Question about GE GBS22HCP Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I've got no defrost in a GE model GBS22HCPAWW bottom freezer. I've had to manually do it using a hair dryer 3 times now. I checked the connector upstream of defrost terminator (one lead to d.t, other to defrost element) and it shows 31 ohms. Don't know what that indicates, and if I should remove shrink tubing from element connections to test element itself.

SOURCE: locate defrost sensor
Remove all of the racks and drawer from the freezer, take the back wall off from the inside of the freezer, defrost limiter/thermostat will be attached to the evaporator near the top, it will be a metal cylinder with two wires coming out of it. It opens on warm and closes on cold

The fill tube at the ice maker will freeze up when you have a leaky water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water source is connected to the unit. You can disconnect the water line that goes up to the ice maker and watch and see if you have a drip. This water will go to the fill tube and gradually block the tube as it is frozen when it reaches the cold air in the fill tube. You may be able to clean the valve out or just replace it.

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.
