when freezer defrost, ice cubes melt into a solid mass and food
has ice and frost on them. It seems the defroster is getting to warm and then freezing,
Defrost thermostat or defrost timer?
Answer Bill, first check and make sure both the doors are closing and sealing properly, the interior light is going out when the door is closed, and there aren't to many open containers. If all's OK, check or replace the defrost thermostat WR50X10025 it could be "sticking" and causing the heaters to remain on too long.
Why does fridge only cool down to 45 to 50 degrees? Compressor does not get hot.
Answer Hello Harvey. Look and see if there is a frost pattern on the evaporator coils. If not, then there is a sealed system issue and you will need an HVAC tech to repair the unit. If there is a good frost pattern, then the condenser fan motor will need to be checked and make sure the condenser coils are clean.
The fridge runs constantly never shuts off!
Answer Hello Andrea. If the temp is correct in the unit, you will need to order and replace the temp control WR9X467 in the unit.
Ice maker is not working and it is all iced up or may be frost I took apart ice maker and deiced it and checked with T and H jumper didnt work. What should I do to make sure that ice maker is dead and also I could not locate defrost timer any help appreciated.
Getting the unit to go into the icemaking mode on this unit is not as easy as putting a jumper between T and H. The first thing that you will want to do is check the emitter board. When you open the freezer door there should be a light that flashes. Making sure that the lever is in the on position, push the flapper on the left side and see if the light stops flashing. If the light continues to flash then the emitter board is faulty and would need to be replaced. The unit also does not have a defrost timer and incorporates a electronic control for the defrost.
Mullion around freezer getting hot. What is wrong?
Answer Hello Howard. Clean the condenser coils and check and see if the condenser fan motor is running or if it needs to be replaced.
My water line to dispense water keeps freezing up and I have to defrost the refrigerator once a week. This happened in the past, I believe GE had someone replace the defroster. Where is the defroster located and is this the problem?
Answer Hello Cindy,
The first thing you should try is setting the freezer temperature setting to one number COLDER. This will increase air flow inside the unit and prevent the cold air from settling to the bottom and freezing items that shouldn't freeze. If this doesn't correct the issue, you will need to order service kit number WR49X10173. This is a water line heater designed to prevent the water line from freezing.
Where is the defrost timer located in the GE Adora fridge?
This unit does not have a defrost timer. The defrost control is part of the main control board WR55X10942 for your unit. If you are having a defrost issue you will want to check the defrost thermostat WR50X10068 to make sure that it is not open. Check the defrost heater WR51X10042 to make sure that it has continuity. Check the defrost thermistor WR55X10025 resistance. The resistance of the thermistor at 0 degrees should be 42.2K ohms of resistance, at 37 degrees would be 14.4K ohms and 77 degrees would be 10 k ohms. If out of range then it would need to be replaced. If this checks ok and the thermostat and heater have continuity then the control board would need to be replaced.
