What the Hell is Causing this Freezing Problem?

You mean besides the fact that it’s GE crap? Ok, well, freezing in the pans, a frozen water tank or a frozen water filter are all caused by excessive airflow from the vents in the tower.

Recommended Repair:

To eliminate these freezing issues, buy and install the veg pan temperature reduction kit. Follow the instructions included with the kit.

Note: Replacing the motherboard will do nothing to correct the freezing problems in these areas of the refrigerator.
