Question about GE PTS22SHS Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE PTS22SHS Top Freezer Refrigerator temperature problem (-43)

The temperature in the freezer compartment is around 30 degrees. The freezer temperature control shows -43 no matter what I try to change it to. The temperature in the refrigerator section is about 54 degrees. The refrigerator was newly installed yesterday. I've contacted GE and they will send someone out on Friday but I will not be able to use my freezer in the mean time.

    I was able to solve this problem myself. After the GE service tech replaced the circuit board, the problem was still not fixed. I looked at all the wires connected to the circuit board and I noticed a bundle of wires (white like the wires from the temperature sensors in each compartment) that was just dangling. I noticed another connection from the circuit board that had nothing connected. I noticed the pin patterns were the same on the male and female ends so I connected them and the refrigerator and freezer started working and the temperature display showed both compartments at 55 degrees. The compressor and fan have been running for over an hour now and both compartments are now cooling.

Its always good to have a backup , the problem with your new ge is the sensor or the whole control board , ge will most likely pay you for what you lost in the unit. The sqeeky wheel gets the oil. Sorry I know the feeling , Good luck

GE refrigerator is cooling to 48 degrees F, but the setting is at 37 degrees F. The temperature on my furnace is set to 70 degrees F. Is this affecting the refrigerator?


The freezer may be overcrowded with food in this case cold air from freezer is not migrating to refrigerator compartment. Inside the refrigerator, at the bottom and on top, there are opening sliding door that allows cold air from freezer to circulate in the refrigerator. Make sure that they are not obstructed. Or simply, your refrigerator condenser is dirty and may need cleaning. If neither of this is the solution, get a repairman to check or fix it for you.

It could be a problem depending on how cold your garage gets in the winter. Most refrigerators depend on the compressor turning on to cool the freezer section and that cold air is used to cool the refrigerator section. If your the temperature in your garage gets in the 30-40 degree range in the winter. The compressor may not turn on sufficiently since the refrigerator is typically around the 35-40 degree range. This will cause the freezer to warm up to the fridge temperature and your freezer items will defrost.

Temperature setting


The fridge should be just above freezing, maybe 2 or 3 degrees celsius. The freezer should be around -15 degrees celsius. The outside temp doesn't matter as far as the settings go.
