Question about GE Zoneline AZ38H12DAD Split System Air Conditioner

GE Heat/Cool model AJHS10DCBM1

Sea Breeze: Thanks for responding. The unit is a wall unit and when the thermostat kicks the unit on it proceeds to make a loud squeal then produces a loud roar as it heats up the room. It kicks off once it reaches room temp specified, however, it continues to generate a roaring and an intermittent squeal.

OK I will be looking over the manual. Now that squeal sounds like the squirrel cage fan scraping the housing around it. Those units are so tight fit they can be twisted one way or tightened a little to much they scrape. I love them for there silence win they work right but hate them because my hand are too big to move things around inside them. Stay in touch I will be looking around while
multi-tasking today- I'll be here!

    I believe your fan motor has shaft play due to wear. When fan comes on the shaft moves in a direction that causes the fan blade inside and outside to rub and causes the squeal . The fan motor will need replaced to stop the noise.

Ge side by side freezer stays at 32 degrees

Look into the freezer at the rear wall for frost buildup as a layer on outside of that panel. Is the frost layer there? The most likely for temperature rise in the freezer and fresh food section of a GE refrigerator is a defective defrost control, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. The model number listed as your model on your post is not listed as a product sold in the USA. Can you find your model number printed around the fresh food section door somewhere?

GE Artica (pss26msrss) both the freezer and the refridgertor will not cool down...

Unplug and manually defrost with a hair drier because that ice you see on back wall of your freezer is a result of frost buildup behind that rear panel. Place all the frozen items in another safe place until the defrost is complete.Here is what your freezer may look like behind that rear panel. Not much cooling in freezer or fresh food section because this frost is blocking airflow.


The replacement parts for your model are the=> WR51X10042 Defrost Heater Assembly
And then the defrost thermostat=> WR50X10068 Defrost Thermostat

Refrigerator and freezer does not cool. Can you sent me wirring diagram GE model HSS25IFMCC

Here is a link to a=> Service Manual It may not appear to be correct but it is. Now click here=> GE ARTICA PROFILE TECHNICAL INFORMATION Now pull away from the wall, unplug and remove the lower panel over compressor and then reach in and feel top of the compressor. Let me know if cool, warm or too hot to keep your hand there. These refrigerators are a little tricky when finding the cause of the problem but seems to always affect the motherboard=> WR55X10942_Motherboard While unplugged it does not hurt to remove the motherboard and examine both sides for burn marks or signs of heat damage.

Refrigerator side of a side by side not getting cool enough. GSS201EMDWW SD212874

Most times with that model it is the defrost heater and defrost thermostat that need replaced. Look into rear of freezer and see if a layer of frost is building on the rear wall. If yes unplug and manually defrost with a hair dryer and to the point we can remove the rear panel of the freezer to expose the defrost heater and thermostat. Tell me what you find, Sea Breeze

Ge modle gsh22jfrecc is not very cold freezer fan works compresser fan works but i don`t think the commpresser is kicking on after doors have been opened .

Look for frost on rear wall of freezer. Yes? Unplug defrost and remove rear panel in freezer and use a hair dryer to speed thing up. If the defrost heater is burned out replace both defrost heater and defrost thermostat. I have been wrong I'm not perfect but that is my first guess. tell me if the model number is different than the one above your post and I will help you solve this, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Room Heat/Cool unit will not heat with heat pump

If it was me I would cnage the sensor first. Simply because it is way cheaper than the control board and these sensors are fickle as hell to begin with.

Will not cool properly.

You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze
