Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE Side by Side 6 years old. Fan seems to be running in Freezer and and also the fan outside the fridge in the lower back is also running. The compressor feels hot. The freezer is cooling to around 36 degrees F. and the fridge side is around 60 degrees. The ice-maker is not working. Any solutions greatly appreciated.
Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

DIRECTIONS INDICATE CONDENSOR BASE BUT SHOULD INDICATE EVAPERATOR BASE AND ALTHOUBH AN OPEN HEATER WOULD GIVE A O OHMS READING KNOWING THE OEM OHMS RATING WOULD BE MORE HELPFUL IN DETERMINING OUTPUT OF REQUIRED HEAT
