Frost Layer in Freezer
« on: August 20, 2013, 11:36:42 AM »

I'm having some issues with my GE refrigerator TBX18JAXJRWW constantly running/making noise like it's going to take off into space. I replaced the defrost timer a few days ago in hopes that that might solve the problem, but I looked behind the freezer panel today and saw a layer of frost/ice. Any advice on what to do? Any help is appreciated.

Noise could be coming from fan motor blade hitting ice.Ice on the coil makes me think door gaskets are not closing good and warm air is getting into box.Check all gasket from laying on floor and all around both doors.Advance timer to put in defrost to make sure heater comes on.I think you will find its more of hot air getting into the box from a gasket.

Check for heater resistance and operation. Noise would be fan hitting ice/frost. O0
