Exclamation Back Of Freezer Wall Frozen With Ice, Fridge Not Cold
Model Number: ESS2XGMD   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Fridge all of a sudden would not get cold even with it set on coldest. Then the freezer was not freezing and basically turned into the fridge. The ice that had been there started melting. Took off back of freezer wall and the entire thing was frozen solid with ice. I melted the ice with a blow dryer and magically the fridge was cold again and the freezer was freezing again. However this only lasted a few days and it started doing the same old stuff. I would greatly appreciate the help as I do not have the money right now to pay someone to fix it.

Follow the (how to) link in my previous post.
There may be some instructions in your user manual on how to "force" a defrost.
