You can jumper the board where the line cord enters the board,it will say comp/defrost/neutral in the center,jumper between the center terminal and the outer one that says defrost,if it still doesnt defrost you need to disconnect the defrost heater and check for continuity,then do the same with the defrost thermostat,but the thermostat needs to be below freezing to test it or it will show open(bad) the heater will show some resistance to be good

Problem is defrost thermostat, defrost heating element or defrost timer and or low gas in the system. Remove the back panel in the freezer and look to see if the evaporator coils are frozen solid with ice. If so the problem is no defrost cycle. If no ice then the unit is low on gas and it has a leak. If the refrigerator is old... recycle it and go buy a new refrigerator from Whirlpool.

Why is my ge refriderator "frost-free" freezer frosting up?


most likely the defrost heater behind the panel thats frosted up is burned out so it cant defrost the unit,g.e. is notorious for this,remove this panel inside the freezer and remove 2 screws at the bottom of the evaporator coil holding the heater to the evaporator and unplug it the new part number is g.e.

I have a GE Model #TBX18NI- 18.2cuft top freezer/refrigerator, and the freezer part is working great, but the refrigerator part seems to be getting warmer and warmer. I've tried adjusting the temp...


The frig has a defrost timer which activates an electric element which cyclially defrosts the evaporator in the freezer.If either the heating element or the defrost thermostat are faulty the freezer evaporator will freeze solid not allowing cold air circulation to the rest of the frig.
At a suiteable time empty fridge contents into insulated containers and turn fridge off at powerpoint and allow to fully defrost leaving doors open.The evaporator coil in frostfree is normally located behind the rear panel of the freezer.If you do not have defrost heater it will take 3-4 hrs for complete defrost.
After defrost turn fridge back on and make sure items to be returned to freezer are free from moisture and ice and keep freezer open for minimum of time as moisture will start building up onthe evapoator.
If the fridge works ok for a couple of days and the the original problem returns the problem is with defrost thermostat or defrost heater

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem


Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

OK first defrost the refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel covering the evaporator and lets look at the defrost element and defrost thermostat. If they are OK we may need to have a look at mother board mounted on back of fridg. Let me know when you are ready, Sea Breeze

I have a GE side by side refrigerator and I just replaced the defrost heater last week because it would cool and than freeze up and I would have to turn in off and defrost it myself. Now it cools and stays...


Icemaker solid:

This could be a problem with the icemaker not dumping the ice or with the water valve in back not shuting off completely.


Water in the floor:

This may be related to the icemaker but first check the drain under the evaporator coils.

Maybe but there is also a thermister in the defrost system that might be bad. The thermister is a small, white, barrell shape and is as big around as a pencil, It has 2 wires going in it and is attached to the top of the coils in the freezer.
