I have a GE PSS26 MGTA BB siode by side refrigerator. Problem was that it would get warm in frig and freezer at times. Looked at coils in freezer and they wer iced over. I replaced heater and heater thermostat that clips to the top of coiols and problem still exists. I have discovered that if you try to put the frig in defrost mode (code 14) the heater never comes on, HOWEVER, if you run the reset, (code 15) then run the defrost (code 14) the heater will come on ever time.

Our refrigerator is not getting cold but the freezer is working like a charm. The compressor is still working also. I've heard remove everything, unplug it and let it sit for 24 hours to defrost it and plug it back in. Is this resetting the defrost and is this a smart thing to do?
Yes , this is to confirm that the defrosting happens as the vents might be clogged due to malfunction of the defrost timer not acting and so frost will form on the vent to prevent flow of cold air to the fridge.\012If after about 8 hours the fr ...

I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to. The freezer was over packed at one time and I think that had something to do with it. How do I reset the mechanism that will let this defrost again and get it back on it timer

The refrigerator was purchased and installed in early 2006. About 2008 we started having problems with items in the fresh food crisper freezing while the top area of the freezer, ice maker, thaws. Turning the power off and back on resets the situation the first time. That (reset) was good for about four months but then the problem reoccurs and the refrigerator has to be defrosted to get it to work correctly. (There is no notable frost or ice,
