Question about Refrigerators
I know this is going to sound crazy, but a friend of mine swears he has the simple, inexpensive "fix" for this situation, and he claims it has worked on more than one refrigerator. He says that if you take a piece of copper wire (slightly thick), and wrap it around and connect both evaporator coils, it will help this situation.
Here's a suggestion for what it could be from homerepairforum.com:
Thanks Dan O. I spoke with a repair man and he suggested checking for heavy frost buildup in the back of the freezer compartment the next time this problem occurs. He said that the door ice dispenser outlet flap should also be checked as a source of warm moist air getting into the freezer compartment. Do you have any other suggestions that I should try to help determine the cause when the warming problem occurs again? FYI, I fortunately have an extra Fridge to store all the perishables while waiting for the problem to recur.
This web answer points to a possible bad defrost termination thermostat for GE units:
This might dispel my friend's solution, since it could create other problems.
Here is a site with the diagrams, parts lists, and manuals for this model:
Anyway, hope this helps you figure it out, and good luck.
