    This is very helpful. Does GE (or an outside vendor) publish an illustrated service manual for this refrigerator?

Extremly rare for a motherboard to cause a defrost problem ! Most of the time , it is only the a bad heater . However , to check the system ,
pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This 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 and when to cycle off .

    Ge refrig manuals are printed for technicians and tech school attendees . I know of no outside manuals available . You do have a tech sheet located somewhere on the refrig , but mainly electrical diagrams .

My GE model GSH25KGMB BB side by side refrigerator is not cooling on fresh food side. Freezer and ice maker side working fine. How should I troubleshoot this?


On your model I would go straight to the defrost heater and defrost thermostat and check them first after defrosting the evaporator first with a hair drier. Both parts need to be replaced=> WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly 25953576-emtx2i4tcmlh0qfjbwwrn2z1-2-0.jpg and the=> WR50X10068 Defrost Thermostat APPLIANCE 911

Defroster not working


The WR51X322 Defrost Heater Assembly
4525c2b9-fd69-43ea-be79-2bc77bc87639.jpg

could be burned out in your model. Can you look inside the fresh food section and find the model number for me. The answer to the problem on your model depends on having the correct model number so I don't miss other parts that may cause a defrost failure. I know you said Monogram Side by Side but that does not tell me for sure what the Model Number on your refrigerator is. If your model is like the models in the GE Monogram Refrigerator Service Manual the I can have an idea of those parts. Those models have the defrost controls as part of their motherboard and that board does not fail at least in the defrost part of the board. defrost very often. You may need to also test or replace the WR50X10088 Defrost Thermostat I will be here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

Where is the defrost timer located on ge side bty side model gss25jfmdww


Hi, This model has a mother board instead of a defrost timer. If you are having a defrost issue, the first part you want to test is the defrost heaters. If you need instruction on testing the defrost cycle, please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

GE side by side refrigerator defrost problem


CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.
