GE Refrigerator- Freezer coil ices up and the F/F gets warm

Model# GE GSS22JFPC BB. I've unplugged it several times and let it defrost fully, but it still ruins my food a few days later because the whole fridge gets warm once it ices over. The rear cover has been pulled back in the freezer and I can see the coil which looks like a big block of ice. However, I do hear the fan spinning. I am mechanically inclined and know basic electricity, can you tell me what to test and how to test it?

It is not defrosting obviously. Check heater and defrost limit for continuity. Defrost limit is small round can-looking device; it must be cold to check accurately. If anything shows no continuity then it needs to be replaced. If continuity ok then replace defrost control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

GE 17.2 freezer on top fridge on bottom. Freezer is cold, but fridge is warm. Help!


Is there any frost buildup on the rear panel inside the freezer? If so you have a defrost problem of a bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/ control board. If no frost then you probably have a clogged defrost drain. Remove the rear panel to access drain hole.

Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section.

Check out the coil after defrosting you can get all of the ice out of the coils at the back of the freezer. While letting the ice melt, do some cleaning as well. Check if this solves it. If not, you may have to have the thermistor replaced.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?


On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

Ice building up in freezer


Due to the frosting up, The glass defrost heater broke. Any good tech knows this happens. The defrost heater must be replaced. If this is a GE side by side. The new replacement heater has dual elements. The standard heater that was put in them, was not large enough to defrost the coils fully. Replace heater and you should be fixed up. I would also replace the thermostat while you are in the freezer section they are only like 15 bucks and this way you will have a new defrost circuit.

Defrost Timer


Hi: It is your defrost heater most likely. If not the defrost timer. The heater is in the bottom of your freezer behind the metal panel. Next time you defrost it remove the panel and inspect it. It's a glass tube with a metal coil (filament) running through it. If the coil is broken replace it. If not look into a defrost timer. The parts will be shown on sears.com with a diagram. I hope this helps. Jeff

Freezer will not defrost on its own GSL25JFPE


Most likely, the defrost system has failed. There are three components: a defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
I would have suggest replace your defrost heater.
