Question about GE GSS23QSSS
Hi,I have a side by side freeze that is building ice (FROST) INSIDE.I REPlaced THE HEATER ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO IT STILL BUILDING FROST.THE THERMOTAT IS OK AND THE HEATER IS ok.THE MODEL NUMBER IS GSS23QS.DOES THIS FREEZE HAS A DEFROST TIMER AND IF IT DOES WHERE IT LOCATED?OR CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?thanks.
Hi: Make sure your vents are not blocked by too much product in the freezer. When you changed the heater did you take a hair dryer to the back to make sure the initial blockage of frost and ice was removed as that will still block the air flow to the referigator, and cause frost to build? Also if the frost isn't in the back of the freezer but on the food it means there is a bad door seal. Usually the frost will look like snow flakes. The timers are on a circuit board now. And expensive. Ge makes an excellent refrigerator, but the parts are high in price. I hoped this helped. Jeff

Stopped cooling. Check the backl of the freezer to see if the Coils are Frosted completely. The buzzing sound could be the frost touching the Fan in the back of the freezer behind the cover. Sounds like your Defrost heater has gone south.
1. unplug the Freezer, power down.. for safety
2. Clean all the food out of your Freezer,
3. Remove the shelves and Ice maker tray stuff.
4. REmove the panel in the back of your freezer
5. Is the Coil(Evaporator, Radiator)you see frosted up?
6. At the bottom of this coil. you should see a metal assembly that stretches accros the bottom of the coil with a wire connection on both ends. This is the Defrost heater.
Remove the heater and look to see if the heaterspring inside the glass tube is broken. If so, get a new one from Ebay, or www.repairclinic.com.
In the mean time while your waiting on a part, Use a hair dryer to get rid of all the frost and put your freezer back topgether. You sahoul get 2 or 3 weeks of service on your Freezer, before it happens again.
