Hi, my GE refrigerator has ice developing on the rear wall of the freezer, and things in my crisper drawer are freezing solid,please help!!!!


Unplug refrig. Empty all food from freezer side and remove shelves from freezer. Remove back metal cover from inside freezer. Melt frost with a hair blower. Examine defrost heater at very bottom of the coils you defrosted. If heater coil inside glass tube is broken, replace defrost heater. (note: replacement may look different, but insturctions included with replacement address that) If heater is not broken, replace the small white pencil shapped sensor at the top of the cooling coils.

My GE refrigerator is not maintaing cold temp in either frig or freezer


Probabilities:
1. Main board, most likely
2. And/or evap. fan motor less likely.
3. Defrost heater, less likely
4. Evaporator thermister, unlikely, but possible
Try defrosting it for 24 hours (by unplugging) and see if it helps.

4 year old fridge just stopped cooling.


Because it is still running I believe the defrost heater may have burned out. The part number for the heater is WR51X10055 You will need to unplug and remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer to confirm. It will be easy to spot if burned out because it has a glass tube around the element. If you replace the defrost heater I recommend you also replace the defrost thermostat. If the evaporator is frozen over you may need to defrost with a hair dryer to be able to see anything . Sea Breeze

I have a GE side by side refrigerator that keeps blowing the defrost heater element. MODEL # TFT22JWDA WW SERIAL # TZ264141 I bought it from a GE dealer about 5-6 years ago. It ran fine for 3 years,...


In my GE side-by-side there is a defrost temp sensor located near the top of the evaporator coil. I think the control board uses that temp sensor to know when it should be done defrosting.

On the schematic of my fridge (link below), the defrost thermistor is part number 240 in the diagram (not part number 241, which is a different temp sensor located adjacent to the one you want)

I don't know why the defrost element would fail immediately other than incorrect supply voltage or just a bad defrost element.

Replaced defrost heater


If this is an old mechanically controled defrost timer style refrigerator, the defrost control may still be in the defrost mode. It should advance to run within an hour. If it does not, your defrost control timer may be bad. If you posted your model number, I could advise you on where the defrost control is located, what the part numer is, and how to manually advance it to the run position.

Freezer will not defrost on its own GSL25JFPE


Most likely, the defrost system has failed. There are three components: a defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
I would have suggest replace your defrost heater.

GE Side By side doesn't cool and freexer frosts up


Most common problem on GE's is the defrost heater(s) has gone bad. They are a glass tube and when they go bad the tube will have a burnt or black color to it. A good heater will be clear. I bet that is your problem. Seems to be the problem about 90% of the time on GE not defrosting.
