The freezer of my GE side-by-side fridge seems to go into defrost mode and food & packages form ice crystals as if beginning to thaw and then refreezing.
It sounds like the defrost timer may be sticking during the defrost or the fan operating during the defrost. This would be caused by a faulty defrost timer WR9X489.
Side-by-side R/F - Freezer section working normal, all fans normal/coils clean. Refrigerator side sitting at 60 F.????
You will want to check the damper door to make sure that it is open. It sounds like the damper WR9X522 is not opening and would need to be replaced.
My freezer forms ice and snow under the ice maker bucket and on back of freezer wall.
Which part(s) do I need and where are the parts located?
You will want to check to make sure that the dispenser ice door is closing all the way. If the door is not closing all the way then it will cause the unit to form frost under the ice bin and cause excess frost on the rear wall of unit.
I have a GE side by side refridgerater, model# tfx20jrbkww. I have to replace the defrost timer. Where would the temp control be located in refrigerator? Thanks, Simon
Answer Hello Simon, the defrost timer WR9X489 and the temperature control WR9X499 are both located in the upper section of the refrigerator compartment. The temperature control is behind the control knob. Hope this helps!
I have ge side by side refridgerater freezer ice building up inside back wall.
Answer Hello Simon,
You will want to check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If either of these parts do not have continuity then they would need to be replaced. If both check ok then you would need to replace the defrost timer. 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
