    I have a bottom freezer unit. I removed the cover under the refrigerator section and there was a lot of ice. I don't understand what you mean by: "IF SO YOU HAVE YOU DEFROST HEATER ,. DEFROST BY-METAL OR // TIMER OR MOTHER BOARD .. " Please explain. Thank you so much.

Check to see if the evaporator fan is running (the fan inside of the freezer behind the back panel). If it is, pull the interior back panel off of the freezer to see if you have a defrost problem. If there is a large amount of frost/ice, test the heater and defrost thermostat with a multimeter. If they are good, replace the defrost thermostat. Be sure to defrost the ice manually with a hair dryer before you put the freezer back together.

Top part of fridge is not cooling ?? but the freezer is just fine..


check temp. control, adjust to proper setting. check vents for cold air flow, if theres no air flow, check the freezer,side> check fan, if fan is running, then pull panel out, if there is ice build up behind panel, then you need to check bi-metal, timer and posibly the resistance. good luck.

My GE refrigerator GDS18LBPWW with freezer on bottom does not cool in the refrig. section. Yesterday, I pd $239 to have the Evaporator Fan motor replaced. The freezer is fine and back down to 26, but the...

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.



The ideal temp for the freezer is around 10 degrees F.
Look at the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer and check the ice forming on the coils.

Sides of freezer extra hot


The problem with the fan is causing this. We need to test the fan motor and the power going to the fan motor. Let me know, Sea Breeze
