Question about GE Refrigerators
If you keep getting the problem I would replace the whole defrost thermostat kit :heater harness def asm (defrost heater kit with thermostat).
There is also a defrost thermostat in the upper part of the evap:thermostat def (defrost thermostat).I am not sure but I think this is not included in the kit. If this is not included in kit, replace it along with the rest. This last is part 240 in this diagram.
Also ensure that the fan is working , if the evap fan does not come up, you get the coils freezing and you may blow the element
Ensure also that the element is not getting energized all the time because of a contact. That is not a common fault in fridges but you never know ( that is rather common in dryer and washer where vibrations and rust easily cause wiring contacts).
Here all parts and diagrams.
