Two posibe reasons.
First the defrost heater is damage and need to be replaced. This is the most frequent problem and heater cost only about $32.

Remove the rear access panel in the freezer and test both the defrost heater and thermostat on the evaporator coil,if they test good,then check the defrost control next

The auto defrost timer which is normally fitted at the rear bottom of the fridge could be faulty.If the timer is working check the heaters for defrosting.Make sure that the thermostat is working and is cutting off the compressor.

Where is the defrost timer located on ge side bty side model gss25jfmdww


Hi, This model has a mother board instead of a defrost timer. If you are having a defrost issue, the first part you want to test is the defrost heaters. If you need instruction on testing the defrost cycle, please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Need location of defrost timer


The refrigerator you listed does not have a defrost timer. All defrost and refrigerator functions are controlled on rear of the refrigerator. It's called a mother board. If it s damaged you will sometimes see burns on one of the both sides, but not always. Another problem could be that your defrost element or defrost thermostat is defective. You can see your refrigerator below by putting the model GSS201EMBWW into the model search feature. I am here to help you if you want, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE side by side refrigerator defrost problem


CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.

Ge Refrigerator stopped working


Deet, Unplug the refrigerator and the 3 pins on the compressor. Remember where the three compressor wires  go when you put them back on. Test all three pins 2 at a time with an ohm meter. You should get readings all the way around. Then test 1 pin at a time touching the other probe to the copper on the outside the compressor. Tell me what you come up with, Thanks, JT
