GE Defrost problem (Defrost heater fuses ?)
GE TBX25PAYGRRW warm fridge,cold freezer (defrost heater fuses ?)
This refrigerator has the classic symptoms of defrost circuit problems in the top sticky thread here .Back to the problem with my GETBX25PAYGRWW . I have checked the defrost thermostat (warm and cold ) and defrost heater and both are OK. However, I was not getting power to the terminals of the defrost heater and was puzzled until I found the wiring diagram inside the panel that housed the defrost control ( defrost timer ). After looking at the wiring diagram ,I noticed that the wiring pigtals to the defrost heater for this model are fused so now I guess have to cut them and and check for continuity . If fuses (or fusible links )are blown, I guess it is pretty safe to presume that the problem is limited to defrost heater.
Also, I would like to test the defrost timer ( defrost control) with an ohmmeter a need the specifics for the terminals for this unit - WR09X0520 / AP2061721 .
