GE Americana freezer is not defrosting

I have frost building up on my GE side by side model A4425GDTAWW. Is there a place where I can buy/download the service manual that shows how to do diagnostics for this model?

GE Artica (pss26msrss) both the freezer and the refridgertor will not cool down...


Unplug and manually defrost with a hair drier because that ice you see on back wall of your freezer is a result of frost buildup behind that rear panel. Place all the frozen items in another safe place until the defrost is complete.Here is what your freezer may look like behind that rear panel. Not much cooling in freezer or fresh food section because this frost is blocking airflow.

Freezer defrosts, things melt then frost up


You have a defrost system failure. You can verify this by take off the rear shield of the freezer and looking at your evaporator coil. If it has a large amount of ice built up on it, then your defrost circuit is not functioning. The defrost circuit is made up of the heater (WR51X10055), the defrost thermostat (WR50X10068) that are located in the freezer section close to the evaporator coils and a timing circuit that is part of the main control board (WR55X10942) which is located in your component compartment at the lower rear.
NOTE: If you defrost the evaporator coils the refrigerator should operator normally for about two weeks (until the ice builds back up).
Hope this helps! Hal aka ImJustAvg

GE Side by Side, Frost Free, model TFF19DWB, frost beginning to build up in the freezer, freezer not freezing, and fridge not cooling enough.


You have bad defrost heater. Remove the back wall of the freezer and use ahir dryer to melt all of the ice from the coils. Replace the heater that is at the bottom of the coils and you will be good to go. Should be able to get the heater from any appliance parts store. Melting the ice off the evaporators will buy you about 5 days of cooling which should give plenty of time to get the heater changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Frost build-up freezer back wall


Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel and test the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch. The defrost heater is a very common problem with this model. You can check continuity on both the heater and bi-metal to detern which one need replaced. The bi-metal switch needs to be tested while it is could. If both of these parts prove to be ok, you will need to change the mother board.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Ref no cooling freezer okay


There's alot of things to check here, David. But, since it's a GE, I'll assume a defrost problem 'cause they are known for those issues. Is there ice/frost buildup on the rear wall of the freezer? If so, it's not defrosting. 3 things will cause a "no defrost" condition. Failed evaporator thermister, Failed defrost heater and failed electronic control. Your model has problems with the first 2, rarely the 3'rd. You can get your machine cooling again by manually defrosting it. Simple, unplug it for 24 hours and leave the freezer door cracked open an inch or so. After time is up, plug it back in and it'll cool just fine for a week maybe two, 'til the frost builds back up again. This'll buy you time to get parts and do the repair and besides... it has to be done anyway. Even if you had the parts in hand and did the repair right now, you'd still have to manually defrost it. Post back and let us know.
