Question about Refrigerators
I have GE GSS22WGPE WW. We do not use ice maker, so it is switched off but we use freezer section. Today When I took out Ice Cream box from freezer section, it was watery instead of solid. I also noticed ice crystals on the inside wall of the freezer section. Using air dryer I removed all the frozen ice crystals from wall and put the freezer to maximum cold. After 8 hours ice cream is still watery and ice crystals start building up on the wall. Is this something I can fix by myself or I have to contact service technician?
not being able to keep ice cream is not good, before doing anything ck a few things. make sur e to pull out unit and vaccuum under and behind unit, if it cant breath it cant freeze. check in back by compressor, is the fan running to cool the fan??? if the compressor is on so should the fan be. next id look behind the freezer wall for excessive build up of frost( it might even be buildin up with ice throughthte back wall, inwhich case you have a defrost issue

Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

check the door gasket to see if theres any tears or if its dirty, also check the coil on the back to see if theres any dirt on it if so it needs to be cleaned.

there might be 2 possible solutions to this.
either you have your freezer temperature turned down or when you get low on freon your motor cannot cool the freezer part.
