You have a bad defrost heater . To access , you will have to remove the inside rear freezer panel . The heater is located at the bottom of the coils . Take your model number when ordering the part so you get the correct part .

Hi Gary,

If your evaporator is not completely frosting over (top to bottom) this normally means the unit doesn't have a proper charge or the compressor can't pump all the freon as it needs to. I would check the charge, this should read "0", if less not enough, if higher than the compressor is failing. I hope this helps.

I have a 10 yr old fridgidaire side by side in the door ice and water and the top section of the freezer and fridge are not cold but the bottom shelves are okay.....any ideas?


Good day,
That is typical of the freezer fan motor not running. Open the freezer door and see if you can hear and feel the fan motor running.

If not replace fan motor. You need to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment to access the motor.

I have a 3 yr old side-by-side. The freezer is freezing ice cream solid even though it's turned all the way down. Food in the bottom two drawers on the refigerator side are freezing. Water has dripped...


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. (cold Control). It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually and will cause the fridge to get colder and freeze food. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge (it is the control that has wires, the other is the damper). Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

10 yr old GE side by side: freezer is leaking


Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck
