I am very impressed with the information on your website with drawings of my refrigerator and parts needed to fix it. To replace the heater I turned the power to the refrigerator off, removed the panel which covers the cooling coils and heater. To replace the heater I removed two screws which hold the bracket assembly and unplugged the AC power leads to the heater. The old heater had totally failed. The refrigerator is now working normally again. Thanks so much for your great support. I ordered the heater on a Thursday afternoon and received the new heater and bracket assembly the next day. The price was also very reasonable.

Unplug the unit. Remove the food from the freezer. The following three items must be removed to access the panel in the back of the freezer. 1. Remove the shelves below the ice maker. 2. Lift up the plastic shield over the light to remove and then 3. Unscrew the light bulb. Using the 1/4 in nutdriver, remove the two hex screws at the top of the panel. Carefully slide it up and out past the shelf brackets. Below the cooling coils, identify the defrost heater. Using the phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws, one on the left and one on the right. Carefully manipulate the heater to pull down and remove the slip-on electrical connections at either end. Reversing the procedure, install the new defrost heater slipping on each of the electrical connections and then screwing in the two screws. Be sure to position the wires they were originally to avoid interference when reinstalling the panel. Slip the panel in place behind the shelf brackets and align the holes. Insert and tighten the hex screws. Screw in the lightbulb and replace the plastic light cover. Replace the shelves. Return your food and plug the unit back in. Done!

What an awesome site! After putting in my model number and finding the problem I was having, I simply picked the 2 parts that were most likely to solve the problem. I bought a defrost thermostat, and defrost heater. To a high certainty, they would solve my problem. They didn't however! I ended up having to buy a temperature sensor on another order a few weeks later when the problem resurfaced! My own fault. I should have bought it the first time. As others have written: the longest part of the job is defrosting the ice from the coil. One thing I did that I didn't see suggested: plug the drain hole below the coil. I put a couple towels in the bottom of the freezer and ran the hair dryer. Didn't take long. I read that the amount of water created will overflow the pan under the refrigerator, so I plugged the drain hole. Once you clean that mess up, the repair is pretty straight forward. Great site. Even through I had to make two separate purchases, I still saved a lot of money. Thanks!

Temp. Sensor was under an egg shaped cover on the left side wall in the refrigerator. Remove the cover, cut the two wires to the old sensor and remove it. Connect the new sensor to the two wires using butt connectors. Replace cover and done.

Totally followed the instructions of the video that came with the sensor. Unplugged the the fridge, defrosted the freezer. Cut off the main sensor that usually is the one that goes out. Installed the the new sensor with new wire terminals, crimped them and covered with electrical tape. Fridge works like a charm. Partsselect is excellent. Saved me a few hundred dollars versus having a GE Tech come and do it.

Refrigerator Fresh Food condenser iced-up. Frozen side OK

  • Customer: Dan from Decatur, GA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Had to remove all the covers and fans to expose the condenser, which was difficult as the parts were frozen to it. The styrofoam covering the condenser made it almost impossible to defrost it. Therefore, I ripped the styrofoam off to expose the condenser. Was not really difficult to fix the styrofoam cover using metal tape. Replaced temperature sensor in aluminum block, and used butyl sealant to secure. Had to also re-install parts of ice-ball kit that were not well covered. Lots of parts to keep track of, but anyone could do it.

freezer would not defrost or maintain temperature

luckly i have a bit of experience in refrigeration im an hvac technician by trade. this repair was a bit tricky in that i did not know at first if it was a Temperature Sensor issue or the main control board. I had tested the defrost termination thermostat and the defrost heater and as i suspected they were ok. Next i wanted to test the thermistors (temp sensors) it is hard to find technical data on these fridges. I needed to test the thermistors resistance @ a certian temperature to ensure they were working properly but where do u get such data? I also wanted to know some information about the logic programmed into the board (i.e when do you initiate defrost etc. . .). I had no such luck so i figured since i tested the defrost heater and thermostat and they were ok and all of the evap fans and such were working i'd order a circuit board and new thermistors. Got the CORRECT PARTS from this site in 2 business days and my fridge is working great! changing the parts was really easy, figuring out which parts to change was the only difficult thing about this job.
