GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out....


This is how the defrost works . I have NEVER found a defrost problem associated with a bad main control board since these computerized GE's came out in 2000 . Lots of thermistor problems , lying to the board , causing different problems .
Your GSS model refrig does not have a defrost timer . It works off of the main control board . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10101 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature .

Your idea may be a good idea and worth trying. I would suggest if you do so, you perform a complete shut down, 24 hours minimum. This machine has been hell on wheels. Restart and check it's progress. I would suggest that you shut off the water supply to the machine during this time to eliminate complications.
As well, make sure the lights go out when the doors are closed.
The lights go out just before the door closes.
All settings to normal.
If the problem restarts I would call G.E. factory service direct and request a free service call. They owe you.

GE Fridge, Compressor not getting power from mother board


I asked that because in most cases, when it is a problem in a motherboard, it is likely a power surge or lightening. I can also tell you that when it comes to mother boards and component level, likelihood, it isn't transistors or anything unless it smells or looks burned. Most shops would just replace the motherboard and ship it as repaired becaue the cost of the IC isn't worth the possibility of something in another IC on the same board knocking iit out again. Short of plug and play, you have no real way of proving this board good/bad. You might try EBAY with your model number to see if you get lucky. I just got rid of an electronic stove because the control board went bad. New board was $150 with a possibility of it going out in 6 months. As I am not made of money, I now have a gas stove. I you could, please rate this as a fixya as I am just being honest and saving you time and aggrivation. Good luck

Hard disk drive not found


It seems to me that the Hard drive or main board is damaged. To try this suggestion connect your hard drive to another computer and hope it DOES NOT WORK reason you are hoping this is cause if it does work you will need a new main board. I'm really sorry I cant do any more than that cause i know parts dont come for free. I have debated your issue for quite some time and i must say that is what is boils down to Unfortunately. When you try this and figure out which of the 2 is bad let me know and i will see how best i can assist. One thing that you may try if its the board is flashing the bios. Search the net for the instructions of clearing the cmos for your particular system. I Do Pray that clearing the cmos will work.

Water/ice led indicator malfunction


Daniel, first check the harness that comes out of the freezer door bottom. Make sure it that is is connected right and there are no wires broken or pinched. Then check the dispenser board connectors. On the back right there is a main mother board. On harness J4, top left, 5 pin harness, check for a steady 12V DC voltage on pins J4-1 and J4-2, numbers reads from left to right. If you have this voltage, replace the dispenser control board. If you don't replace the main mother board. Catriver..post back.
