Question about GE Refrigerators

Call the service repairman might need freon added
Posted on Apr 08, 2015
Is the compressor running? Is it any good? Is the thermostat control working and cycling the compressor on? Is the self defrost mechanism stuck in defrost cycle (shuts down compressor), etc?
Is the motor getting power?
U need to check all of these areas.

SOURCE: GE SIDE X SIDE Dispenser problem
Sound like maybe a dispenser board short... you could try taking of the top hidge cap on the freezer side unplug the power to the board there for 30 minustes or so plug back in and see if it can reset to default and try that before u have to change board

First off, when the fans are both running, the compressor should also be running. Sometimes, because they run quietly, it is difficult to tell if they are running. Touch the compressor to feel for heat and / or vibration to confirm running. (if the compressor gets too hot, the overload will stop it until the compressor cools down. That could happen with too low or too high voltage, even with the cooling fan running) You did not say how long you let the unit defrost. To properly defrost it, you should empty out the freezer side, remove the shelves, and take the metal cover off the back inside wall of the freezer. Then, use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. If the coils were blocked with frost, you probably have a burnt out defrost heater (located at the bottom of the cooling coils) when replacing the defrost heater, use part number WR51X10101 and follow directions, as it may have a different configuration than the original heater. A frost blocked evaporator (coils inside the freezer) will stop normal air circulation inside the refrigerator. Cold air will then be able to flow backward, into the bottom of the refrigerator side through the normal return air duct located at the bottom of the refrig / freezer divider. This cold air can freeze the water line or water reservoir located there. There for, solving your defrost issue most likely will also solve your water line freeze issue.

At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . GE also has a dispensor heater , to help keep this from happening again , if , the water line is frozen . Pt # WR49X10173 .
BB ..... refrigerators are not your AoE .
