I have a GE frig model GSS22WGPA WW. I opened the freezer back panel and removed the frozen ice on the coils. I am trying to order the heater coil. The frig has one heater but not sure if it's the 9 inch or 12 inch?

2 Questions... First, I had been having issues with the refrigerator not cooling and the freezer cooling just fine. After pulling the rear panel, I found the evaporator coils totally covered in ice. I am assuming that the heater is faulty. Is this a correct assumption? Secondly, I have had a non functioning ice maker since last summer when we were without power after severe storms whereas I had the unit connected to my 6500 watt generator and it (generator) had a surge and the maker is no longer working. I have looked at the mother board and notice one of the round electronic gadgets has the end blown out of it. I am assuming that I also need a mother board ??

Hi, my GE fridge's defrost heater burned out (frost on the back of freezer, the old heater failed the ohm meter continuity test). I had the single tube design, the blue wire on the left is not long enough to reach the connector on the right side of the replacement double tube design WR51X10101. I'm wondering, instead of going through splicing wires and that trouble, because the pink wire on the right of the evaporator is actually long enough to reach the connector on the left side of the heater, could I just simply unplug and move the yellow jumper to the right side of the heater, then I can connector both the blue & pink wires on the left side.

I have completed the installation of the heater and ready to replace the cover, can I proceed with Ice still on the coils or should I use a hair dryer on the existing ice?

Hello, Issue with my refrig: Frost on back of Freezer. No air (cool or otherwise) really coming through to the food side unless Freezer is really cold, but then only makes the Frost thicker. Is it the motherboard or the heater or the thermostat that I should replace?
