Failed Thermistor #5 PSS25MGNAWW

26 October 2011 - 01:58 PM


Looking for a bit of help.

I have a GE model PSS25MGNAWW and I performed the self test and it showed a failed thermistor in the freezer. I got test results on the display as freezer P and on the FF side I had 1,2,3,4 and then O on the freezer which O being failed ff #5. So it went like this P1,2,3,4,O 5 and a couple beeps. Which is a failed #5 thermistor. I replaced the thermistor and re-set the unit and re-tested and same thing O #5. So, I thought I had a bad part so I tried another brand new thermistor and same results. I am stuck and dont know what to do. Can anyone offer any help? The unit seems to be running fine but I hate knowing it is saying something is not right and want to correct the issue if I can.

I tested the brand new and original thermistor in a cup of cold ice water and let it sit for 5 minutes and I got a reading of 15.5 on the multimeter. Is that in the passing/good range? All 3 thermistors (1 original 2 brand new) read this on the multimeter. Leads me to think the original one was not bad but the system said it was.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
