Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Back of freezer wall gets fuzzy ice build up. Freezer stays cold but refrigerator side gets warmer and warmer. Need to thaw once a week. Need to know if it is ADC board, thermostat, or defrost heater assembly.
Thank you very much.
It's usually the defrost heater on this model. Pull rear panel of freezer and remove the heater, (2 screws). It's at bottom of coils. Take to your parts place and they should be able to ohm out for you to see if it's ok. If it's all blackened, probably heater.
A check you can make is to pull refrigerator out to access back. UNPLUG UNIT!
Remove panel over control board on back of fridge. On the blue connector in bottom of board note the defrost terminal as specified on board. Unplug connector and put a jump wire from this terminal on the CONNECTOR, to the terminal that has the wire going to it with no wire next to it. Plug in refrigerator. If defrost heater is good, it should start glowing red within a few minutes. If it doesn't replace it.
