FREEZING / COOLING ISSUE

I have a GE GSS22JEmcww side by side and it it not operating at full capacity, running as if the defrost cycle is on. If I turn off for a while and restart it seems to function better but it will warm up with-in 24hrs. I just figured it was a bad defrost timer, but I could not find one on the unit or in parts look-up. How should I proceed?
Thanks
John

Evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is working? Any frost on the freezer back wall?

This is the fan inside the freezer section, it will circulate the cold air around in the freezer and blow the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section, it also sucks the warm air from the fresh food section back into the freezer to be re-cooled.

Hot condensor coils ( under the refrigerator ) been cleaned recently?

**GSS25LGMA**

That is part of a full model#.

Your refrigerator has a control board located on the back. If you can unplug refrigerator and remove the board so you can examine both sides. We need to look for burn marks on the board. That circuit board controls all functions on your refrigerator. If you want we can get this fixed from here, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Not cooling properly GE TFX20JR

Do you have ice /frost buildup on freezer wall?If so auto defrost is not working.3 possible causes ,turn the defrost timer manually to defrost position either measure amps @ 3.5 amps or listen in freezer section for crackling popping or sizzling.If you dont hear/measure this you have a bad heater or defrost tstat .Remove freezer wall look at top of coil for thermodisc 2 wires and 1 or 2 glass heaters (btm,mid coil).Tsat can be bypassed by connecting the 2 wires or checked for continuity closed at approx 20'.heaters may be visibly burnt or broken recommend changing both parts

SOURCE: 15 yr old GE TBX18SA refrigerator. Not cooling.

Remove the screw , on the left side of the control panel , and pull the panel , from the left side , outward to the right . You should now see , slightly to the right , from the middle , a black screw , a hole with slot , and slightly higher to the right , a hole with a white piece , with a hole in it . Now , the hole with the slot , turn with a screwdriver , until you hear/feel a louder click . Turn this slowly . When you hit the right click , the refrig will shut off . Remove the inside rear freezer panel ( and ice maker if equiped ) , by removing 3 or 4 screws , pop off the grill piece , and may have to twist the ice maker receptical slightly , to remove . If you do not see the heater on ( red ) , below the coils , then the heater is most likely the problem . pt # WR51x464 . Your old one , has a glass tube , but the new one , is calrod . I believe 2 screws hold this heater on .. If the glass heater does come on , then the problem is the defrost timer ( the piece you turned with the screwdriver ) which is removed , by removing that black screw and bending the panel out slightly . Pt # WR9X520 .

Side by side GE TFT28PFBBWW freezer ok, refrigerator side cools interminently, most of the times does not cool at all


The problem is defrost.

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

I have a model gss25lgmb bb. Im having issues with (couple of months) my fridge randomly stop cooling. Causing everything to defrost. My fan still seems to be on but not cooling or freezing. PLEASE HELP


If its not cooling or freezing then the compressor has to be checked.The compressor is the part which controls the cooling and freezing in the refrigerator.If the gas / refrigerant in the compressor gets low/ less then compressor will run more but it will not cool due to less refrigerant in compressor.In that case the compressor needs to be replaced. -------------- Also it can be faulty defrost assembly parts causing this issue.The thermostat is got faulty or the heater is not turning off.This also causes every thing to get defrosted.

The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.------------

Before that you can try manual defrost reset procedure. The manual defrost reset procedure is as follows : ----First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again.Then go for replacing the parts.-------------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a GE GSS20IEM side by side. It is not


The possibilitty is the 8 hour timer may be defective. This timerr is the one which cut off the compressor and powers the heater to defrost the coooling coils to condense the water to the try below. If this wont happen then the possibility of the cooling coils building up frost will decrease cooling. The thermostat can also be a culprit as the thermostat is also in circuit . You can see if the timer works in this cycle by shutting off the fridge for several hours and restarting to check the defrosting cycle.the timer is placed near to the compressor unit and the heater near the cooling coils. Hope you check this out. Good day .

I have GSS25SGP SS with no condenser fan operation. Components very hot, but unit is still cooling. Is this fan shut down a part of the defrost cycle or a fan motor failure? aerolog2


The fan has to run when the compressor is running. Usually does not run during defrost cycle. Could be bad fan motor, or the fan has lost power.
