Question about GE GSS22JF Side by Side Refrigerator
I’ve already deathward my GE side-by-side refrigerator twice and I’ve also cleaned the filter, yet after a week or so after it has been re-plugged it will stop cooling. This has only been happening within the past month. I’ve lost food b/c of this problem. I took the icemaker out to view the fan it is working as far as I can see. It seems no cold air is getting to the refrigerator side. When I notice that the refrigerator is not getting cool, I notice that freezer it is frosting up on the back wall. What can I do to fix this or is this fix able? Help!!
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 WR51X10101 . 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 due to temp setting .

The most likely cause for this would be a defrost heater. if you know how to use an ohm meter, you can remove the back wall of the freezer and check the defrost heater(s) for continuity. the defrost heater failing is the most commone cause for this problem, but if the heater is good then it could also be the defrost termination thermostat or the timer control board.
