GE gss25jfmd not keeping cold

I have model gss25jfmd and both freezer and refridge stopped working. I shut off unit for 12 hours cleaned, vacummed, mopped and than plugged back in. Freezer now works fine but fridge only goes to 50 degrees. Any ideas will help

    Pretty much the same problem. In my case the condenser fan stopped. The main circuit board was replaced and that fixed the problem, but ever since the fridge will not cool beyond 50 degrees. The themoster? and the circuit board for the temp controls have also been replaced, but has not fixed the problem. It seems that the only time the damper door between the freezer and fridge opens is immediately after the unit has been plugged in (the initial cycle), after that the door doesn't appear to open even though the freezer appears to cycle normally including the fan.

SOURCE: fridge does not get cold

I had the same problem. The problem was my freezer was not defrosting itself and for a while i opened up the back and manually defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer (to make it defrost faster) and lots of towels (to soak up all the water). I replaced the defrost heater in the freezer and no more problem. Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model # then look for the part. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

SOURCE: Fridge and Freezer are Warm Ice is still being made

Hi - I just had the same problem on a 48 Monogram 1996 model.
The guys at the factory told my local service center that it was the main logic board ($200 for parts) and they replaced it, but that wasn't it.
It was the evaporator sensor. i don't claim to understand it all, but I think that the sensor is responsible for telling a heating element to turn on and defrost. If it does not do it's job, then frost builds up (You can feel the frost if you feel up in the freezer, up hight and in the front)) The frost keeps the cold air from getting to the fridge. Eventually the logic unit will freak out because ti is trying to keep the fridge cold, but the fridge send back that it is hot.
The repair guy may not want to replace the sensor because it is like an hour and half to get back in there. And it is a tight fit.

I have the exact problem. My unit is 6 years old too - purchased in 2004. I have located, after cleaning the coil under the unit, this is not the source of the real problem. I took the upper cover off which houses the main logic board to find if I flicked the comp relay "compressor" the compressor then turned on. I took amp readings before and after they were .2 without the compressor running and 1.3 with the compressor on. The main board will need to be replaced. Personally I will try to locate the actual relay and replace it on the board if possible.

T-stat will not turn unit off.


The question is: it not shutting off because of a the switch or is it because it does not get cold enough. Do a test. Put a thermometer inside the freezer and leave it for an hour or more. then quickly read the temperature. The freezer should be about 25 deg. If it is not that cold, it means the compressor is not cooling. In that case, try cleaning the condenser coils in back with a vacuum cleaner or brush. If the freezer gets too cold then it is the thermostat.

The control to the fan comes from the main unit and it runs all the time,. So check out the wiring for the voltage to appear on the fan terminals , there can be break of contact in joints of wire connectors.
Once the fan works the fault must clear off with the cold air blowing.

Side by side refridge was dirty and I cleaned


I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .

GE Fridge/Freezer Having to turn temp up just to keep it cold


From your comment. It's not that you have to defrost the parts, that's what they're called. "defrost timer", "defrost t-stat" and "heat element". Defrosting the whole fridge for a few days actually will clear the ice blockage if that's it but it will return in a couple weeks if the "defrost cycle" isn't doing its thing. A fridge typically goes into some form of "defrost cycle" to keep it "frost free". As an example, every 12 hours the compressor turns off and the evap. fan turns off then a heat element turns on to melt the light coating of ice on the "cooling coils". Once about 1/2 hour goes by the heating turns off and the cooling turns back on again. This repeats over and over to keep the ice from building up too much. If that cycle is broken, the ice will build and build till the whole coil is a block of ice. Then the air can't flow around it to provide cold air for the whole unit. It acts basically like putting a large block of ice in the freezer and keeping the doors closed... without a fan to move the cold air only the very lower portion of the freezer is cold, the rest is warm.
