The GE refrigerator has ice on the back wall in the freezer, and it is not cold enoughBrand: GE
We received a request to find out why the GE refrigerator has ice on the back wall in the freezer, and it is not cold enough. Our technician quickly identified the cause. Upon examination of the evaporator, he discovered problems with the defrost cycle. The entirety of the coil was uniformly coated in ice, indicating a malfunctioning defrost system. The technician found that the defrost thermostat was stuck in the open position, even though the temperature was low. This prevented the heating element from receiving power, causing the defrost cycle to malfunction. Consequently, the refrigerator was unable to defrost properly.
