Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Where is the defrost timer in a GE PTS25LHR arctica profile top freezer -- refrigerator?

\015 Bought it new in 2004, have had mother board and compressor replaced \012in 2010, now it won't stay cool. Started about a week ago; unplugged for a few minutes and a few hours later was cooling fine. Lasted for a week, now doing same thing. I have watched a few videos, pulled fridge out, cleaned everything. I am at the end of my expertise,,,,,, ready to roll out into the street and beat some sense into it!!! Wish I hadn't put my Kenmore(Amana actually) in storage for 4 months( bought it new in '93...... never had problem 1 with it for 10 years. Very disappointed with this GE.\015

I have a 7 year old GE refrigerator (top mounted freezer) that seems to stay in defrost too long-- everything in the freezer defrosts, the ice cubes start to melt, the ice cream gets soft, etc. Food in the fridge doesn't keep well.

I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK.

I have an amana ASD2522wrw03. The refrigerator portion and the top of the freezer by the frige vent are warm. The rest of the freezer is cold but there is a lot of ice build up. I am assuming that the problem has to do with either the heat/defrost part and or the timer or thermostat controlling the defrost. Can anyone walk me through how to test these parts? Thanks

I do not believe the other advisor understand my problem. I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator PSS25NGMDBB. The problem is the cup fill (GE part name) is frozen and full of ice. So when the ice maker ask to be refilled the water spills down the back of the freezer instead of going in the ice tray. The rest of the freezer is defrosted as it should so I don't believe that is the problem. When I cycle the ice maker the water looks like it shuts off as it should. So I'm not sure if the wate
