We have a GE m# GFSS6KKYESS that continues to frost up in the freezer. Lots of frost. Door gasket is good. Unit is cooling nicely, frost pattern on evaporator looks good. Everything appears to be operating normally. Would anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this problem. thank you.

Have you tested the evap thermistor and defrost circuit? If you do not find any problems there then you may have a mainboard failure. Post pictures of you evap for better accuracy.
Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist

"I think, therefore I have no earthly idea why this thing is not working...I got nothin'...". Rumored to have been uttered by a frustrated Descartes while diagnosing his GE Profile.

Thanks for the replies. We tested for continuity on the thermistor. would anyone know the correct ohm range we should see?
