GE Profile SxS Refrigerator wont defrost after new heater installed

Help?

Hi - Now i seek your help with my refrigerator problem - GE profile model TFH22PRSMBB Help? Found coils frozen up -- Found one heater burned out -- replaced heater Unit (both heaters and little thermo) - restarted fridge -- freezer cooled down to -4 F - fridge to +38 (great) Timer went into defrost mode -- sat there for the alloted 35 minutes and unit restarted - BUT -- the unit DID NOT defrost while in defrost time mode. Felt heaters several times during "shut down" mode --- they never heated up. Left go for another 16 hr cycle --- SAME results// Question ?? Why arent my heaters coming on and defrosting the coils? Could the timer be bad? and still go through its cycles? I thought i would ask before buying and installing new defrost control timer. Can you help? Thanks in advance for help?

If one coil was burnt out and you replaced the heaters and defrost terminator switch I would recheck the continuity through the defrost heaters. You can do this with an Ohm meter with the refrigerator unplugged. If you had an open coil in one of the heaters you did not have to replace the thermo disk. If you have a complete circuit through the heaters try using the old thermo disk. If you have a meter you can check the voltage from the heater connection on one side to the inlet side of the thermo disk with the refrigerator running in the defrost mode. You should read 115-125 Volts on the meter. This reading tells you that the defrost timer is supplying power to the heater circuit.

Refrigerator not cold


Your problem could be a defrost component issue (e.g.: defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or defrost timer). Contact an appliance service company.

GE Profile PSC25 won't cool past 45 degrees


With that model that is a sign that defrost is not happening on time or the beginning of the problem. Temperatures in fresh food compartment above 38 are not safe. Look into the back of the freezer compartment and let me know if you see a frost line buildup. If yes it would be a good idea to manually defrost the freezer so you can remove the rear panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. It's also important that with this model that the problem be resolved quickly. I can help you if you want. The defrost heater will be easy to see if burned out because it has a glass tube around the heating element. If you replace the defrost heater you should also change the defrost thermostat. Fan motors going bad on that refrigerator seem to always damage the control board and if the board is replaced the the fan motor should also. Let me know if you want me to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer runs at 20 below and refrigerator runs at 60 ge profile


Most likely the defrost heater is burned out below the evaporator coil. It will be easy to spot because on the profile the defrost heater has a glass tube covering the element inside. You will need to defrost first before you will be able to see anything. If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Thanks, Sea breeze

GE Profile SxS Refrigerator wont defrost after new heaters installed


The answer to your last question would be yes. You can test for voltage at the harness where you plugged in the new assembly. With the refrigerator defrost timer in the defrost mode do your voltage test. The thermo stat for the defrost does not close until the temperature drops to about 16°F. If you have and Ohm meter you can test for continuity through the heater assembly by testing heater end to end and bypassing the thermo disk. If you have voltage at the first point test where you connected the harness your timer is O.K.. If there is no voltage with timer in the defrost position it could be bad.
