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 ??

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?

Thank you for your response. The testing link states I should test when it's cold but do I need to unplug it? And where do I put the leads to test it, one on each side? Thank you for your help. My refrigerator and freezer are both not cooling enough. It's about 60* in the refrig and 40* in the freezer. I unplugged the unit, let it defrost, flushed out the drain in the freezer and plugged it back in. It worked great for about a week and then the frost in the freezer built up again and it doesn't cool again. Please let me what part you think I should replace or it is time for a new unit? This one is about 14-15 years old. Thank you for your help. Kim for Model Number ge refrigerator TFX26ZPDA WW side by side ANSWER Hello Kim. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
