Default GSH25JFXB Electronic Damper?
Model Number: GSH25JFXB   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Does the GE GSH25JFXB have electronic dampers? The user manual that came with it mentions them (though I suspect the manual is a superset for all models), as do Technical Service Guides for similar models (I have yet to find one for this specific model, though). However, there is no electronic damper that I can find between the freezer and fridge sections. The lower opening is just that - an opening. The upper one by the light does have a clear plastic damper, but it is free swinging - no electronic control.

What confuses me is where the wires connected to J3 pins 1-4 on the control board go. From everything I can find, these are listed as Damper control wires. However, if there is no damper, why are these installed on my fridge? There are many other wires not installed in the connectors for features not present in this model, so clearly there was some thought given to only installing what was necessary. Having these wires present makes me think they must do something...

I mainly curious at this point, but it might be important as I continue to debug a nagging defrost problem.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Michael

Remove the 3 pin power connector from the motherboard and insert a wire jumper between the mating pins on the connector to the pins marked line and def. If you get defrost action, you probably have a bad motherboard. If no defrost, you have a bad defrost terminator, or heater.

Thanks for the reply. However, I do know that the defrost action is working, just too well. See my other post:
GSH25JFXB Pre-Chill

My question here was mainly one of curiosity, whether this specific model had an electronic damper somewhere and/or what the wires connected to that port on the control board actually did.

The website link above did not come through (a bunch of asterisks). Can you repost?

Thanks,
