This GE Bottom Freezer was not cooling in the fresh food section. When I arrived the compressor, evap fan, condenser fan was all running strong. The evaporator was froze over, so I defrosted it and the heater checked out fine, so I put a new limit on and a new thermister, put it all back together and plugged it back in, and nothing worked but the lights. Here are some of my many questions:
1. I was told at one time to always change out the old style thermisters with the black end where the wires go in, is this true because I did put a new thermister on this one.?
2. The defrost limit that I replaced had the symetrical clip that was installed on one of the support fins for the evaporator. I replaced the original with a limit that had the same L140-30F markings as the original, but had the clip that goes on the evaporator direct, so I did that, is that acceptable? or do I need to order the same one and install it on the support fin?
3. How do you get the control panel off the top of the fresh food section? I removed the light cover and two screws, then broke one of three plastic studs and then put the screws back in and left it. What hold that all on and how do you get it removed.
4. When i couldnt get the unit started back up I cleaned up my tools and made a trip to the truck, 20 minutes after I plugged it in the compressor sounded like it was running but nothing else. does it normally take this long to get the unit started again after defrosting?
