WHY Force the Arctica to Defrost if it Don�t Want to? Don't bother using the self-diagnostics feature to force a defrost cycle. On some models � those with control knobs - which technically are not Arctica models (Arctica models have plastic liners with touch pads � Standard GE electronic models with metal liners have knobs) servicers would have to invest in parts to build a �test� control panel, complete with touch pads and digital displays, to achieve this (self-diagnostics) function. Instead, save both time and money by following this helpful Arctica Tip: If a frosted evaporator or a �frost block� is apparent, initiating a defrost cycle may not reveal anything helpful anyway. First, disconnect power and then simply check the resistance across the defrost heater and bimetal circuit at the main board located at the backside. The two associated wires at the main board are almost always BLUE and ORANGE. The heater/bimetal circuit should normally read around 30 ohms roughly. Next, check the evaporator thermister at the main board between thermister input terminals J1-4 (Blue/White) and J1-5 (Blue) to determine that its resistance is greater than 1.2k ohms but not more than 166.8k ohms depending on its ambient temperature. If thermister resistance falls within this range according to temperature (Approximately: 6k ohms at 70�F � 16.3k ohms at 32�F � 51k ohms at 0�F) and the heater/bimetal circuit is diagnosed as good, then replace the main board.

IF the below mentioned information does not help, then contact a elextrical engineer worksman who can check the circuit board as it might also cause a short cicuit.
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
