Temperature in refrigerator drops with settings above freezing

The temperatures in both sides of this unit continue to get cooler.

There are two temperature controls for this unit which in on the facing inside the refrigerator side of this two door model. I can not set the temperature on the refrigerator side, with out it continuing to drop below the set mark of 37 C. Currently I am having to turn the unit off to perevent freezing of vegetable in the refrigerator, but this also prevents the ice maker from working properly.

How do I get the temperature to set in the refrigerator side?

    I have the same exact problem. Just to clarify, this is the side-by-side model. It is so frustrating. It has to be turned off for a few hours every day or my vegetables get freeze burn - ugh. This is a very expensive fridge. I will be calling a repair person for their opinion this week. I just thought I would see if there was a simple fix.

    GE Profile Arctica. Two problems: 1). The water never worked (bought it used). I can see the water is getting to the unit. I see water in the hose within the unit. 2). The temp on the frig is 28 degrees....even if I set it on 44. Help!

    My Ice maker never works, it doesn't even produce water in the ice tray.  However I do get water out of the water spout.  Temperature fluxuates and will sometimes freeze the water spout so no water comes out, and sometimes freezes my vegetables too.

    Refrigerator side freezes no matter what I set the thermostat.  The thermostat seems to have a mind of its own.
    I don't have a user manual--is there anything in there about this problem?
    Or how to set the thermostat setting that might not be obvious?


    Thanx for any help

WK[L] 3000 unit can not change the set temperature. It is stuck on 64 degrees. The unit continues to run and the temperature shows 55.


IVE SEN THIS ISSUE BEFORE

THE FACT THAT YOU CANT CHANGE THE SET COOL POINT ON THE UNIT BELOW 64 IS A SYMPTOM OF A DAMAGED CONTROL BOARD (SENTRY III), NOW THE UNIT CONTINUING TO COOL DOWN BELOW THE SET COOL POINT OF 64 AND GOING ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 55 IS MOST LIKELY THE RELAY.
I HAVE FIXED THIS EXACT SAME ISSUE BY REPLACING THE CONTROL BOARD AND RELAY ON THE UNIT.

Where is the temperature control panel of my GSS25JETA WW


It is likely there is no actual control panel, but rather a simple dial somewhere located towards the back of the inside the refrigerator compartment that has lettering that states, "warmer/cooler" with arrows that show which direction to turn to change the temperature setting.

Fridge is not cooling


Hello,

When the refrigerator side is getting too cold this is because the control of the compressor has gone bad in some way...

There a few different things that could cause the unit to lose control over the temperature of the fridge side.

If your refrigerator has a damper door that opens and closes to allow cold air to move to the fridge side the damper linkage or the damper motor may have broken or gone bad.

The coils in your fridge may have frozen over and now the air does not move at all so then the ice builds up and can freeze parts of the fridge side.

The thermostat has gone bad and so now the compressor runs continually. This will not be noticed readily on the freezer side but will show up quickly on the fridge side.

Many newer model refrigerators use an electronic sensor or thermistor to read the temperature and supply the info for the circuit board and often a digital readout.

So, here is how I would go about troubleshooting this problem.

Check the coils for ice, defrost the coils with a heat gun or hairdryer, then check for the reason why they iced over. Defrost control or defrost timer bad? Evaporator fan bad?

Check the damper door to see if it is stuck in the open position. If it is then check the motor and the linkage.

Check to see if the refrigeration unit will shut down if the thermostat or digital setting is turned up to a higher temperature. If it continues to run then find the cause and fix it. It may be a bad thermostat, sensor, or control board.

Sometimes with a change is weather to a cooler climate this will be enough to also affect the inside temperatures. Make sure that a bit of adjustment in the thermostat or setting of the temperature will not solve your problem very simply.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.
