Question about GE Monogram ZISS420NRSS 42" Built-In Side-By-Side Refrigerator (ZIS-S420NRSS, ZIS S420NRSS)

1 Answer

Refrigerator is not cooling well nor freezing well

Cleaned the coils best I could and it got better, but refrigerator is definitely struggling to stay cool and freezer struggling to stay cold. Once we open the fridge in the AM, it will not cool back down to 37 and 0 degrees. What the devil is going on?

Amana ASD2620HRB Side-by-Side freezer running, but not freezing. What could cause this?

What is running? The important motor is the compressor - the one that works with the refrigerant to supply cooling. If it is not running you can check the start relay/capacitor. If they are good, make sure that electricity is reaching the motor windings. If the thermostat stays open, the compressor will not be activated.
If compressor is running and if there is ice buildup on the evaporator behind the back panel, then the self defrost mechanism is not working - could be you have an open heater coil. If you completely defrost the refrig for a day and then plug back in, if it works fine, then it is definitely ice buildup which serves as an insulator and prevents cold air from reaching the refrigerator portion.

Why doesn't my Frigidaire FRT21TNG freeze or cool fresh section?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRT21TNG, is not freezing or cooling. I also see that the coils are not freezing, the drain line and everything cleaned, and that the capacitor was replaced. From this point, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it will not cool as it should. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Freezer keeps freezing up. But the fridge doesn't stay cool.

the reason the fridge doesnt stay cool is because the freezer keeps icing up, try defrosting the freezer and try cleaning the condensor coils and this may help.

Ge refrigerator not making ice but once a week I dont know why it worked great and then it stops then a week later its fine again???????????????????????????????????????????????

I think your re fridge is getting to hot it will only make ice if it can freeze it, if its not staying cold enough it will cease making ice, with the weather we have been having hot one week hotter the next rain and get cool well 89deg beats 109 your refridge may be struggling to keep its cool pardon the pun. I don't think there is anything wrong with it but it is hard on the pump when it gets that hot try putting a standard box fan blowing at the coils so that it helps move some of that hot air away from it this should help some.

Yes this would be the compressor and they run with a technician roughly 600 dollars. There are two things that will cause a Refrigerator not to cool or freeze, the coils being clogged or the compressor is shot. In this case the compressor is gone. Better to just get a new frig
