Ge monogram not cooling

42" side by side, built in, with compressor on top has stopped cooling below 45 degrees in both compartments. I took it offline for six hours, no change. Compressor and fans are working. It is as if it went into a defrost cycle and won't come out. Is it the electronic board? The freezer temp reads "0"the fridge temp reads "45". It feels like "45" in both.:0/ Very expensive units should be better than this!

SOURCE: Our GE monogram refrig compartment is constantly below freezing.

2 possibilties most likely is a bad temp sensor it thinks its warmer in the refrig than it actually is. the next possibilty is a motherboard has gone bad in the unit.

SOURCE: 42'' monogram getting very hot between doors and in unit above

This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.

These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.

Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.

Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

GE Monogram refrigerator does not cool. The fan on top was loose and not spinning. I fixed that, and it now spins properly, but he freezer and frig will not cool at all.


I need you to pull away from wall and remove cover over compressor and feel compressor for heat. If too hot to hold hand there or if warm or just cool. Tell me what you find. I would like to help you solve this if you like. Sea Breeze

42" Built-in Monogram Refrigerator just lost power.


Check the Compressor starter. This is a black box on the top of the compressor. See if it is getting any power, also with a flash light you will be able to see if it is burnt it looks like a BIG fuse. If it is popped you will need to replace it then all will work ok after that

Temperature control


The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). The fan may spin, but it if goes too slowly, then it would blow enough cool air into the fridge, especially if it is opened quite frequently.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Vegetable and meat draws freezing everything temp@16 deg. f.


Turn your thermostat down. If all the rest of the food was even 45 degrees, it would be okay. The vetable and meat drawers will always be colder, so you set the level for the rest of the fridge at what is tolerable.

GE monogram side by side built in refrigerator: fan behin Climate control drawer makes noise when it starts


IS THE NOISE SOMETHING HITTING THE FAN BLADE?
CHECK THE FAN ASSEMBLY BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

NORMAL NOISES IN THE UNIT ARE A GURGLING NOISE OR THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER OR HISSING. THIS IS DUE TO THE FREON BEING PUSHED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AS THE COMPRESSOR RUNS. POPPING OR SNAPPING CAN OCCUR WHEN THE COILS IN THE FREEZER MOVE DUE TO A CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE.
