I finally called GE about the non-working LED's and the temperature fluctuation. It's a known problem as many consumers have posted online. I called 800-386-1215 several times. What I found is I'd get different menu options nearly each time I called. The way I got to a 'helpful' human follows: Call above number; you will/may here a voice that states only 'for recalled appliances press 9' (may also have options for repair or parts) PRESS 0; next menu PRESS 5; you'll hear 'for less than 1 yr old press 1' and 'for more than 1 yr press 2'. In my case I pressed 2, then got a menu with 'for refrigerators PRESS 2'. Spoke to a woman who never denied that GE has a motherboard problem. She offered to provide a free motherboard but no labor. I asked (to be sure) if I would have to pay labor, she said yes or I could have $400 off a new crappy GE fridge. She said I would have to have a repairman come to diagnose the problem, then order the part and then come back to repair. I then said, 'You're telling me that I have to pay for TWO service calls to repair a known GE defect???? How much should I expect to pay for these TWO service calls???' She then asked me to hold, then came back on the line and told me that GE would pay the labor for the repair.
I also asked if GE was willing to do anything about the 25 cent door latch that cracked after 11 months (and is attached to the door gasket a $228.00 part) or the rusting wire freezer baskets and was told no. Hey, worth a try! The fact that they said no ensures that I will continue on my crusade to warn anyone who'll listen not to buy GE! Keep calling, after I got the right menu the wait was short the whole call was less than 15 minutes.

SOURCE: My ge profile fridge won't stay cold. the fridge is at 45 deg.

First things first - pull the fridge/freezer out from the wall, and look at the bottom.  You should see a metal coil somewhere - it probably needs to be cleaned.  Next, somewhere around the compressor (the big bulky thing in the bottom of the freezer) should be a fan blowing on the coil - make sure it is running.  That MIGHT have been the buzzing noise you describe - dirt on the fan blades or the fan hitting something.  Additionally, you can check the fan on the inside of the freezer - if it is stuck and/or not working, the air won't circulate properly, and you'll get pockets of different temperatures in your freezer.
Best of luck!

SOURCE: GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Why doesnt the refrigerator and freezer not get cold enough?


You need to check a few things -
1. settings for the temperature are not set too low. Not cold enough.
2 there is no leakage through the door seals.
3. there is not too much ice formed inside the freezer walls. Needs defrost.
4. the fridge is not overloaded with stuff - not enough capacity to cool things.
5. Not enough free space behind the fridge to allow air movement for coils to cool
Please provide more details of the problem if above not helping. For example model number, is the problem happening both in freezer and refrigerator settings. Get a fridge thermometer and monitor temperature in both sections. should be 4 deg C in fridge and -18 deg C in freezer after stable operation.

The water is from the heating element that does the autodefrost. There should be a drain for it though.

Fridge too warm


It is likely to be either the circulation fan in the freezer or the defrost element. The cold air is blown from the freezer into the fridge if the fan doesn't work then no cold in fridge( actually I think there are 2 fans in these, 1 horizontal 1 vertical) otherwise it could be a defrost problem, if the element doesn't work the rear fills up with ice and the air cant flow. Both are behind the rear panel of the freezer

GE Model GSS25JFMWW, started with the ice maker not working, then the water doesn't work half the time. Now the freezer and Fridge both stop working, and out of nowhere the will start again after a couple...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The ice-maker not working was a sign that the freezer temps were rising above 14 - 16 deg F. There ice-maker has an internal thermostat that activates the harvest cycle when the temps reach around 15 deg F. If the freezer is warming up it will never make ice.

What is most likely causing the recent symptoms of the unit shutting of and not stating for a long period is either an intermittent defrost thermostat (
The unit has a timed defrost cycle to START the cycle but there is a 60 deg F thermostat that opens to terminate the defrost cycle. If the defrost heater does not work the unit has to slowly warm up toward room temp without heat to reach 60 deg F for the defrost cycle to terminate. This can take a very long time if the freezer is more than 50% full as the contents will keep the temp below 60 deg F for an extended period.

I suspect you have a defrost element failure. Item 230 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=210406&diagram_id=22357329#d22357329

You should read resistance across the defrost heating element. No resistance = open element.


There is the very very remote possibility that there is a problem with the main board. Item 801 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=210406&diagram_id=22357329#d22357329
Since the unit works once defrosted I doubt the main board has failed.

There is a thermistor that is item 241 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=210406&diagram_id=22357332#d22357332 that can possibly cause the problem.

Thermistor Image:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/PartImage.aspx?imgid=Z3BqLjBfbXNfNTIwMDFYNTVSVy9IRUcvc290b2hwdHJhcC8%3d

If the defrost heating element is good then this would be suspect #2.

I hate to use someone elses material in a response but this one is so good that it is a must read:
http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-thermistor.html

Bottom line... I still think you have a defrost heating element problem at this time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
