SOURCE: ice build up in frezzer

The freezer must have been opened for a long time and than closed without defrosting or it has been filled with huge amount of food that was quite warm (especially if it is in warm room).

You need to turn it off, unplug it, move food to some cold place in the house and wide open the door to defrost and melt away all frost and ice. Make sure to be there to collect water.

When it all melts away, dry it up and turn it on on full power. Wait till it reaches desired temperature and than gradually fill it.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Keeps Running

A fridge normally runns for 16 hours a day, it sounds like it does exactly that. It is doing everything it serpose to. Is there anything else that it is doing? If you can give me any information I will try to help. But it sounds fine so far

SOURCE: frost build-up freezer back wall

Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel and test the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch. The defrost heater is a very common problem with this model. You can check continuity on both the heater and bi-metal to detern which one need replaced. The bi-metal switch needs to be tested while it is could. If both of these parts prove to be ok, you will need to change the mother board.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: GE profile Artica side by side. I am getting a frost build up

Sounds like the dispensor flap is not closing completely , pulling outside air in . Using a flashlight on the outside of the flap , look inside to see if any light is visible . If so , then the ice flap plunger and solenoid will have to be replaced . Also , excessive crushed ice can also cause frosting .

Ge monogram beverage center has ice build up and not cooling


Anytime there is ice buildup it will not cool. Was the door left open? If so that would cause ice buildup. If it wasn't left open and it is a frost free model you have a problem with the defrost circuit. Unplug it and Manually defrost it with items removed by using a hairdryer and towels to absorb water from defrosting Afterwards it will cool again .If the defrost circuit needs service the unit will continue to frost up. Usually in frost free models there is a heater that goes bad.

Usually you will get a sort of whinning/screeching noise from the fans inside the fridge/frezzer when they are not working properly but you can also get that howling noise from the fan which cools the compressor for the fridge/frezzer which is usually found underneath the Unit. All you have to do is find exactly where the noise is coming from and remember unless you have a dog that likes to lock itself in the fridge for a joke then most noises that come from fridge/frezzers are only made from the moving mechanical parts and sometimes leaking refridgerants but not often.

Fridge and Freezer are Warm Ice is still being made


Hi - I just had the same problem on a 48 Monogram 1996 model.
The guys at the factory told my local service center that it was the main logic board ($200 for parts) and they replaced it, but that wasn't it.
It was the evaporator sensor. i don't claim to understand it all, but I think that the sensor is responsible for telling a heating element to turn on and defrost. If it does not do it's job, then frost builds up (You can feel the frost if you feel up in the freezer, up hight and in the front)) The frost keeps the cold air from getting to the fridge. Eventually the logic unit will freak out because ti is trying to keep the fridge cold, but the fridge send back that it is hot.
The repair guy may not want to replace the sensor because it is like an hour and half to get back in there. And it is a tight fit.

FROST BUILD UP INSIDE THE FREEZER AND LOW FREEZING


You'll need to ohm the defrost heater, and inspect the board, If the heater is good, check the board for burn spots on the back. If all this checks the problem will be the thermistors on the upper lower frezzer. The easyist one to veiw is the bottom it white and slides into a whitd plastic holder Very very short wires you'll have to clip them close to bulb. We can send you these parts 704-819-6557 same day shipping.

Refridge


Sounds like the icemaker mold is leaking so the whole icemaker should be replaced.  Leaking water will get on the icemaker heater and cause condensation which then freezes and makes frost.
