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
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.

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
