I have a GE model TFX26KRDAWW Fridge/freezer, and just bought a Wr51x10055. After it was installed EVERYTHING was GREAT, but now I'm having the same trouble, it's only been about two weeks. My QUESTION is what else could be wrong, could it be the new heater? (the old heater was bad also) Could it be the sensor??? Or something else?? I don't want to replace the entire fridge. Once I replaced the heater, I changed all my settings back to normal, But not I have to set them to the coldest just to get the compressor to kick on again. Help I'm confused!
Thanks, you guys STILL rock!
If there is frost building on the rear wall of the freezer again then the issue would most likely be the defrost timer. If there is not frost and the unit just is not coming back on then the operating thermostat may be causing the issue if you have to turn the dial each time to get it to start.
