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 ??

I need a heater for my freezer. However, the plug at the end of the blue wire is fried. How do I replace the plug? You told someone else to get a 1/8th inch female spade plug. Is that any spade plug or does it need to match the plug on the heater side?

Hi, we've purchased the Defrost Heater Assembly and Thermostat. We cannot find the blue wire to replace it. The wire and connector look to be burned. Do you know where I can find a part #? If not how could I make a replacement for example what guage wire and the sizing for the connector?

Six weeks ago garage Freezer was not freezing and refrigerator was getting warm. Opened Freezer door. Cover Panel covered with ice. Unplugged refrigerator. Removed food, shelves, bottom drawer, light cover and light. Scraped ice off of cover panel and removed it. Found coils covered with ice. Melted ice off coils with hair dryer, and wiped down inside of freezer. Once dry put everything back together. Everything worked very well for 6 weeks and then the freezer froze up again. Appears I need a defrost heater. Perhaps I should get a Defrost Limiter Thermostat, too? Your video is clear so repair doesn't look that difficult. Two questions: Garage refrigerator is 12 years old. Appears to be running well but it begs the question: at what point should a Fridge be replaced? I would just as soon keep it going but don't want to waste money. That said, if this repair doesn't sound like the precursor to a bigger problem what are the part numbers for the Defrost Heater and the Defrost Limiter Thermostat for this model? Thanks

Freezer is holding temp but the ref is not holding the temp on the top half of the ref section and behind the the bottom drawer is totally iced over. Is this a faulty heater that is in the freezer section? Will a new heater solve the problem? I have not looked at the coils & heater section of the freezer yet.

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?
