    Are GE defrost timers interchangable between models?

  • Kathy Madison Nov 09, 2012

    I've been doing some more research and I think the model # must be PSH23sgna bs

    Would a board be required instead of a defrost timer?

The defrost timer is part of the control board. If the unit is not defrosting, you will need to replace the board. Here is the part to order.




The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Wow, so you dropped some money into it, eh? I would take a look at the damper door asslb(DIFFUSER). located at the very top left of your refrigerator section in back. It has a motorized door that opens and close's and it may be stuck open. More than likely it is broken and needs to be replaced. GOODLUCK!!!!

FYI: All your cold air in your refrigerator comes from your freezer!

SOURCE: GE Profile Side by Side is getting too cold on the fridge side.

I have a GE refrigerator with the same problem of my food freezing in the refrigerator. I spoke to an appliance part person and they sold me a temperature sensor for 20 bucks. They said it would be located in the control panel, but I took the control panel off and can't find the sensor. I'm now looking on yahoo answers to find out where the sensor is located.

This problem is usually caused by a blown defrost heater in the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, remove the back lower panel inside the freezer. Defrost the aluminum evaporator coils. At the bottom of the evaporator is your defrost heater with two wires going to it. Remove the two screws holding it on and pull the heater out carefully. You will usually have to jockey it from one side to the other to remove it. It is a glass tube heater with an element running through it. If it is blown, it usually is black. You can do a continuity test on it also, to be sure. If it is good you can easily see the complete heater inside the glass. One of the wires goes up to the defrost thermostat which is usually clamped onto the top of the evaporator. Inspect this also to see if the top has seperated from the round base or if it is pushed out. Replace if it has blown. You can only do a continuity test on this if the defrost thermostat is colder that 50 degrees. This is a very common repair, I carry two of the replacement defrost heaters, and I always check for this first when I see a defrost problem with this model. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Your defrost timer is inside the fresh food compartment and behind and inside the control panel. Part number WR09X0489. I will show you a photo location. Be right back, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Freezer n refrigerator is warm at 78 degrees

If the compressor is running it either has broken valves or the refrigerant has leaked out. Without knowing more than the information you've provided I would start with the basics. Does the fridge have power? Can you hear both the condenser and evaporator fans running? Have you checked the coils under the fridge to see if they are clean?

Refrigerator is too cold (28 degrees)


this is likely one of the thermistors on the fresh food side has failed. They are usually located under a small cover inside the fridge. They should have a reading of 15.5k-16.5k ohms at 72 degrees. They are easy to check and replace. Here is a link that should help. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. http://appliancehelponline.com/sxsfreshthermistor.html
