Question about Refrigerators

GE Fridge/freezer not working properly!

Over Labor Day weekend, I went out of town and came home to a spoiled mess. We learned that the power was out and thought that's why everything went bad. Then we learned the power was out for only an hour and thought maybe something was wrong. So we unplugged it and cleaned it out and plugged it back in. The next day everything seemed fine and the temps were normal. But over the past week I noticed that both the fridge and freezer are not staying cold and they seem to fluctuate in temp alot. Everything seems fine then the next thing I know I open the freezer and the ice is melting and everythings defrosting! What is going on? Is the problem from when the power went out? Oh, and we have never had any problems whatsoever before and I don't notice any unusual noises now! Please help, I can't afford to replace more spoiled food!

Fridge temperature too hot won't go down with temperature controls


This looks like there is a problem with thermstat in the fridge. We had a fridge that would not cool and we found it to be the thermastat problem. You have to replace the thermstat on the fridge. Not 100% sure but a high possibility.

Refrigerator and freezer turned off


Check for loose connections in the compressor and the plug or socket. Your thermostat may also be at fault. It might be erratic now. Some ice developing on the thermostat may also cause this.

Freezer goes off with brief power failure + does not reset


What Samsung said is untrue....
The fridge and freezer have default settings...8 and 38 deg. If it looses power and is restored it will default to that....
This fridge is a complex device and is compute chip controlled.
There are tests that you can run if you have the ability to read and follow directions....That will allow you to guide a service person to what your problem is. They will probably not have this information so I am giving you the link to the service manual...

Good luck

After power outage, fridge does not work but freezer does


Sounds like a thermostat got damaged when the power surged when utilities were restored. Thermostats are usually behind the temperature controller. Hope I've helped. BB

Kenmore bottom freezer 73504. All freezer items fully defrosted.


I went to local.google.com to find fridge repair person nearby. They were able to come out the same day and solve the problem. The starter kit for the compressor was replaced. Sears couldn't make it until the following Monday when I called them on a Wednesday. I highly recommend shopping local and keeping the home town economy moving.

Freezer not maintaining temp


sounds like the evap thermistor took a ****. in the back of your freezer you have cover that sits over the refrigerator coil. under this coil sits a heater element that is turned on and off to defrost the refrigerator coil based on how long you've had the door open. the evap thermistor reads the temp inside the freezer.. close to the refrigerator coil.. and tells the heater element to turn off after it reaches a set temp where it can be sure that the ice has melted off the refrigeration coil which is about 60 deg. if your thermistor has taken a ****.. your heater element will only shut off based on the "fail safe" time (which is based on how long you've had your fridge door open) leading to a hot freezer.
i suspect your at home more on the weekend.. inside the fridge.. getting cold beers.. and that is why it ends up hotter on the weekend.
Cheers!

I HAVE THE GE PROFILE FRIDGE. THE TEMP IS ALWAYS AT 36 DEGREES AND I CAME HOME FROM THE WEEKEND TO MY FRIDGE TEMP STEADILY CLIMBING TO 48 DEGREES. MY FOOD IS GETTTING WARM AND WHEN I TRY TO SET THE TEMP IT...


likely the compressor... we have the same fridge and had the same thing happen. It was sporadic...would work, then not. Finally had GE out to repair - not cheap. Part and labor was almost $300.00 and took 2 attempts to repair.

My Fridge is less than 2 yrs old. Yesterday I heard a clunking sound coming from the fridge


to clunk,
i have a GE model PDS22SFSALSS & it did the same thing...blinking LED & clicking, then LED went blank. i read that GE was having major problems w/ the mother board, (cost for part $ 153.75 & $79.95 for service call, they couldn't tell me the labor cost!! )on many models & were re-calling some. i called GE repair 4/8/08, got no help, then i called customer service & gave them my model & serial #. they said my box would be fixed (mutha bd swapped) for free. i bought it 10/05, they came the next day & installed new board free! start w/ GE 1-800-432-2737 .....good luck
