Defrost control board is in the top of the refrigerator behind the two levers that control the temperature. You have to take off the plastic cover. There are two screws and then you slide to cover to the side to remove. The board is in a white plastic housing.

SOURCE: Defrost timer sticking
Your model doesn't have a defrost timer. Everything is controlled by the main motherboard in the back. The ONLY way to get an acurate diagnosis is to call GE FActory Service at 1-800-432-2737. There is proprietary software and the tech will be able to plug in a laptop to your refer to find out what is going on. No other companies have this or have access to this software. By the way that deforst thermostat you think you found isn't what you think it is. It looks like one but it only a saftey device. Trust me...!

I would say you right on on this one. I can not help with manual . I dont no what kind it is.But I may be able to help. Sometimes they will just stick in one place. Some where On the back there is a hole with a slot on the switch. Take a screw driver and turn it clock wise several times , this will often free then up, they will sometimes stick befor they go bad. give this a try. All so a manual wouldent tell you where it is. But sometimes a nice repair man will tell you for free. Try this. Good luck DFD

I just replace my defrost timer & defrost thermostat. The timer is in the front bottom. Remove the kick plate at the bottom & you should see an orange knob. It takes about 10 min to replace. The thermostat is located in the freezer section. Remove the lower panel. This will expose the cooling coils and the defrost thermostat. Takes about an hour to replace.
