Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
I have the above 3 y/o fridge. Lately it seems to be limping along. The freezer doesn't seem to get cold enough to make ice and i've noticed things starting to thaw slowly. I put a dish of water in it last night and this morning there was a thin layer of ice on top but it should have been frozen solid. The refridge side also seems to be a bit warm for the temp setting it is on. I hear the fan (or compressor-or whatever) so its not completely dead. I'm wondering if before i call for service if there isn't something obvious i could look at. I don't know crap about this kind of thing. Any help would be appreciated...
Brookid, first you want to start with the basics; door seals are good, light turning off with door closed, dispensor duct door closing all the way, condensor coils cleaned, evaporator fan and condensor fan are running. If you are satisfied that there are no problems here then you want to see if you have a heavy frost build-up on the back of the freezer panel. If you do, you have a defrost issue that usually involves the defrost heaters, main board or freezer thermistor. Tests will have to be made on the main board to determine these. If you don't have a frost build up, you need to check the airflow vents from the freezer to the refer compartment. I will attach a photo of a refrigerator with a defrost problem.
