Question about GE Refrigerators
We noticed the back wall of the freezer was iced up.There also were no ice cubes being made by the ice maker. The freezer contents were becoming unfrozen and the main fridge was warmer and some foods were smelling.
I took the back inside panel of the freezer off and used a hair dryer to clear the ice. I found the screw that turns the fan on, and clicked it until the fan turned of.I waited an hour for the ice to form in the freezer coils in the freezer. I checked the freezer area and saw that the orange tube was not lit..
What do i do now? the compressor has been hot this whole time..
Check the heater unit.
You need an OHM meter. Set them meter to OHM and touch the two leads together and you should get a reading. The exact number of OHM's is not important for this test. You are only checking for continuity. Touch one lead to one end of the heater unit and one to the other, this will tell you if this unit has a break inside. If no reading, replace the heater.
Check the thermostat disk.
This is a small round disk (nickle size) clipped to the coils right where they come into the freezer. Check it the same as the heater. This disk must be below 32 degrees to show continuity. If there is any doubt just replace it, not that expensive.
