Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
My GE refrigerator coils in the freezer freeze up and build up so much ice that the freezer does not get cold enough. This happened about a week ago before I left for scout camp. I removed the rear freezer panel and defrosted the coils manually and it seemed to work but when I returned home they were froze over again. I have the panel off & the heater coil out of the fridge. I have 120 volts to the same wire that feeds the defrost thermostat. How can I tell it the problem is the heater, the defrost thermostat, the defrost control, or the temperature control? I am adept with the use of a VOM. Help!
It's almost always the defrost heater. If you have volts to the defrost thermostat the defrost control is working. Set your meter to check ohms and remove the wiring from the heater. If anything changes when you touch the meter leads to the heater terminals then the heater is probably good, but my guess is nothing will change, which means you've got a bad heater.
