In Topic: GE Select SSL27RGRCBS Defrost Problem

20 June 2013 - 11:15 AM

If it can't read the freezer temperature it may be running constantly and the coils getting heavily frosted. Check the thermistor in ice water for 16k ohms from the board. Also check both wires to ground, it may be shorted. It the thermistor checks good, you probably have a bad control.

Thanks, I'll try checking with ice water to see if it is 16K ohms.




I believe that model has only (4) Thermistors,

(2) in the Freezer and (2) in the Fridge

and the test numbers are not correct...

ignore test # 5

What is the order for the thermistors on the self diagnosis then?  According to other info I have seen it will show 0 for thermistor #3 if there is not a turbo cool  thermistor and my model does have the turbo cool option.




Also, the Thermistor test may only show "shorted" or "open" Thermistors.


Do you have the "newer" style ?





It does have the "newer" style thermistors and thanks for the link to proper replacement.




In Topic: FLoaties in washing machine after agitator starts

I will take it apart tonight and try scrubbing it as you suggested. 

I think the new more concentrated soaps may be the problem as to the too much detergent.  We have to rinse a couple times to get the cloths free of suds.  Strange thing though, there is not a foul odor.  Are liquid soaps better or worse than the powder soaps are for rinsing clean?

It also seemed like the water may have been going out, but not the scrunge that was sucked through the holes in the inner tub.  Unless, there is just that much scrunge that is coming loose all of a sudden.  It seemed to empty in a timely manner.  Where is the "self cleaning" filter located?  As long as i have it apart, I would like to check that.

Thanks for the help!
