Hi, No reset button. Check and make sure the evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is running. While checking that, look and see if there is any frost build up on the rear panelin the freezer. Please let me know if any of these are the case so I can asist you further.

I had a very similar problem with our GE refrigerator. The main control board looked to be the culprit. I took out the board and did a visual inspection. Upon inspection I discovered that the (2) 470 micro farad capacitors were blown. I checked the power diode near these and it was still ok. I went to Radio Shack and picked up two 470 micro farad - 35V capacitors for and grand total of $2.60 and resoldered them myself. The refrigerator has been running great since. If you want to know more details email me and I will be happy to let you know what I know. I didn't want to pay $100 for a GE guy to replace a board either!

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.
Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.
