GE refrigerator won't keep cool


check the voltage going into you fan w/ the old main board and also w/ the new board. You might be getting a low voltage w/ your new board or the fan you replaced is for a diferent voltage. Have you tried to put the old fan back w/ the new board??

Evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control


It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice building up in freezer


Due to the frosting up, The glass defrost heater broke. Any good tech knows this happens. The defrost heater must be replaced. If this is a GE side by side. The new replacement heater has dual elements. The standard heater that was put in them, was not large enough to defrost the coils fully. Replace heater and you should be fixed up. I would also replace the thermostat while you are in the freezer section they are only like 15 bucks and this way you will have a new defrost circuit.

The defrost heater must be replaced when the defrost T-stat is replaced.
The main control board located on the rear of the fridge controls defrost sequence.

Defrost issues


If it's around 2-3 years old, my first guess would be the heater is bad. The GSS models have problems with the heater almost always about that time.

Test the heater and the defrost thermostat for continuity with a multimeter. Whichever one doesn't get continuity is bad and should be replaced. If they are both good and the evaporator fan is running like it should, it will be the main control board located on the back of the unit.

Let me know if you have any other questions about this issue.
