Question about GE GSS20IEPWW / GSS20IEPCC Side by Side Refrigerator
My refrigerator/freezer does not defrost. I had someone look at it and he thought it needed a defrost timer which is built into the mainboard. So, he replaced the whole main board. It is still doing the same thing. The "snow" collects on the back freezer wall. When it gets about 1 in thick both the freezer and refrigerator stop cooling. If I unplug it and let it defrost (usually overnight) and plug it back up it will work fine for about 2 weeks and once the "snow" builds up again we have the same problem. Again, the whole mainboard has been replaced. Do you have any other suggestions?
Hello little G,
there are two more components that u need to check,
the defrost heater. ( heating element ) - it should have continuity ( low resistance )
and the bi-metal. ( should have continuity while the coil is covered with ice.) check it before you unplug the fridge.
the main board that you replaced is just the controller for defrosting.
tnx 4 using fixya,
