GE side by side refrigerator issue

Greeting,

I have a 10-yr old GE side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer warm warning light was on 2 days ago. Inside the freezer is cold but not freezing, but the fridge seems normal.

I turned the temperature control colder but still same thing. It seems the refrigerator is constantly running at all time.

Any suggestion will be truly appreciated.

It sounds like the evaporator coil in the freezer may be icing up.
Do you know where it is and how to get to it ?

Another common problem is the condensor coils and fan that are below the fridge get clogged with dust and grease. You might want to check this first. Also verify that the fan is running down there.

You could post a model number for me too.

PJmax,

The evaporator coil should behinds the cover in the freezer, right?
I will open the cover and clean it up tonight.

I believe my condensor coils and fan that are on top of the refrigerator. I will check it tonight.

Could that be the evaporator heater or thermostat bad? Otherwise, there shouldn't be icing up there, right? How to check if the evaporator heater or thermostat are working?

Thanks a lot.

The model number you posted is incorrect.

A refrigerator model number usually starts with two or three letters followed by the cubic foot size.
