Remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Defrost the drain tray whr=ere the drain hole is until water will flow down it . Hot water sometimes helps . Use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow out any debris . Get a Solid ALUMINUM wire about 9 inches long (14-16 guage) and put into the hole as far as possible without using force (bend the wire if necessary) and make a hook with the other end ahich you should hook onto the defrost heater . This ALUMINUM wire will keep the drain hole cleared of ice due to the transfer of heat from the glass defrost heater . Do not make the hook too tight for fear of breaking the glass covering on the heater .

Ge monogram beverage center has ice build up and not cooling


Anytime there is ice buildup it will not cool. Was the door left open? If so that would cause ice buildup. If it wasn't left open and it is a frost free model you have a problem with the defrost circuit. Unplug it and Manually defrost it with items removed by using a hairdryer and towels to absorb water from defrosting Afterwards it will cool again .If the defrost circuit needs service the unit will continue to frost up. Usually in frost free models there is a heater that goes bad.

I have a GE Profile fridge, top freezer. Ice buildup keeps blocking thew evaporator fan. I've defrosted 2x, checked evap drain for blockage. But ice buildup reoccurs after 2-3 days. Turning up the


You have a defrost problem. Locate your defrost timer while the unit is iced up and turn it until you hear a defined click. At this point open the freezer and listen for ice cracking. If Ice starts cracking then it's your defrost timer bad. If ice doesn't crack, then you have a defrost component bad ( heater and Bi-Metal) Ohm out your heating element and replace if there is no continuity. You can usually find defrost timer either under the front of the box, in the fridge around the light or thermostat or sometimes in the back at the bottom. The dial on the timer can only be turned one way with a large flat head. You will hear the difference in the way the clicks sound for the defined click. Good luck.

GE profile refrigerator pss266msra has a problem with the freezer. Replaced the thermistor and heater as suggested since I had ice buildup. Now icemaker is leaking water which is freezing into icicles -...


One of two things is happening.
1) the fill tube leading from outside the box into the icemaker may have ice buildup or is too close to the icemaker fill wall. Make sure there is a gap between fill tube and wall and check for ice in the tube.
2) wait for the icemaker to call for water and see how long is calls water for. It is only suppose to be 7.2 seconds. If it calls for water longer it can be overflowing. If overflowing than replace icemaker.

Usually there is ice buildup or something that the water is hitting and splashing everywhere.
If you have anymore questions or need more assistance please comment.

GE GSH25JSTA SS side by side fridge not cooling/freezing


In most cases it is the Defrost timer circuit. One of three things the Defrost time (most likely) it allows the cooling for a 6 to 10 hour period and the defrosting for 10 to 30 minutes to remove ice buildup, ICE BUILDUP is the main problem as it restrict air flow, the cooling air circulation through the system. You see cool air only comes in the freezer side and passes through vents (pass ways) to the refrigerator side. Ice buildup in the freezer side inhibits cooling air to the refrigerator side. You think the freezer is working, but it is only cooler because there is ice in there that you can't see. The Terminator (a LIMIT switch) opens the defrost circuit if the defrost heater gets too hot (second likely) the next is the Heater which heats for those 10 to 30 minutes to melt the ice buildup (least likely) no matter the Unit you have they all have this circuit... Hope this helps, I'm Tango
