795.72063.112 keeps accumulating ice in the freezer. Keep defrosting it but it continues. How do I find the problem and fix it once and for all.


This could be a lot of things. The most common cause of this is an air leak in the seals. To check the seals take a dollar bill and close the door on it leaving a little stick out and see how hard it is to pull out. There should be some resistance to pulling it out of the door. Then move it up and try again. Check all the doors to see if they are fitting tight. Any air leaks into the unit can bring moisture and then the moisture condenses and freezes near the evaporator coils. The other thing is a water leak from the ice maker or water lines. Last but not least is the defrost system. If there is an obstruction in the drain try that is under the evaporator coils then the unit is defrosting like it is supposed to but the water has no place to go and is running over the tray and refreezing on the walls of the freezer.

Frost on back of freezer does not seem to be cool enough


Sounds like a defrost issue. The frost is caused because the defrost element heater is not working. Ice accumulates in the coils and blocks the air flow in to the freezer/refrigerator. GE refrigerators have an element heater behind that back panel under the evaporator coils. They are quite simple and inexpensive to replace. Use a hair dryer to defrost the coils to make the swap easier.

Water dripping from inside of freezer compartment.


The condensate drain has a blockage further down and possibly in one of the turns as it leads down to the pan below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie2.gif that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside


Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Pan that catches water under freezer side overflows


That is pretty unusual unless you live in a humid area. Some units have a switch that allows you to adjust for this and it simply defrosts every 12 instead of 24 hours. Also, the fan that cools the coils under the unit may not be running at normal speed since the warmth of the coils and the fan generally suffice to return the accumulated water into the air. You are right to check the door seals since if these are no longer seating well, external humidity will be gathered by the cooling coils and subsequently become the water collected below that is plaguing you.

Accumulation of water in bottom of fridge


You probably need a new door deal for the freezer. When you cet too much condensation in the freezer, it drains down the back of the refrigerator section during the defrost cycle. Check under the produce bins for a drain. If you don't have one, you're not alone. I used to have have to wipe mine out every other day until I finally replaced the seal.

Water/freezing to ice at the bottom of the freezer MZD2766ge


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all that ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youll melt everything) or by pouring hot water down the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

GE Side by side runs constantly.


The timer that controls the defrost cycle/function, may have failed and there may be no defrosting occurring. If icing of the coils due to the missing defrost cycle, there may not be enugh circulation left to keep the thermostat happy.

Try defrosting it manually (I know, it's a pain - aren't we spoiled?) and see if the compressor then cycles for a few days before it starts running continuously again.

And for Dr. Fred, the above suggestion about trying manually defrosting applies to your problem too.
The exposure to overnight moisture (ice accumulation) may have interfered with the automatic cycle.
