I ASSUME YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE COILS BEHIND THE BACK OF THE FREEZER ..IF SO YOUR UNIT IS NOT GOING THROUGH THE DEFROST CYCLE BECAUSE OF A BAD HEATER OR BAD DEFROST TIMER OR BAD DEFROST T STAT .YOU CAN FORCE IT INTO DEFROST BY PUSHING THE FRESH FOOD DOOR SWITCH THREE TIMES IN 15 SECONDS IF YOU HAVE AN ADAPTIVE DEFROST TYPE OF DF CONTROL(ELECTRONIC TYPE).

The refrigerator stays at 47 degrees but the bottom compartments freeze


You have a defrost problem. A blockage of frost in the freezer prevents air flow over the cooling coils there, allowing very cold air to migrate back into the bottom of the refrigerator section. Unload the freezer and remove the back wall, melt the frost off the coils with a hair blower, and check to see if the defrost heater at the bottom of the coils is burnt out. If heater is OK, replace the 1.5 inch long white thermistor located at the very top of the cooling coils.

Evaporator coil freezing over


You are probably correct, the auto defrost sub-system is faulty -- and probably the timer. You'll have to take the back panel out of the freezer to see the defrost timer.

GE GSS 25QF Side by side Refrigerator


Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
