When the refrigerator is running ( cooling mode ) the defrost timer contacts prevents any power from getting to the defrost heater. When the defrost timer turns off the power to the compressor and fan motor(s) the power is then redirected to the defrost system. The defrost timer motor
 
Defrost thermostat:
During a defrost cycle, the defrost heater causes the metal alloy in the switch to warm and as it does it curls back and breaks the circuit. As the metal cools, it makes a closed circuit again. A defective thermostat can prevent the defrost heater from coming on or allow it to overheat which could result in heat damage or fire.
The defrost thermostat is located near the defrost heater and is wired in series. It is usually located at the back of a side by side freezer, behind the freezer back wall of a top freezer or under the floor. It will be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker and the inside rear or bottom panel of the freezer. At room temperature the defrost thermostat is an open circuit ( no continuity ) and when cooled down the defrost thermostat closes the circuit ( has full continuity ) to allow the defrost heater to come on.

The temperature setting in the fridge section of your refrigerator is generated by diverting a part of the cold air generated in the freezer. This is done with the help of a fan and is controlled with a thermistor. If the temperature doesn't drop low enough then either the fan is faulty and it will have to be replaced
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3875639
or it's not properly commanded because either the thermistor is faulty
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3185407
or the control board itself has failed and it continuously activates the defrost resistance

you may have a defrost problem, check for frost in freezer, back wall, or pull off rear panel and check evaporator, it should have some frost on coils, if frozen all around evaporator, check glass element at bottom of evaporator, should have blue and pink wire going to element

GE gsl25jfpabs Profile. Water stopped coming out of dispenser. Frozen? New valve? Help


Yes, probably frozen. Open the door, minimize the freezer setting in the refridgerator section, and try out the dispenser every once in a while until you get water to flow. Might take a couple of hours so make sure you have a backup freezer or a big cooler for your food.

My refrigerator is not cooling the freezer works


We have this refrigerator and what you described is a chronic problem. (I hate this refrigerator!) Our repairman got tired of hearing from us so often and told us how to fix it ourselves! Take everything out of the freezer side and unplug it. Remove the white back part inside the freezer part. There are 2 screws at the top. The inside will be full of ice. Melt the ice with warm water. It makes a huge mess so get lots of towels. Once all the ice is melted you can put everything back and plug it in. It may take a day for it to get really cool again. My long term advice is to get a new refrigerator...

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

I have a GE Profile PSC23. Everything works fine


I fixed it myself. After poking around the freezer, I saw that the area around the tube that gets water for ice making was frozen - this is at the top of the freezer. So I used a hot spong to melt the ice and the noise went away. Everything is working fine now.
