Hello,

My 2020 GE French Door Refrigerator Model # GFE28GYNBFS fresh food evaporator keeps icing up which causes the refrigerator to stop cooling.
The freezer seems to be working fine.
The fresh food evaporator fan seems to be working fine
The fresh food defrost thermostat (WR50X10109) has been replaced.
The fresh food defrost heater (WR51X10132) has been replaced.
The refrigerator main control board (WR55X38248) has been replaced.

Does anyone have recommendations and a tech sheet for this model?

Thanks

About the only thing left that you haven't replaced is the evaporator thermistor. Its the white sensor attached to the evaporator.

You can test it but it seems like you did it through process of elimination lol

Lol, I replaced the fresh food evaporator thermistor, now I am at least getting values when I run diagnostic test 94 which was -- -- before. I will keep monitoring to see if the evaporator stops icing over.

Thanks for the help.

There is a tech sheet in every newer appliance when it leaves the factory. On a fridge it can be behind the kick plate (either rolled up inside of it or in a pocket, pouch or envelope under the cabinet) or in an envelope on the rear of the cabinet or in the compressor compartment. On some French-door models (I don't know about GE) it can be rolled up inside one of the top hinge covers.

I did find a PDF copy online.

GE Mini Manual 31-51962


I'm afraid I can not suggest what the problem might be nor how to go about correcting it.
