Question about GE Monogram ZICS360NRRH C... Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Glowing light and warm air freezer side

I noticed a dripping noise (similar sound to dropping drops of water on a hot skillet). I looked at where I thought the sound was coming from which is the lower vent in the freezer section. I saw a glowing yellow-orange light and felt heat coming out of the vent. Please help! The temp is set at zero but is ready at 3.

HI thanks for your question. you found your freezer in a defrost cycle, which is normal function.the defrost cycle happens every day every 10 hrs. on for about 20 min. then resumes the cooling cycle. so its normal. thanks the appliance doc, please rate my answer. thanks.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes this is normal..the unit goes into defrost a heating element turns on for about 20 minutes to melt ice off the evaporator which drips onto the heating element and the rest down the drain. Then there is a thermostat that tells the heater to turn off after it reaches about 50 degrees then the heater turns off but the unit will still stay off until some of the heat is gone.Again this is all normal.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

it sounds like ice built up arounnd the fan blade probably from leaving the bottom freezer door open and warm air got in and froze up the air ducts or you have a defrost problem but if you hear a cracking sound it sounds like the heater is coming on but can't melt out all the ice.try this,take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug it,get a hair dryer and blow the hot air at the back wall where the vent holes are and melt out all the ice,when you look into the vent holes and don't see anymore water dripping down you can plug it back in and with your hand feel to see if you can feel the air blowing into the fridge section,if you feel the air then you melted out the ice and if the noise is gone then the evap fan motor is still good,if there's alot of ice and snow on the back wall you should remove the panel and then melt out all the ice with the hair dryer.also if you have another fridge you can unplug the fridge and let it melt out on it's own for like a day

Yes , you are correct . The defrost heater is in a glass tube , which protects the actual heater coil . The " psh psh " Is the defrost water dripping onto the glass from the evaporator . This is normal .

Defrost element


you can check if the heating element has a metal cover on top. water should not be dropping on the glass directly while it is heating up. that is the cause of heating element blowing up. glowing hot glass cools down by a cold drop of water equals dissaster.

Falling water hits something hot in freezer and causes sizzle sound


the sizzling noise is water hitting the defrost elememt and this is normal - shows the defrost system is working. if water comes on the floor of the freezer, this may be the drain for the defrost water is blocked. remove the freexer back panel and the drain is in the tray where the defrost water is caught. if it is blocked - usually with ice - clear it with hot water and make sure the water drains freely. takes some patience and maybe several attempts
