I am working on a newer GE fridge that is beautiful but I am not that experienced with these designs. I want to make sure I have it right.

The fridge is cooling well. The middle drawer cools well. The lower freezer seems to be frosting over. I have added some pictures. The evap is covered with frost and seems to have an even frost pattern. The back side of the door had frost (which had melted by the time I took a picture).

I am wondering if I have a thermister issue which I think is on the far right side of the upper portion of the evap. The seal around the freezer seems to be healthy. I can't imagine I have a board issue because it is cooling well everywhere else. I would love any input you guys have.

Here's the evaporator thermistor for your model:

I can't locate the tech. data sheet on this model to tell you what ohms it should read while frosty.

On the older GE models it was always 16.3k ohms while frosty, which would be normal.

Installed a new thermister yesterday in the lower cooler. Looks like there are actually two though! Testing it through the weekend. Seems to be doing better today though. :)

Yes, one should be the evaporator thermistor that controls the defrost cycle, and the other one should be the temperature control thermistor that monitors the freezer temperature.

The one that clips to the evaporator coil is the evaporator thermistor.:)

Yes, keep us posted.
