Question about Refrigerators
Small ice droplets on the freezer walls and back panel are normal.
If frost is building up in the freezer compartment, check for the following:
Frost buildup in these areas suggests an air leak, likely due to a gasket problem. The door gasket should seal all the way around on both doors. Make sure that nothing is between the gasket and cabinet when the door is closed.
Ice stuck in the delivery chute
Make sure the ice chute door closes completely. Check for and clear any ice stuck in the delivery chute or blocking the ice chute door. Use only a plastic utensil to remove ice from the ice chute. Do not use anything sharp to remove ice as this may damage the ice chute.
Also, check that the ice guide on the dispenser lever is snapped into place on both sides of the lever.
If this checked out ok.then the other possibility is :--
You need to replace the defrosting element to an upgraded double element. Your single defrosting element must be burnt out. The defrosting system is not working anymore.
The Defrost system consists of a defrost timer a defrost limit and a heater. On newer GE's the defrost cycle is controlled by the motherboard on the back.
also check the blockage in drain line and ventilations.
Clean the coils at the back of the freezer and recheck.You can also try 24 hours defrost reset procedure.
unplug the unit from main power outlet for more then 24 hors.Empty whole unit and let all the ice melt down.Then let it dry for some time.Clean all the melted water then reconnect and recheck.Let it work for 3 hours then check.If still frost build up then above mentioned possibilities needs to be checked.
