Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator
Welcome to FixYa.
Not to worry, this is the automatic defrost cycle...specifically the heater element, the way the fridge keeps from frost/ice building up on the evaporator.
It defrost's by way of a heater which does heat to a point to melt the frost, subsequently you'll here the water dripping on the heater and "hissing" typically ( usually 10-20 min. depending on the frost accumulated and the bi-metal thermostat tolerance...the part which insures it shut's off ).
Anyway, I hope that re-assure's you this is normal and perfectly fine.
Hope this has addressed your concern or inquiry. Thanks for visiting "FixYa" for assistance today, please take a moment to rate the info provided to you.
