SOURCE: GE TPX24BPBGBB fresh food section won't cool

Have you noticed any ice built up on the rear freezer wall? it is very likely that you have a defrost problem situation,IE: Heater,Defrost Thermostat,Defrost Timer any failure in these components will cause an icing problem and therefore you will not get sufficient air flow to the Food Compartment

SOURCE: Freezer and Fridge side not cooling

Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: GE PCG23NHMF side by side fridge freezer - stopped cooling

Although this machine is supposed to be frost-free (i.e. automatic defrost), there was a build up of frost. We manually defrosted the machine, then restarted it - the noise has stopped and the freezer and fridge are now working. However, this may be a temporary solution.

SOURCE: ge profile side by side model #pss27nsw. fresh

Hi,
Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.
Another problem that can come up is that the defrost coil it's self can fail.... this is less common a problem, but it can happen. If you have an Ohm meter it is real easy to check the coil. If it has resistance then it is good.


I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Coils frzg up in freezer section refrig side to warm. changed terminator and heater.i have a ge sxs gss22wgmd.


well i wonder if you have changed both the white sensor part number WR55X10025. This is the sensor that tells the mother board to go into defrost. The other terminator is only a backup safety stat. If this dont solve your defrost problem. Then change the motherboard.

The refrigerator is not cooling


If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

Ice is building up in the freezer, all else seems to be working OK. Food has ice all over it.


If your Fridge is a "no-frost" or self-defrosting unit, it could be that the auto defrost timer and/or defrost heater element has failed. The first thing to check, if all other functions seem to be working, is the defrost heating element. This can be done fairly easily by removing all contents of the freezer and removing the access floor (top freezer style), or the other panels (side-by-side style) to see the defrost element. You can check online for a diagram of your particular refrigerator model to see the exact location of the defrost element and how to get at it.

If the element can be checked with an ohm meter, (unplug AC power cord to fridge 1st!!!) you might be able to quickly determine that the element has failed, sometimes you can actually see a break in the element, but usually, you need to check for continuity to determine if it's good or bad. Rarely, I've found a loose connector on the element causing intermittent defrosting, but it is rare these days in the manufacturing process/testing.

If the defrost element is bad, via test, then the likelyhood that is the problem. Get a new one and re-install and you should be OK.

Otherwise, it MIGHT be the defrost timer, but experience has shown that the defrost element is prone to fail more often than the timer unit.

Water dispenser not working & fridge and freezer not getting cold


okay, most likely, your problem is your fan motor, its making your evaporator becoming a block of ice freezing your water lines but its not circulating the cold air through your refrigerator. remove the panel from inside the freezer and see if it has become a big white block of ice and the fan motor is turning. some fan motors will not work with the door open so you must manually press the light switch and see if the fan is blowing air.
if fan blades are not turning, replace the fan motor. but if it is blowing air and there's a big block of ice, unplug your fridge and let it thaw out. if after melting your fridge is running again, there's something wrong with your defrost system. that means check and replace your defrost heating element, defrost thermostat and or defrost timer.
i hope that helps with your problem. good luck!

How do I force a defrost on a ge sxs gss20iepcww It is not a touch pad control ref. It has 2 knobs


on all ge electronic models produced since 2000 the main power lead to the main board can be jumped to test either defrost or compressor operation.to do this unplug the unit and locate the 3 wire plug (usually blue in color) .unplug the harness from the board and create a jumper wire to by pass the board.the terminals on the board will be identified as line,compressor and heater.to put unit in defrost install jumper between line and htr or def .this will ck the defrost sys.once unit is plugged in with jumper in place the heater will come on.if the heater does not come on look for a defective heater or defrost t/stat.hope this helps.

Stuck in defrost mode after changing timer and thermostat


Amana adaptive defrost:

Press refrigerator light switch five times in six seconds to initiate defrost cycle. Pressing five more times within six seconds will cancel defrost and go straight into the run mode. Similar operation on both bottom mount and SxS refrigerators. After the defrost terminator/thermostat opens, six minutes of dwell time occurs before the compressor and condenser fan motor will operate. After defrost terminator/thermostat open, 10 minutes of dwell time occurs before the evaporator fan motor will operate.

I have a GE SxS that I bought in Sept. 06. About


First you need to turn the freezer temp control back on(That just turned the whole refrigerator off)
The water dispenser may have stopped due to line freezing inside the refrigerator.
The ticking could have been the the element for the defrost cycle or the starter on the compressor.
So,turn it back on,set the temp to a normal setting and if the ticking is still there,wait 30 minutes to see if it stops,If no ticking is there when you restart it,wait 24 hour and check the temp inside as well as the water and ice dispenser,If all work,It is a defrost issue.If so you will either need a defrost timer,defrost element,or defrost thermostat.
If the ticking is still there,You will need to replace the start/run capacitor.
