Best way to defrost it is to turn it off for a little while. If you need it done now take a hair drier to it.

Sounds like the freezer door was left open. In which case empty your contents of your refriderator inot collers unplug the unit and wait for the ice to melt. Also chech that the drain hole is clear of debries and food.. this unit is a self defrosting unit.

I left the bottom freezer of my 650 ajar and when I returned the unit was producing a loud buzz - presumably a motor or fan. It turns off if I pull the shelf that contains the ice tray forward.


When the door is left open alot of condensation forms in your fridge which freezes and ices up. This build-up will gather around your evaporator fan which sometimes stops it from working or sometimes the fan blades scrape on the ice built up.

Best to manually defrost your freezer. Empty your freezer. Turn fridge off. Put a pot of boiling water and close the door. Leave for some time to defrost the ice. You can repeat this a couple of times to defrost the ice. Otherwise you can use a blow-dryer as well.

When you defrost, and turn your fridge back on. Everything should go back to normal.

Side by sid ice on bottom of freezer


Defrost condensate drain is blocked so now when the freezer defrost the water does not leave freezer and go to pan below the freezer to be returned to the air inside your home by the heat and fan blowing warm air over the pan. Sea Breeze

Freezer not freezing


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

Ice freezing up on bottom of freezer and water puddles in front


Two possibilities, ice maker leaking or the defrost drain is blocked with ice or another object. Unplug the freezer and remove the rear panel in back of freezer. At bottom of the evaporator coil is a tray that catches the defrost condensate and sends it to the pan beneath your refrigerator to be be heated by the compressor and fan heat produced from the condenser. The moisture is then returned to the air inside your home. If the drain is blocked with ice or anything between the freezer and the pan below, the condensate tray will overflow will end up inside your freezer or fresh food compartment. Questions?

My GSS22SGRE Side by Side freezer & Refrig temp is too warm


Possible the defrost thermostat is bad and need to be replaced. Not allowing the evaporator coil ice buildup to melt , which acts like an insulation and restricts the air flow in the freezer compartment.

Freezer stopped freezing


If you checked the fan and for ice on the back wall (for defrost problem) Then you most likely are low on freon or you have a bad compressor. Check to see if the compressor is running (IF scorching hot its bad too) . Next check to see if the coils under the unit are hot. They should be so hot you cant hold onto them. Just touch for a second. If they are just warm, then you are low in freon.
