Question about GE GSH22JFT Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The freezer is freezing up every 3-4 weeks

The refrigerator was purchased 02/07. In the last couple of months the freezer has frozen up every 3-4 weeks. The coils have always been kept clean. My only guess is that the defrost cycle is no longer working. But I can not find any information, other than general discussions, regarding the defrost cycle.

    I haven't received a solution for the problem. Just someone who has the same problem. Does anyone have the part number for the control board - I actually believe this is the problem.

YOUR DEFROST TIMER MAY BE BAD OR THE HEATERS ARE BAD. WHAT HAPPENS IS THE EVAPORATOR IS FROZE OVER WITH ICE AND CAN'T TRANSFER THE COLD . UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FOR A FEW HOURS (HAVE RAGS AND MOP READY) AND IT WILL WORK AGAIN TEMPORALLY . THE LESS YOU OPEN THE DOORS THE LONGER IT WILL LAST..

Without the specific refrigerator model, it's difficult to say but generally...

  1. If the coils inside the freezer are frozen solid with ice, the air can't flow.
    Also, the air needs to flow from the freezer to the refrigerator, but can't because of the ice.

    Defrost the freezer completely, if it freezes up again, check #2 or #3.
  2. The refrigerator control module or timer may be bad, and isn't telling the freezer to defrost at the regular interval.

    The control module/timer will have to be replaced.
  3. The heater wire in the freezer may be burned out, and would have to be replaced.
A control module could be $35-$100, around $30 for a heater wire, plus labor.
I'm not an appliance repair technician, these are only estimates from previous experiences.

Best of luck,
