Question:

Heres my problem. My refrigerator AND freezer keep going into defrost mode, stay there for too long which causes everything to completely defrost but then it will turn back on with both the fridge and the freezer working. I was told the thermistor is causing this to happen. Is that the case here?

Amanda
Answer:

Hello Amanda, a faulty thermistor can cause this reaction. You can find the thermistor on the freezer evaporator coils. To replace this part, you will need to order it here WR55X10025. Best of luck with this repair!

Question:

I need to replace the temperature sensors in my fridge but I don’t know where to start. Is there more than one temperature sensor in most units? Do you know how many are in mine? And can I purchase the same part that many times or is there a different one for each sensor location?

Christina
Answer:

Hello Christina, your model has 3 sensors. To replace all 3, you will need to order 1 WR09X10050, and 2 WR55X10025. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Question:

Are the three thermistors or temp sensors the same part number for all three positions in the refrigerator ? Also i have had people out to fix they have misdiagnosed problem twice ,changing motherboard on wrty, inverter on compressor , and a retro fit part heater next to custom cool, these fixes did not solve the problem of 3 to 5 degree freezer temps and 53 to 55 degree fridge temps ? Please help i don't think they know there business!!

Thomas for model number PCF25PGSBBB
Answer:

Hi Thomas, Thank you for the questions, yes the PS304103 is the same Temperature Sensor in each location on the appliance. If the fans are running and with the other parts already replaced the next thing would be the temperature sensor. Hope this helps!

Question:

GE side by side refrigerator. The refrigerator is not cold enough. The coils in the freezer are iced up. Tested for continuity in the thermostat and heater unit. The evaporator fan works. I notice a freezer and fresh food thermistor for this model. Are they both the same part number.

Donald for model number GSS201BPA CC
Answer:

Hello Donald, thank you for contacting us. There can be some frost on the coils but not ice built up on it. that will need to be defrosted if that's the case, it will cause issues. If you have tested the defrost thermostat and heater and they are working properly the next step would be the temperature sensor. Hope this helps!

Question:

My refrigerator and freezer are too warm. Before that the refrigerator would intermittently freeze liquids and food. Can you tell me how many sensors are in my model? I found one in the freezer but want to make sure exactly how many there are. Thank you.

Ross for model number GSL25JFTABS

Question:

Here's my problem. My freezer is not freezing and heating up. This subsequently caused my fridge to warm up also. I did notice the compressor is not turning on. The coils have been cleaned and the fan is running. I did take apart the inside of the fridge to expose the coils and didn't see any ice. Would this be a defrost limiter or maybe a thermister (temp sensor)? It appears that there are 4 temp sensors on this unit or at-least that's what i could find. 2 in the fridge and 2 in the freezer. Are all these temp sensors the same part? Please help!!

Nate for model number PSS26NGPBBB
Answer:

Hi Nate, Thank you for the question. I recommend replacing the capacitor ,PartSelect Number PS11764031.This part helps the compressor kick on and off while maintaining a constant temperature to keep things frozen in your freezer. Hope this helps!

Question:

My refrigerator, freezer and cold food section keep getting warm.

KEITH for model number GSL25JFPDBS
Answer:

Hello Keith, thank you for contacting us. It is possible that the temp sensor is faulty causing the fridge and freezer to get too warm. Also it could be the defrost thermostat. The thermostat measures the temperature in your freezer to ensure that it stays at an optimum temperature to keep your frozen food from thawing. You can test these parts with a multi-meter. Hope this helps!

Question:

How do I test the temperature sensor.

