Sensor/Thermostat. I have a defrost failure. I defrosted Evap coils and replaced Defrost thermostat p# WR50X10065 after testing heater with a meter. Two weeks later Evap fan running constantly, Evap frosted up again. Damper to Fresh Food Side was open but no airflow.There are three sensors p#WR55X10025. (FF side) controls the damper,(Freezer lower) controls temp / compressor, (upper on evap) controls defrost on/off? Is the Defrost T-stat p# WR50X10065 a safety overtemp for a runaway heater and only opens @ 140*deg? I jumped between line and def on the plug (unplugged from the board) and heater came on. After defrosting again and running the refer for about 1/2 hour, I checked sensors (unplugged from the board) pin 2/5 13.21K, 3/5 20.4k and 4/5 was 1.4k. So it sounds like the sensor at the top of the evap is bad and not the board. Does my understanding seem correct? Thanks.

Fresh food side not cooling. Freezer is fine. Tested and replaced sensor temperature gauge in fresh food side. Did not fix the problem. What should we test or do next?

Frig wasn't cooling so after removing cover in freezer I found coils all covered in frost. Is this a defrost thermostat issue? My fan is working, and when I recently defrosted frig in a cleaning, frig was cold for about a week. I'm trying to decide which part to replace first, the defrost thermostat, defrost heater or the defrost timer. Thanks for your help, Patty

Ice forms in the freezer box and freezes the crusher/cube solenoid It seems that ice forms in the back of the freezer cabinet and is all over the back of the box after a bit. It also freezes the solenoid plunger for the crushed/cubed ice device. Thus the ice crusher when it works only dispenses crushed ice. Not sure why this ice forms, but it causes a mess. Also, the ice in the ice storage tray refreezes in big chunks and thus does not dispense ice. In addition we have replaced all of the temperature sensors in the refrigerator and replaced the motherboard for the refrigerator. What causes this? Thanks,

I recently asked a question about the defrost thermostat for this GE freezer. I tested a new one before installing it and it would only open when it reached a very high temperature. Since I'm accustomed to similar thermostats opening around 55 F, I thought it was defective. I couild not find the specifications for the replacement thermostat anywhere. I pulled out the old one and found the labeling on it. To my surprise, it was marked 140 F. I see a lot of these GE fridges with defrost problem the same as mine (freezer works fine, but defrost cycle seems to run long and melt the ice....ice cubes are always frozen into a large block). So....here's my question. Is this just poorly designed? would a lower temp thermostat fix this problem? BTW, I've also tested the thermistors; they appear to be good (18K ohm cold with steady decrease to below 3 K ohm when warmed). I hate to spend $150 for a new control board because, based on other customers' experiences I don't have much faith that it will fix the problem. This is driving me crazy. Please help!

I bought a replacement defrost thermostat (WR50X10065) for my GE refrigerator. I tested it before ripping my fridge apart, and the thermostat read less than 1 ohm cold or warm. I assumed that it was bad, so I ordered another one. The next one tested the same way. Being quite perplexed, I heated the thermostat more than using a cup of hot water (my first test method). This time I used a heat gun and the thermostat eventually opened. It was so hot that I could barely hold it. I can't find any specifications for this particular thermostat online, but I wouldn't think it should require THAT much heat to open. Exactly how much heat should it take to open this thermostat??
