gss model sxs refrig. defrost problem, Ihave replaced machine control and bimetal ,still shows signs of only partial defrost
have you replaced the single heater with the new double heater that g.e. has finally redisigned? they had alot of problems with the heaters and had to change them to a double heater. the heater would burn out or not get hot enough to defrost completely.the new heater assembly part # XXXXX XXXXX try changing this it should be fine, let me know, Bryan
