GE defrost issues
« on: September 13, 2012, 03:36:34 PM »
Hi, I have a GE refrigerator PSG27SHSBCSS (220v) and a few weeks ago I started to have defrost issues. I checked the defrost heater for continuity and I get 85 ohms, the termistor and the thermostat seems to be OK. Is that ohms reading correct for a 220 v heater or should I replace the heater?

Note (the defrost runs OK when I start it from the temp control panel function 1 4).

I'am going to replace the main board anyway because I was getting the ice in the ice maker melted and re frosted and I read that it's due to a main board problem.

Did the main board fix it?
