In September 2019 my GE PFSS6PKXGSS fridge started making a loud noise, which when I pulled it apart, I discovered it was due to the coils freezing over so much that it eventually froze around the fan which started knocking due to being froze.

The pictures are from September 2019 when the problem originally happened.

I defrosted everything manually, it made it 8 months, now it is making the same noise, and I can see through the slats that there is ice behind the panels like before.

So the question is:

  • What are the most likely root causes?
  • What part(s) do I need?
  • Do the parts need to be professionally installed because of refrigerant lines, etc?

Thanks for your help!:)

I had a fridge that did that. It needed a defrost timer one year and a defrost heater the next. It alternated between the heater and the timer, needing one or the other every year. As I recall, it was a GE. After we retired it from kitchen use, I put it in the barn and defrosted it manually as needed. How often depended on humidity and how often it was opened. Now it is in the basement of my son’s beach house, still getting manually defrosted. I think it is 35 years old.