Rene Ramirez for model number GSS25WGTAWW
Answer:

Hi Rene, Thank you for the question. The best way to do this is to remove the thermistor from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature or grab a glass of ice water to test the thermistor. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

Fridge got up to 52 degrees ( I think normal is 37 degrees). The fan was not blowing in the fridge. Freezer was at 2 degrees . Fan was blowing.Shut off unit for a day and defrosted it. There was water in the bottom of the freezer. Started up the unit and fridge is now at 37 and freezer is at zero ( this is normal). I suspect this will be ok for a week or so. Advice. Thanks

Gary for model number PDS22SCRALSS

Question:

Both freezer and fridge are warm. You recommend changing the temperature sensor in the freezer. Pfe29psdass has a digital display that shows correct temperatures in freezer and fridge. Right now 68°f. Because the temperature displayed is correct i am concerned that the temperature sensors are functioning correctly and they may not cause the warm condition. Or are there other sensors used to display the temperature?

Nick for model number PFE29PSDASS
Answer:

Hi Nick, Thank you for your question. Yes they are, it does not hurt to test them with a multi meter though just to make sure. You could also test your run capacitor and the start relay of your compressor as well. If that is not it, then it may be your board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hello Lawrence, thank you for contacting us. That could be an issue with the evaporator fan motor, you can remove the back panel in the freezer to inspect it as it should be spinning to circulate cold air into the fridge. If the freezer is frosting up there could be an issue with the defrost cycle, either the bi metel defrost thermostat or the defrost heater could be faulty. You can test these with a multi meter. Good luck with the repair!

ilse for model number GSH22JSRESS
Answer:

Hello Ilse, thank you for contacting us. That sounds like you have some dust and debris built up on the condenser coils. Take a look at the back of the fridge, you may have to remove a panel, but near the compressor there are coils and they need to be clean and clear. If these get dirty they can cause the compressor to run constantly and will get very hot to the touch. Hope this helps!

Bill for model number Cannot locate the model number
Answer:

Hi Bill, thanks for the question. Your warm temperature light should not be on all the time, as it is designed to notify you when the refrigerator is running too warm. If the light is on, but the refrigerator temperature seems normal, your temperature sensor may not be functioning properly. You can test your temperature sensor by using an ohm meter or multi-meter. For more information on how to repair your temperature sensor, please see our repair help section. I hope this has answered your question.

Freezer and fresh food section getting warm due to inside coils frosting over.

No self defrost. Measured heater coil with ohm meter which was OK (not open). Ordered 2 temp sensors (there are 2 in freezer, 2 in fresh food sections). The original and the new all meaured ~150 ohms. Replaced one by one. This did not fix problem. Ordered defrost thermostat. Original measured ~150 ohms - new one was ~100 ohms. Unpluged refridgerator. Removed coil panel (4 nut screws) in freezer and light cover (1 small phillips screw). Locate defrost thermostat clipped to top of coils (orange / pink wires). Cut wires and unclipped thermostat. Stripped insulation off of wires and reconnect using wire nuts. Clipped thermostat back to coils. Ran refridgerator without panel on coils to see if coils frosted up again and listend for fans/compressor to stop ( took hours). Opened freezer and viewed glow of defrost heater. Problem resolved.

Freezer cooling, but freezer fan not operating consistently

My refrigerator's initial problem was as follows:

1. Freezer fan stopped circulating the cooled air. Causing food to thaw at the top of the freezer, and freeze solid at the bottom. Ice in the icemaker thawed.

2. Water dripped from the freezer door gasket when the freezer was in defrost mode & water dispenser would not dispense water.

--FIX (the easy one first..):
2. I removed the inner freezer door panel and found ice filling every void of the freezer door panel-approx 5 lbs of ice dammed in the panel. I thawed the insulation and removed the ice. Also there is a styrofoam insulating surround around the inside of the dispenser panel. The styrofoam had become saturated with water and was freezing, allowing the drinking water tube to freeze, not allowing the refrigerator to dispense water...
THE CAUSE:
2. Overflowing of water from the in-door ice/water dispenser compartment reservoir (just under the grill where your glass sits, when it's dispensing water) was draining into the freezer door panel.
PREVENTION:
2. Check the reservoir more frequently to make sure water does not build up and overflow into the door.

