Freezer temp sensor is probably faulty , there is one located on the top of the evaporator hidden deep within the appliance and also one on the right hand side wall. I would change both for what they cost.

Fridge will freeze everything every few days. Turning it off for several hours will reset and fix it but only for a few days. Been doing it for months regardless of how much food is in the fridge.


Hi,

Either you have a bad cold control or a failed damper witch will cause this issue. Most likely a bad damper though, locate the air vent top middle of the refer section and check to see if its wide open. If this does not close it will cause freezing. Good Luck

Refrig side is freezing food...........model #PSC23MGNA


HI,
This model has a cover inlet located in the bad top section of the refer, this allow shared air from the freezer to enter the refer section, this unit has a damper door and a fan in it. When the damper door breaks it allows air to enter all the time causing the food to freeze in the refer section. Part # WR49X10091, this link will should you what this part looks like and the cost of the part needed to correct this problem. Inside the white plastic shell, is the parts I was describing above. Not a difficult repair but can be time consuming as the unit is built like a puzzle and will need to be disassembled to change.
Good Luck

My GE Profile side by side refrigerator is


Sounds like the damper or damper belt may be at fault. The cold air enters the refer compartment through the damper in the back. If that damper is not controled to close/open as needed it is likely stuck fully open all the time. That will let cold air in no matter what the t-stat says. See if you can view with a mirror and see if the damper "blinds" are fully open. If the t-stat is turned all the way down the dampers should close, as less cold air is needed. Then, as the t-stat is turned up, the dampers open to let in cold air from the freezer compartment. Let us know what you find and we can go from there.

Temperature regulation not working (max only), water dispenser not working and ice maker not working although dispenser works


The symtoms sound all to common on GE units. Based on your symtoms I suspect the fresh food area is to cold. The damper assy is controled by the motherboard / thermistors. This damper assy adjusts to control the air movement from the freezer. During its cycling it can snap loose when this happens the air from the freezer is uncontroled. Within a few days the fresh food compartment temps can drop below freezing. The drop in temp also can freeze the water reservoir behind the lower crispers and in some cases the water filter. Altho You may have other issue (i.e. filter, bad fill valve assy, motherboard) the above statement happens 70% of the time. Fresh food damper assy part# WR49X10091 est $135.00.

Ice and water not working, then freezing in refrigerator, leaking


If the water tank in the fresh food section is leaking then you will need to replace it. the freezing in the fresh food section is due to the damper door not closing when it should. at the top left of the fresh food side there is a door that controls how much cold air it gets from the Freezer side. This door on your GE is controled by a motorized door witch is controled by a controlboard witch is reading sensors in your freezer and freshfood section for tempretures.

In short your freezing problem could be any of these:
temp sensor, Motorized damper door or control board. I would check the Motorized damper door first.

Freezing in cripsersG.E artica:

Models Affected: All 23 25 27 and 29 cubic foot electronic side-by-side refrigerator units with plastic Liners manufactured in 2001 or later. This includes all Profile- (Arctica and Eterna") models Consumers have called with reports of freezing in the Vegetable (middle) pan or the CustomCool M (bottom) pan , frozen water tank or frozen water filter.Freezing in the pans , a frozen water tank or a frozen water filter is caused by excessive airflow from the vents in the tower.


To eliminate these freezing issues , install kit WR49X10045. Follow the instructions included in the kit.






Damper door broken G.E artica:

Affects all 2001 models produced with "M" as the eight letters in the model i.e.: PSS25SGM with serial date code LA4 , MA4 , RA4 , SA4 , TA4 , VA4 , ZA4 & AD4. Freezing happens when damper door breaks leaving the unit with no control over the very cold air entering fresh food compartment from the freezer.

Replace damper door assy , with new damper door kit WR17X11508.

To verify the damper door is broken , remove the light shield and rear light bulb from the top of the refrigerator. Enter the factory diagnostic mode by pushing all four temperature control buttons at the same time. Perform damper motor test (FZ 1 , FF 0). Press any other button i.e. Custom cool or filter reset to start damper test cycle. Shine flashlight through right hand side opening of light assembly to view movement of damper door. To exit test mode (FZ 1 , FF 6). lf damper door assembly needs to be replaced , pull top two shelves out 2 ". Pull rear tower assembly slightly forward with both hands, move to the left and the right to expose the two screws that secure the duct assembly , also remove both screws that secure the duct to the ceiling. Replace with new damper motor assembly WR17X11508.

The refrigerator temperature keeps dropping


I had the same problem with my GE GSS25LGMB and after some googling I learned that the damper door might be broken. Indeed after I took off the damper assembly the door appeared to be broken at the hinge. This door has its own thermostat and controls the influx of cold air into the fridge which explains the frozen food. I am trying to glue the broken piece back on. See if it works. Othwersie you'll have to replace the entire damper assembly which costs about $91. (http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?item=WR49X10091&brand=GEH)

Side by side GE refrigerator freezing food in refrigerator


The unit is having a damper control issue. In the back of the refrigerator there is an assembly that is in the center at the top. It connects to the freezer side. The damper is broken, cracked or has an obstruction. Check this and see if it is the problem.
