Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator
A couple days ago I noticed the ice maker quit and the fridge was a little warm as the soda pop inside was not as cool as usual. Then eventually the freezer while still cool was allowing things inside to thaw and the fridge was now not even cool. Prompted to find out what was wrong I started digging around. I noticed a couple things... The compressor was running all the time and hot and the freezer had ice formed on the outside of the back panel. Took the back panel out and had ice all over the inner coils. Took a hair dryer and defrosted the coils dried it out and plugged it back in. It started making ice again immediately but the fridge side still doesn't seem cool enough yet. Talked to a friend of mine who thinks he is a Mr Fix It and he said the timer is out but I can't find it to check it. So 3 things.... Can you tell me if you think this is the timer.... How do I check it... and where is the timer at on this model... As I look up I noticed that I am on the wrong description... This is a GE side by side TFX22CR.
Defrost timer is in the refrigerator side behind the panel where the light is located on the upper right corner. You need a straight head screw driver to turn it very slowly until you hear a click that is louder than the other clicks or until the fan stops running. I'm trying to find out how long it should be off myself. Mine went about 30 minutes. If the heaters coils are working you should be able to see them glowing through the grill at the bottom of the freezer.
