Question about GE Profile PDS22SCRL Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Temp controls not working, fridge is ticking

Every time I set the control pannel, the numbers set back to freezer temp-40 refrigerator temp-31. The entire time there is a ticking coming from the fridge. It sounds like a motor is trying to turn over and isn't making it causing a tick sound.

I have an amana bottom freezer fridge. 3 years ago ,y freezer was frosting inside and the fridge temp was not getting cold enought. a repaiman replaced the thermostat. now the freezer is beginning to...


To fix up a frosted up vents, I had a control board replaced for $180. Then 6 months later, the bottom freezer frost up AGAIN. rather than dumping more money to fix it, I was about to buy a new fridge, but had a crazy idea: I disconnected the water to the freezer, bought plastic trays for ice cubes for $3 at walmart. Fridge has worked like a charm for 6 months. no signs of frost. Saved $1000's.

My fridge keeps freezing how do i change the temp settings


Hi!!

You didn't mentioned brand and model of your fridge, so I will give you a general answer.

Usually the controls are in the fridge compartment, either on the right or back upper wall. Usually is one control for the freezer and another for the fridge. The normal settings should be about 1/3 of the dial's range, ie. If dial have 9 numbers, the setting should be between 3 and 4, depending on use and outside temp.

Wait 24 hrs. between adjustments to allow the system to stabilize.

.NOTE:
The Freezer Temp. Dial is the main temp. controller, if you set it too low, it may not have time to cool fridge side properly.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

Princess series model FN66011S The refrigerator does not change temp.it remains warm...freezer does freeze. Is this a fixable problem?


HI!!

The little fan inside the freezer is the one in charge of blowing cold air into the fridge area, the freezer control (thermostat), regulates how cold it should get, and the Refrigerator control regulates how much of this cold air goes to the fridge compartment. It is important to keep the door gasket clean at all times in order to have a good thight seal.

Check:

1.- That the freezer and fridge controls are set correctly, acording to manufacturers specs. (a common problem arises when by accident, the temp. controls are moved out of preset adjusment.

2.- That the fan is working and sounds strong, (If you keep the freezer door open for a couple of minutes, you should hear and see the motor kiking in.)

3.- Find the vent(s) in the fridge compartment and feel if cold air is coming thru when fan is working. If fan is working and blows no air, Take the freezer's back panel off, (4 hexhead screws) just enough to see inside and check if the evaporator (radiator looking component) is covered with ice, blocking the flow of air towards the fridge compartment, if it is, your defrost thermostat and-or timer are defective.

Your temp control for the fridge when you first start it, should be a bit higher than the one for the freezer. (the freezer should be in the low-middle range.) This control is nothing but a actuator for a door that controls the flow of air from the freezer. The bigger the number, the wider the door opens, and the colder the fridge gets.

Once the system is stable, let's say the next day, you can re-adjust your controls, (don't expect an inmediate change right away, change one digit a the time and check again next day) If you set your fridge too high and the freezer too low, the freezer may loose coldness and the problem would invert.

Good Luck!!!

39 ltr engle fridge freezer wont shut off when at temp


hi,

the temp should be around 35-40 in the fresh side and below freezing in the freezer. If the probe is positioned wrong then it may not shut off. Does the probe need to be in the freezer compartment?If the freon level is wrong then the freezer may not get cold enough to shut down the control tstat. The low side pressure should be around 5 PSI.


thank you for using fixya,rate my answer

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a GE SxS that I bought in Sept. 06. About


First you need to turn the freezer temp control back on(That just turned the whole refrigerator off)
The water dispenser may have stopped due to line freezing inside the refrigerator.
The ticking could have been the the element for the defrost cycle or the starter on the compressor.
So,turn it back on,set the temp to a normal setting and if the ticking is still there,wait 30 minutes to see if it stops,If no ticking is there when you restart it,wait 24 hour and check the temp inside as well as the water and ice dispenser,If all work,It is a defrost issue.If so you will either need a defrost timer,defrost element,or defrost thermostat.
If the ticking is still there,You will need to replace the start/run capacitor.

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)
