Removed the panel on the back wall inside the freezer side. To do this I unplugged the appliance, removed the racks, drawer, bulb and two screws holding the panel in place. The defrost cycle was not working so ice buildup on the coil was to the point of blocking air flow to the refrigerator side. I used a hair dryer set on high and stuffed two towels at the base of the coil to collect the melting frost and ice. Once the coil was clear of frost and ice I took the defrost timer off by sliding the clip off the tube, cut the wires and stripped the ends so I could use wire nuts to make the new connections . Placed the new defrost timer in the clip and reattached in the same location the old one was removed from. The sensor was replaced by doing the same steps. I replaced the panel after all the wire nuts were secured and the wires were tucked away where they would not interfere with the fan. Replaced the bulb, drawer, racks and food and plugged The refrigerator back in. 20 minutes from beginning to end.

Removed the interior shelves and set screw which holds the light cover in place. Next I removed the four screws that hold the back panel in place. Located the defrost thermostat and removed it from the aluminum tubing by unclipping it, just as it was illustrated in the repair video. Cut the wires and stripped the ends and then connected them to the ends of the new defrost thermostat. Connected them together with an 16-14 gauge crimp style end cap. Taped the entry point into the end cap to reduce moisture penetration. Reassembled the back panel, light cover and shelves.

Frost on every thing, ice freezing in clumps in the ice bucket.

I followed the instructions according to the video on your web site. I removed the shelves and the ice bucket, then the back panel to access the thermostat and the temperature sensor. I cut the wires, then proceeded to replace the parts. Because I am 75 years old and not as agile as a younger person and I have to wear glasses made it was more difficult for me, it took me longer to do the job. My assistent (my sweet wife) was a lot of help because I had a hard time telling the orange wire from the pink wire. I reinstalled every thing back and plugged in the electric cord and prayed. Next, because the ice clumps broke the auger, I had to replace that. We pulled up the video and watched it over to check the sequences, and that made following the instructions very easy. With my assistent we were able to replace the auger without to much difficulty. This has fixed the problem. AMEN!

I went on Parts Select and typed in the problem, and they gave me the parts that might be the problem. So, I ordered the two parts, and put them in. Was really easy, as there are videos on parts select to help you remove the part and put the new one in. So simple. My freezer is working right now, so time will tell.

I called a repair shop and they said the control bd. was bad. They replaced it and about 2 weeks later it happened again. They came out again and replaced the bd. under warranty. About a week later it happened again. This seemed like too much of a coincidence, so I looked around on the internet and found your site. The video showed how to replace the freezer safety thermostat which I ordered on Sunday and received on Tuesday. By then the coils were iced up again. I completed the repair in about half an hour. So far the old GE is working like new. Thanks for the help. I just wish I hadn't spent over $400 for incompetent repair people in the first place. Thanks again, you guys are great! By the way the part only cost about $17 including shipping.

I looked at the video that came with the part and followed what i saw. My wife and i was about to go out and spend between $1500 and $2500 on a new refrigerator due to continuous defrosting. It had been happening for about a year. I followed the instructions from the video and the defrosting has stopped. Thanks so much for the video and the part! We do not need a new refrigerator after all.

Based on instruction I replaced the defrost thermostat and the temperature sensor. There was no improvement. The defrost thermostat was supplied with orange and red wires. the original wires were orange and pink. I connected the 2 orange wires and the pink to the red. So I don't really know if that is the problem or not. currently I don't know what to do next anyone got an ideas? It has dual evaporation.
