Temperature Sensor

This temperature sensor, also known as a thermistor, is used for refrigerators and freezers. The sensor sends the temperature reading of the refrigerator towards the control board....

$12.74

Defrost Thermostat

This defrost termination thermostat acts as a safety device to stop the evaporator coil from overheating, by turning off the defrost heater at the end of the defrost cycle. The thermostat measures the temperature in your freezer to ensure that it stays at an optimum temperature to keep your frozen food from thawing. Some common symptoms linked to a faulty defrost termination thermostat include: the freezer is not defrosting, is too cold/too warm, or there is a frost build up in the freezer. Before you decide to replace this part, ensure that there is no frost build up in your freezer; as a build up can interfere with the thermostat reading.

Dispenser Door Assembly or Flapper

The dispenser door assembly (or flapper) is what opens to release the ice once the lever has been pressed. This part mounts in the ice dispenser. The cranker no longer comes with this part. You can use the original crank. The crank is sold separately depending on the model number of the appliance. For this repair, all you will need is a Phillips screw driver and a small flat blade. Disconnect the power, remove the escutcheon from around the dispenser, lift up the control panel, disconnect all wire connectors, use a screwdriver to remove all four screws of the housing, and lift the housing out. You will now see the flapper: push the tabs that are securing it in place to remove the piece, install the new flapper by lining it up and snapping into place.

After replacing the defrost heater, main board and thermistor I still had the same problem. Called a repair guy and he (with the help of GE on the phone) diagnosed that the temperature sensor was bad. So I ordered from partselect and installed it and it fixed the problem. Been good for a couple months (knocking on wood). To install I had to cut the 2 wir... read more

The freezer in my side-by-side kept warming up -- often 20 degrees or more, which of course caused the fresh food side to warm up also. I do a lot of jump-in-with-both-feet home repairs, but never on a large appliance. Not having an ohmmeter, which cost about $100 for a reliable one, I took the symptoms to the internet. Countless self-help sites and U-Tube v... read more

I have a fridge in my garage. I have found that a glass of ice water or a cold drink outside is very important to me. When I discovered melting ice dripping onto the garage floor I was very upset. I spun the fridge and found that the compressor and fan weren't starting. I got out my multi-meter and discovered that power was not making it to these compon... read more
