I have a GE SIDE BY SIDE GSS22IFRF BB. The freezer back wall is frosting up causing the fridge side to get warm. Does this model have a defrost timer? Should I start with replacing this?

SOURCE: Frost build up in freezer and warm temp in a GE Profile TFX22PRXB

Modern refrigerators are designed to self defrost and it is essential to the airflow to have an evaporator coil that is clear for air movement. If the rear interior panel of the freezer has frost appearing, it is most likely a defrost problem and must be corrected before temperatures can be restored to normal. Your refrigerator most likely has a defrost timer located on bottom behind grate, or inside behind control panel. Could you find the correct model number so I can help you better. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look at following areas for the model number

  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top

SOURCE: Frost free failure on a GE fridge. Removed access panel to freezer section to find evaporator coils crusted in frost. Cannot locate defrost timer and cannot locate any repair manuals online. I'm not w

The defrost timer is electronic and built in to the main control board on the rear of the box.
The defrost heater and defrost thermostat are the most likely culprits on this brand.
They are in the freezer above and below the coil.
They usually come as a set.

SOURCE: Where is the defrost timer located on GE

This model does not have a defrost timer. It has a motherboard. You must jump out the plug to the main board to test the defrost circuit. In order to do this take the cover off of the main board, find the three wire connector on the base of the main board, connecter is normally blue in color. On the board itself it will identify termials as line, defrost, and compressor. To test you must create a jumper wire.Install the jumper in the plug terminals identified as line and defrost.This will turn the defrost heater on. If the heater does not come on, look for a defective heater or a defrost thermostat(mounted on the top of the evaporator). If the heater does come on replace the thermister(located on top of evap, white in color and has two white wires part#WR55x10025)

Maytag fridge model# MSD2561HES


Look inside the freezer for frost buildup on the rear wall. Let me know if there is frost building because that would indicate a defrost problem causing the warm up. Also check your model number because you are the only one on the internet with a model MSD2561HES for the USA Once you have the correct number and answer back about the frost buildup I will tell you each step to take solving this problem which I think is a defrost problem at this point, Thanks Sea Breeze I think your model has the adaptive defrost control board that may be at fault=> 4388932 Defrost Control Board

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Fghs2665kf2 side by side freezer works fine fridge side warming up


Hello,
The leading cause of the refrirgerator not working while the freezer is is good,is a defrost problem,do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall inside of the freezer?? If yes ya see frost build up of frost in the freezer it will be a problem with the automatic defrost system. This tip i wrote covers what to check when it isn't defrosting by itself.

GE side-by-side refrigerator tfx26ppdaww freezer cold, frost on back wall, fridge side warm, is it the damper? or something to do with the frost?


The Thermostat Defrost its not working anymore, it doesn't defrost anymore and it acumulate ice on the gap that flows the is in between the fridge and the freezer. so what you got to do is defrost your refrigerator and remove the back wall, and locate the defrost, cut it and take it to an appliance part store, and get a new one and just put it back and it should work like new!! :)

Fridge and Freezer Not getting Cold


Your defrost system is at fault.
With this brand it is most likely the defrost thermostat and defrost heater located behind the back freezer panel.
Remove the shelves and bin,then remove the freezer panel. Defrost the ice manually.
Replace the thermostat and heater assembly.

Fridge running but not cooling


It sounds like you are having a problem with your defrost cycle. If your unit either does not go into defrost, or you have a defective defrost componet, it will cause your evap. to freeze. Hope this helps

Frost on back wall of freezer, side by side, wont freeze


It's most likely a defrost issue. One or more of your defrost components have failed. Defrost components are defrost thermostat, defrost heater, and defrost timer or board depending on model
