Ge eterna refrigerator loud humming

We have a GE Eterna side-by-side refrigerator.  Woke up this morning, and loud humming whirring sound was coming from the freezer area in the back, near the ice maker, maybe the fan.  There is a lot of frost build-up and icicles within the freezer.  Husband suggested this is the defrost (frostguard) running. Do you think so?  It seems very loud, and i'm worried.  Do you think this is normal?

Suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want

Ge eterna touchpads

I would first pull the plug then reset the breaker then plug the unit back in. If the control panel does not come back on then check the power source by plugging a lamp or radio in where the fridge is plugged in. If they work the you will have to take the back panel off of the fridge and check for loose wires or a loose marrette. If all looks good then unfortunately it is probubally the control that is pooped out and needs to be replaced.

GE Eterna compressor not going on

If your compressor is not running you would first check the start relay in the unit with a multimeter shown here in this diagram
remove the relay from the compressor and inspect it thoroughly. If you shake the relay lightly if you hear a rattling sound inside this is one way to assure the relay is defective. If there are any electrical burns on the relay as well is also a sign of a defective relay. Here also is a video on how to check the relay as well click here

If you have any further questions or the relay tests good message me back for further diagnosis. I await your reply
Thank you,