FIX (now the trickier one..)
1. I initially thought it was the main circuit board. I replaced the board. Access is by removing the 3 hex nut screws holding door in place at the rear of the freezer. Disconnect connectors & using a needle nose pliers, squeezed the plastic catches that hold the board in place. Connect the new board (being careful not to touch the components or traces on the board) to the connectors, then snap into place using the white plastic catches.
Close everything up.

NOTE: This may, may not have contributed to the problem, but my refrigerator light went out. I replaced it with a small flouresent bulb. That bulb did not last, and became inop. Shortly afterward, the freezer started malfunctioning. I replaced the board, and the freezer was still somewhat intermittent. I replaced the bulb with an appliance 60 watt. The freezer has been perfect since...

Note: I first ordered the main circuit board, when that didn't immediately fix the problem, I ordered the above parts. I did not need the parts and am returning them. The web page is forcing me to select at least one of the parts needed for the repair, when I used neither.

Freezer would have ice blockage and eventually both sides would quit cooling. Starting with the refriidgerator side then the freezer side temp would eventually begin to rise all over the course of 2 to 3 days.

Unplugged the refrigerator and removed inside back panel from the freezer compartment and left doors open to allow all ice to thaw. I chose not to use a hair dryer and speed up the process as this could possibly cause more damage if not done with caution. After all ice was melted i took both screws from heat element assembly and followed the simple instructions that came with the new part. Since meters an i dont really work well together and since defrost thermostat and temp sensor were so inexpensive. I opted to purchase those as well in my initial order. They were as simple to replace as a lightbulb. Unscrew the wire nuts from existing sensors and screw wire nuts back on to the new sensors. Buy purchasing all three items at once i felt it just ensured the fiz was complete and the unit has been operating for 7 days like new. One thing i would pass on. If it is the heating element that is burned out, the glass tuve on mine was very black and charred looking. Also when you take it out of the assembly the element was actually in two pieces. Did something cause the element to stay on until it burned out or just old age i dont know. Again, for less than 20 bucks i purchased the additional parts that would seem most obvious to replace and i would recommebd the same. Part select saved us a lot of money not only in parts but in allowing someone with no considerable knowledge in this areato make repairs without hiring an expensive repairman.

Refridgerator was not defrosting & so was getting warm

On the PartSelect website, I chose the 'refridgerator is too warm' problem choice. The site sugested replacing the sensors so I purchased them. The drain trough on the refrigerator side was leaking and it and the defrost thermostat were not too expensive so I bought them too.
Once the parts arrived I installed them. I had already disassembled the inside of the freezer. The sensors and thermostat had to be connected electrically. So I cut off the old parts and stripped their wires. (the new parts' wires were already stripped.) I then used wire nuts to connect the new wires to the old and stuffed the wire back into its compartment and installed its cover. The defrost Thermostat has to be clipped to the refrigeration line. So after attaching its wires I had to work it into its place.
I then reassembled the inside of the freezer and let it sit for an hour before turning it back on. Once it was turned on it seemed to work well, but after only 3 or 4 days the coils began freezing over again.

Refrigerator kept getting warm

I am a 45 year old woman who is pretty handy but with no prior knowledge about appliance repair. I do have the attitude that if someone else can do it, so can I, which is helpful. I was able to watch a video on this website that showed me exactly how to replace one of the three parts that I replaced. It totally made it easy so that I knew what to do with the wiring. So far, my side by side is working great. I'm the champion! This repair cost me about $75. Who knows how much a repair man would have charged just to look at it.

