GE Side by side defrosting problem
« on: June 02, 2009, 09:58:13 AM »
A friend called me over and his evap coil was frozen making the fridge section too warm.

I thawed it out with a heat gun and told him he will probably need a board.

I checked the resistance of the heater, and it wasn't "open" but my resistance was way higher than I would have thought, if I recall it was like 17m ohms.

What should a good heater ohm out at?

Is there any way other than just swapping parts that I can use to troubleshoot the motherboard?

I sure hate having to swap parts, not knowing for sure.

I'm assuming the defrost thermostat just tells the board to turn off the defrost.

any help would be appreciated.



$1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50

my side by side keeps defrosting
