If your refrigerator freezes its contents, even when the cold control is set to its lowest setting, its cold control is probably defective. Call an appliance repairperson. As a rule, refrigerators are designed to maintain 37 to 40 degrees F in the refrigerator box and 0 to 5 degrees F in the freezer box. Setting either compartment to lower temperatures generally costs you extra in energy dollars. If the icemaker keeps making ice, even when full: 1) Lift the bail wire to shut it off. 2) Empty the bin, remove the icemaker, clean it, and reinstall it. 3) If the problem persists, consider having an appliance repairperson remove and replace the entire icemaker and valve, a relatively affordable repair. With this type of problem, it's often better to replace the unit rather than to pay for

The food on the refrigrator side is freezing. the water line is not working so i assume its frozen as well.


Hello Tina,

The problem with it freezing in the freshfood section is going to be because the air damper that opens and closes to let cold into the ref. section is stuck open and too much cold air is entering into the ref. compartment. This is a fairly common occurence with the GE refrigs. and by replacing the fresh food air damper which is located in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment it will open and close properly and not allow too much cold air to enter where upon it freezes everything.

Frezeer was unpluged by accident. All mear thawed out. Is it ok to refrzeethe meat and eat it later.


Is it safe to refreeze food that has thawed completely?
Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking,
although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through defrosting. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. And if previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion.

If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly.

Freezing problem


You don't want minimum temperatures if food is getting frozen. The less the temperature is, the colder it will be. If food is getting frozen, increase the temperature. Usually there is a dial in refrigerators, for example, with the numbers 1-7, 1 will be coldest and 7 will be warmest.

Model PS26PSTASS SN GL 432433 Behind the bottom drawer the fan unit is frozen. Also the ice maker has water running out and freezing along with it doesn't freeze the cubes properly or discharge them...


The frozen fan is from a bad thermister located located behind the fresh food evaporator coil. The icemaker could be getting too much water or not level. The icemaker can be leveled by placing a washer behind the mounting stud.

Freezer not freezing properly, ice on back wall


Ice on the back wall indicates a problem with the defrost cycle. The ice builds up and starts to choke off the air flow, so your symptoms would indicate that may be happening.

Defrost problems are usually any of the three components, the heater element, the defrost termination temp switch, or the defrost timer.
