Question about GE Profile CustomStyle PSC23MGSWW 36" 22.7 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ CustomStyle Configur...
We have a 2002 GE Artic Profile Refrigerator, side-by-side. About
2 wks ago the reffrigerator side heated to about 100 F and food
spoiled. The GE tech changed the main computer board. About
three days later, it heated again and food spoiled. The unit then
cooled down after I un plugged and replugged the unit. he GE tech
changed the light switch. A few days later the problem
recurred. The temp goes up then cools down. This has
happened twice since the board and swtich were changed. Yesterday
a service tech again looked at the unit, while temp was 37 F,and is
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.
