UN PLUG IT FIRST.UN PLUG IT FIRST. To do this with warm water.
You need to defrost her. The main evap is in the freezer side, pull out all the food and stuff. Pull out the shelves. Try to find out how to remove the back, take the back off. Get ready to make a mess. Pour warm water on the coil. Make sure the drain is open. Most of the time this is whats wrong, some one may have left the door open a smidge. Causing the frost, too much outside warm air. Also look for what is called a Klixon switch, should have two wires running to it, and will be clipped onto one of the coil pipes. Make sure the wires are connected proper. You can try to put the Fridge in manual defrost buy opening the freezer door and manual tunning off/on the light. Try 6 times real quickly, flick, flick, flick, flick flick 6 times buy hand. if that does not work try 8 times. if this does not work to put it in defrost make the mess with warm water.

Typically a frost build up would indicate a low charge. Partial freezing as evaporation happens too quickly in part of the circuit. Check the charge.

Fridge and Freezer Not getting Cold


Your defrost system is at fault.
With this brand it is most likely the defrost thermostat and defrost heater located behind the back freezer panel.
Remove the shelves and bin,then remove the freezer panel. Defrost the ice manually.
Replace the thermostat and heater assembly.

Ice building up in freezer


Due to the frosting up, The glass defrost heater broke. Any good tech knows this happens. The defrost heater must be replaced. If this is a GE side by side. The new replacement heater has dual elements. The standard heater that was put in them, was not large enough to defrost the coils fully. Replace heater and you should be fixed up. I would also replace the thermostat while you are in the freezer section they are only like 15 bucks and this way you will have a new defrost circuit.

Ge Fridge not cooling


Make sure that the light in the ref side is not staying on when the door is closed. Could have a bad door switch. Probably have a defrost problem in the freezer. Check to see if there is a lot of frost build up on the inside/back of the freezer. If there is then you have a bad heater or defrost thermostat or a bad timer. Also another possibility is make sure the freezer fan is working. If there is no circulation of air then the fresh food side will get warm. Then replace evaporator fan motor.

FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT TOO WARM


it could be a defrost heater problem . the heating cycle is not defrosting the ice that is why your having frost build up. the heater could be damaged, thermosdisc damaged, electronic timer module damaged.try thawing it up by unpluging it for a day or two until there is no more water dripping at the back then try it again, im sure the refrigerator section would cool again for a week or two before it wouyld go back to the same problem. dont forget to bring back the setting to 5 for freezer and 35 for refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work.
