Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE side by side refrigerator (not sure of the model…not in front of it right now) that is not working properly. The freezer side keeps frosting up along the back wall and the fridge side is not very cold. I have the temperature settings on 5 for the freezer and 6 for the fridge. When I put them both at a 9 (the coldest setting) the freezer side frosted up very fast and the fridge side did not cool down any. I unplugged the unit and let it defrost and wiped it down, but when I turned it back on there was no change. Also the ice machine is not making any ice. I have looked through the owner’s manual and it is not helpful at all. I am looking for any advice in hopes that I can resolve this issue without having someone come out, as I do not think there is anything major wrong with it.
It sounds like you have a defrost system problem. most commonly its your defrost heater on most GE ref. It can be located by removing the back panel of the freezer. If you remove the heater it can be tested for continuity at any parts distributor. I would also look for the quarter sized thermostat mounted at the top of the coils to see if it looks "popped" at the top. If it is then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps MJ
