Temps high - Evaporator was frozen solid

Freezer and Fridge temps were super high, found the issue when I removed the cover in the freezer and the evaporator was frozen solid. Unplugged the fridge, put some towels down and used a hair dryer to thaw it out while I waited on the new Defrost Heater I ordered. Install was easy and quick and after 5 days since install it seems that was the issue, temps are all back to normal. Sears PartsDirect had the cheapest price for this part.

Speedy delivery

I did not know that Sears carries GE genuine parts and very responsive to the order as well. I definitely will check in again if needed.

With a little research it was easy to install.

Defroster was hidden behind a panel in the freezer and was located at the bottom of the evaporator coil. It was a direct fit and was easy to install once it was exposed. So far it’s working without issues.
