Tip & How-To about Refrigerators
This is a Common Problem specially in GE Refrigerators. There are lot of Complaints that, the Refrigerator Section is Working Perfect and it is ONLY the Freezer that won't Defrost.
We have Checked Defrost Heater and Thermostat and still Problem remains the same.On Old Models, you would Find Defrost Timer and in newer Models, Defrost Cycle is Controlled by Motherboard.
Bingo!! you are Correct. The motherboard is again a major Problem and there had many Recalls regarding the same in the past. I would advise you to Check Directly with GE regarding Recall for motherboard.
The other Symptoms of Motherboard Failure Could be :-
1. Dispenser Board Failure
2. Evaporator Fan Motor Failure.
Keep a check on it.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
