Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE side by side refrigerater is not cooling on one side.

I have a GE side by side refrigerater (GSS22wgphww). The refrigerator side is not cooling at all. I notice that the inside of my freezers back wall is frosted. I took the panel off and notice the coils where frozen. so I defrosted the coils and plugged the fridge back in and about two weeks had past and now its frozen again. What do I now?

Sounds like ayou could be having a problem with the defrost system pull the back cover off and you will see a metal bracket about half way up the coils and one at the bottom some models just have the one at the bottom these are defrost heaters check and see if one is burned out if so defroset replace heater and you will be ok if heaters are good check at the top of the coils there is a small round thing cliped onto one of the coil lines with 2 wires coming out of it this is a defrost bimetal or defrost thermostat now for this check the bimetal has to be cold and you need an ohm meter it is a simple test when cold it should read close which with and anolog meter will peg the neddle a digital will read 0.0 -0.2 this means this part is good if the needle does not move or you get no reading it is bad replace it now if the heaters and bimetal are good there is and evaporator thermister also located on the evapoator it is a small white look like a small bulett it could be sending the wrong information to the mother board this part is about 10.00 and the mother board on theif you still have a problem im afraid to say you mother board is bad replace it and you should be good to go with out all the snow it runs about 150 - 200 dollars depending on who you get it from.
