    Tried unplugging it, that didn't work. I just took the panel off on the inside of the freezer and everything in there is frozen with frost and ice.

Try unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. It may reset itself that way.

    Leave it unplugged withe the doors open and the panel off and let the ice melt. It will take a while and you will have to put your food somewhere else to keep it from spoiling. After the ice is melted and the fan is clear, etc. try starting up again and wait 24 hours before putting food back in if it comes down to temp. If it freezes up again the auto defrost may be not operating or the control board is malfunctioning (or the design of the fan/duct is defective and prone to freeze-up--I had that problem on an LG). If it is very humid in your area try to minimize the amount of time the doors are opened.

The first thing to check is if you can hear the fan running inside the freezer. This not only keeps the whole freezer cold it alspo circulates air down to the refrigerator keeping it cool as well.

GE Model # GSS20IEPA WW Fridge warm...freezer is fine


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Side by side refrigerator problem GSH25KGRB WW


I have the same problem with my GE fridge.  I inherited the fridge with the purchase of my house.  There is a coil located in the back of of the freezer.  Remove the wire shelves and remove the screws and remove the back panel inside of the freezer.  I can almost guarantee your coil is completely iced.  I just use a hardryer to remove the ice.  I need to perform this once every four weeks.  It's a bummer.

GE TFX20JR BK WW side by side won't cool or freeze


First point: The entire fridge is cooled by the freezer section. A fan blows air across to the food section.
2) Every 8 hours or so, a timer shuts off the compressor cycle, and starts up a heater to defrost the freezer coils. If the heater(s) are burnt out, or if the safety thermostat (to prevent overheating) is open, then you will have no defrost. The coils will frost up and eventually prevent airflow to the food section. Milk goes sour.
3) In rare circumstances, the timer itself can stall. This cause the same symptoms as above, but this is not as common as the other 2 causes of No Defrost.
Sequence: Check heater continuity. Check safety thermostat continuity while cold. Check defrost timer operation.
Hope this helps. I am a journeyman with 39 years exp. Happy New Year.
