Question about GE Refrigerators
Every 3 weeks or so it builds up frost in freezer and gets warmer, until it's not cooling. I have turned off cooling at control panel and manually defrosted it several times, but sick of doing that. Not sure if it's a circuit or coil, but is there an easy way to fix this?
It is normal to build up frost at the Evaporator.
The Automatic-defrost-System removes the Ice 3 or 4 times, every 24 hours.(de-frosting).
1 The Fan MUST rotate , inside.
Is the Fan blowing Air inside,??
sometimes The door must be shut, then the fan-motor starts (,put your ear against the door when you close it and listen for the fan- noise,)
There may be an Automatic-Defrost fault:
Defrost-Timer, (electro-mecanical) ( DT ) c. fault.
Defrost-Heater,. ( DH ) common fault.
Defrost-Termination-Timer,. ( DTT)
(Over) Temperature-Fuse. ( TF )
If the Refrigerator has 'Electronic' controls,
a Computer controls the Automatic Defrosting.
A Temperature-Sensor replaces the DDT.
A Computer-controlled timer replaces the DT
----- A Sensor faulty?
-----Control Board (Computer) faulty. Common fault.

Evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is working? Any frost on the freezer back wall?
This is the fan inside the freezer section, it will circulate the cold air around in the freezer and blow the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section, it also sucks the warm air from the fresh food section back into the freezer to be re-cooled.
Hot condensor coils ( under the refrigerator ) been cleaned recently?
That is part of a full model#.

Normally when frost build up occurs it's because warmer outside air is getting into the freezer and the moisture from that warm air cools and condensates then freezes into frost or ice. You either have a bad seal like the other listing states try leveling the front a little higher than the back. Or you may have an issue with the defrost heater, thermostat or timer. Do you have a light that comes on from time to time? If so you have an auto defrost unit. If there is no light you may not have a frost free freezer which means you will have to remove the frost manually.
