We are in a brand new apartment building with a GE freezer/refrigerator. We are the first people who have lived in this unit. Twice the red coils behind the vents in the freezer have glowed so red hot that they began melting the ice. It seems to happen when the ice gets stuck because the tray is full of ice. Perhaps the freezer wants to make more ice, but cannot, so then the coils get very hot. This seems like a serious fire hazard. Today was the second time this happened.

We reported this to GE [REDACTED] on 8/9/15.
