Question about GE Refrigerators
I have a GE Hotpoint Refrigerator CSX25GR CSX22GR CST 25GR. The refrigerator area is running about 60 degrees at the top. Thermostats are turned all the way up. Freezer is cold, but not freezing. Back of the freezer is covered with frost, which I'm told is the coils and they need to thaw. I've cleaned thoroughly under and behind the appliance. As far as I can tell, the motor/compressor (?) are running constantly. I've heard the cause of the frost could be the defrost timer, heater or thermostat. I don't have anything to test these to see if they function, and don't know how. So now what? Do I replace one and see what happens next? Help!

the partial frost pattern is an indication of low refrigerant, restriction or bad compressor. if the unit is under 5 years old this repair will probably be under warranty thru GE. if out of warranty then you are looking in most cases between 200-500 dollars for repair. good luck Thanx peyton

Check and make sure fan in frezer section works properly.you should be able to hear fan slowing down when you open freezer, or find door switch and press and hold..hope it helps you..

Sounds like a plugged drain tray under the coil. It needs to be unplugged for 24-36 hrs to melt all the ice and then remove the panel covering the coil to see why it's blocked. Sometimes they just need to be blown out to clear it.
