Question about GE PDS22SBRLSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My refrigerator is 2 years old. The display lights(temp control) do not stay on. If I unplug the refrigerator then plug it in again, the display lights are on for a few minutes.... Can you help me? Dan Grandbois

Yes your refrig is not defrosting automatically. You can start by removing the shelves in the freezer than removing the rear panel (the panel that is frosted half way). Use hair dryer to defrost ice from coil. This will restore your refrig temporarily. Your refrig has a pretty advance defrost system and is not easy to test. If you have a meter (volt-ohmmeter) i can help with diagnosis.

Same problem with GE Profile bottom freezer drawer fridge in Peterborough Ontario.
Repair man was here Friday and says the problem is ususally the circuit board not turning on the fan loacted at the back, bottom right corner when facing the back. It cools the coils located in the botton of the unit. Check if it is running. If not an external fan will help until the service man arrives.
But this didn't solve my problem. After he replaced the board it was fine for a day. But now, Saturday evening, the freezer is 20 degrees F and the fan is running! So there must be another problem. Dave

Sounds like you have a bad main control board . The original pt # is WR55X10552 . The replacement board is WR55X10656 . Your original board , is on a recall list , and GE should come out and replace under an extended warranty .

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Hi Mark and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Touch the front of the unit where the doors close and feel if it is very very warm to the touch. If it is very warm to the touch... here are the prime suspects:
1. condenser coils covered in lint
2. condenser fan not running or running slow.
An easy way to determine if there is a condenser fan or coil fan problem is to simply direct a floor fan at the base if the refrigerator. If it cools down substantially in an hour.... there is a problem with the coils being clogged or the condenser fan not running. If that makes no difference... before opening the back of the unit... inspect the back wall of the freezer compartment for any signs of ice build up. If you see ice-build up.... unplug the unit.. remove freezer contents and direct that fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Then return the unit to normal service.... If the temps come down to normal... for 2 - 3 days then start creeping up again... you have an automatic defrosting problem.
Forgot to mention... make sure the evaporator fan is running at full speed.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Testimonial: "Thanks Kelly, Unit was loaded with ice. The heater was bad and I also changed the thermostat since it was opened. Thanks again Mark"
