GE Monogram damper door

I suspect a problem with the damper door on my GE Monogram bottom mount(ZIC360NRRH). Before I start tearing things apart to find the damper, I'm wondering if anybody can give me some hints on where to start looking (inside, at the back, fridge section, or freeezer section?) Thanks

SOURCE: 42'' monogram getting very hot between doors and in unit above

This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.

These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.

Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.

Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

GE Monogram all freezer about 4 years old has a door seal that won't seal and it ices up at bottom. We have defrosted three times. Is there a way to test if the door is hung crooked?

If the door hang is bent the door wont be vertical you can see it.
You can try taking apart the door and mounting it back.
More likely you need to replace the gasket.

The refrigerator side has sweat running down the side of wall next to the freezer forming water in the bottom. the temperture goes between 41% to 48%. the food spoils. what is wrong?

Without a model number, I could only guess that the automatic damper door that lets cold air in from the freezer section is broken, frozen shut, or just not operational. The refrigerator receives it's cold air from the freezer section. If the freezer is operating correctly, I would asume the damper door is not functioning. Pleazer Appliance...

It sounds like the damper assembly might have failed or be stuck open. The damper is mounted in the left side upper rear corner of the refrigerator section. The damper controls the amount of cold air that comes into the refrigerator section from the freezer.

If you want to repair the refrigerator yourself you should disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the 2 screws holding the damper cover to the center wall. Sometimes you can spray the damper with WD40 and free it up.

Water will not dispense when activated by the button on the door

If this is a unit that's been installed a while, check the Quick chill damper on the bottom. Feature Pan ducts air from the freezer via a lower damper....See if it's hung open. This can freeze the water tank which is behind the pan...Another symptom of this, may also see temps acting strangely.

My built in side by side is making a noise about every 30 minutes or so that sounds like a woodpecker pecking on it...about 10 times. It is driving me crazy! Have any idea what this might be?

I have the exact problem with my built0in side-by-side Monogram. 1 yr 3 months old, and it sounds m=like a woodpecker for 3 seconds approximately 1ce/hr. Does not appear related to ice maker. You can create the sound by changing the temp setting on the drawer at the bottom. As you command a lower temp, the sound happens a couple seconds. Actually sounds like a solenoid opening and closing at 60Hz frequency, as though a control board were feeding AC to a DC coil. Any ideas? Fortunately, this fridge has a 2 year warranty, but this should not happen to a $6K dual condenser fridge in just over a year!!

Help me with me frige not cooling bottom GE unit.

When you close the freezer door, does the fan turn off? There isn't any thing else on my bottom mount beside the damper that regulates airflow to the refrigerator box.

You should be able to drop a string from the damper opening at the back of the refrigerator down to the duct to the freezer. If you can't there is some obstruction in that duct. I suppose it is possible there is some other mechanism in that duct on your particular model, but I can't understand what its purpose would be.

The picture below shows the vents at the back bottom of the refrigerator box that return air to the evaporator in the freezer box to be re-cooled. If these are blocked, the fan can't draw air in to be blown back up to the refrigerator, unless of course the freezer door is open. 7e3c57e.jpg
