#255903 GE Defrost

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 25 May 2013 - 11:40 AM

Let's make sure we are on the same page

 

1)Did you test the thermistor from the mainboard using the ice water test?

2) Did you perform the heater-defrost limit test from the mainboard as well?

 

There are only 4 things that can affect this circuit....board, heater, limit and thermistor. If your heater, limit and thermistor tests fine, and considering you are having an issue with your display, you may have another bad board......all subject to connection/wiring problems

 

also and I'm not sure on this but does the instructions for your board require cutting a thermistor wire for bottom mount fridges as found on the wr55x10942 boards?




#255868 GE Defrost

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 25 May 2013 - 08:53 AM

Was the evap thermistor tested/replaced?

 

I do not believe the user interface on your model has anything to do with the defrost function. You definetly needed a new board and fan motor. Why your interface is not allowing diagnostic mode may be altogher a different issue...make sure your connectors on your main board are seated properly. Also check all thermistors but particularly the freezer evap thermistor.

#255731 Very Warm Beer (+Turkey) with very cold Freezer - GE Profile PDS22SBRALSS

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 23 May 2013 - 07:30 PM

Well it's been a year and what was ruled out then can't be ruled out now but I would start  with the fan, as it was your problem last time, then ff thermistors and check damper motor.

 

With regards to error and fault codes, the ge diagnostic aid was designed to do that for many ge models that don't have 5 button displays.  Here is a thread where we talk about using the aid on  a similar model http://appliantology...aid#entry253070

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 21 May 2013 - 08:00 AM


I think it's another testament to my advancing age and my youthful indiscretions with abusing various recreational substances. Glad you had my six on this one, Brother Durham!

Dude, are you kidding me? I was working on that ^@&@# machine for hours, couldn't find any info. I started to panic like a little damsel tied to a railroad track hearing a loud whistle.   And then you did the lone ranger thing that you do and sent me this manual.

 

Later that night,the customers asked me..."who was that head-banded man?" As I stared off in the distance I replied "That my friend, was The Samurai." And then they joined me in staring off in the distance, all of us had awe in our eyes...while staring off in the distance. The End.. Join us next time when our head-banded hero....

 

yeah I know.....gonna cause a topic split again  lol

Awwite, budrow, closest thang I can find fer ya is the minimanual: http://appliantology...tor-minimanual/

Please start a new topic in the Kitchen forum for technical discussions and troubleshooting.



This proves that you have forgotten more about appliances than I will ever hope to know....This fridge is just like "the Bastard." You sent me a full manual, and that manual suggested I buy the diagnostic aid. It's the fridge with the silly LCD touch screen and limited diagnostics....I'll upload it..

see if this works....http://appliantology...psw-lcd-manual/

btw reason I called the fridge similar to this and that continues to haunt me "the bastard" is because it's a tweener model....dual evaps, but no inverter, about 2 fans in the freezer and three in the fridge, LCD touch screen that has sucky diagnostics ...for instance "all fan mode" doesn't turn on all fans...like the ff evap fan..I know, it had me chasing my tail for weeks.




#255401 GE Side by side frig - Freezer too warm -GSS25SGRB

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 21 May 2013 - 07:02 AM

if there is any other button, budget is right, as your fridge would be deemed a 5 button display. To enter diagnostics, after you get the blinkkng 0's, you have to press any button other than temp up or down button. Sometimes pressing all the buttons simultaneously can be aggravating as heck (should have said "hell" cause nuthing can be as aggravating as hell, i suppose.. except maybe trying to put some of these fridges into diagnostic mode).


#255383 GE Profile PFS22SISDSS Stopped Cooling

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 20 May 2013 - 09:32 PM

Could be several things....need to check evap frost pattern to determine if you have a defrost problem and  you need to test the thermistors

#255355 Service manual for GE cooktop Mod.# ZGU365DWBWG

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 20 May 2013 - 05:46 PM

I refuse to let you stump me this time lol you need the JXLP56 conversion kit...pretty much discontinued but sears has it

 

http://www.searspart...JXLP56/0022/364

 

 

and where was this info garnered? Couldn't find a service manual.  But I found a few crumbs left here an there saying the info is usually provided with the stove.  Checked the operators manual..nothing.  Then checked the installation manual.....from page 3

#255352 Samsung Refr. RS275ACBP no ice or water at dispensers

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 20 May 2013 - 05:20 PM

That rental property stuff can wear you out... i had 30 of 'em at one time and only had a small crew..  Some folk say that's why I'm nuts today.




#255345 GE Side by side frig - Freezer too warm -GSS25SGRB

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 20 May 2013 - 04:16 PM

 

 

PS:  Forgot to add that although the GE diagnostics in the service manual show a control panel that is just like my frig's, there is no "hold" button to press to start the diagnostic running.

 

You have the 4 button display and cannot enter diagnostics with that particular interface. You are gonna have to test it the old fashioned way. or get a diagnostic kit
