defrost timer probably is at fault or the heater itself

GE Refrigerators • Answered on Jun 20, 2021

The water is caused by a blocked drain when the freezer units defrosts. It does this once every 24 hours. If you pull the fridge out, on the back just below the freezer that is a small black u-bend. That is blocked. Pull it off, soak it in hot water and bleach for 30 minutes. Then flush it through with cold water. Put a little bleach in it and carefully replace it. At the next defrost, the bleach will be diluted and it will clean the pipe down to the compressor pan. The water comes from the evaporator coils, which are behind the panel at the back of the freezer.

Usually it is at the bottom inside on the laft and catches the condensed water vapour deposoting it upon a saucer shaped item that is above the compressor. When it fills with droplets the heat from the compressor evaporates it away.

I had the same problem. The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. What had happened in my case is the plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard had become unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge, and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. I just reconnected it and that reset the display. Glad for it too, I thought I needed a new $130 motherboard! Hope this helped!

Only by fitting it or calling out a GE certified engineer. They can return items if the control panel is not the cause. It IS the most likely cause, but they aren't cheap. You could check all the connections to it.

The clicking noise like clock coming from refrigerator.--------- If your refrigerator unit is working and still you hear this noise then .First inspect from which section you are getting this noise.--------- The most common location for this noise is from start up capacitor beside the compressor. This capacitor gives power to compressor to get started.When this capacitor fails, it makes ticking noise.The compressor is located towards the back bottom.So hear the noise, is it coming from beside the compressor.IF yes, then capacitor needs to be replaced.Its not very hard to replace this capacitor and its also not a costly part.----------- But if you are not hearing the noise from that section, then other most possible location for this noise is from fan in freezer section.In the freezer section inner panel there is fan.When the ice gets collected on the evaporator coil.Sometimes when over ice gets collected, the fan blade hits the ice and you get some noise.So inspect, if you are getting noise from inner freezer section, and is the noise coming from fan hitting the ice.--------- Then in that case , there is nothing to replace, just defrost your refrigerator, by unplugging it from wall outlet for couple of hours, then reconnect.All ice will melt, and the noise will not come.-------------- But again, if the noise is not coming from that section also, then other possibility is noise coming from mother board.this board has to be replaced.-------- There are relays and IC on the board. When this components gets weak, they make this clicking noise, this noise is indication to replace the board.-------- Te board is a costly part to be replaced.Also the components on the board are mostly not replaceable.-------- Complete board needs to be replaced.---------- -------------- This are the most common places from where this ticking noise can come.And the mentioned parts should be inspected and replaced, as per the troubleshooting and checking done.---------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Won't warm water, despite the fact that high temp water switch is in on position (l). Water container is connected. Directions cautioned that heated water capacity would be obliterated if high temp water tank ran dry. This won't ever occur. Unit bought Sept 2004. House meld isn't blown. (Power plug working and green light on unit is "on") Checked to check whether temperature limiter was stumbled by setting hot change to off (O) for five minutes, and afterward set to on (l) for 30 minutes. Intensely hot pointer light on front of unit doesn't turn on showing warming cycle. For more info -
