Question about GE GTH18HC 18.1 cu. ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator with Adjustable Glass Shelves, and Upfront
Can't find it behind the back panel. Can't find it in the control panel inside the fridge. This model doesn't have a kick plate on front. Don't know where else to look. Thanks.

Most likely it is the defrost heater. (it's that thing at the bottom of the coils with two wires leading from it.) To test it for sure, you'd have to use an ohm meter, but many times you can visually see that the heater is bad. Defrost the coils with a hair blower. If you don't have the heater on hand, the refrig will work fine for a week until you can replace the heater.

frigidaire Model frs22zrg Water leaking into the the dispenser (where you put the glass. Also the ice dispenser become iced and where the ice comes out.
The moisture is inside of the freezer part, may need a time or the heating coil is not working.

The problem is the defrost timer you just replace on your refrigerator, you will need to check the ratings on the broken defrost timer to ensure it matches the ratings on the present defrost heater on your refrigerator, beside, you will need to test the continuity on your present defrost heater to see if the voltage rating is ok, because, if it can be tripping the breaker off while it kicks into defrost mode signify that the present defrost heater is not compatible with your refrigerator, it is either it is not well wired or fixed, and if it is, then, it means the defrost timer voltage rating is low compare to the former, you will need to get exact specification as the the broken one.

Defrost is controlled by the mother board, behind small rectangular panel on back of refrigerator. Part # WR55X10942 . (you can not use the board to manually defrost) If you are having a defrost problem, the most likely cause is the defrost heater (WR51X10055) and while you're at it, you might as well replace the defrost thermistor (WR55X10025) located at the top of the cooling coils. Manually defrost freezer by unloading freezer, removing shelves, and removing back panel inside freezer, then use hair dryer to melt frost. (you have to take those parts off anyway to get at the heater and thermistor)
