Should the heater come on every time the compressor stops running on a ge gss201embww???


The cycle is controlled by an electric or electronic timer: For every six to 12 hours of compressor operation it runs a defrost heater element for about 15 minutes to a half hour.

Chris@crimmen.co.ukHi my Whirlpool gold fridge freezer is working well but has started tripping the electrics in the house each time it is switched on and the motor strarts - can you help please? Chris


its either the ptc overload on the compressor body or the start winding on the compressor itself,you will need to have a person with a clamp-probe check the starting/running currents and see how large a current this unit draws at start-up and run,then if too high a draw,its probably a bad compressor motor winding

GSS201EMBWW Unit is freezijng up.


Most likely part number WR51X10101 Defrost Heater has burned out. Unplug and remove the rear panel inside the freezer. Defrost with a hair dryer and examine the defrost heater and look to see if burned out, It has a glass tube around the heater element and will be easy to see if burned out. If you need to replace the defrost heater you should also replace the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10054 If you don't see a problem with the defrost heater and I will instruct you on how to manually defrost to test the heater and defrost thermostat. Check for bad connections on wiring to heater and defrost thermostat. Your model has a mother control board part number WR55X10942 We may also need to check that because it does the thinking and determines the time for defrost. Let me Know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Need location of defrost timer


The refrigerator you listed does not have a defrost timer. All defrost and refrigerator functions are controlled on rear of the refrigerator. It's called a mother board. If it s damaged you will sometimes see burns on one of the both sides, but not always. Another problem could be that your defrost element or defrost thermostat is defective. You can see your refrigerator below by putting the model GSS201EMBWW into the model search feature. I am here to help you if you want, Thanks Sea Breeze

Control Pad displays Er CO.


The Er Co error code signifies a communication error between the display control board on the freezer door and the main power board on the outer back panel of the refrigerator.

Check the wiring and connections between the low voltage interface and the main high voltage board.

If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover over the control board on the back of the refrigerator,
you can check the wiring connection on the main control board.

If this wiring connection is okay, check the wire harness connection under the hinge cover on the top of the left hand refrigerator door.
If these connections are okay, then you will need access the wire harness connection in the dispenser.
