Refrigerator side was not cooling

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.

iec maker discharge chute frosting over not allowing ice to dispence

Your video was very helpful but it addressed the model as having pull out racks, where as my freezer had pull out drawer baskets. This made removing the back panel very difficult. Secondly while I installed a new thermostat you should replace the temp.sensor as to avoid the difficult removal of the panel a second time if that proved to be defective also. Replaced thermostat and the problem of frosting over improved until the next day when the outdoor humidity increased the ice chute started to frost a little. I then replaced the ice door flapper and so far with the two replacements the the problem has been solved.

Freezer iced up and frige too warm.

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.

It required three different efforts to secure the correct part, but once the right one came, it required no more than removing the old bucket and replacing it with the new one, which is now working perfectly.

We just pried off the fan blades and pushed on the new part. Could not have been easier. The rat has been permanently dipatched and, hopefully, that is that.
