I noticed that the food in freezer was getting soft and water was dripping which was probably from the ice maker. Emptied both freezer and refrigerator, unplugged overnight with the doors open to thaw. Plugged in the next day. Appeared to work for about a week when I noticed that food was getting soft again.There is frost building up on the back wall of the freezer. Freezer fan is running, but not putting out any cold air. Refrigerator is barely cold. I know it works in conjunction with the freezer. Not sure that my freezer has a defrost timer and after reading possible part options, not sure what part I actually need.

It started when both the freezer side and the frige side were found to be not cold. It was then found that behind the wall of the freezer was a solid mass of frost/ice. Manually defrosted by blowing warn air at it. Plug back and the refrigerator worked good for a week then had to repeat the same process. Then found the defrost heater had no continuity. The defrost thermostat had no continuity whether at room temperature or be in icy water for minutes. Ordered for both to replace, and now the thermostat arrived. But it has continuity even at room temperature. Is that normal? My understanding is: when the coils are cold, the thermostat closes the circuit (that's why the thermostat needs to be put in icy cold water when testing continuity), causing heater to be on to defrost. When the coils are completely defrosted, even the thermostat at the top senses the warm temperature, therefore it opens the circuit and heater is turned off. I am therefore doubtful to see the new thermostat showing 0 resistance on a multimeter at room temperature around 76 degrees. Is my understanding correct? The new thermostat is in a plastic bag with GE logo. The model number "WR50X10068" is printed on the plastic bag, but not on the metal of the thermostat itself. Instead, the print on the metal are: T-0-0 37TV31 31659 L140-30F 197D5744P002 J1311 Should I use the new thermostat?

I have a french door refrigerator with a bottom freezer. The ice in the Ice Maker Bin melts into a solid mass each night. I can empty it out and it makes ice all day but by the next morning its again frozen into a block.

My water line in my dispenser is freezing up. Ice maker/dispenser is fine. What part do I need? Your parts store is telling me AP4318572 will work. That is the same part as WR49X10173, correct? Both of those say they are not compatible with my model but the parts store says it is. I'm confused!
