Usually, a wiring diagram is slapped on the rear but it may have been missed during assembly.

Testimonial: "In my internet searching someone stated that the wiring diagram was behind the grill below the door. I found it there taped to the bottom of the fridge. It proves to be very helpful."

SOURCE: wiring diagrame for hotpoint gas dryer

E-Mail me and I will send you a copy of my Schematic. It's 2 pics, but they are pretty clear and should help you. I came to the site wher I saw your post looking for a pic of an exploded view of our dryer. Trying to open it to fix the glide bushing. Started makin metal to metal noises lately, so I am assuming it's like a nylon glider for the drum?

SOURCE: GE GSL22JFPH BS refrigerator, coils icing up

I'm in the process of fixing the same problem on a GSS22JEPDWW right now. There are several parts in the defrost circuit that I can tell:
1) Defrost Heater
2) DefrostThermostat
3) Temp Sensor (Thermistor)
4) Main Control Board
I've replaced the Defrost Heater (remove back panel of freezer section - it's a stainless steel bracket that has a glass bulb in it) and it still doesn't work. The main control card provides power to the heater 4 times every 24 hrs for 25 minutes or so to defrost the evaporator coils. If all items are working, you'll see water in the drip catch at the bottom inside of the freezer compartment. Better yet, pull the refer away from the wall for 24 hrs and check if water is gathering below the plastic drain on the right rear of the refer in the pan. The water drips into a pan and the fan for the condensor coil evaporates it. Go to the website and look in the service section to find the parts diagram for your refer. You can then get a part number to buy the parts you need from a local parts store or the Internet.
I just bought the thermostat a few minutes ago and will try that next. Heater was $37, thermostat was $15. Sensor is about $20 and the control card is $140 (you can find on line for $95). I'm going down that path. If none of this works, it'll be in the dump in a week.
I've learned on-line GE refers are bad news. The control cards can fail repeartedly, althoough mine has worked for over 4 years. But, I won't ever buy another one since refers should last at least 15 years in my book. After $200, it doesn't pay to throw more good money after bad. I'll keep you posted on my results.

Most wiring diagrams are located inside the control panel area

you have a computer board in the back of the machine part number WR55X10942 everything runs through this board.look at this diagram,unplug the machine,remove everything out of the freezer and remove the back inside wall of the freezer,then remove the computer board cover,you'll see like a grey or bluesh looking connector with three pins,this is your defrost,the pin on the left is for the compressor,i unplug the connector,get two pieces of wire,stick them into the grey connector,one in middle and the other in the right side then with aligator clips clip them to the middle and right side post,plug it back in this way the compressor doesn't run,now check to see if the heater comes on,if it doesn't read out the heater with a meter,also if the heater doesn't come on common problem is a bad t-stat,you can cut the two wires going to the t-stat and connect them bypassing the t-stat,plug it back in if the heater comes on then you have a bad t-stat,if it doesn't then you have a bad computer board and change the more thing,there's a sensor on the top of the coil,it looks like a white bullet,if it has a black ring around it where the wires come out of it change it,the new sensor is all white,part number wr55x10025 and the t-stat is WR50X10068 go here to see parts
hope this helps,heater part number WR51X10055,if the heater looks all black inside the glass but reads good with meater change it out it's on it's way out if discolored

Refrigerator Freezer has excessive frosting and the Refrigerator food/vegetable area does not cool. Is this a Defrost heater or Defrost timer problem?

very possible. That is what should be checked first. Sometimes They can get overloaded with ice and not clear it all in one defrost. Try un-plugging the unit for a couple of hours and let the ice completely clear. If it does it again in a short amount of time then the heater or the timer is most likely the cause. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hotpoint CTX21DA defrost heater not working

Heater coil can be checked with a continuity meter, just be sure to unplug the unit first. Before you do anything, locate the defrost timer which is under the control panel in the fridge at the top in the back. There is a little white plastic plug cover a small hole, remove that and you will see the manual advance device. You can only turn it one way due to its design, so using a flat bladed screwdriver that fits the device turn it slowly until you hear a click. then listen in the freezer for sizzling noises as the heater warms up. If you hear the noise you will need to replace the defrost timer, part is available on line. If it doesn't activate the timer then check the continuity on the heater element and the defrost thermostat. (You will have to cut the wires on the thermostat to accomplish this) and check it for continuity. The thermostat needs to be frozen to read properly otherwise it will appear to be open so leave it in a freezer for a bit then check it out. all the parts are available online, just google for refrigerator parts and look for your model.

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.
