Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Two things can be wrong. One is the defrost timer is bad. (and a klixon switch that goes with it also may be bad). or the Defrost heator elements are not working. which means- maybe a circuit board or relay or just a wire has come loose. Remove all the food from the freezer, remove the racks, take out the back of the freezer. You may scratch up some metal but it's ok. get some bath towles, Get out a hair drier and start to manual defrost the evap coil. Work fast you will need to get it all back together quickly. Once you have the coil clear, look at all the wiring - looking for what looks like a lead pipe the size of a pencil. Check that for good wire conections at both ends, Also look for a round switch with two wires,(klixon) it should be cliped on one end of the evap coil- make sure it is in place. Check the drain be sure it is clear. put it all back together and run it a for a day or so and recheck for frost build up.
