Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have defrosted the freezer manually overnight and it seems to be working fine, but as time goes on the ice will return at the back of the freezer and on the coils. How do I go about fixing this problem so the freezer defrosts automatically as it once did? Which parts do I need to look at or replace? Thanks.
Most likely, the defrost system has failed. There are three components: a defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
I would have suggest replace your defrost heater.

It's probably one of the GE models that are part of the recall a few years ago. Our GE side-by-side refrigerator Model GSS22WGMBBB is 6 years old and the GE service people came out and replaced the ice maker 2 times for free. The last time they came out and replaced the two front doors..for free. All of this is part of some Civil Class Action Lawsuit that we received info on back in 2005? But, now for the past 3 weeks, our refrigerator is getting frost on the coils, and the freezer gets too cold and the refrigerator part is warm. We've taken the back panel off inside the freezer and defrosted it manually two times, but no way is this going to be something we'll be doing for ever.
I read on another website that the recall was over in March 2008, but since the problem hasn't been resolved some people are going to insist GE replace their faulty refrigerator. All GE offers is a $400 off another GE appliance. No thanks! I went to Sear's last night, got a Sear's credit card and have to pay a boat load for a new refrigerator that I wouldn't have to get if GE didn't make fault products. :-(
