GE refrigerator non defrost issue with Mother Board

This procedure will define the issue with a non defrost issue in all GE refrigerators controlled by a Mother Board.

Description of Non Defrost.

Are you noticing a drop in temperature in the refrigerator and or a frosting of the lower rear back panel of the freezer. This would indicate a non defrost issue. There are four reasons for this to ocurr.The four reasons will be adressed in the instrutional video I have posted below.

The tech has set up in the back ground a G.E. freezer section to demonstrate an actual scenairo.

Click on the link

You will need the print to the Mother Board.....The Mother board controls all aspects of the unit. Because you have a defrost issue do not think that it is because of the mother board. Most of the time it is just the defrost heater that is bad. If the defrost heater is bad remember to always change out the defrost thermostat also. Note the can check all aspects of the unit from here....

I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator/freezer that's not maintaining cold temperatures. I was told to replace the defrost thermostat which I did and it seemed to work for about a week or so. But now it's...

If the refrigerator isn’t cooling at all the motherboard is a good possibility burnt marks or not. If the fans are not running it could be a defective fan, motherboard or both. Take a look at this page

If the refrigerator isn’t defrosting properly, after a few days the freezer coils will get blocked out with heavy frost. There are four things that will cause this, defrost thermostat, defrost heater, evaporator thermistor and the motherboard. This page should help

Stops cooling ice melts and leaks water on the floor

That model refrigerator uses the mother control board for deciding when defrost is to take place. It has no defrost timer or Adaptive Defrost Control like other refrigerators. This sounds like *********** board part number WR55X10942 is malfunctioning. The board decides most functions of your refrigerator. Until the board is replace I do not believe the problem will resolve itself. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge never stops

How to check everything
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Defroster cycle stuck

Unfortunately GE has been having a problem with the main mother boards on your model refer, the mother board controls the defrost cycle and there is not reset for it, you may have a bad board.

It sounds like the relay could be stuck closed on the electric side of the board. This would not allow the element to stop working. Sometimes resetting the board will fix this problem if it is still under warranty they will cover both the board or the resetting.
