Question about GE GSS25SGPSS Side by Side Refrigerator
There is obviously a problem with the defrost cycle.
Are you able to defrost it manualy ?
After cleaning it out and turning on again, set to -18 degrees in the freezer, and +2 in the fridge, and see if the fault continues.
Check the door seals are sealing properly by trying to grip a piece of paper with them. Any loose spots will indicate you need new door seals.
After this, the electric heater element needs testing with a meter set to ohms or continuity. Open circuit is bad - and a new heater is needed.
The other thing to check is the safety-cut out on the heater. This also needs to show continuity. If moisture gets in, it can corrode and fail, check also for a bad connection.
If both these are fine, then it may be a fault on the control board, which can be replaced,but check the cheaper options first.
Thank you for using Fixya.
