Make sure the fan near the compressor is running and that the coils next to it are warm. If that's not the poblem
Then Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM). If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

My refrigerator is beeping and has high temperature both (freezer 30F and refrig. 58F). I try to set to default, but it didn't change.


your coils down at the bottom may be dirty & full of dust vacum it out. if the there is ice forming in the freezer it needs to be defrosted.

GE S/S GSS25JETA BB freezing up on back wall of freezer & all cooling stops. It happened 2 months ago, then somehow starting working again after I scraped ice off back wall. Froze up again this week....


This is a little work , but it will save you a service call , parts up-pricing , and labor .
Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board ( you already know , since you changed it ) . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , and when to cycle off .

Have kenmore refig model 59671103101 refrig temperature to low. light work, fans run freezer works good. Cleaned vents & coils ?


if the freezer is fine, check for air flow to fridge. if you get none, see if there is any frost on the back wall of the freezer. if there is some frost, the coils are iced up and need thawing. if there is no frost, there may be an obstruction in the vent. also may be thermostat in fridge- it opens and closes the vent from the freezer.

If you need freon you can't do it yourself

Could be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

No air coming into refrig to cool


We pulled the back panel in the freezer and found the coils frozen. We defrosted the coils and the fridge started working. We will be getting a new timer. Thanks
