    Default GE air duct

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/mode...erm=gss22ufpcw




    Model: gss22ufpcww

    Replaced the df stat not can't for the life of me find where this piece goes. Help!

    Part number wr17x10780 in freezer section. I see where it looks like it goes but it does not seem to connect there. I was looking for slots or someway it might snap in.

    Also on same fridge water collects below the drain hole. Took pics but can't post them

    Not really. Same diagram I thought I posted the link to. I can't see any logical way to attach it where it looks like it goes. Behind the panel then up? Have no idea. And I took i took it out! No idea if it was installed or just lying in the freezer though. Looks like it should be some slots for it to fit in.

    The diagram shows it going where I have the light cover

    I could find anything else for this....but it does look like the slots should fit in to hold it in place.

    Thanks for trying Jeff. I think the one I gave my daughter is very similiar to this one. I know they have similiar water lines and water filter. I will check it out. Maybe I will get lucky and find the same piece or one similiar on it and see where it attaches.

    P.S. When I removed the evaporator panel this time after letting it run I am not sure I didn't see some ice toward the top of the evaporator, so I may be beating a dead horse. The tempts seemed to be right on the money, but I would feel better if it had run more than 24 hours.

    This is the one I told about the frost pattern not going all the way up when I ran it a little with panel removed and outside. It would be my luck it is low on refrigerant ot has a blockage after installing a new df stat.

    Should at least lay the panal in place rather than just leaving it off....it makes testing more like normal operations.

    Everything was in place except for the air duct when I thought I saw ice when I removed the panel. It had ran since the evening before. Temps were good for that short period of time. I had rather run for about a week to make sure it does not freeze up as I think it was doing before I got it according to what I was tols about having to defrost it like once a week. That is why I checked and replaced the df stat. Not the air duct thing. Seems liek the SEars site had it labeled as 'oven diverter' or something like that.

    Checked my daughters. It is a Kenmore and different. Bout ready to scrap this thing. New, I do a little more searching.

    Thanks for your time Jeff.

    The fridge!

    I found two slots that fit the two protrusions above the fr air duct then snapped the bottom ones in to the fr air duct. No go! Freezer does not get cold enough and sweats. I didn't feel good about that location anyway but was willing to take a shot at it. It was covering most of the fr duct slots.

    The diagram shows it it to maybe fit between the fr air duct and the freezerevaporator panel, but I thini that gets in the way of the light cover, which is not shown in the right location either from what I can see. Never experienced this before. Can usually figure how things go back together. May one of those things that make me want to bang my head if I solve it and it is really simple.

    Doggone diagram shows it where the light cover goes looks like to me.

    Wish I knew the importance of it. Evidently it has some to do with air movement. Thing seemed to do fine without it, but there is a reason for it. Maybe have something to do with what I thought was a partial frost pattern although I did have the panel off then.
