SOURCE: frost build-up freezer back wall

Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel and test the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch. The defrost heater is a very common problem with this model. You can check continuity on both the heater and bi-metal to detern which one need replaced. The bi-metal switch needs to be tested while it is could. If both of these parts prove to be ok, you will need to change the mother board.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

If you replaced the "defrost timer", and the circulation fan runs ok before the ice buildup occurs, you will have to melt the ice so the panel will come off. Then, pull the back panel off and inspect to components. First, the defrost element and connections to it. If connections are good, disconnect 1 connector and check the resistance of the element itself with a ohmmeter. It should be 40-150 ohms, depending on the unit. If it is excessive or infinate, replace the element. If it is ok, leave the element disconnected and check the other component (defrost termination switch) which is clamped onto the evaporator coil and has two wires attached to it. It should read 0 to 2 ohms at room temprature, and no more than that as it is a temprature controlled switch. If it has excessive resistance, replace it. These are the only 2 components, aside from the defrost timer, that encompass the entire defrost circuit in most refrigerators.

SOURCE: GE Frig model TFX20JRBK ww with icing on freezer

I would suggest fixing it . You only have 2 parts in the defrost system . A timer , and the defrost heater which comes with the bimetal , pt . # WR51X10031 .Most probable , is the defrost heater . You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel , and defrost the coils with a hair dryer . After defrosting , 2 screws hold each ( 2 ) heater on , ant the defrost thermostat , just clips onto the top of the coils .

Stainless Steel GE Profile with Bottom Freezer.


Have you had any cooling problems coincide with the ice problem? if no evidence of temperature variations, you either have a crack in the ice maker mold, causing water to drip into the ice bucket. Or you may have a bad water valve solenoid, not closing completely when the ice maker stops calling for water, overfilling ice maker into the bucket, and further down your freezer.

those are the most common problems, though other odd situations could also be a problem.

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Water from GE Profile Refrig/freezer drips down back inside freezer wall and fills up, bypasses drain and fills up and leaks into floor.


Hi, Is it bypassing the drain or is the drain plugged? The most common is that the drain hole gets iced up and them overflows onto the floor.
Just wanting clarifcation.

GE Freezer Leaking


Open the freezer door, remove the bottom tray, smash the ice on the floor with your fist to remove it. Now get a glass of hot water and pour it into the trough which is at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer. Allow a few minutes for the ice to melt then remove it with an ice pick or scrrewdriver. Once the ice is out, pour more hot water into the trough. Now take a long tube ( an old washer fill hose works perfectly) and stick one end in the hole in the trough. Now fill your mouth with warm water and blow it very hard through the tube. Once the drain is clear, pour some hot water and a very little amount of bleach through the hole.

Water dispensor not working


Did you use the correct filter?

Remove filter, and re-install. Make sure you have properly locked the filter into place as the locking mechanism assures the filter cut off valve opens.

Also, make sure any air was purged from the water circuit by holding the water valve open for a short period of time.

Ice maker feeding too much water and overflows


I have the GE Profile TFX24PR that exhibited the same symptoms. I had water leaking, making ice in the bottom of the ice bin, as well as under the ice bin. I also discovered ice down the back wall of the freezer.

A technician replaced the ice maker, which did not solve the problem. He put the original back and replaced the valve on the back. That too did not solve the problem. I took matters into my own hands.

I discovered that the ice maker water fill tube that comes in through the back of the freezer wall was leaking. Water would run down the outside of the tube. Some of the water would go into the ice maker, some would go into the ice bin and some of the water would also run down the wall of the fan housing where it passes through a hole in the fan housing. The big problem was the water running down the wall of the fan housing. From there it ran onto the cooling coils, where it would freeze, causing the freezer to go into extended defrost. My freezer and fridge would warm up and I had some food spoil.

If this looks like it may be your problem, you may want to enlist some help for this; it is tedious, time consuming and requires working in the confined spaces of the freezer.

After disassembling the fan housing I was able to access the fill tube. It just pushes in and is prone to wear, especially after fourteen years. I just reversed the ends of the tube and pushed it back in for a snug fit. You may want to consider using a sealer. Everything is working fine now; lots of ice in the bin, and no stray ice or water.
