What else can I check - my fresh food side of fridge is still too warm, freezer fine.


GE refrigerators use a board to control cooling and defrost functions. The fresh food compartment also utilizes a motorized damper, and some models even have a fresh food fan. Air enters the fresh food compartment at the top left corner, and the return air is also in the left wall down near the crispers. Both paths must be clear.

Hi,

You have lot your evaporator fan motor in the freezer that caused no air to circulate, this would also effect the refer section too. P# WR60X10185 if you need it, check to see if the fan remains running on high speed even when the freezer door is open for 3-5 minutes.

Good Luck

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

Freezer cold, refrigerator wont get cold what can be the cause of this


lack of air flow from freezer to the refrigerator, since you have a side by side, this narrows it down a little. it could be not automatically defrosting, visual sign is thick frost on back wall of freezer, due to either a bad: main control board; defrost heater; evaporator thermistor; or safety bimetal thermostat. could also be a bad evaporator fan motor, due to a bad motor; bad main control board, or both. air damper is stuck closed, preventing air from entering fresh food side. or ice build up due to an improper door seal or other warm air source.

Fresh food section warm, freezer is cold


If you check both of the fan motor wires with a meter at the same time , and you get 120 volts , then the fan motor is bad . Do not check to ground , but both wires at the same time . To check the defrost , you will have to turn the timer into defrost , and see if the heater comes on . With no model number , can't give you anymore info . But yes , as simple as replacing the motor .

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?


On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

GE fridge: Freezer working but fresh food side not cold


The problem is the refrigeration evaporator, located in the freezer section is blocked with frost and ice and not air can pass through it. Four different failed parts can cause this problem. The defrost timer, the defrost heater safety thermostat, the defrost heater, or the evaporator fan motor. Unless you are very good with a volt-ohm meter, it wiil be difficult to distinguish which one of these parts has failed. A qualifed refrigeration service tech or a good appliance service tech with a refrigeration certification can find this quickly.
