Question about Refrigerators
We have a GE Model GSS25XSRDSS Refrigerator. Since we got it new the water tank has frozen two times so we changed it. Then we started to have problems with frost and also when it defrosted the ice in the ice bin would melt and make a mess like a frozen water fall in the freezer. So we changed the Defrost Thermostat, the Thermistor near the defrost thermostat and the Defrost Heater Assembly. When it defrosted the ice in the ice bin started to melt again and to drip from the bin and when it started to cool again and the water tank frozen again and it is cracked again for the third time and needs to be replaced. What can be the problems this time.

Yes that is right. Turn the Refrigerator off/ unplug it. Remove the rear panel of the freezer and thaw out the coils with a fan or hair dryer.
The most common problem is with the defrost heater. Using an ohm meter check the heater for continuity but unplug the 2 wires (one from each side). This should be a glass encased heater. you can also very gently pull both ends of the heater and if it is bad it will come apart instead of feeling "springy". If you have only one heater your new replacement will probably be a 2 heater kit.

the defrost thermistor is your problem: it is going low (turning off) the defrost circuit far too quickly; it is a solid state version of a gas filled cold control sensor.
It "tells" the adaptive defrost controller circuit board the condition: (frost level) of the evaporator and, intitiates the defrost mullion heater timer. if it turns off to soon defrost
mullion heaters turn off and, icing occurs. I do not know; right off hand: which boards you are alluding to; however I believe you are referring to the power supply board for the

Testimonial: "I will let you know after replacing the part if it fixed the problem. I tested the thermister at 32F and it shows no continuity(infinity). Many thanks"
