In Topic: GE Built in ref condensation issues and now temp issues ZISB420DMB

Disconnect and restore power. The reading should be okay unless you have a bad thermistor amplifier or bad connector/connection at the board

Did that, readings were still off .


Check the thermistor amplifier by doing a dc voltage check at the ff thermistor while the connector is attached to the board.

I will do that! I am going out armed with a new board and thermister. I checked the thermister charts and the readings look as if the values are correct... Hmmmm.

Thank you again!! :rocker:

thermistor test results for compartment and especially evap thermistor? 


Frost pattern on evap? 


Come on Bro Doc,  as a tech you have to know these are vital bits of information you (we)  need to diagnose GE's. 

OK Durham, I went back and the wiring schematic to the thermistors are not color coded like the actual wiring. But this is what I got, It looks as if the brown is the common line from all thermisters... It looks like this:


Brown to White: 55.0

Brown to Blue: 44.6

Brown to Red: 12.6

Brown to Black: 12.6


The other interesting part is after I plugged the thermistors back on to the board, The display on the FF section read 138*F !!

Did you rtv the new damper assembly like it calls for? And replaced all the foam pieces it came with.? Like Durham said perform thermistor checks.

Oh yeah, it is completely sealed up. Thermistor check done... values are above.

UPDATE: So I went back to my customer's home today and I watched it agitate... then, as soon as it started draining, I busted out the stopwatch feature on my iPhone...1:30 into drain... OK 30 seconds to go


2:00... still on pump out...


2:30 .... starting to worry a bit  


3:00.... OK now this is getting longer than they said


3:30... I can feel my tears building up in my eyes and my lower lip starting to tremble as I am about to cry ...


EXACTLY 4:00 INTO DRAIN ... It stops, THEN SPINS!!!!!



WHOO HOO!!!... pissed my pants I was so happy.
