As you know your unit is not going through defrost cycle. you need to replace either the control board, defrost heater and or defrost thermostat. ge is known for their defrost heaters going out.

Fridge warm. Freezer frosting over. I've


Hi


Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer ( evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.

There can be many factors for the no cooling factor: the condenser coils could be blocked with dust, the condenser fan could be bad or stuck, the freezer fan could be stuck or bed, the freezer coils could be blocked with frost because the self-defrost system is not working or the compressor is not running because of a bad relay etc.

Fridge not cold but freezer is


You most likely have a defrost problem. Put the unit into defrost. Unit uses an Adaptive Defrost Control

to put this adaptive defrost style of fridge into defrost, short with a small screwdriver between L1 and test on the adaptive defrost board, wait 3 seconds and you should hear a "click" noise from the relay and the fridge will shut off and go through a defrost cycle.

Our model is freezer on bottom...model 596.P66032 and the freezer is frosting up and our top regridgerator is not cold


Hi, these are the possible cause of the problem, you have to check one after the other to proffer the solution.

  • Vents between fridge and freezer sections are clogged with ice. Warranty guy told me to unplug 24 hours, replug and everything should work out.
  • Fautly thermostat.
  • Clogged/dirty evaporator coils (underneath in newer models, on back in older models).
  • Bad "Adaptive Defrost Control Board", Google it, it's an easy fix, about $35 on ebay, just make sure you

Freezer works great, fridge not cold. about 60 degrees in fridge. had repair man look at the fridge, said the mother board, was bad. panel inside freezer iced uped. fridge seem to get better for about 2...


And you are posting because,.......????? You are looking for a second opinion? Don't like the repair estimate?
1. Your freezer is not working great. If it is frosting up, frozen packages will soon beging to soften also.
2. All of the cooling takes place in the freezer compartment. A fan blows air over the coils in the freezer, and directs some of it into the fresh foods side to cool it. When the coils become blocked with frost, the air can no longer flow into the fresh foods compartment. Result is warming of FF area. You may also see freezing in the bottom FF bin, water dispenser not working, FRZ section warm, etc.
3. Manually defrosting the coils will temporarilly solve your problem, but it will reappear in a few days to a week or so. (depending on door openings, ambient temp, etc)
4. The motherboard controls the defrost interval and (although not the most common) certainly can be a cause of defrost failure. If a qualified servicer diagnosed it as such, it most likely is just that.

Coils frosting up


Every 8 to 12 hours unless you are on an adaptive defrost system. Then it is based on compressor run time.

Your system is on adaptive defrost control.
This means your defrost is based on door openings not time.

Coil is Freezing Up


MWKT, did the service tech replace the adaptive defrost board? By your post it sounds like a defrost problem. Check out the pic, this is the adaptive defrost board. I find that the heater and bi-metal usually don't fail on these models and the board is the culprit. Catriver..post back