Fridge section not cooling evap. Coils frozen up

Thanks to the very fine posts on this site, and availablity of parts, I didn't have to call in a repair man. Due to the near-10 year age of unit, I first ordered a new fridge for the kitchen and moved the GE to the garage. Let it manually defrost. Figured based upon comments posted here I was dealing with the defrost system problem so ordered the temperature sensors for top and botton, the defrost thermostat, and the defrost heater. As a wise poster said, if I am going to pull the damn thing apart, I'm going to make sure I have all three parts in case I need a particular one. Do not have the skill or gauges to troubleshoot electrical components. Parts arrived from Parts Select in great time, and excellent packaging protection. Parts Select also has great diagrams of the unit, although I could not find written repair instructions anywhere. At first I was going to wait for the parts to arrive and replace everything, but since there was a dely in getting the new fridge in, and the freezer section of the old fridge worked fine, once I had defrosted the old fridge, and cleaned up a few of the rusted over connections, I put everything back together, to await new fridge and receipt of parts for old fridge. Well, as is the story of my Karmic life, once fridge defrosted, and I put everything back together, plugged old unit in inside garage, everything came back up working perfectly on the recommended settings for both freezer and fridge sections. Has continued to maintain correct temps for over a week now. Also have new fridge. Don't recommend the top freezer Maytag one for about $700, as construction is cheap, and temps fluctuate all over the place. Had Home Depot exchange out for the LG $740 top freezer model, and am really impressed with its construction and performance so far. (Both units are recommended buys by ConsumerRepots.Org) Not sure how long old unit will keep running correctly, nor what caused it to come back to life after the defrost. Perhaps a simple clogged drain tube, or shorted out rusted electrical connections that I cleaned. Anyway, am keeping Part Select parts on hand for possible future breakdown, and enjoying having both fridges running. We needed additional freezer space, and got the peace of mind of a new unit for the kitchen.

Defrost cycle would not cycle off

Replaced Defrost Thermostat. Tricky removal of light fixture cover and evaporator cover. Light cover screw removal is not intuiitive and the eveaporator cover tabs are not easy AT ALL to remove.Once they are removed, simply 2 screw removal of rear panel.

Had to unscrew screws holding cooling coils to gain access to thermostat mounted on a coil in rear.

Simkple matter to cut wires, remove old thermostat and splice replacement back on. Found it simpler to re-mount thermostat on top coil greatly simplifying process.(Why didn't they place the original unit in this much more accesible place?)
Re-attach coils to rear wall replace rear panel, light fixture cover and evaporator cover.

Refrigerator has been running fine this past week.

Received parts NEXT DAY! FANTASTIC!

Refrigerator not defrosting, ice tray clogging up in ice tray, refrigerator making loud humming noise, and compressed running all the time.

First, turn off power - since I did not want to pull the refrigerator out on my wood floor I tripped the circuit breaker to that circuit and opened door to make sure interior light was off (ensuring power was off). This unit has a bottom freezer, I took out all shelves, ice maker and all parts in the way of accessing back of interior of freezer section. Removed back plastic section by removing one screw in middle top of back panel and prying it out. This was a bit difficult as it was in there a bit tight but once the plastic warmed up it pulled out ok. This revealed the compressor section and temp sensor that was attached to the copper coils with of all things - a zip tie! In pictures of this that I looked at on various web sites the sensor was on a metal bracket attached to the coil so it made me wonder if tf the factory took a shortcut? I cut the old sensor wire, stripped the two wires 1/2", and connected them to the new sensor wire with butt connectors, I put some silicone into the ends of the butt connectors to prevent moisture from entering into connectors and wrapped the connection in black electrical tape. I then "attached" the sensor to the coil using a zip tie, put the plastic back piece back on, inserted everything I took out and put power back to refrigerator. It's been 3 days and temp of refrigerator is stable, ice maker not clogging up, and compressor not running all the time! So far so good.

Defrost not working coil iced up

Removed back wall cover over coil. Defrost all ice with a hair dryer. Cut white wires and replaced Temperature Sensor. It has been working for a week and no trouble at this time. If you have this system on your GE refrigerator do this before replacing the motherboard. I must admit I was thinking that was the trouble. Motherboard was replaced after 5 years old now 5 years later my thinking is this a 5 year problem. So try the Temperature Sensor.

Both freezer and refigerator were warm.

I watched the video online and it said there were three sensors in the refrigerator, two in the freezer and one in the refrigerator. I only ordered one sensor and was going to try the one in the refrigerator first. He said the upper one in the freezer is the most difficult, but is usually the problem. So, I replaced the upper sensor and tried restarting the unit. Everything went well and it fixed the problem.
