Default freezer icing problem
Model Number: 162D7734P011   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hello,

Don't currently have model number (Part No. is GE 162D7734P011). It's a GE side-by-side with icemaker about 7 years old in a condo @ Mammoth Lakes. I brought the owners manual home with me, but all it gave me was the above part number. Problem is: last 2 times I've been up there, I've had to defrost the coils with a hair dryer. I understand the solution is to replace either/all the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. My question is how to replace these elements. With the freezer compartment panel off, are these items readily indentifiable/available for replacement, or do I have to look in a different location? Sure appreciate any help/advice you could give. Thanks much,

Bill Salmond (Tucson, Az.)

bad model number...the heaters and tstat are behind that freezer panel, but i'm not sure where the timer is on this box. i think it's in the refrig section where the controls are at the top.

hope this helps...

Default Freezer Icing Problem

Thanks for your response. Went back to my condo at Mammoth last W/E and had to de-ice it again with a hair dryer. GE Model number is TFX22-PRDAWW. Hope this helps to ID it more correctly. Looked like the only heater element was a 6" horizontal bar at the bottom of the freezer coil ass'y. There also was a 1" dia (small hockey-puck-type) element clipped on at the top of the freezer coil ass'y--is this the thermister?? Could not locate anything in either the freezer compartment or behind the refrig. control panel that looked like a defrost timer clock. Any further comments/advice would sure be appreciated. Thanks much, Bill S.

Hi Bill,

The defrost timer is located in the fresh food compartment (#257 on the break down diagram).

The defrost heater and the defrost thermostat are located behind the rear panel in the freezer (d/heater - #230 on the break down diagram) and d/thermostat - #240 on the break down diagram).

You can find the complete troubleshooting instructions in one of previous posts: Freezer is fine, refrigerator is too warm.

- The part number for the defrost timer is AP2061695

- The part number for the defrost heater assembly (including the defrost thermostat) is AP2071523

- The part number for the defrost thermostat is AP2071262

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE refrigerator Model TFX22PRDAWW

Gene.
