Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
GE model tfx20d, with no cooling at all. I have tested t-stat and defrost timer. When it goes into defrost the heaters do not work and when it goes to cool it does not cool. It sounds and feels like the compressor is running. Lights work as well as light switches. If thermistor fails do these symptoms occur or is it low on freon?
Hi, If the defrost heater doesn't come on, check continuity on the bi-metal swtch located on the top of the evaporator coil. The bi-metal needs to be cold when testing it. If the switch is cold and shows an open circuit, it will need replaced. The bi-metal switch is a thermostat that turns the defrost heaters off when the desired tempurature is reached,.
Please let me know if this has helped you at all or if I can assist you further.
