GE refrigerator defrost operation

This is a good video on how the defrost heater works on a GE Refrigerator.  You can see by the pic how intense the heat is.  This heat is what defrosts the ice buildup on the evaporator coils.  Regular defrost operation lasts approximately 20 minutes and occurs every 8-10 hours.  If you hear a "sizzling" sound coming from the inside of your freezer, this is what you are hearing.  Our phone number is 208-863-3702 for all appliance repair issues.
