Question about GE Refrigerators
Your unit is not defrosting, causing the unit to build up ice and not allow the air to flow. There are 3 possibilities, listed with the most likely first.
1. The DEFROST HEATER in the freezer section, just behind the cover along the back wall of the freezer.
2.The DEFROST BI-METAL which is just about the HEATER, it is a small round thermostat that keeps the HEATER from getting too hot
3. If both of those parts are good, then you have a bad MAIN BOARD. The board regulates the defrost cycle, which replaced the older defrost timers.

It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician butyou could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check evaporator fan in freezer If this was helpful please rate me

ok.There is a water valve at the back of ice-maker unit.This valve open and the water enters the ice maker unit.This valve only opens when the ice maker has emptied the collected ice.But if in case this valve is not functioning properly and due to that very small amount of water is always entering the ice-maker unit and ice collected gets wet.So first thing to get the valve checked.Its a valve with twin nozzles.One goes to ice maker and one for water dispenser.In most of the cases this valve checked out faulty.But if valve checked out ok then other possibility to be checked is water fill tube which enters the ice maker section.If this fill tube is got kinked or its cracked then it will leak water to the ice maker section.------------- If any of the part checked faulty then you can get it from online site like www.repairclinic.com or
from searspartsdirect online site.---------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

What your describing sounds to me like a classic case of the water valve sticking open, as you have stated and replacing it will resolve your problem.

Giving it a shot, hold on.
Opening on bottom that goes between fridge and freezer always open its just a hole there. Took this acid panel off and coils are frozen.
I think its the temp control, I changed it and I don't remember what its suppose to be set on
