Hi, My GE side-side had a glitch a few days ago. This unit has, per manual, ClimateKeeper2, two evaporators. I opened the refrigerator side that morning and felt warm/hot air blowing. The freezer side was working, cold, showing 0 deg on LED light. I turned off the unit for 1 hr and pluged it back in. Cold air coming in both sides but unit would not shut down when temp reached. Condenser fan working, no noise coming from fridge. Freezer always shows 0 deg no matter what, (LED light). but the refrigerator side show accurate temp on LED. HELP
You will want to check to see if the fan in the refrigerator is working. This can be done by pushing in on the light switch. If the fan is working then you should hear a small noise coming from the back wall or feel air coming from the vent. If this checks ok, with the issue of the heat blowing in the refrigerator before restarting it, would sound like a faulty main control board.
When I replaced the defroster its just working for 5 days and it frosted again.
Answer Hello TI. You will need to check the heater, thermostat, and the timer on the unit. Any of the 3 parts can cause the problem you are having with the unit. Also, if your model uses a defrost thermistor, you will need to check it as well. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How do I test part to see if it is defective?
Answer Hello Tony. Sorry, the manufacturer does not offer the instructions on testing this part. If we knew the issue you had and your model number, we may be able to help you find the problem with the unit. Thanks.
