SOURCE: GSL25JFPE-BS Side by Side refrigerator compressor and condensor fan isn't coming on

GE refridgerators have what they call a main dome control board. This is located on the back of the machine, usually closer to one side or the other and about halfway up the machine. This board really controls everything, even as far as the dispenser in the door. I personally think this is a poor design, even though they look awesome cosmetically. Locate your model number, usually in the refridgerator side somewhere, and go to www.repairclinic.com to order the part. This is becuase they have a return policy that no one can beat. If you install the part and it doesn't work they will take it back and refund you, where as any other part distributor have a no return policy on electronic parts. Good Luck, but you won't need it. This is an easy repair.

The freezer stopped working but the frige seem fine. no ice build up on the defrost timer.


No model # given to reference the symtoms. I would surly worry if you had ice buildup on the defrost timer. Some are in the fresh food side and some are outside the compartments. Extreamly rare to have one in the freezer.
Also if this is a standard SxS or top mount system...everything that happens in the fresh food section, happens because of the freezer. Air moves from the ff side to the freezer. The air is cooled down and recirulates back through the freezer and to the ff side. Issue could be ...evaporator fan bad or low RPM, freezer door switch, cold control not cycling on / back on. Compressor intermittantly cycling / bad start device / weak compressor, condenser fan slow or not cycling...should be on anytime compressor is running. Some of these items can be visually checked, some require advanced knowledge and a multimeter for test. Be careful of live voltage and sharp edges.

The refrigerator is not cooling


If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

MY SXS FRIDGE(MODEL # GD5THGXKS03) HAS STOPPED COOLING ON BOTH SIDES. THE MOTOR IS RUNNING, AIR IS BLOWING(NOT HOT, BUT OT COLD EITHER) I VACUUMED OUT THE UNDERSIDE HOPING THAT THE BUILD UP MAY HAVE BEEN...


If your model has a start-capacitor on the compressor, that is the problem. When the switch energizes the compressor, the start cap provides extra current (technically phase-angle correction) to start the motor.

If the motor start cap is bad, the current-limit switch which is typically on the back of the compressor, opens up to prevent over-current condition.

So the switch tries to start, but with a bad cap, there's too much current, so it goes click-click, click-click, and the compressor never starts.

This happens all the time on old freezers, as well as on electric dryers.

My fridge is not colling and compressor geting heat.


If this is a SxS , the overload/relay which plugs onto the compressor is probably bad if the compressor clicks off or does not run at all ,OR , the fan which cools the compressor (condensor fan ) is not working (bad motor ) , also make sure the coils are clean at the bottom in the front (condensor coils ) .

Compreser not coming on


I've had to replace many compressor start relays on 5-10 year old whirlpool SxS refrigerators. If the fan next to it is running but comp is not, that would be my first guess. does it humm then "click" ?

My Frig is not cooling


your ptc relay on the compressor when they go out they make a clicking noise. The compressor will quit and little bit later might try to come back on and click again. You need a new ptc relay. It is on the compressor little black box just unplug your refrigerator and pull the relay off. undo the wires and get a new one. Kinda staight forward compressor has 3 prongs that the relay plugs into.

Hotpoint sxs compressor stays running.


Fasnipe, it sounds like you are starting to lose the gas in the unit. Fairly soon, you'll see that the unit will fail to keep things cold. If it is less than 5 years old, you may have a warranty. If more, I suggest you get in a technician when the problem begins to impact the ability to keep food. You cannot fix this yourself.
