Looking for a troubleshooting guide for ge model gss22kgmc ww. Freezer coils ice up. Suspect there is a defrost timer, or some type of sensor that monitors this function. I need a little jump start to find the information to troubleshoot it. A functional description of this model, a parts diagram and/or a schematic would be nice. I am a CNC machinery technician, who provides free support daily to major manufacturers. Would like a little return courtesy. Have a good day.

The defrost circuit has failed in your fridge. Typical failure is with the defrost heating element. To troubleshoot, you need to remove the remove the contents of your freezer section and remove the freezer back panel to access the evaporator coil. You will need a hair dryer to melt the ice on coil. The heating element is attached to the coil. Use a meter to confirm that the element is bad. Hope this helps you.

GE Frig model TFX20JRBK ww with icing on freezer


I would suggest fixing it . You only have 2 parts in the defrost system . A timer , and the defrost heater which comes with the bimetal , pt . # WR51X10031 .Most probable , is the defrost heater . You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel , and defrost the coils with a hair dryer . After defrosting , 2 screws hold each ( 2 ) heater on , ant the defrost thermostat , just clips onto the top of the coils .

GE Model # DSS25PFMD WW, lights and fan are working not cooling


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 and eventually affect the freezer too.

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

Freezer side of refridgerator doesn't freeze foods properly and also makes only about 10 cubes a day. food side works fine, it's a Hotpoint model #HSS251FMB WW


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Freezer frosts up and stops cooling after approximately 2 weeks


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

GE TFX20JR BK WW side by side won't cool or freeze


First point: The entire fridge is cooled by the freezer section. A fan blows air across to the food section.
2) Every 8 hours or so, a timer shuts off the compressor cycle, and starts up a heater to defrost the freezer coils. If the heater(s) are burnt out, or if the safety thermostat (to prevent overheating) is open, then you will have no defrost. The coils will frost up and eventually prevent airflow to the food section. Milk goes sour.
3) In rare circumstances, the timer itself can stall. This cause the same symptoms as above, but this is not as common as the other 2 causes of No Defrost.
Sequence: Check heater continuity. Check safety thermostat continuity while cold. Check defrost timer operation.
Hope this helps. I am a journeyman with 39 years exp. Happy New Year.

GE refrigerator warm freezer cold


The freezer section has the only cooling coil. It sounds like it is blocked with frost and thus wont let the air circulate from freezer to refrigerator.

There is a defrost timer, (or board), a defrost heater, and a defrost safety thermostat. Any One of these or a combination of 2 can be your problem. If you have a energy efficient model that has electronic controls then you will have a board. The procedures for checking the circuit on a board vary by manufacturer of the board used and manufacturer of the appliance.

The defrost heater always has resistance and is attached to the freezer coil.
The defrost thermostat is also attached to the heater electrically, unless it is an electronic sensor type. Sensor types have a range of resistance that needs to be known to check and varies slightly with the temperature of the sensor.

If I haven't lost you here you maybe equipped with the life experiences that will allow you to do most of these checks. If its over your understanding I recommend you contact a reliable technician.

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Freezer defrosts too long.


I might first suspect the defrost bi-metal thermostat located in the freezer compartment behind the interior panel. It's clipped onto the coils and is usually a little round disk with a couple wires coming out of it. The reason I susupect it is that little device is what "opens" to kill power to the heater once the temps get hot enough to have finished melting the ice on the coils. If that is stuck "closed" or opens WAY out of it's heat range then the heat element will stay on way too long. Next is the actual defrost timer which can be a clock type timer or a circuit board. If you go to this site use GSS22JEM for the model number. Item 240 is the bi-metal, 241 is the thermistor sensor. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/GE/00113124i06.gif Item 801 is the control board. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/GE/00113123i02.gif
