Question about GE PSW23PSSSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
The fresh food evaporator keeps frosting over. I changed the Evap. fan cover assembly, the control board and the fresh food thermister and the problem happened again 3 weeks later. Now what do I need to change?

SOURCE: 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.

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

I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.
