Hello - and thanks for taking the time to read my email. I'm writing to inquire about a defrost thermostat? I originally bought a WR51X10031 defrost heater, and it seems to be working fine, but I am still getting the ice build-up on the evap coils on the back of my GE side by side. Would you mind letting me know what parts you have to fix this ASAP please? Thanks again, Andy412.302.7002
If the heater is working, then either the defrost thermostat is bad or the defrost timer board is not functioning correctly. ...

Ice maker my ice maker is not making ice and the drinking fountain on the external part of the door is not giving water, but there was a slow drip there. This morning the freezer defrosted so I reset it on a higher freezing setting. I am still not getting either ice or water. I check the water lines to make sure they were not clamped etc.... This is a GE side by side purchased new in June of 2003. Hope you can help. Thanks
We had a similar problem when we first purchased ours. It turned out that where the water line had been punched through into the house line, the punch ended up having to be backed out a little and then punched through again. The initial installatio ...

GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:
1. Defrost Control
2. Drain Trough Heater
3. Defrost Heater
4. Defrost Thermostat
It seems as if the Defrost Heater is working fine, otherwise the icicles would not be running down sides of freezer and e
I have a GE side by side refrigerator and I just replaced the defrost heater last week because it would cool and than freeze up and I would have to turn in off and defrost it myself. Now it cools and stays cool but like twice a day it must defrost itself and there is water on the floor and the ice in the ice maker is soild.
Icemaker solid:\015\012\015\012This could be a problem with the icemaker not dumping the ice or with the water valve in back not shuting off completely.\015\012\015\012\015\012Water in the floor:\015\012\015\ ...

I am trying to trouble shoot the de frost system on a whirlpool #ed5hbexts01 side by side refer. I have found the evapv. froven and will not go to defrost. The defrost thermo reads open with my fluke meter. Evap frozen top to bottom remove thermo and brought to room temp still reads open. Trying to figure if defrost timer is bad or thermo. I would think that the thermo would open on rise of temp and start cooling cycle over. any thoughts
Thermo takes out the defrost heater but still times itself down. have you tried to put it into a manual defrost? ...
I have a Maytag Model # MSD2957AEB side by side refrigerator and the coils in the freezer part each month seem to freeze up. This causes the cold vent leading to the refrigerator to stop the cold air flowing into the refrigerator. Each month I need to open the freezer side remove the back cover and defrost the coils. I assume it is the defroster not working correctly. Is the defroster the small cylindrical metal piece connected to the defrost element or is the defrost mechanism somewhere els

I have a GE side by side fridge (DSS25KSRC). Determined the defrost heater has gone bad and ordered the replacement part. The part arrived, have the freezer panel off, however the original part in the freezer is not the same as the new part. New part (# WR51X10042) has 2 plugs on each end of the heater and 2 glass tubes making up the heater. The original part installed in the freezer has only 1 plug and one glass tube. I've checked the GE website and diagram and the new part they sent is li

I have a kenmore side by side model # 59587998 I bought a new inlet water valve part number 2304833. The problem I'm encountering is that the previous/current connections are threaded.

I have a Kenmore side by side model #106.50517001. It started defrosting and not coming back on at odd times, I thought that it was probably the defrost timer, you could unplug the fridge, plug it back in and it would start working but when you turned the timer screw, it would go off then not come back on. I replaced the timer and it still wasn't working. Out of frustration I slapped the control panel cover and it came on. What else inside there do I need to replace?

The problem which I have mostly fixed already is that I need a new defrost limit thermostat defrost timer and possibly a new defrost heater. I cant find a repair manual for my model fridge nor can I locate part #'s to insure they are the exact ones I need for my fridge. I have looked for a few hours but everything is giving me a guess on what part I should use. I just want to know what part to order or to pick up at Home Depo.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator model 10652582201 seven years old. The bottom part of the freezer is working properly but there's no ice on the top part and no cold air in the refrigerator side. I guess it's a problem in the air flow system because I can't hear the usual fan sound. Please give me some guidance to find the part to replace. I'm in Brazil and there's no Kenmore service here.

When you attempt to adjust the temp via the controls, freezer will not go off until set to zero. I think this may be due to the frost build up.

The refrigerator side will not go lower than 45-50 degrees. I can feel the air flow from the freezer in the upper left hand side. When I removed the plastic cover at the top, the right side light bulb went out. After I poked and jingle things looking for the adaptive defrost assembly the light came back on for a minute and then went back out. Is this short part of the adaptive defrost assembly problem or a problem all it's own. The freezer side is fine - no

My freezer is running fine but the refrigerator is warm. There is frost on the freezer side not on the interior but I can see it through the vent. There is frost build up in the lower side of the refrigerator behind a blue flap. Your web site recommended replacing the adaptive defrost control but another web site said it could also be the defrost thermostat, defrost heater and one other defrost part. I'm not sure what I should buy. They talk about testing wires but I don't understand how to do

Leonard fridge frost free 480 - would not defrost, consequently the ice built-up prevents the bottom compartment to get cold while freezer works fine. How do I have a look at the defrost coil or would it be the timer that does not work? Who would sell the spare parts for this fridge?
Good evening, i am working on a refrigerator. G.E MOD GSS25KGTBWW, SER GL434149. TODAY ITS O.K. BUT FROM THE EVIDENCE IT LOOKS LIKE THE UNIT WILL HEAT UP IN THE FREEZER[POSSIBLY DURING DEFROST] TO THE POINT OF DEFROSTING THE ICE IN THE BUCKET ,AND THE FOOD TO PARTIALLY DEFROST. THEN IT WOULD REFREEZE LEAVING LONG ICICLES IN THE FREEZER. WHAT CAUSES THIS? I'VE HEARD OF THIS HAPPENING TO G.E SIDE BY SIDE MODELS BUT NEVER LEARNED WHAT CAUSED THAT SITUATION. WHAT DO I DO TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENIN

Model MSD2732GR side by side refrigerator has intermittently stopped cooling for quite some time now. Unfortunately, it is now more frequent- the freezer defrosts and gets warmer spoiling all the food as the fridge side does the same. Wondering if it has something to do with a faulty thermostat, relay, or similar? It acts like it goes in to defrost mode and then has trouble going back on. Any idea which part I should replace?
Click on the link and you will see where your defrost timer and themostat is. without being there to hear the noises start there. See if the fan in the freezer and the fan behind at the bottom of the refrigerator in the back are working and you get g ...

I have a Frigidaire Refrigerator (side by side) - and both sides are not working. We noticed the Defroster-Heater was cracked and when we connected the cracked area the fan would turn on. We just replaced the defroster-heater, but now nothing turns on. Can you please tell me what I should check next.
Check the defrost timer, it may be stuck in the defrost mode. In defrost mode the heater will not come on unless the thermo disc is cold. This disc is attached to the coils close to where they come into the freezer. ...
