SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator defrost problem

CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.

SOURCE: GE GSL22JFPH BS refrigerator, coils icing up

I'm in the process of fixing the same problem on a GSS22JEPDWW right now. There are several parts in the defrost circuit that I can tell:
1) Defrost Heater
2) DefrostThermostat
3) Temp Sensor (Thermistor)
4) Main Control Board
I've replaced the Defrost Heater (remove back panel of freezer section - it's a stainless steel bracket that has a glass bulb in it) and it still doesn't work. The main control card provides power to the heater 4 times every 24 hrs for 25 minutes or so to defrost the evaporator coils. If all items are working, you'll see water in the drip catch at the bottom inside of the freezer compartment. Better yet, pull the refer away from the wall for 24 hrs and check if water is gathering below the plastic drain on the right rear of the refer in the pan. The water drips into a pan and the fan for the condensor coil evaporates it. Go to the www.ge.com website and look in the service section to find the parts diagram for your refer. You can then get a part number to buy the parts you need from a local parts store or the Internet.
I just bought the thermostat a few minutes ago and will try that next. Heater was $37, thermostat was $15. Sensor is about $20 and the control card is $140 (you can find on line for $95). I'm going down that path. If none of this works, it'll be in the dump in a week.
I've learned on-line GE refers are bad news. The control cards can fail repeartedly, althoough mine has worked for over 4 years. But, I won't ever buy another one since refers should last at least 15 years in my book. After $200, it doesn't pay to throw more good money after bad. I'll keep you posted on my results.

GE model GSS22JERF BB keep hearing loud howling noise coming from the freezer size. Don't know the cause


Uh-huh... Ivy Joseph,

Well ...
unless your cat is missing that characterization is going to need some EXPANSION... clarification... definition.
..
The door is open/closed has no impact on "howling"...??

The unit is OTHERWISE WORKING... (????)
or some issues have accumulated to attract your attention.

Your diagram shows a pretty standard side x side configuration...

a "WORKING" refrigerator won't be howling. An iced up refrigerator can encase the EVAPORATOR FAN... and the howling will be that fan shaft spinning in a FROZEN FAN.

The noise should stop on OPENING the door...

Iced up... can come from several sources
- huge air intrusion
- Defrost circuit failure

Go to the location below to get an idea of how our machine fits together...

The part depicted is the second LEAST LIKELY
failure point (defrost thermostat)... First least likely
is the defrost heater element...

Most likely... DEFROST TIMER (or PCB)

Hope this helps... comment me back with progress questions (I'm usually here daily)

Evaporator coil freezes up. i have to manually defrost unit every 2 weeks or so.


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 heater, defrost thermostat.
. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the motherboard.

My GE Side by side is not cooling. I believe it is the defrost heater, how do you replace this?


The defrost thermostat is located behind the freezeer firewall, on top of the evaporator.

It is part 240 on the diagram below:

Freezer works fridge does not on a GE GSS22QGMC BB


you need to take freezer evaperator cover off , then turn it to defrost and test the supply voltage across the defrost element. if no volts then test the round disk looking thing with 2 wirers comming out of it . with the supply power removed from the power point, the coil frozen up , disconnect these wirers and use a continuity checker such as a multy meter on diode check or buzzer mode, you should have a closed circuit through the defrost termination thermostat (round disk with 2 wirers) , it is in series with the defrost element thus cutting the power to the element if the coil temp gets too high and terminates the element , the timer will time out after it's time duration is reached. A good way to test the motor in the timer is to put a texta mark on the dial of the timer and check it in 1/2 hr, to see if it has moved.AFTER YOU HAVE PUT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS BACK AFTER TESTING THE TERMINATIN THERMOSTAT AND MADE IT SAFE, YOU WOULD PLUG IT BACK IN.
The defrost timer needs to be connected to power of the fridge to opperate.
