Default Refrig defrost time is too long
Model Number: GSS25WGMD BB   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

My freezer is defrosting so long it melts the ice and refreezes on the inside of door and bottom of freezer. The temp in the refirgerator is warmer that I think is should be but might be a result of this defrost timing issue. I have already replaced the mother board. Please help. Thanks

Here are your parts

Sounds like the defrost thermostat is toast. It is supposed to turn off the heater once the ice/frost is melted off the coils.

Is the freezer fan running during defrost? Rather rare the defrost thermostat shorts, I would suspect something else.

Here is a manual with a pretty good description of how the defrost cycle should run.

See Page 54 for the thermistor specs.

I would replace both freezer thermistors, short plastic white items, one on top of the evaporator and one on the bottom.
