Frigerator is freezing.

The frigerator is freezing. The coils are basicly clean. The door shuts well. I turned the control down a little with no effect. I think the fan is running to much.

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is too much cold air getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is open too much.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side

2. The cold control is bad causing the compressor to run too much.

I was having the same problem .What I found was the coils were dirty and needed to be clean also the overload relay switch and the capacitor were bad.The overload relay and capacitor are next to the compressor. Replace them and you should be cool again.

Freezer works but frigerator does not


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

OR..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Frigerator throwing off an odor


Begin by carefully wiping the door gaskets down with 2 cups of vinegar in 4 cups of water. If that doesnt solve it wipe down the entire inside of the fridge with the vinegar water and then put an open box of baking soda in their.and leave it to absorb odors.

My frigerator


This will get warm. If very hot check and clean coils in front, underneath. Also check fan behind rear panel. It should be turning when the unit is running. Also check for door not closing properly.

GE Frigerator has intermittant Freezing


It sounds like the defrost heater is burned out. Remove the inside back cover in the freezer to see if the coils are frozen up. If so, more than likely your defrost heater has bit the dust. It is located at the bottom of the inside coil of the freezer.

Also, you could be have a clogged condensor coil. It is located on the out side back of the Fridge. You need to remove the panel from the lower part of the fridge and do a thorugh cleaning.
