Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator
This is an older fridge, we bought it used and have had it for 20+ years with good service. However, for several days now it has not kept contents cold enough--milk clabbers within a few days, in the freezer ice cream is soft. We've cleaned the coils, of course, with little effect if any, and turned the thermostat further toward cold with no change. Suggestions?
How to check
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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.
