Side by Side Coils

Where do I find the coils for cleaning on my GE Side by Side. Approximately 2001/2002 Model.

Everything sounds like it's running, but it's not getting cold enough inside. Some cold, but not much.

Clean the coils?

How do I manually defrost the unit

Worst case to defrost, clean everything out food wise and unplug and leave doors open until it all melts. It sounds like the coils are dirty so the unit keeps running until it freezes over. Try cleaning all the coils, the compressor, etc, and when you try it make sure that there isn't anything in the way of the airstream

I have a GE gsl25jfta bs side by side, the freezer melts ice box then freezes it again.. Making a block of ice

Sounds like you could have a bad mother board. Very common problem with the GE models. It will shut compressor off, than everything starts to melt, then it comes back on. Replace main control board and it should resolve your issue.

We have a GE Side by Side Profile refrigerator and the freezer, at it's highest setting, can't keep ice cream frozen and the ice maker only puts out about 8-10 dumps in a 24 hour period. The model is...

Sounds like your coils are dirty which will cause inadequate cooling due to reduced heat exchange at the coils. Also check to make sure fan is running (next to compressor and should be running when compressor runs). The fact that your ice maker makes ice at all suggests that compressor runs, therefor no freon problems. Problem should be easily fixed with correct diagnosis. Hope this helps.

GE side by side refrigerator, coils has ice accumulating on them. frig not cooling properly.

Make sure the fan is running. and if there is a fan on bottom at the back. where the compressor is
clean the coils where the compressor is. If this don't help or stop it. It may be low on freon.

Can't find refrigerator coils/ cooling issues

There're two coils ,the condenser coil wich you already clean (also make sure the condensing fan motor works properly and the fan blades are also clean).The other is the evaporator coil wich is located inside the freezer behind the back wall cover.
