GE Profile Refrigerator - electical short

Hi!

We discovered that a rat partially gnawed on the electrical cord to our refrigerator. When we plugged it back it, there was a small spark, and now the refrigerator won't turn on. Thoughts? We did use electrical tape to do a repair on the cord until my husband can replace it tomorrow.

Thanks!

Unplug it,take off the tape,where it was chewed,Seperate each piece into 3 indiviual wires(You should see grooves in the wire,just cut along those grooves about 3-4 inches in each direction)Clean up the wires that are damaged,remove .5 inches of insulation only from the damaged wires,Twist the center one back together and tape,then do the same for the remaining wire..After you plug it back in you may need to check the breakers in the panel.

After plugging in the fridge the compresser does not come on. I looked at the electric panal and the fuse is still good. could it be my compresser? Ge profile. t


The compressor is controlled by the cold control. This is probably where your problem is. on a GE Profile, this is usually located on the back wall where you change the temperatures for the fridge or freezer. With the refrigerator unplugged, this control can be easily replaced, and you compressor should come back on! Hope this helps!

The door handle on the freezer of my GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator came off.


Hi, Please get me the model # from the label inside the refrigerator and I will look this up for you. Most handles have a set screw that tightens down.
