which thermostat did you replace? this one, ? Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=or did you replace the sensor, ? Part 914093 the sensor is the problem, this is located staped on top of of the evaporator coils in the freezer. these are cheap around $14.00 . this should take care of your icing up problem, regards, Bryan

I've ordered the part. Does this process stay open until I replace to see if it fixes the problem (meaning I don't accept until I replace the part?)


This is my first time using this process.

you can accept and still come back to ask more questions if needed but this part will take care of the problem. G.E. has recommened that we replace these when theres a frost up issue after replacing the board or heater, this sensor shuts the compressor off when the freezer is at the proper temerature but they have been failing and the compressor keeps running thus freezing up the coils, thanks Bryan
