Verify the compressor is running,amp draw is OK,the liquid line is hot to the touch,the condenser fan motor is running and the evaporator fan motor is running.

Is it possible that the board assembly encoder in the GE Side-by-Side Refrigerator caused the problem not to freeze properly on the freezer side? This is because one day it is freezing and the next day, it seems like it is on defrost for a longer period of time. What could be the problem?

Thanks,

DaveTech

Go to page 54 in the manual posted by JW to get the ohm resistance values.
Use your meter set for ohms to test each thermistor. Especially the evaporator thermistor.
Also do the Diagnostic test in the manual.
