The defrost timer is about the size of a cell phone, has about five wires going to it in a plug. It has a small dial on it that only goes one way. Mark the dial with whiteout and see if it moves. It moves real slowly, will take about a half hour to see any real movement. It should not tick, that would mean the gears are probably broken. They are all very generic, you may get one out of a fridge that has other problems if your dealer wants too much for a new one.

How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig


When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

GE 17.2 freezer on top fridge on bottom. Freezer is cold, but fridge is warm. Help!


Is there any frost buildup on the rear panel inside the freezer? If so you have a defrost problem of a bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/ control board. If no frost then you probably have a clogged defrost drain. Remove the rear panel to access drain hole.

Neither freezer or fridge sides are getting cold enough. There was ice buildup on the back of freezer where the air comes out, but I removed all this and 2 hours later, still not cooling. Fan is running,...


You have a defrost problem. Common problem on most frost free refrigerators because the ice buildup does not allow efficient heat transfer to evaporator coil. You will need to remove the cover in the back of the freezer compartment (you know , where you scraped of the ice).When you remove panel you will see a buildup of ice on your evaporator coil. This will have to be thawed out by hairdryer or some other means before you move onto next step.Next you will see a heater element (black thingy ) or glass tubes with internal elements .These are your defrost heaters. They can usaully be visually inspected but best to use an ohmeter to check continuity.If you have good heaters you will want to put frig into defrost by manually turning the defrost timer clockwise untill you hear frig cut off. (Look for timer inside right frig compartment next to thermostat.) power will now be diverted to heaters and will get hot for duration of defrost cycle. If defrost thermostat is bad this could be the case of problem( round looking disk thingy clamped to coil and wired before heater) You can check by bypassing the defrost therm directly to heater and see if heater works while in defrost cycle.You will want to replace it as this is the device that turns off the heater so as not to overheat and melt plastic in freezer.Just reinstall everthing and you should be good to go.

At the top of the frig where the cold air blows into a small "vent" is it suppose to still have styrofoam the inside of the small "vent"? PC Water is leaking into frig and into veg bends.


most likely the drain is clogged..if it is, the water flows to the path of least resistance, hence, into the air vents and down under the crisper..remove rear freezer panel. the drain pan is located under evaporator. Defrost the drain pan if there is ice in it. there will be a small drain hole. this is where you need to see it gets open via hot water and all will be ok..make sure you hear or see it flowing into drain pan...Bruce Denton, master tech

Water from the freezer falling in fridge


Usually this is a Door seal problem or a blockage between the frig and freezer compartment. There is usually a Tube that allows water from the defrost cycle to drain down to the pan beneath your unit. If there is ice, food particles, etc blocking that will cause water to enter the frig causing the mess. Listen for a fan to be running inside the freezer....if you hear none, than this may be causing the ice buildup that melts when the unit goes into defrost. If you unplug the unit, take the back panel off inside your freezer you will see coils and the ice. Leave unit unplugged to defrost the freezer and drain tube.....It should work normally when you plug it back in. If not, then you have a defrost heater or thermostat, or control board problem that needs to be checked by a technician.
