Thermistor adapters for GE Refrigerators

These resistors allow complete test of the motherboard. By varying the resistance value you can trick the controller to go into modes regardless of the refridgerator temperature.

With some patience and a couple of hours, you can make your own.

Image below shows the inside of a "Hot" adapter we use in the lab. Note that 4 pins pass through to the fridge connector. These pass throughs are personality pins that tell the motherboard what model of fridge it is controlling

Three values recommended:

Use the following resistors values to make the 3 adapters that we recommend for basic troubleshooting of GE fridges.

Hot Adapter: R1,R2,R3,R4 = 2.2Kohms
Cold Adapter: R1,R2,R3,R4 = 110Kohms
Warm/Cool Adapter: R1,R2 = 10Kohms; R3,R4 = 50Kohms
