Question about GE Refrigerators
Side by side profil 94 coools not cold lower three coils freeze up. changed uppper and lower heaters still no go- everything else cycles Thermostatbad???
cleaned coils and underside
Remove the freezer panel and
make sure your fan blower is working if not replace it.
locate the defrost heating element and check it whit a multimeter
on the ohms position if no continuity replace it if is good find the defrost thermostat
is a round sensor whit two wires sticking out it you be open at room temperature but if is frozen shut
be close NOTE : a easy way to test it is buying a can of duster gas on your local office supply store
flip it up side down and flow the liquid directly in to the defrost thermostat that will freeze in a couple seconds on till make a click sound and you be able to test continuity whit your tester.
if no continuity after it click replace it.
if those components are good
take your thermostat case out and look for the defrost Timer. and replace it
if is a mechanical one
it will have a round knob on the side and four wires sticking out have like a box or a electronic board
NOTE: some times you can find a page nest to the thermostat or at the lower kick cover or even behind
the back panel. comes whit electrical diagram and component locations.
if you have any further questions. just add on your question i bee checking it later.

By the sound of it you need to check the thermostat..unfortunately they are quite hard to test and I would suggest to test one before buying,either by getting an exact same model to test..I would suggest ebay for the parts as they might cost nothing compared to normal shops..Hope this help and save you money..
