Question about GE Refrigerators
Recently the freezer was not keeping food frozen and not making ice. I unloadewd the freezer and fridge and unplugged it thawing evrything out and there was water from something thawing out all over the floor. i plugged it back in and it seemed to work ok for about three days and a frost was building up on the back of the freezer wall and it started all over again. I've also had problems with ice building up rapidly in the top of the chute on the ice dispenser plugging everything up and pretty much not being able to use the dispenser. Obviously somethings wrong and I'm not sure if it's related to the defrost cycle or heaters. Please help, the "the old girl" is getting up tight.
You have a defrost problem...and a dispenser chute or door problem... first check the door for air leaks . check that the chute door is closing tight and allways... also check around the door seal..
Now your defrost problem you have three parts defrost timer, heater and defrost thermostat .(bi-metal) the most likely problem is you bi-metal it is cliped on the evaporator about the size of a quarter with two wires mostly brown and orange... with the power off...and with the bimetal cool check it for check continuity... also check the heater for continuity .. next check your defrost timer it can be with the controls or in at the bottom under the cover,, or in the back ..there is a knob to advance the timer .. turn it untill it clicks and you have stated the defrost cycle. it should take around 20 minutes then the compressor will state again... hope this helps let me know
