    Default GE Fridge Freezing Up/Ice Maker & Water Dispenser Not Working

    Model Number: GSH22JSTASS
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have a GE side by side refrigerator that has multiple problems. About a year or so ago all of sudden the ice maker and water dispenser suddenly stopped working. Also the coils in the back of the freezer are freezing up. After letting them defrost, they freeze up again in about a week or so. Do you think these two problems are connected or two different problems that need to be fixed? I would appreciate any help you can give.

    Also, this is our second GE appliance to have a problem and both of them are only 4 years old. Any recommendations on a reliable brand for future purchases?

    Yes, it sounds like either a bad motherboard or evaporator thermistor.

    First test the thermistor, should be about 16.3 K ohms. Shawn has a good page that shows you how here: Testing A Refrigerator Thermistor On A GE Refrigerator

    A good brand I recommend is Whirlpool.
