I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator. The heater was good but still froze up. I replace the thermostat and the freezer worked fine a day or two. Now the freezer is not freezing but is still putting out cold air.

Hello, we’re having a problem with our nine year old GE Profile refrigerator. We recently noticed the digital temperature readings were warmer than they should be for both the refrigerator and the freezer. We vacuumed behind the fridge removing quite a bit of accumulated dust and the problem appeared to be solved. About a week later the temperatures were too high again, so we emptied everything out and unplugged it overnight. We plugged it back in the next morning and left it empty. After 24 hours the freezer was down to 12 and the fridge down to 39 but would not go any lower even after 6 more hours. The temps should drop to 0 and 37. We kept the door shut almost continually during our testing period. Internet research lead us to testing the continuity of the defrost thermostat. Our meter showed it had continuity when it was warm, which apparently it should only have continuity when it is cold. We ordered a new one and the new one ended up giving us the same continuity reading. We now don’t know if the old defrost thermostat is actually defective or if we have misdiagnosed our issue. Also, we think the defrost heater is working okay because it has continuity. Please advise, thank you!

Hello, I have had an issue with the freezer icing up behind the back panel. I have pulled everything out and thawed it out with a blowdryer 3 times now. From what I can tell, the popular opinion is to consider the thermostat? or the timer? I have begun to have the same issue with a similar model in my basement: GSS22WGMC WW. Could I be doing something wrong or do both happen to be at that stage of repair? Thanks for any help you can provide.

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?
