I recently replaced the defrost element in my freezer and after that I notice my fresh food fridge is not cooling. What can be the problem?
You will want to make sure that when the defrost heater was replaced that the coils were completely defrosted. If not it would cause the unit to not cool in the refrigerator section properly. If they were then you will want to check to make sure that the coils are not frosting up again. If so then the defrost timer would most likely be the cause of failure.
In regards to GE part no. wr9x569,can you tell me where the off position is,for example 12:00 6:00
We do not have information as to where the off position would be at. This would all vary model to model depending on the set up and configuration of the thermostat.
I have an old 1992 GE Monogram. The freezer works fine, but the refrigerator side won't get any colder than 50 degrees. I've cleaned the coils and checked for overloading, but still no change.
Is it the thermostat?
It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
