SOURCE: Ice formation

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 taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

SOURCE: Can I convert an existing refrigerator to a freezer ?

It's do-able but really not worth the money it would take to do it. You would most likely have to change out the entire refrigeration system (compressor, evap., and expansion device.) Then you would have to add some sort of defrost timing device and defrost heaters. This woud include an defrost terminator and fan delay device as well. Way too much work and money to get what you want.
I would try to shop around too see if you can pick up a good used one from a reliable source.

Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Freezer section not freezing

If you only had ice buildup in one section of the evaporator you have a weak/inefficient compressor.
You need a new compressor or a new refrigerator.

Refrigerator is not cold and temperature control is set to 6


if the freezer is cold then you could have a couple of problems the first is the evap fan not turning.or you have a large amount of ice build up on the evap coil.check the defrost circuit and make sure it is working.

I have ice build up in the coils and the freezer is not freezing , thawed the coils with a dryer but in a couple of days it is back again


Can't locate specific manual for your product but sounds like a defrost problem.
Unit should defrost on a regular basis. Usually controlled by a timer. It should turn refrigeration system off, including fans, and turn on heaters to clear any frost or ice on the evap coils. Cycle varies on usage. Look for timer and see if it is running. Make a mark on it and give it an hour and check again to see if it has moved.
Hope this gets you started.

Freezer staying cold but fridge side is HOT


The Evaporator fan is not working. Located in the freezer above the evap coils is the circulating fan. Remove the cover to access the evap coils and circulating fan. If fan runs you have a defrost problem and the evap coils will be frozen over.

Evaporator motors won't run


Normally, freezers have electric heaters that are energized during the defrost cycle. Once out of the defrost cycle, the refrigeration system comes on but the fans do not. This allows the evap to cool off and to prevent circulating warm air from the heaters. This is controlled by a fan delay switch. It is a small, round device that can have 2, 3, or 4 wires going to it, depending on the manufacturer. It is usually clipped on to the end of the evap coil on one of the "U" bends, near the top, inside one of the ends of the evap. Usually where all the electrial components are located. It come in several variations, but it's main function is to prevent the fans from energizing too early. Usually does not bring fans on till evap hits 20 or so degrees. Check this out and get back to me.

Freezer not maintaining temp


sounds like the evap thermistor took a ****. in the back of your freezer you have cover that sits over the refrigerator coil. under this coil sits a heater element that is turned on and off to defrost the refrigerator coil based on how long you've had the door open. the evap thermistor reads the temp inside the freezer.. close to the refrigerator coil.. and tells the heater element to turn off after it reaches a set temp where it can be sure that the ice has melted off the refrigeration coil which is about 60 deg. if your thermistor has taken a ****.. your heater element will only shut off based on the "fail safe" time (which is based on how long you've had your fridge door open) leading to a hot freezer.
i suspect your at home more on the weekend.. inside the fridge.. getting cold beers.. and that is why it ends up hotter on the weekend.
Cheers!

GE side by side GSS20IEP Refrigerator freezer freezing


this is a problem that is no stranger to most GE side by sides; GE has used a glass type defrost heater in the freezer which often fails. If you manually defrost your appliance (unplug and leave doors open for 24 hrs) then plug back in, it will appear to work normally for a few days and gradually build up frost on the evap panel (back panel in the freezer) and eventually the refrigerator side will seem to loose cooling due to frosted damper, or lack of cold air transfer over the evap coil. The fix for this is to replace the defrost heaters (s). While not as common, defrost thermostats can open causing the unit to skip defrost, and even less likely is the defrost control (either mechanical timer or adaptive defrost). First, defrost your appliance, then remove the evap panel and ohm out the heater(s), if open, replace. If they check ok, check your defrost thermostat (small disc like object attached by a clip on the evap. coil itself) for signs of popping open or open ohm readings at normally closed temperatures. Its a good idea to change this anyway when replacing defrost heaters as the two work hand in hand. Last, check the defrost timer by manually advancing the screw advance clockwise until you hear the first click, then check voltage to the defrost heater and thermostat, if no voltage present replace timer. If your appliance is equipped with a adaptive defrost board, refer to the schematic for proper diagnostics.
