The refrigerator trips the circuit breaker when I turn up the thermostat
Answer Hello Brian. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thermostat is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. Make sure the compressor is not grounded out on the unit.
Fridge runs for 10 hours and shuts off. I have to turn the dial timer for it to come back on.
Answer Hello Judd. Based on the information you provided, the defrost timer is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
I have to defrost the defrost heater with my blow dryer to get the temp up on the refrigerator side. It freeze up and will not defrost but when I use the hair dryer it start working again so I need to know which part is bad. thanks, Mae
You will want to test the defrost thermostat and defrost heater for continuity. If there is no continuity then replace that part. If there is continuity on both parts then the control board 241739709 is defective and would need to be replaced.
Hello, the fan is not moving because its froze up and now there is no cold air moving to the refregerator, what could it be?
If the evaporator fan has frost building around it causing it to not turn then you would have a defrost failure and would want to check for continuity on the defrost heater and thermostat. If either does not have continutiy then it nees to be replaced. If they do have continuity then you would want to replace the defrost timer. If there is not frost clogging the fan and the fan is not spinning but has 120vac to it then the fan motor should be replaced. 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
The fan isnt working is there a part that controls it?
Answer Hello Bill,
The fan circuit goes through the defrost timer. If the motor is not working you will want to check to make sure that there is power getting to the fan. The fan should have 120 vac. If no power then check the defrost timer to make sure that power is leaving defrost timer to the fan motor.
Ge profile bottom freezer. No cooling in fresh food section. Manually over rode defrost fridge shut off but does not go into defrost. ( removed bottom panel exposed coils no defrost. ) freezer temp is 4 degrees fresh food 70 degrees. Is there a test for defrost control or sensor?
Answer Hello Mel. 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
My refidgerator is constantly running and the temperature is below zero. It's a GE Profile bottom freezer. Can you help me with what part I need.
Answer Hello Kathy,
It sounds like you have a bad thermostat in refrigerator WR02X11036. The thermostat will control the operation of the unit and if it is freezing would be the most likely cause.
MY FREEZER HAS DEPFOSTED AND MY FOOD IS ALMOST COMPLETELY THAWED OUT. WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING PARTS IS POSSIBLY DEFECTIVE? 1. DEFROST TIMER 2. TEMPERATURE CONTROL THERMOSTAT, OR 3. DEFROST THERMOSTAT?
Answer Ram, The most common issue is most likely a defective defrost timer WR9X483, it's also the least intrusive, and inexpensive. You'll be able to test or replace the timer and temperature control, since they are mounted side by side in the control console. It could be anyone of these components, or others(compressor, start device,)but you may want to start at the timer. Thanks
