Question about GE Monogram Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE Monogram side-by-side with a dispenser and the freezer seems to be forming icicles along the inside left wall of the freezer. I thought it was coming from the ice machine but it seems to be starting from above it. The freezer also is not keeping items frozen. I had a person look at it and said it needs a new "de-icing kit" which he said is very expensive. Do you think this is the problem?
It may just be a defrost timer. Search online for information. There is plenty to be had. Check with the website of GE for a parts breakdown or your manual if you still have it for the location of the defrost timer. You can turn it manually so it goes into defrost. Does the unit seem to be running all the time and never shuts off? If so that timer could be stuck in the cool mode and the evaporator is freezing up solid so air wont flow over it to properly cool. I've had two refrigerators I've had to repair that had defrost timer problems. One stuck in the defrost cycle and wouldn't turn on to cool, the other did what you are describing. It stuck in the cool cycle and wouldn't defrost you may need to manually bypass the cooling cycle several times to allow it to completely defrost. Usually it cycles in cool from 6,8 or ten hours and only stays in defrost for over twenty minutes. That should defrost it and allow it to start cooling again. If you notice that frost has disappeared inside on the wall replace the timer.
