The defrost systems is:
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

on all ge electronic models produced since 2000 the main power lead to the main board can be jumped to test either defrost or compressor operation.to do this unplug the unit and locate the 3 wire plug (usually blue in color) .unplug the harness from the board and create a jumper wire to by pass the board.the terminals on the board will be identified as line,compressor and heater.to put unit in defrost install jumper between line and htr or def .this will ck the defrost sys.once unit is plugged in with jumper in place the heater will come on.if the heater does not come on look for a defective heater or defrost t/stat.hope this helps.

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
