Question about GE PSC25PSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Fridge temp reads warmer than actual temperature

The fridge side seemed like it was not cooling properly, turned it down to 34 and acording to the read out that was what it went to but still felt warm. So i put a secondary thermometer in it and although the fridge readout says 34 it is actually 40.

SOURCE: Refrigerator warm, freezer too cold

I had this same problem. You need to totally empty the fridge and freezer and allow it to defrost for 24 hours. Then put it back on and it will work. This happens if someone leaves the freezer door open and then it gets closed. The defrosted water freezes in the pipes and doesn't allow the cold air to move up into the fridge so the freezer gets even colder. This has happened to me twice!

SOURCE: refridgerator side is set to 34 but temp reads 52

your evaporator coil in the freezer behind the rear panel is iced up and cold air cant flow thru ice,defrost the evaporator coil,then check continuity of the heater element under the coil,if its good,then suspect the defrost control,usually located in the refrige side on the upper area

SOURCE: Freezer temp on GE profile

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

SOURCE: Fridge is making a clicking

This is compresso starting problem.
What you hear is the relay contact which is on and off and can stay on.
You need to check also the starting capacitor which near the relay. One of the two must be replaced with anew one, in some cases both must be replaced.
So check them both and replace the ones that are faulty.

SOURCE: MY GE TFX30PRY still cools but doesn't get

Since you say that it still cools, you need to start out with a thorough cleaning of the condenser grill. If it the air flow is blocked or the condenser grill is extremely dirty or clogged with pet hair, then the unit won't be able to dispel the heat buildup cause by the coolant running through the compressor.

I have found that if you use an air compressor blowing from the rear and a vacuum from the front works pretty good.

Sub zero 601R not cooling properly

The display does not show air temp, and it is not "live". It uses both thermistors to calculate the internal product temperature of the stuff in your fridge. You would have to have it open for a very long time to affect the reading. Also, the reason the compressor will not run after leaving the door open, is because the computer will not allow the compressor to turn on until the evaporator reaches at least a 38 degree reading, no matter what the set temp is. This is designed to ensure that the evaporator is not "iced up" when the unit turns on, thus causing a frost up. They call this an "off cycle defrost" that is how they defrost the coils without using a heater. When you disconnect the thermistor, it doesn't know what the evap temp is, so it runs in a default mode.

GE monogram refrigerator too cold

There is a balance between the freezer and fridge. Reduce the freezer temp and see what the fridge temp does. By reduce I
mean make the freezer warmer. If it is set too cold the fridge gets colder.

Refrigerator/freezer stopped cooling during a heat wave

Good day,
Turning the thermostat to a warmer setting should not have caused the machine to quit cooling. Actually, the engineers give you far less leeway than you might think.
The controls are more in a class of fine tuning, otherwise people would be getting themselves into trouble. The manufacturers simply design the warm and cold parameters in a fairly narrow range.
The best setting is normal. When away, the machine will run far less simply because of no door openings. Opening a door lets in large amounts of air every time it's done, which is where your cost to run it exists.
Two things. One, if the temp in the kitchen exceeded 90 degrees for any length of time, you are operating it beyond it's design range, however two, it sounds as if the thermostat hung up, causing your issue. You may want to have it replaced, but it would be useless to call anyone when it's performing normally.
There is no test on thermostats other than by observing their action when the machine is not operating properly.

My 7 year old GE Profile Side by Side will not get

Self Diagnostics
To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display
can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are
illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all
4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and
freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button
will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the
numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the
freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in
the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test.
Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.
For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will

Will not make ice, freezer temp is high, can not control the temp

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Whirlpool gold side by side refrigerator is not cooling correctly. Inside temperature on setting of "6" was 41 degrees. On "5" it read 39 degrees. Noticed that it seemed warmer than usual yesterday and...

I'd be looking at a froze over evaporator.. The freezer usually will seem okay, and the refrigerator will be getting warmer. however, after awhile even the freezer will go out if its froze up.

The thing you need to do is determine if your freezer evaporator is frosted. If so, the air will not be able to draw thru the evaporator and get over to the fresh food section. So, defrost the coil if it is froze up and this will give you temp service.

Its difficult to troubleshoot this,but if you have a ohm meter, you need to check the resistence of your heater and defrost thermostat. if these are good..Its possible your adc is defective..9The timer)

Subzero 650 fridge temp says 34 but is really about 50

Is your thermometer in a glass of water? That's the way to get an accurate temperature reading. You may want to call an authorized servicer.

If you cannot reach the plug, then turn off the breaker that feeds it in your electrical panel; most electrical codes require a separate power feed for refrigerators.

The sweating inside is from the door not making a proper seal, and you are getting condensation build-up. The door not shutting is not as unusual as you may think. First check the gasket condition, a new one may not be a bad idea. On these refers with the revisable doors, try removing the freezer door and then loosening the fridge door hinges and adjusting the mounts. Its a trial and error procedure so don't get frustrated. Another trick is to wad up a wash cloth into a ball and wedging it into the door gap after you open it on the hinge side, then close the door. You should have some tension, but not too much. This bends the door a little. If you can get the door to make a good seal it should solve the other problems with the temperature. If not, you are going in the right direction by locating and cleaning the vents. All the cool air in the fridge comes from the freezer.
