You have to replace the thermostat defroster assembly Its behind the panel at rear of freezer and runs down and under condenser coils. Part cost $42 and plugs in its easy to replace It creates heat which keeps the coils free of ice and also keeps drain from freezing.

Your idea may be a good idea and worth trying. I would suggest if you do so, you perform a complete shut down, 24 hours minimum. This machine has been hell on wheels. Restart and check it's progress. I would suggest that you shut off the water supply to the machine during this time to eliminate complications.
As well, make sure the lights go out when the doors are closed.
The lights go out just before the door closes.
All settings to normal.
If the problem restarts I would call G.E. factory service direct and request a free service call. They owe you.

Freezer temp very unstable... lots of ice build up on inside inte

This appears to be a defrost problem. Either the defrost heater is burned out or the defrost thermostat is defective. Look into the rear wall of freezer for a layer of frost building up that will tell you that there more than likely is a large area of snow and frost building up on the evaporator coil. Once you manually defrost the coils you will be able to see the part number WR51X10038 Defrost Heater. It has a glass tube on the outside so it will be easy to spot if the defrost heater element inside is burned out. If you change the defrost heater I recommend that you replace the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10054 Defrost Thermostat. The defrost controls on your model come from the mother board so the is no defrost timer or adaptive defrost. The mother board make the decision when to defrost. When you are able to unplug and inspect the evaporator coils in back of freezer back wall panel let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

I had a problem with refrigerator side not cold. I followed your suggestion and defrosted the freezer. The refrigerator worked for a week, now it is not getting cold. Is there some part that needs repair?

You have a problem with the defrost cycle. Your evaporator in the freezer is getting icedup and blocking airflow. I don't know your exact model but if it has a defrost timer then replace that and the defrost bimetal thermostat in the freezer. They are both cheap and easy to install. If your refrig has a control board then you will need to buy a new board because the defrost is controlled by the board. The boards are not cheap though.

My heat pump doesn't produce cold air. The compressors come on but the condenser fan doesn't. Any suggestions??? Thanks George

A heat pump has more than just the contactor to contro the condenser fan, if it is getting power to the fan then repalce the fan and the capacior, if ther is no power it could be the defrost control sensor, or the defrost board, as the fan must shut off during the winter to provide a quicker defrost when in heating mode, hope this helps...

Kenmore Er dh

The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.

This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.

Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.

You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.

All displays should be on.

The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.

The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.
