Usually if this is occurring then there is one of two problems, either low refrigerant or
a problem in the defrost circuit. The most common problem I have come across is
failure of the defrost termination thermostat. It is located behind the panel in the freezer
compartment and clips onto the refrigerant line It has two leads coming to it.
A lot of people recommend changing the defrost timer but I have only seen a couple
fail in ten years. The model and serial number you will need is located in the fresh food
compartment on the left. The replacement comes with wire nuts and heat shrink tubing.
You can also test the defrost by locating the hole under the temp control in the fresh
food compartment which doesn't
seem to serve a purpose, this is where you can advance the timer manually with a
screwdriver and listen or watch for the defrost element in the freezer to come on. Use
caution as this heating element gets very hot and is energized. Make sure to unplug
fridge before replacing any components.

Our Refigerator is forming ice in the freezer. It


Probably has lost the defrost function and excess ice has formed clogging air flow and shutting down ice production. Remove the access panel and inspect the evaporaton department for signs of failed defrosting.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer


Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

GE GSS25WGMCC, Ice Forming On Freezer Interior Surfaces


i had the same problem and i replaced the defrost heater and it worked fine for about one month but now having the same issue. Most of the time from what I have heard it is the defrost heater (about $60 part). I might have another issue going on with mine like a defrost thermostat. Your defrost heater is right under the panel on the inside of the freezer section. remove white panel on back side of freezer section and remove two screws and two wires and replace it and you should be fine.

GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker


I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.

Ice forming in freezer


Un-plug refrigerator,remove the back panel from freezer section and see if ice is covering coils. If so, probably the defrost heaters are blown.

Sub-Zero freezer 600 series - flashing 'vacuum condenser'. I've taken the vents off and cleaned areas, however, the message light does not come off. And the freezer has formed ice on the back walls.


Our is doing the same thing, except we do not have ice forming on the back of the freezer. We were told by a refrigeration repair company that if ice is forming on the back of the freezer then the compressor is bad.

Ice will not come out through the door


if yours is the type you can change from crushed ice to cube, make sure it is not stuck between the 2, If you put you hand in the ice holder conpartment you can should be able to feel a medal rod that turns when you change the form of ice.
Try turning this by hand to see it will come unstuck. Hope this helps
