Try moving the air flow setting in the refrigerator up higher. I know my beer wasn't that cold before and moved the setting from 2 -6 and that made all the difference

Fridge freezing up


Set your Ref/Freezer per the following:

Refrigerators:
36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.

If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.

Hopefully this helps..

How do I defrost the fridge?


Hi, to begin the defrosting process, remove all non-perishable foods from the refrigerator. These items should be moved to a cooler that contains some ice in it to keep the items from getting warm. Next, turn the refrigerator's temperature down to 0 or Off depending on the model. If possible, remove any shelving from the refrigerator, clean it, and set it aside. Note that it is not necessary to unplug the refrigerator. Unplugging the refrigerator will turn-off any lights inside and it is advantageous to have lighting on when performing the defrosting process. Depending on the model that you own, either open one or two refrigerator doors and leave them open. This allows the flow of warm air to enter into the appliance and helps the defrosting process. While the doors are open, take some old cloth or paper towels and set them aside. Now you will need to wait approximately 2-4 hours for the ice to melt inside the refrigerator.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

The refrigerator temperature ins 50 and the freezer is 15. Is this the appropriate temperature? The butter is soft at this temperature


the fridge should not be above 40 degrees and the freezer not above 30. check back wall of freezer for frost. if so, coils are iced up and need to be defrosted. either take off back wall of freezer and melt ice with warm water or hair dryer, or unplug unit and let it set with doors open for a day. then clean up the water.

True 2 door reach in freezer


If its getting warmer or more humid where you are this is probably a sign of needing to clean your outer coils. Remove the panel covering the compressor and check the condition of the coils. Clean with a nylon brush or wire brush. Or blow out with compressed air.

If the outer coils look ok see if they feel warm up and down the sides. If they dont you may have a defrost problem. If they are warm recheck them in 30 minutes if still warm or warmer and no one has opened the door check the lite inside, and the fan inside (it will only run with door closed). Hit the switch and see if lite goes out and make sure the switch is being activated whith the door closed.
It could be low on refrigerant or an inefficent compressor but not laikey as much as these other items are.

The last thing is the thermometer could be reading wrong or out of calibration. Is it Electronic? Yes - Then its most likely one of the other problem before. If its mechanical (bi-metal) get another thermometer you trust or a new one and check it before you trust it. 2 of them telling you its 5'f then Id believe it other wise one or both of them are wrong.

Freezer works refrigerator doesn't


Try finding the defrost timer and slowly click by click turn it just until the compressor stops. let it finish the defrost cycle. Let it run for about 3 hours then do it again. Sometimes if the frost builds up too much the defrost system can't handle it. If you can't find the timer, take out the food, unplug it and leave the doors open for at least 24 hours. Then plug it back in. It can take up to 10 hours to cool down completely. Use a thermometer. you should be around 38 degrees in the fridge and between 0 and 10 degrees in the freezer.
