    Model pds22sbrbrss not defrosting. This is the bottom mount GE refrigerator with the PCB in the back. The fridge does not go into defrost. The board has been changed twice with no result. If I defrost the evaperator manually the fridge is good for about 2 weeks then ices up again. I have checked the defrost termination thermostat with a meter and it is good. The defrost heater measures 32 ohms. What could be causing this 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.

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

GE side by side refrigerator not working properly. Fresh food side is warm. Freezer side is at 9 degrees. What could be the problem?


Check for ice buildup at back of freezer. If so then auto defrost mechanism is not working. Check for bad defrost timer, heater, and defrost thermostat.

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

I have a ge refridgerator gss25k side by side. thefridge/freezer are not cooling. the bottom of the fridge freezes and the top is warm.


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. A fan circulates air to cool the refrigerator.
The inside fan has stopped working or is blocked by ice.
Defrost the freezer. If the fridge starts to work properly then you have an auto defrost problem. If the fridge still does not work then there is a faulty fan.
A technician can help you there

Not cooling properly GE TFX20JR i tried the defrost timer and it is working, now what other possibly problems could there be? thanks!


Do you have ice /frost buildup on freezer wall?If so auto defrost is not working.3 possible causes ,turn the defrost timer manually to defrost position either measure amps @ 3.5 amps or listen in freezer section for crackling popping or sizzling.If you dont hear/measure this you have a bad heater or defrost tstat .Remove freezer wall look at top of coil for thermodisc 2 wires and 1 or 2 glass heaters (btm,mid coil).Tsat can be bypassed by connecting the 2 wires or checked for continuity closed at approx 20'.heaters may be visibly burnt or broken recommend changing both parts

Not cooling properly GE TFX20JR


Your refrigerator has a defrost thermostat inside the fresh food section behind the light cover and control panel. Need you to turn it clockwise slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it like that and after 30 minutes or less it does not restart you will need to replace the timer. The defrost timer is part number WR9X489
You should hear sounds from freezer with door open like sizzling or crackling. That would be the defrost working. If there is no defrost during this time. let me know so we can look into the defrost element and defrost thermostat as possible problems. Visit my site and enter the model or part number into search feature. That takes you to your model. Any questions or help from me, just let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ge refrigerator model TFH22JW problem


You most likely have an automatic defrost problem. When one of more of the defrost components fails, frost accumulates behind the freezer wall and restricts airflow to the fresh food side. You will still generate cold into the freezer section but will have virtually no cold to fresh food side. If it is a few years old it is most likely the defrost heater which is defective. Replace the defrost thermostat (bi-metal) as well.
