The refrigerator door (side by side) was left open for 17 hours. After closing door and checking temp, it read 94 degrees. After running for several hours the refrigerator side read 63 (coldest) and the freezer side read 22 (coldest). Thinking the coil had froze up, I unplugged for a 2 hours and plugged back in, same temp results. Appliance repair man came out and said it needed freon, but recommended buying new unit, once there is a leak, nothing you can do. Odd that is was working fine prior to this. After visiting your site it sounds like it might be a Defrost Heater first, then some other options. Am I on the right track? Could it have burned out the Defrost Heater or is it something major like the Main Control Board? Thank you for your help and your wonderful website. Stephen

Hey Guys, I have a GE model TFX26KRDAWW Fridge/freezer, and just bought a Wr51x10055. After it was installed EVERYTHING was GREAT, but now I'm having the same trouble, it's only been about two weeks. My QUESTION is what else could be wrong, could it be the new heater? (the old heater was bad also) Could it be the sensor??? Or something else?? I don't want to replace the entire fridge. Once I replaced the heater, I changed all my settings back to normal, But not I have to set them to the coldest just to get the compressor to kick on again. Help I'm confused! Thanks, you guys STILL rock!

Freezer evaporator keeps building with ice not allowing the refrigerator to cool. I've replaced the defrost sensor twice. Everything works fine for about 2 months then the same thing happens. Could it be the heater?

I Have a GE TFX30PP performance profile and there is a defrost build up behind the freezer panel. I had someone look at it but they told me it was a "defrost sensor" that was causing build up and not keeping fridge part cool. He was charging me way too much and wanted to know what "sensor" he was talking about... Was it the deforest heater and bracket assembly or the defrost thermostat or both? Need help and thanks a lot!

The heater assembly AP3884317 is burned out. Also the male connectors that attach to it are fried also. I need the harness assembly for the heater. Do you have that available?. I've seen heater assemblies on other heaters that include the harness but cannot find the harness assembly for this particular part. Thanks, Lee

Having defrost issue with GE refrigerator. Fresh food side not cooling. Defrost heating element tests at 22 ohms though the glass is discolored. How do I test continuity and resistance in the thermostat and freezer side thermistors? How do I disconnect them without ruining them? Does it matter what temperature I test them at? If so, is that fahrenheit or celsius? Suggestions on how to get them to a set temperature for a DIY'er at home would be appreciated.

Greetings. I have this refrig in the garage. It worked fine in the garage until this year, then the refrig side made everything extremely cold (10-20 degrees) even though I had the temp set at 37 degrees. Would it make sense to add the optional heater to see if it will maintain the temp set on the controls in the refrig? If so, can you tell me the appropriate part #? Thank you.
