I'm sorry you said this was a g.e. ref. more than likely you have a bad defrost heater g.e. has redisigned the old single heater with a double heater because these all fail. the good news is you can repair this yourself with little trouble, heres the part # XXXXX need. wr51x10101 you can order this and install it later when you recieve the part,if you defrost freezer like i said it will run for about three weeks before it freezes up again, plenty of time to get and replace heater, click this link to see and order heater the heater is located at the bottom of the coils and has 2 screws holding it in.if you have any other questions please ask. thanks Bryan
