I BOUGHT MINE NEW FOR $150!!!!!
You my friend are a life saver and with an 8yr old at Christmas time it was a welcomed gift not having to spend that extra money on my ungrateful refrigerator!! Thanks again!!!
