SOURCE: Auto defrost not working
a manual defrost will help in the sense that it will healp save your food now if you dont mind spending a little cash may i suggest you go buy a eurika 350 hand held steamer its great for defrosting and about 1000 other thuings around your house you canget it at lowes places like that after defrosting the unit will freeze again in about two to three days depending on how many times you open your door reply to this thered with the appox age of your unit and i can better advise from there some times as in the case of a stuck theroma stat if seen it fix them but i wouldnt count on it hold my rating tii we are done

You have to pull out the sensor from the board and test with tester, both sensor should read the resistance of 10,000 to 20,000 ohms. The reading that you show is very low it means that the thermistor is out of range and need replacement.

You have a problem in the automatic defrost circuit. I suppose you know that !
You may have to disconnect the power from your refrigerator and use hot water in a pot or a hair drier to melt the ice away. You'll have to remove the back cover of the freezer and clear the ice from there too. You most likely have an open defrost heater and/or defrost thermostat.
If you have a tech sheet which is normally stored near the compressor section, you can trace the circuits and find your problem. If you're not comfortable with this kind of work , you'll need to call a tech to check it out for you. If you don't do something soon you'll lose all the food in both your refrigerator and freezer sections.
I hope this helps you

SOURCE: refrigerator keeps running
I have the same problem. I called a service rep for G.E. and he said that there are 3 thermodisc
sensors behind the white evaporator cover. He gave me a price to repair that was completly out
of range for the problem. I paid him for his service call and sent him on his way. I then decided to
to order the parts from a factory online parts center at less then half the cost of my estimate not
to mention that when I was ordering the part the Factory emailed me a complete parts breakdown showing the Thermodisc and that my unit only has 1 thermodisc not three installed from the factory.
I ordered 2 one for a backup just in case. I deiced the buildup and installed the disc after 24 hours the refrigerator was working normal for about 4-months. Once again the refrigerator iced up and stopped cooling so I called the factory tech support and they told that it is normal to have some ice on the cover of the evaporator and the thermodisc is at that point supposed to open the cooling circuit to let the unit go into defrost mode and then close again. The Tech said that I had a bad
Thermodisc again so I put the spare one that I ordered in and it also worked for about 3 months
now I have the same problem ????????
