Default GE Side by Side Freezer running constantly.

My GE side by side freezer runs constantly. The water dispenser does not dispense water, so I assume it is frozen. The temp in the freezer is O degrees F. The refrigerator side is 40 degrees F. Should I replace the control board? Thanks.

Remove the back freezer panel and describe the frost pattern, defrost if necessary and post freezer temperature.

Remove the motherboard cover, remove the 3 pin power connector and place a wire jumper between the connector pins that mate with the board pins labeled line and def. Plug in fridg, if you get defrost replace the motherboard AP4436216, if not replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator.

Thanks. Stupid question I guess, but how will I know if I have defrost? Remove the inside cover and watch?

Yes that will work. Make sure the freezer is cold and compressor running when you do this and of course pull the plug.
