Maytag msd2454gr side by side. The evaporator coils freeze up and the fridge gets warm. This happened about a year ago and I thawed it out and everything was fine. It happened again about a week ago so I thawed it out and then it happened again about a week later so I assume there is a problem. The timer is working - it cycles into and out of defrost. The heater is working - it gets hot during defrost. I sprayed compressed air onto the thermostat during defrost when the fridge was at room

Model # GSS20IEMB. I clearly have a defrost issue. I have defrosted the freezer coils behind the back panel once before only to have them frozen again two weeks later. I have done a little research and it appears that this model does not have an individual defrost timer - apparently is is part of the motherboard. So is my best bet to just buy a new defrost heater - and see how it goes or is there something else I should be looking at first. Thanks.


You are coorect that there is no timer in this model. The control board does all of the monitoring for defrost operation. The control board is the last thing I would suspect. However the dfrost heater in this model is the first ... GE Refrigerators

Freezer section is cold but refrigerator section will not cool because of ice build up on evaporator coils in freezer and air can not flow to refrigerator side. I manually defrosted it two weeks ago but frost again built up on coils. I feel I have either a bad defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost limit switch. Which one of these items is usually broken? How do I figure this out? Thanks Peter

We have a Roper side by side, it is only 4 yrs old. Frig side quit cooling, freezer was fine. We took everything out and saw ice build up in freezer behind a panel. We defrosted and placed everything back in, one week later it has did it again. It is iceing up and the freezer works but frig side quits blowing air. How do we determine what's causing this? We have been told element in defrost, or a timer, or a heater blower. How do we know? How do we check?

The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold.

My GE Fridge is icing up in the freezer. I had a GE tech come in and he glanced at it briefly and said it was the defrost heater. I looked online and learned that it could be either the defrost heater, the defrost timer, or the defrost thermostat. How do I know for certain it is the heater, and then how do I replace it if this is the case? I see no online directions on the defrost heater and looks like I could buy one for about $60.


If you can get to the terminals of the heater, check the resistance with the ohmmeter setting of a multi-tester. You should get a reading of perhaps 10-15 (?) ohms if the heater is good. Or remove the heater and connect it to a 110 voltage source d ... Refrigerators

GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out. Looking at forums it says this model does not have a defrost timer, instead has mother board that controls the defrost. I would think that if the mother board was bad it wouldn't heat at all.

Also, the defrost heater is not open, and the defrost timer conta
