Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
GE profile, PSW23PSTASS, S/N VL416529, mother board P/N WR55X10156.
The ice maker bin fills with ice, but later melts in the bin, drips down into the freezer and forms large icicles. Ice cream seems to be melting and re-freezing. Also, there is frost on the outside of some other items. The built-in thermometer continues to read 0 to 2 degrees as always. I turned off the ice maker 2 weeks ago, the icicles are gone but other symptoms remain.
Solutions to similar posts included water solinoid valve (probably not as ice maker off and problem persists), bad mother board, defroster heater stuck in on position. If auto defrost please explain specific parts to be replaced.
Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

Mines doin the same thing this is a chronic problem with these units. I think it has something to do with the fan on top of the coils that brings the cold air up to the ice maker section. Seems to run a little slow or not often enuogh.Could be the fan motor, but more likely the board which powers the fan and is 230$$.Pisses me off Ken
