frig side warm, freezer ok
Watched the videos then found a schematic which showed the defroster, temp sensor and timer all in series. Checked continuity of defroster per the video ( open) so decided to change all to make sure. Ordered the parts for overnight delivery. Arrived the next morning. When finished with replacement I plugged in the cord and...nothing!!! Lights worked but nothing else. Had to rotate the exposed timer screw then the evaporator fan started to run again...turned out the timer was in the defrost cycle! Took a full 24 hours to get really cold on the frig side.

Warm fresh food side, 4 days later freezer was warming up.
I first replaced the defrost timer(experience from another refridgerator), that did not fix it, so I ordered the defrost heater and T-stat(the price was cheap enough) the butt splicing was for the T-stat. The reason for the 1 hour time frame was because the freezer coils in the back were froze over and It needs to be completely defrosted, I took a heat gun to the coils to melt the ice, put on the new parts, the unit works like a charm. An appliance Company would have charged me $280.00-$350.00 for the repair, I paid %125.00 plus shipping costs....The wife thinks I'm a miracle worker...:)

Refrigerator and freezer were not cooling.
Repair was simple. I wish every appliance I have was this easy to repair. GE has Whirlpool beat hands down!Just watch the video supplied online it is as simple as that.
