Ice forming on back of freezer , refrigerator side not cooling GE modelgss22wgpe bb

You frig is not going through the defrost cycle. Locate the defrost timer and advance it to the defrost cycle.(one click). Empty the freezer and remove the rear panel. See if the defrost heater is starting to get hot. Located at the bottom of the evaporator. If getting hot, replace the timer. If not getting hot, unplug the frig and check the resistance across the defrost timer(should be a closed curcit when cold) and across the heater. If "0" resistance, replace heater.
When replacing the heater alwarys replace the defrost thermostat at the same time. Will save you work in the near future.

Model TFX27PFSM BB sise by side refrigerator has de Defrost warning on the diagnostic system but nothing seems wrong with the refrigerator. What could the problem be???? GE Serial # LL209010 purshased in...

If your model is the TFX27PFSM BB I only see a simple defrost timer. But not to say that you possibly have a bad thermistor that came on some models. Part number 305273 This is an alert so I would keep a close eye on freezer and refrigerator temperatures. The defrost thermostat may be defective and the light is warning you of a problem coming. Let me now if I can help you more, Thanks Sea Breeze

Not defrosting

To solve this I need the model number of your GE. Look below at photo and see if you can find it in these locations. Most likely the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control. But I will not know until you find the model number If it's a Sears model GE the numbers will be different for example 213.0564879
Thanks, Sea Breeze
