First defrost it by turning it off for 1\2 to 1 full day,put towels on the floor to catch the water,when a refridgerator gets frosted up it cant circulate the cold air,and if its one with the freezer on top then the cold air cant blow down into the refridgerator,check inside the refridgerator at the top where the thermostat cover is there will be a vent hole,it could have ice built up so much that its totally blocking the air flow.This usually happens when hot food is put in the refridgerator and causes steam,or the refridgerator runs too much caused by bad door seals,or the cooling fins on the back or bottom underneath plugged with dust and the freon gets too hot causing condensation inside the freezer which causes it to frost up,a plugged drain hole will back up water and freeze,the fan in the freezer may have stopped working,which is about a $60.00 part,and finally a bad defrost element (about a $40.00 part)which is a glass tube inside the freezer with a coiled up wire inside it that heats up at certain times to defrost any ice build up,(which is the last thing to check)

Hi..The first thing to do is remove the cover on the back of the
fridge and check if the compressor is running. If it's not, then it
could be the start device.Remove the power from the fridge,pull
out the start device from the compressor and shake it.If you can
hear something inside is moving,replace the start device.
check it out..
thank u..
kindly rate my response..

Defrost ge regrigerator


The most common problem with the defrost system is a burned out defrost heater. It is located behind the frz back wall usually attached at the bottom of the aluminum cooling coils which will probably be full of ice and frost buildup. You will need to melt all the ice off the coils with something like a hair dryer. The heater is inside a glass tube and can be tested with a multimeter or sometimes you can see the break in it through the glass. In some cases there are 2 or 3 heaters at different levels. Replacement kits should include as many as needed for your model. Replace them all. 2 other parts to the defrost system are the defrost timer (usually located on the front channel under the freezer door) or the termination thermostat which is a silver disk clipped to the top of the aluminum cooling coils with 2 wires going to it. Any of those 3 parts could cause the frost buildup but the heater is the most common.

The upper portion of the freezer turns off, causing the ice to melt. And the cooler side bottom drawer turns into a freezer. I can't figure out what's going on.


You have a frost blocked evaporator. Translation: The cooling coils, located behind the back wall inside the freezer section, have plugged up with frost (usually caused by a burnt out defrost heater, located at the bottom of these coils) which prevents the cold air from circulating inside the freezer, and into the top of the fresh foods section. At the same time, this blocked air flow allows very cold air at the bottom of the freezer section to migrate back into the bottom of the fresh foods section, and thus freeze item in the bottom bins of the refrigerator. Unload the freezer, take the shelves out and remove the back panel. Melt the frost with a hair blower, and change out the heater at the bottom.

MY GE refrigerator is freezing in the freezer section and the refrigerator. However, this is only at the bottom to slightly below the half way Mark. Thisis a two door refrigerator freezer. One half is...


Do not know how to find a repair in your area, but here is what is wrong:
The cooling coils, located behind the back wall of the freezer section, have frosted up, preventing the normal flow of air. Now, some of the cold air in the freezer is sinking and flowing into the bottom of the fresh foods section through the air vent by the bottom bin. To fix this, disconnect power to the refrigerator and unload the freezer side. Remove the panel at the back of the freezer section and melt all the frost and ice. Replace the heater at the bottom of the cooling coils, which would normally take care of the frost build up. Reassemble and restore power.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
