My first guess would be a bad defrost timer. Second would be a defrost heater element.

Hi MDstuff,

 

Stopped cooling.  Check the backl of the freezer to see if the Coils are Frosted completely.  The buzzing sound could be the frost touching the  Fan in the back of the freezer behind the cover. Sounds like your Defrost heater has gone south. 

1. unplug the Freezer, power down.. for safety

2. Clean all the food out of your Freezer,

3. Remove the shelves and Ice maker tray stuff.

4. REmove the panel in the back of your freezer

5. Is the Coil(Evaporator, Radiator)you see  frosted up? 

6. At the bottom of this coil. you should see a metal assembly that stretches accros the bottom of the coil with a wire connection on both ends. This is the Defrost heater.

Remove the heater and look to see if the heaterspring inside the glass tube is broken.  If so, get a new one from Ebay, or www.repairclinic.com.

 

In the mean time while your waiting on a part, Use a hair dryer to get rid of all the frost and put your freezer back topgether.  You sahoul get 2 or 3 weeks of service on your Freezer, before it happens again.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator, model GSL85JFPHBS. It sstopped working altogether last month. first the refrigerator stopped working, two day later the freezer part stopped working. I had someone...


I think you meant you have a GSL25JFPHBS (not 85).
It sounds like you have a defrost problem. If your refrig. was off for some time, like a day or more, or it was manually defrosted, it would work for about 2 weeks before the problem would re-occuer. This is caused by a build up of frost on the cooling coils, preventing air flow over them. Un-load the freezer and remove shelves and the back wall inside the freezer. Melt the frost with a hair blower, and replace the defrost heater (part # WR51X10055) and for good measure, replace the defrost thermistor (part # WR55X10025) located at the top of the cooling coils.

either low in freon or defrost timer stuck or unit needs cleaning, remove front louver panel on bottom (either 2 screws or snap fit) look for timer then use small straight screwdriver to turn slowly till clicks then wait to see if working properly, if not could be problem. if you see a lot of dust bunnies while doing then clean with vacuum and do same to back area also

With your new timer in hand look and find a slotted screw driver head that you can turn. That is to manually advance the timer. Now put the new one in and advance it to engage the compressor and fan. Might be in the middle of defrost mode. Your unit goes through 3 defrost modes in a 24 hour period. And each mode last for 20 minutes. Once you do this I could help further if that was the case. Okay ken
