Question about GE PSC25MSTSS Stainless Steel

Open Question

Freezer in GE side by side melts the ice

My GE model # psc25mstss thaws the ice to a point where it melts and drips into the freeze. It then cycles back to freezing and re-freezes everything in the freezer. I suppose the defrost cycle remains on too long. Do you have any suggestions where I should start?

Thanks,
Greg

SOURCE: GE side-by-side freezer not freezing.

Defrost the unit until all ice melts( force defrost by unplugging the unit for several hours). Then plug and start the unit check if the blower inside is operating. If no air present in the vents check for stock up blower motor. If blower is operating and air is present in vents. Mas be the unit is out of gas.

If the freezer is in defrost then the freezer fan should be off. Only on the electronic will the freezer fan come on in defrost but the freezer door has to be held open for 3 min before the fan comes on

That model refrigerator uses the mother control board for deciding when defrost is to take place. It has no defrost timer or Adaptive Defrost Control like other refrigerators. This sounds like *********** board part number WR55X10942 is malfunctioning. The board decides most functions of your refrigerator. Until the board is replace I do not believe the problem will resolve itself. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: DSS25KSRD SS GE Adora refrigerator- ice in tray

It sounds like the # 4 thermistor is bad . You will have to remove the lower inside rear freezer panel ( 2 or 4 screws ) and on the top of the coils , you will see a 1 " long torpedo looking piece , clipped on , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . This thermistor , tells the maon control board , the temperature of the freezer coils ( evaporator ) and when to defrost and when to stop defrosting and turn the compressor back on . There is also a defrost thermostat which cuts the heater off to keep from over heating , but I do not believe this is part of your problem . You should also replace the # 5 thermistor , located behind the oval grill , mounted on the lower right side of the freezer . This thermistor , tells the main control board , the temperature of the freezer section .

You are right. The water inlet valve is leaking a small drip and it freezes when it reaches the cold air in the freezer at the fill tube. Melt the ice in the tube with a hairdryer and replace the water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply connects to the back.

Push the white paddle in three times slowly within 15 seconds. Then wait 2 minutes. You should see the ice maker start to cycle. If the ice maker doesn't cycle, replace the ice maker. If you need a new ice maker, you can go to the link below

Dripping from freezer


WATER DRIPPING FROM THE FREEZER DOWN TO THE FRIDGE SECTION MEANS YOU HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN, WHEN THE FRIDGE GOES INTO DEFROST CYCLE, IT MELTS THE ICE FROM THE COIL, THIS WATER HAS TO GO DOWN THE DRAIN TO THE TRAY LOCATED UNDER THE FRIDGE BY THE COMPRESSOR, BUT SINCE UR DRAINIS IS FROZEN, THE WATERS HAS TO FIND ITS WAY OUT SOMETIMES DRIPS TRU THE AIR VENT, AN RUNS DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FRIGDGE SIDE, AN WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR YOU WONT SEE IT, BUT U WILL NOTICE THE WATER ON THE FRONT LATER U JUST WONT KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM...!

IF THE FAN IS NOT RUNNING YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REMOVE THE PANEL ON THE FREEZER SIDE AN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON, A BAD DEFROST DRAIN CAN CAUSE ICE ACCUMULATIONS TO THE POINT WHERE THE ICE WOULD BE SO MUCH AN NOT ALLOW THE FAN BLADES TO SPIN, CAUSING THE FAN MOTOR TO BURN, AN OVERHEAT , BUT THE PROBLEM WOULD BE THE DRAIN, AN THE WATER YOU SEE IS THE WATERR THAT MELTS FROM THE DEFROST CYCLE

Freezer Defrosts on its own


Yes it is supposed to. Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


If it seems to defrost too long and start thawing the contents then the defrost thermsotat may be bad. It's purpose is to stop the defrost heater when the temp reaches around 32 degrees. If it doesn't work the heater will stay on for the entire defrost cycle and possible melt things.

Ge profile refrigerator


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
