Evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is working? Any frost on the freezer back wall?

This is the fan inside the freezer section, it will circulate the cold air around in the freezer and blow the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section, it also sucks the warm air from the fresh food section back into the freezer to be re-cooled.

Hot condensor coils ( under the refrigerator ) been cleaned recently?

**GSS25LGMA**

That is part of a full model#.

Ge side by side ref.


no,its more than likely the defrost heater located just under the coil thats freezing up,check this heater for continuity,if its o.k. then test the defrost thermostat thats clipped onto the same coil near the top of the coil,note,the defrost thermostat needs to be below 15 degrees to check good as its a thermal switch,then if still problems then check the main board in the back of the unit behind a panel this is where the defrost circuit gets its power,but i will likely say its the heater thats open because i replace about 5 per week with the same issue as yours

After unplugging and defrosting my ge tfx20nw it


Good day,
The defrost system has failed. It is made up of a timer, defrost thermostat, and defrost heaters.
The timer is located behind the light guard in the fridge compartment.
The heaters and defrost thermostat are located in the freezer compartment, behind the back wall.
To test,
1. With the machine running, in the fridge compartment, pull off the thermostat knob, and then unclip the light guard.
The timer is behind the panel exposed, but has a hole to insert a small screw driver to advance the timer.
Turn the timer clockwise until the machine shuts off. Wait 45 plus minutes. If the machine turns itself back on the timer is good.
If not, remove the panel, and install a new timer.
2. If the timer is O.K. then the problems are in the panel on the rear of the freezer compartment.
Unplug the machine, and remove the rear panel. Allow it to defrost.
There are two quartz radiant heaters, one located on the bottom of the evaporator coil, and one half way up. There is also a defrost thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator. It is a round disk about an inch in diameter.
Purchase and replace all 3. You may need wire nuts to splice wires together so purchase them as well, when getting the other parts.
Go slow, the heaters are easily damaged or broken if handled roughly.

Where is the defrost timer located for my GE GS25jfmc fridge


Timer is usually located in rear of unit at bottom. Look for a plastic part with 3 or 4 wires sticking out. It has a one way screw driver slot for manually advancing. This part may be located in the cooler behind a plastic cover.

My GE refridge model GSS20DBMB WW freezer coils keep freezing up! I have replaced the door seals as an appliance center recommended. However, It did stop it from freezing up! we have to use a hair dryer...


Something has gone wrong with the defrost system. It could involve the defrost timer, the evaporator heater, or some of the wiring.

This problem would take some troubleshooting that most do-it-yourselfers would likely not be able to do.

GE Model # DSS25PFMD WW, lights and fan are working not cooling


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
