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.

GE profile side by side fridge freezing and thawing randomly


Defrost entire unit, put food in coolers with ice and unplug. Wait 24 hours with doors open. Any clogs in freon lines should be gone, plug unit back in and see how it works.

Side by side GE TFT28PFBBWW freezer ok, refrigerator side cools interminently, most of the times does not cool at all


The problem is defrost.

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Fridge running but not cooling


It sounds like you are having a problem with your defrost cycle. If your unit either does not go into defrost, or you have a defective defrost componet, it will cause your evap. to freeze. Hope this helps

Evaporator coil freezing over


You are probably correct, the auto defrost sub-system is faulty -- and probably the timer. You'll have to take the back panel out of the freezer to see the defrost timer.

Maytag MZD2766GES side-by-side Refrigerator warm


is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...
