Refrigerator will quit

It quits for extended periods of time and everything inside freezer melts and spoils as well as refrigerator content. Then it starts back and runs fine. Months later it does the same.

Fluctuating Freezer and Refrigerator Temperature


check the freezer evaporator thermistor on the top left corner clipped to the evaporator,if its not 16k ohm when at 32 degrees in a glass of ice water after 4 minutes it will defrost too many times and cause this issue,you need to unplug the J1 connector on the mother board in the rear behind the cover and check terminals 4 & 5 un the plug,not on the board though

Ge profile freezer completely defrosts


If your GE model number is PSS26LSR then I would bet that you refrigerator is showing signs of a WR55X10942 Motherboard

You also could have a condenser fan stopping and/or motherboard failure. On the back of the PSS26LSR there is a panel with the WR55X10942 Motherboard recessed in the back wall of the refrigerator.Can you unplug the power to the refrigerator and examine the board for swollen capacitors or burn marks? Sometimes the board will show no signs of being defective and still be the cause of why WR55X10942 Motherboard Either way I will be here to help you do this yourself if you like. Please let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

My freezer quit working. It is keeping everything cold, but it all has thawed out or melted.


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Is it ok to unplug my whirlpool refrigerator for an extended period of time, while we vacate the house?


you can as long as you remove all the food and clean it good and and leave the doors open so no mold grows inside it.make sure you defrost the freezer so no ice will melt and cause water damage.

Water dripping inside the bottom of the freezer, makes a sizzeling sound when it hits some small pipes down by the bottome drawer in back?


Good day,
If it only occurs occasionally and cooling is no issue, then what is happening is by design.
That's the frost that melts during a defrost cycle and is hitting the heater which gets quite hot during that period.

Maytag MZD2766GES refrigerator quit cooling, both sides. Noticed frosting on freezer contents, and next day the ice maker ice was melting and running on the floor. We can hear a clicking every 5-10 minutes...


How to check stuff>

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Remove the cardboard backing from the back bottom to access the compressor area.

Freezer has defrosted itself, refrigerator not holding cold


The clicking sound is from a bad start relay on the compressor or a bad compressor.
Replace the start relay. It is relatively inexpensive.
If that does not correct the problem the compressor will have to be replaced.

My refrigerator is not keeping my food cold or frozen!!


Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Evaporator coils Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer


  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)


  • The defrost heater


If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem
