I don't have the perfect answer but most times the sensor is attached to the thermostst control knob and the pobe/sensor is is on the end of a small tube leading away from the contol and has a mounting clip. Inside the fresh cood compartment and behind the control panel.Sea Breeze

Different models have different locations so you first need to find the equipment id tag and give us the model number from that tag so that we can look up the documentation on it.

Which temp sensor did you replace? The one that clips to the top of the cooling coils is the defrost sensing thermistor. The other "temp limit sensor" is thermal cutoff switch that opens the defrost circuit should it get to warm. Be sure you got the right part for this! There are a couple of different temperature rated cutoff thermostats out there and this model uses a pretty high temp rating.
As to your question of manually putting it into defrost, you would need to unplug the refrigerator and disconnect the power ******** of the control board (the only jack that mounts parallel to the board and should be a green colored three wire connector. The terminals on the board should be labeled "comp", "line or L" and "def". You will need to put a jumper wire between the line and def wires on the wire connector (not on the board). Plug the fridge back in and your defrost circuit should be energized.
Good luck with this!

In my GE side-by-side there is a defrost temp sensor located near the top of the evaporator coil. I think the control board uses that temp sensor to know when it should be done defrosting.

On the schematic of my fridge (link below), the defrost thermistor is part number 240 in the diagram (not part number 241, which is a different temp sensor located adjacent to the one you want)

I don't know why the defrost element would fail immediately other than incorrect supply voltage or just a bad defrost element.

Turbo cool will not turn off in GE side-by-side refrigerator. Replaced circuit board...still stays on


There are three temp sensors in my GE side-by-side model GSS20IEMDWW (two in the freezer and one in the fresh food side). Replacing the temp sensor in the fresh food side was enough to allow the compressor to finally turn off.

For me, the problem manifested with an iced-over evaporator coil inside the freezer compartment. Since the compressor never cycled off (presumably because the temp sensor was providing faulty data about the temp inside the fresh food side, thus causing it to continually attempt to cool), the coils were constantly chilled. Eventually the ice on the coils would block the air flow and the freezer side could no longer freeze

I purchased a pair of inexpensive thermometers from a kitchen store and put one in the freeze and one in the fresh food side so I could occasionally look at the temps to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running - ie, was it really a warm-enough temp for cooling to be required, or was the computer reading faulty sensor data.

Six months later I also needed to replace both temp sensors in the freezer compartment. My refrigerator is about seven years old. I would recommend replacing all of the temp sensors just to rule that out.

Your model may be different, but this will give you an idea of part numbers and relative locations of the parts.

Doesnt get cold


Ok, you will need to replace the Thermistor. This is a temperature sensor that is damaged. It is unable to register a true temp.

GE Profile Side by Side is getting too cold on the fridge side.


I have a GE refrigerator with the same problem of my food freezing in the refrigerator. I spoke to an appliance part person and they sold me a temperature sensor for 20 bucks. They said it would be located in the control panel, but I took the control panel off and can't find the sensor. I'm now looking on yahoo answers to find out where the sensor is located.

GE side by side refrigerator defrost problem


CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.
