Problem with ge profile fridge

This has happened multiple times, the fan between the frezzer and the fridge part freezes up, then the top part of the fridge gets hot. Do you have any idea why the fan freezes up? I have learned to take the bottom out of the fridge part and defrost with a hair dryer, but at times I have had to throw out all the food on the top. I now keep a thermometer in the fridge.

    Yes my freezer starts forming ice around the fan and it stops. The repairman said he could replace the styrofoam according to GE. I somehow do not trust them.

this problem started after they moved the evaporator from the rear wall to the floor of the freezer the new evaporator allows too much air flow over the fan thus your problem

The ice is blocking the air blower in the frizer and it won't deprost. The friges can't get any cold unless if I put it high.

Frezzer not cold enough..Defrosted..thought fan was frozen

It is possible that the auto defrosting is not working. There could be a problem in the timer unit of the fridge which is not switching the timer to heat and defrost after the set time.
Check this out, the fan has freezed up due to the build up of the frost and must be checked for good performance or if damaged.
Check wiring to the timer unit.
Hope this tip helps.
