Question about GE ZDBR240PBS Stainless Steel Beverage Cooler

2 Answers

GE Monogram Bev Center no longer cooling

My Monogram ZDBR240PBS no longer cools. It doesn't sound like the motor is coming on anymore either. Is it common for the motors or thermostats to go out? I know that it has power as the light still comes on when I open the door. Should I have it repaired or just replace? Any idea of worst and best case cost to repair? Darn thing cost me $1000 so I'd hate to dump it. Thanks for your help!!!

So I took off the back cover and indeed the compressor is running as well as the fan. The warranty on the closed system is 5 years and just out of warranty as it was bought in 2003. Is it typical for these systems to leak? Would the compressor run if it was broken? I'll take it over to a technician tomorrow. Thanks for your help and suggestions!!

Depend how old it is, Monogram does have a better warranty then regular appliances, sounds like it may have a bad power supply board in the back. It may have a compressor problem but the circut board  is more likely. It would probably be worth  having a GE tech to come and give you an estimate a the very least. Only because if you purchase the new board and install it, most places will not accept returns on electronic parts. Hope this helped.

Ge monogram not cooling properly


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

GE Monogram ZISS480DRSS - freezer and refrigerator both quit cooling. I had a mostly plugged condenser coil - cleaned it & still no cooling. What would be the likely component failure path to check?


replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor as this supplies power to the compressor,it may sound like the compressor is operating,but possibly only on the start windings and will be very warm to the touch,if so replace it soon so as not to burn out the compressor motor windings
