Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have tried to unplug the refrigerator for a day or two for three different times but problem seems to come back. The refrigerator and freezer starts running and cooling fine but eventually after a while the back part of the freezer starts building up ice and then stops cooling in the refrigerator. Help please
Pull the refrig out , unplug , and on the back , remove the 8 " X 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . On this board , you will see a blue plug ,with 3 larger wires going to it , which you need to unplug .
You will need a short piece of insulated wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 inch .
Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 wire2 space wire3 . With the piece of wire , insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other end into wire3 .
Plug the refrig back in . Looking in the freezer section , behind the crisper , after about 1 min , you should see a " red " glow .
If no red glow , this means your defrost heater AND bimetal need to be replaced . Unplug the refrig , remove jumper wire , and plug the blue receptical , back onto the board . Reinstall the panel .
To replace these , remove the food in the freezer , and remove the inside freezer panel ( 4 screws hold this panel on ) , and the heater is below the coils ( 2 screws ) , and the bimetal is clipped on the top of the coils , a 1 " cylinder , with a pink and blue wire going to it .
Part number for the heater WR

It sounds to me like you are having a problem with your defrost. Most of the time it turns out to be a bad defrost timer. Hope this helps
