My refrigerator is a MOD.#HSS25GFPDWW freser is frosen ,Do I need the Heater coil or th defrost thermostat?
If the evaporator coils are impacted with ice you will want to do a continuity test on the defrost heater and thermostat. If either does not have continuity then it will need to be replaced. If both check ok then you will want to check the resistance of the defrost thermistor. If the thermistor checks ok then you would need a main control board. If the thermistor does not have proper reading then replace the thermistor. The thermistor resistance reading should be 42.5K ohm at 0 degrees.
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
I have a GE frig model GSS22SGPASS.PLease advice me the right model# for DEFROST HEATER KIT?
Answer Hello Jason. Based on the model number you provided, WR51X10101 is the correct defrost heater for the unit.
How do you remove the evaporator coils to install a new heater & bracket assembly? We already replaced the thermostat and seem to be working ok.
Answer Hello Mark,
You do not, for any reason, remove the evaporator coils. If you do the freon will escape and the unit will not cool. Simply remove the back wall of the freezer compartment and there will be two screws at each heating element to remove it. The wires are routed down each side of the coils and the harness plugs in at the top.
