Question and Answers

Q:

Part TFX25JPCCWW Ge Refrigerator c series

A:

The defrost heater is part number WR51X443. That part includes the harness and the bi-metal defrost termination thermostat. You can unplug the refrigerator and check the resistance in the two elements of that heater. One should measure 6 ohms and the other 12 ohms. If one or both of the elements is "open" (measures infinite resistance or OL -- open load using the volt/ohm meter), then the heater is bad and will need to be replaced. If the elements measure the correct resistance, you can check for voltage going to the heater. That type of live voltage check is dangerous. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking live voltage. Unplug the refrigerator as soon as live voltage testing is complete. If the bi-metal thermostat is not at operating temperature (around 0 degrees) then you will need to bypass that thermostat to check voltage. Manually advance the defrost timer to the defrost mode to apply voltage to the heater. If you need more help with that test, let us know. 

 

If the defrost heater is getting voltage but won't heat, then you will need to replace that heating element. If the heater is not getting voltage, then you could have a bad defrost timer or a wiring failure. A failed defrost termination bi-metal thermostat will also prevent the heater from working if that thermostat is stuck "open" at operating temperature. If you need more help checking any of these issues, reply with additional details.
