I suspect it is the defrost heater but i am too old to crawl inside the freezer drawer and do any furthur trouble shooting. model is GB2SHDXTS01 serial # is KW3803167

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

We only give online troubleshooting we do not come out to your home, you would need to call a local repair service and have them come out, if you do not intend on doing the work yourself.
