GSS23KGSBCC GE Refrigerator not freezing
« on: August 08, 2012, 07:49:41 AM »

The freezer has stopped freezing. It's cold, but even on the highest setting, things are thawing out. There was a slight accumulation of frost on the back wall. I completely cleaned it out and removed the frost and vacuumed the very dirty stuff in the back hoping that was the issue, but after running all night, it is still not freezing, although the frost is back. Any help would be appreciated! Model GSS23KGSBCC

Look behind panel in freezer, if it's frosted just remove frost buildup with hair dryer. Check your heater at bottom of coil. Check with ohm meter. This is the most common problem

Assuming this is a defrost issue, removing frost buildup will allow unit to work a few days until you get your part in.

How many ohms should the heater have when I check it?
