SOURCE: Defrost Heater or Main Control Board, Which one is at fault?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To answer your question I know of no reason the electronic type of board would cause the heater to go out unless the defrost thermostat (or sensor) and board stuck in the defrost possession and did not stop the heater. Any time you replace the board and have had a defrost problem a check of the heater will either confirm or eliminate it but the defrost sensor should be replaced if the board is being blamed for non defrost. I cant rule out 100% that a bad board will not cause a heater problem but the high 99% range is most likely. If you have a volt ohm meter and can find the heater circuit on your board and the freezer has been running down to correct temp you can check the defrost circuit by ohming it out. Lower resistance of 10 to 60 ohms is common. Anything higher will require ohming the heater out directly and the defrost thermostat will be open if the temperature is above the stats range.

Common to all self defrosting refrigerators / freezers is the need to move air around to pickup heat inside the compartment. Common to all frost free refrigeration to maintain this feature are 3 items:
1 and initiator (defrost timer or circuit board),
2 A heat source for defrost (Usually an electric heat element but can be other types of heat sources)
3 A safety limit to stop the heat source, leaving it warm enough to defrost and keep the heat contained where it will not affect the compartment advisedly. In a standard type defrost (non - electronic) it is called a thermostat. In an electronic board defrost it is called a sensor.

The defrost timer / or board will never be in the Freezer. Other than that it could be in the refrigerator section behind a plastic cover or metal cover on the back outside. It could also be under Neath the front corners or center of the front kick plate.

A timer you can turn the cam clock wise till it clicks. A board will depend on the manufacturer as to how to send into defrost for a test. A sensor on the defrost type board may be required to by-pass into defrost or test mode.

The freezer section has the only cooling coil. It sounds like it is blocked with frost and thus won’t 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..

Good Afternoon mustang2060, thank you for allowing me to assist you! Based on the symptoms you are describing, it appears you are possibly correct. Sounds like the issue lies with the control board, however I recommend a proper diagnosis to pinpoint the exact problem to be certain and to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. I will be more than happy to provide you the part number of the control board of your refrigerator, GLHS36EJSB. However, may I please have the last digit of the model number (in most cases it is a number) to provide you the correct information. The serial tag is typically located in the left or right side of the wall. Thank you!

Replace motherboard for gsh25vgrbcc

Your refrigerator uses the common GE WR55X10942 control board. On most models you can just swap out the control boards. Some models require a few additional steps, you will have to check your serial number to see if that applies to your model (see instruction sheet included with the control board).

First unplug the refrigerator.

On the back of the refrigerator, there is a panel. Remove the screws and the panel cover.

Unplug wires from the old control board (note where the wires go), and plug them into the new control board.

Plug refrigerator back in and test out.

Your model needs attention soon to prevent damage to the control board. Something simple as a fan going bad will cause a chain reaction on your model. Let me know if you would like my assistance or your you would like to call in a technician. I can help you repair from here or my site. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Model #: GSS25JFMC WW. during the pass two days my refrigerator has stopped cooling.

Your refrigerator has a control board on the back. This is likely the problem. Another possible problem is the start relay and capacitor on the compressor. To examine the board unplug refrigerator and remove cover over the board. Remove so you can examine both sides for burn marks or signs of heat on the black relays. Visit my site and enter the model or part number into the search feature You will also see a picture of this board on my web page.
Board part number WR55X10656 main control board. Thanks, Sea Breeze
