SOURCE: red glow (from defrost heater?) at bottom of rear panel in freezer

This is from the GE Appliance "Knowledge Database" Web site:

Refrigerator - Explanation Of Red Glow

In a no frost refrigerator, the defrost timer activates defrost heaters in the evaporator section (rear of freezer) which heat up and melt the frost off the evaporator coils. This process lasts for approximately 25-45 minutes and usually happens up to twice a day.

During this time, there will be no running sounds, no fan noise, and you may hear water dripping or sizzling as it hits the heaters. On side by side models, you may even be able to see an orange glow at the bottom of the freezer.

This is normal.

SOURCE: defrost cycle not defrosting

Hi

Please check the defrost timer at the back of your refrigerator and also check the defrost thermostat. Defrost thermostat wiring(part #240) could be loose. You'll need to remove the back panel, held in place by 5 screws. Locate the defrost thermostat and disconnect it from the wire connection to another part. Due to the connection requirement, you may need to cut the wires from the original part and splice it with the connector with wires to the new part. After securing the spliced wires and covering in electrical tape, replace the panel and all the screws.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the inside back panel of the freezer. See if there is ice built up. If so, you have a problem with the defrost. 85% of the time, it's caused by a bad heater. It could be the termination thermostat, timer or fan. If the ice is built up. Take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. If you want, you can now check the heater and termination thermostat. It's a closed switch that opens on the rise. If you fix it your self or not, To save your food. You can replace the panel and turn the fridge back on, it will operate correctly for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to either get the part and fix it or for someone to get out and repair.
Please rate solution and make it worth the while to summit solutions. Thanks

The pproblem is in your defrost system You have to check the defrost timer, Heating elements, and defrost thermostat. The coils have to be clean to have air flow to the refriderator side.

I have an older GE Profile side by side not defrosting, have continuity in element when warmed thermostat kicks off and I have replaced the timer, still not defrosting. Model #THP21PBSMWW S/N SL238841


Need to check and see if the element is heating up when it goes into defrost. If the thermostat is bad it will not go into defrost. I purchased a new heating element for my GE and it came with the element and thermostat together. Also make sure the fan is running in the freezer this moves the heat through the coil as well as the cold temp when in freeze mode.

GE Profile - fridge not cooling


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

GE side by side


Something has gone bad in the defrost circuit.(Heating element was notorious for this) but could be a timer or thermostat. Frost buildup will cause inefficient cooling as will dirty condenser coils.

Defrost element


you can check if the heating element has a metal cover on top. water should not be dropping on the glass directly while it is heating up. that is the cause of heating element blowing up. glowing hot glass cools down by a cold drop of water equals dissaster.
