GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out. Looking at forums it says this model does not have a defrost timer, instead has mother board that controls the defrost. I would think that if the mother board was bad it wouldn't heat at all. Any info you have would be helpful
This is how the defrost works . I have NEVER found a defrost problem associated with a bad main control board since these computerized GE's came out in 2000 . Lots of thermistor problems , lying to the board , causing different problems . \015\ ...

Defrost Problem I havea Maytag MSD 2456DE side by side. The freezer is not properly defrosting and this impacts the temperature of the refrigerator. I've defrosted it manually three times in as many weeks. What is the most likely cause...thermostat? circuit board? Do you know how to determine which it is? - JoDawg
The first thing to check is the defrost heating element, then the defrost limit switch, if good, then its probably the main circuit board. ...

Refridgerator , works fine for a few days then it goes into defrost and does not come out until everthing thaws out. I had a new relay switch installed and that helped for about 3 weeks. Computer board located on the back top panel checked out ok. I am thinking that it is either the compressor or thermostat. Causing it to not come out of the defrost cycle.
If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won't turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.With an ...

I have a gss201epd ge side by side. the everything works great but the ice cubes keep melting together into a clump. the temp is usually about 0 to 10 degrees but occaisionally i find it to be up to 40. I suspect this is during defrost. The main board has been replaced as well as a burned out defrost heater. The repair tech also replaced some small capsule-looking sensors in the unit due to a recall. Still have the problem and he gave up on it. Now i'm on my own with over $300 dollars invested s

Refrigerator leaks The other day, there was a small puddle underneath the fridge; bad enough that it caused the floor boards to warp. This has happened twice (the I'm aware of) since I moved into my unit, but I'm sure it's happened in past because I could tell the boards were already warped. Previous owners only mentioned that the ice maker may not work. After defrosting the fridge, it made ice twice, leaked, then never made ice again. Lately, I've also had issues with the intern

Freezer fan noisey. By looks caused by ice. Compressor continually running. Condensation on the top part of freezer. Ice slushie. Top fridge cool and works fine. Looks to be the freezer stuck on defrost cycle. Is this likely the control board or a sensor?

MSD2456DE. I just replaced th flapper on the ice dispenser and everything was working fine. At lunch the nexd day we kept hearing a click every few minutes, by evening, water was driping and we discovered that ice cream and everything in the freezer was thawing. Would the circuit board connection on front of the door caused this frig to get stuck in the defrost mode? Help would be appreciated.
No, the circuit board mounted inside the ice dispenser on the door has no control over the defrost mode. Furthermore, the problem you appear to be having is not with the defrost system, rather the compressor attempting to start, but failing. This cou ...

The freezer evap is iced up, have de-iced once before. The element is ok, With no defrost time clock on this fridge, what would be the most common cause?
The klixon or the pc board ?

Air Flow to Refrigerator keeps getting blocked by ice buildup. Seems to be only a main board on back of refrigerator - upper left facing rear of appliance. (no defrost timer in frig.) Is the main board replacement the only option if defrost thermostat and defrost heater are operational?

Defroster problems my defroster heating element is not heating and my coils are froze over. I talked to a tech who said I can jump a couple wires and put it into a test mode the only problem is I can not find how to get to circiut board. I took the panels off in the feezer and seen the temp sensor. so I need to know how to get to the board and also does the heating element use 120vac on both legs to heat or is it 120vac on one leg and the board sends a ground on the other? also the temp sensor o

GE side by side: Model GSL25JFPABS Does not defrost. Circulating fan is working. Heating element works when 110v is apllied to it. Points in thermostat are closed (freezer warm). Installed new circuit board Door gaskets sealing well. There is no way (I presume) to force the circuit board to bring on the defrost circuit. (unlike older timer motor). Without a wiring diagram I cannot check all components. My assumption is that the board cuts power to the compressor and then powers
This is a old problem with maytag refrigerator, coil icing over I have changed the t'stat heating element assy,coil still ice over All fans are working, i removed adaptive defrost board and found it to be burnted by some resistors and I replaced with the substitute board (#61005899) but whe i turn on my temperature control nothing happens compressor will not start, so I install old burnt board and compressor starts it just wont activate the defrost cycle but ill do it if i jump it out by jumpi

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

GE TFX22ZRAAD with cooling problems. Evaporator coils icing and fridge temp drop into high 50's-60's. Fixed once, unsure if timer adjust was the cure. How do I determine the cause to be either the defrost timer, the defrost heater or the defrost thermostat (as these are most likely causes)? Help. Thx!!
To start with turn the time till it clickes into the defrost mode. Remove the evaporator cover an see if the heater comes on. If no heat after a few minuites un plug the frig. Check the resistance across the heater. Check if the defrost thermostat is ...
