Along with the tech sheet for your refrigerator which, by the way, is located in your refrigerator... unless it's been stolen by some slimeball, you'll find two instruments to be most expedient for your repair efforts:
1. A simple multimeter
2. Your brain... sans suds.

Def T-Stat raddles if shaking. Was wondering what caused the heater to burn up on two yr old refrigerator. If the t-stat does not open to turn off heater until 140 degrees what exactly monitors and cycles the heater. I am assuming that the heater does not actually operate at the higher temp of 140 degrees. I am also assuming it's the thermister or a sensor in the freezer compartment....or is it controlled by something else? These newer GE frig are beating me up. Thanks for the feedback. Mike
Replace the bad defrost heater. Define " rattling t'stat"

I've seen that 140 degree figure twice recently in this forum. The defrost t-stat opens at 50 or 60 degrees. Where are you getting that number from?
Why did it only last two years? It's the quality of the product. GE has been making garbage for over 10 years now.
You'll need the service manual if you're gonna run calls on the newer GE refrigerators.
