It sounds like you have a defrost problem. This will either be the defrost heaters the defrost thermostat or defrost timer. In order to check the heater if you are competent enough you can check that you have resistance across the heater. Alternatively you can rotate the timer (normally in the fridge section abov the thermostat control) around to a defrost cycle (you will normally hear a click) and check to see if the defrost heater kicks in. Please note the cabinet has to be cold in order for the heaters to work. The defrost sensor should also have zero resistance across the terminals when the coil is cold. Please do no attempt the above unless you are practically skilled. A good fridge guy should be able to quickly identify the problem and remedy it. Defrost heaters are generally the first part to fail. Hope this is of some help.

Yeah, same problem. There are two capacitors that seem to be prone to going out. You can replace the main board, or (if you can solder) replace the two capacitors with slightly larger ones (radio shack mdl number 272-1030 works) just remember to bend them away from the heat sink if you go that route.

In this photo you will see location # 801 and 735. Part number for the 801 is=> WR55X10942 and part 735 is=> WR09X10107 Click Here for=> GE/Artica Technical Information and here for a=> Service Manual I will be here to see if the smell and sounds were coming from another location but if for some reason the refrigerator has stopped cooling I believe I am on to the problem. Please rate if correct or if you need assistance and advice on what to do to solve this completely let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
