Freezer thawing and refreezing

I have a GE side-by-side, about 6 years old. Out of nowhere, it has started thawing (lost a load of food that way!), then freezing again. The first time it thawed, I thought one of the kids had left the door slightly ajar. Cleaned it all out, planned on calling a repairman the next day, and the next morning it was fine. This has happened a couple of times in the past 2-3 days.Fortunately, I have another freezer. It is Model #GDD25RGMA CC. Thanks for any advice!

    I called the repairman, and it turned out to be the computer. (Didn't even know it HAD a computer!) Anyway, it is working fine now. It wasn't cheap, of course...but cost less than a new fridge!Thanks for trying!

The freezer is supposed to thaw at least everyday. Only, you usually kant tell because it doesn't do it long enough to melt the food so you don't notice it. You have a couple of components to check here. 1 is the defrost timer, which unless it has been changed recently, has the same pre determined defrost time. So you would have noticed by now. Next is the defrost termination switch. If you have excess ice on the evaporator, this will make the defrost longer than before. Unless the switch is going bad causing the defrost to go extra long, there is an excess amount of ice that is more than usual. Bad door seal will cause this. A slightly low freon charge. And a thermostat that is malfunctioning, causing the freezer to run continuously, will make excess ice buildup in the freezer. I would make sure the kids aren't leaving the door open and the gaskets are good. If not the case, call a repairman.

The water is leaking from the Ice dispenser and the food is thawing


Seems like the freezer is not getting cold enough. If the ice maker was leaking the water would freeze. It would not cause the food to thaw.

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft


Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.
