Sounds like a switch issue. Suggest obtain a volt/ohm meter and test the switches and circuits for shorts.
Be careful when working with electricity.

one of 2 things can be wrong,#1) if theres a heavy frost buildup on the rear inside wall of the freezer compartment then its a defrost issue,which will block air flow to the refrigerator side,take off back panel and test defrost heater and thermostat both on evaporator coil for continuity,thermostat has to be below 32 degrees to test good,most of the time its the hearter on G.E.. #2)if no frost buildup,then check the damper vent door between the freezer and refrigerator compartments and make sure its not stuck or broken shut and can no longer open and close to keep temperatures in refrigerator cold

Hi!!

Let's try this:

Check temp. settings the freezer knob controls thermostat settings, set it about one third of the scale.

The fridge knob, (set it half way) controls a door actuator that lets cold air blown by the little fan in freezer go from evaporator (the one that gets iced up) to the fridge, so, the little fan in freezer is the one in charge of making your fridge work. CHECK FAN, it should come on when you open freezer door for a couple of minutes, it must sound strong, and if you put your hand in front of one of the fridge's air vents you should feel cold air coming out, if no or weak breeze comes out, check passages for obstrucion, if none, replace motor, (about 20 at your hardware store)

I assume your mechanic already checked thermostat and defrost operation, because, if your timer is right, the defrost mechanism will de-ice the evaporator about four times a day.

Check your drain hose for blockage.

Let me know how it worked out, good luck.

the defrost thermostat should be clamped onto the evap coils..defrost timer should be under fridge. If this is a newer model, it might have an ecm ( comp control) on top of the compressor..

Hi, Ifwhat you are getting is frost, remove the rear panel again and locate the defrost heater. There will be two wires going to it and it is fastened to the bottom of the evaporator coil.Remove the two phillips screws holding the heater and pull it out to remove the wires. Check the element for continuity. If there is no continuity on the element, replace it. If the element shows ok, locate the bi-metal switch that is fastened at the top of the evaporator coil. Test it and make sure it has continuity. NOTE: the bi-metal must be tested while it is cold.
The most common problem with this model is the defrost heater.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

if the compressor is shaped like a coffee can and not like a cantalope then yes..you probably just got took. I had to replace many "rotary" compressors on GE/Hotpoint refrigerators built in 87-88. I hope i'm wrong. good luck :)

Unplug the fridge and pull away from wall. There is a panel on back that has a control board. Look on both sides for burn marks or loose welds. Also remove bottom paper panel on back and lets see if compressor is running. Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

DEFROST TIMER IS STUCK IN THE ON POSITION CALL LOCAL REPAIR SERVICE

GE Refrigerators | Answered on Dec 03, 2019


The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. The plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard might have unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. Just reconnect it and that should reset the display.

I had the same problem. The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. What had happened in my case is the plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard had become unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge, and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. I just reconnected it and that reset the display. Glad for it too, I thought I needed a new $130 motherboard! Hope this helped!
