It appears that the defrost cycle is not working on my GE GSL25JFXB 1B. I need an electrical schematic of the refridgerator and the mother board to trouble shoot it. Where can I get one please. Thanks

There could a problem with the condenser fan as well. The cost will depend on what they find. Try calling a shop for an estimate. Mke sure they are authorized and qualified to work on your brand. Any warranty left?

SOURCE: Defrost not cycling

Pull the temp dial off inside the fresh foods section and then take the plastic light shield off. You should see a hole in the metal control housing now, on the right side, about the size of a nickel. There is a plastic part in there that you can turn with a flat blade screwdriver. Turn it very slowly clockwise until you hear a click. (Refrig should now be in defrost) If refrig turns itself back on before an hour is up, timer should be OK and I'd check the defrost heater WR49X391 for continuity. If refrig takes a hour or more and has not turned back on, manually turn the part again slowly until it clicks again and the refrig begins to run again. Order a new defrost timer WR9X502. Doors left open or bad door gaskets can also frost up a refrig and would require appropriate action to correct those situations.

SOURCE: GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked

This is how the defrost works . I have NEVER found a defrost problem associated with a bad main control board since these computerized GE's came out in 2000 . Lots of thermistor problems , lying to the board , causing different problems .
Your GSS model refrig does not have a defrost timer . It works off of the main control board . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10101 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature .

SOURCE: I have a GE refrigerator

you can jumper the board where the line cord enters the board,it will say comp/defrost/neutral in the center,jumper between the center terminal and the outer one that says defrost,if it still doesnt defrost you need to disconnect the defrost heater and check for continuity,then do the same with the defrost thermostat,but the thermostat needs to be below freezing to test it or it will show open(bad) the heater will show some resistance to be good

I am wondering if a bad despenser contrl board could cause my ge side by side refrigirator frezzer modle # GSL25JFXB LB COULD CAUSE TO FREZZ BUT NOT COOL THE FRIG


No ... dispensor control has nothing to do with what you are describing...

TOTAL DEFROST circuit failure... MOST PROBABLE.

Note: appliancepartspros has 365 day return/guarantee...
You can order all your parts and return in-used or BROKEN parts...

Pull your defrost pan and check for ANY moisture...
(should get wet ABOUT twice each day...

(put typing paper in pan... you will see if it GOT WET).

No water = defrost failure...
- timer/control (good possibility)
- heater element (rare)
- defrost thermostat (most likely)

Check your model number and compare parts numbers. Ideal part number source is from you 'ORIGINAL OWNER'S DOCUMENTS".

SEARS (searspartsdirect.com) has a pretty decent technical library.. but their parts usually TOP the market...

You get the very same parts EVERYWHERE... so this is an excellent time to shop around (see below)...

~~

Ice/frost has the flow of cool air blocked...

It will continue to get thicker until only the very bottom of your FREEZER will continue to work (very poorly).

Not a difficult fix... just make sure to take USEABLE PICTIRES before taking things apart...
(look at them... like you need them for re-assembly).


Good luck, hope this helps...

My GE refrigerator is no longer cooling. Model GSH25JSTC SS. I just replaced the mother board WR55X10942 and it is still not cooling. Water dispenser, fan is working fine.


Is the compressor running? Is it any good? Is the thermostat control working and cycling the compressor on? Is the self defrost mechanism stuck in defrost cycle (shuts down compressor), etc?

Is the motor getting power?
U need to check all of these areas.

The freezer coils load up with ice and stop air flow to the refridgerator and freezer


Likely Defrost heater built into coils. Secondly defrost thermostat mounted at top of coils or computer board in rear that controls defrost cycle. Check heater and thermostat continuity first after unplugging unit.

Where is the defrost timer located on ge side bty side model gss25jfmdww


Hi, This model has a mother board instead of a defrost timer. If you are having a defrost issue, the first part you want to test is the defrost heaters. If you need instruction on testing the defrost cycle, please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

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.

I have a frigidaire package heat pump,in heat mode it goes into defrost everytime it runs for a few minutes,no matter what the outdoor temp.is..it runs about five minutes or so and goes into defrost for...


That is usually caused by either lack of airflow through the outdoor coils. (Dirty coils, need cleaning)
Bad defrost board. (needs to be diagnosed with multimeter and extensive explinations and/or experience to be sure)
Low refridgerant, causing premature freeze up and in turn causing frequent defrost cycle. (Recharge to proper pressures with proper refridgerant type. Requires EPA certification for use of refridgerant, you would also need refridgerant guages, temperature reading device, and refridgerant.)
