I installed a new WR9X502 defrost part in my 8 yr old GE Monogram. The technician said they go out at this age, and suggested I could install it myself (which I did - very easy). However, he did not tell me there is a small adjustment hole that can be rotated clockwise by a screw driver.
Question: How do I know how much to rotate that adjustment?

could be burned out in your model. Can you look inside the fresh food section and find the model number for me. The answer to the problem on your model depends on having the correct model number so I don't miss other parts that may cause a defrost failure. I know you said Monogram Side by Side but that does not tell me for sure what the Model Number on your refrigerator is. If your model is like the models in the GE Monogram Refrigerator Service Manual the I can have an idea of those parts. Those models have the defrost controls as part of their motherboard and that board does not fail at least in the defrost part of the board. defrost very often. You may need to also test or replace the WR50X10088 Defrost Thermostat I will be here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze
Compressor is building up high head pressure. I'd be looking for another fridge since this is unrepairable in the long run
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running It moves air to the ref from the freezer Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge. Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean. There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card. Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear Clean condenser coils underneath Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder) .I'm including my article on Refrigerator Repair for your help and convenience.; Please click or copy and paste into browser for Article http://www.fixya.com/support/r5816737-fix_refrigerator_psychologically Thanks for using fixya Leo Ponder imufo2 Please VOTE FOR ME IF THIS WAS HELPFUL
