Re: ge refrigerator

This happened to me with my side by side. The repair man came to my house, said that GE have cheap refrigerators because they are not meant to last very long. The mother board that controlled the temperature went out. A component in my freezer would get frosted up, but the heater would not kick in to reduce the freezing. Everything starts to warm up in the refrigerator as a result. A new motherboard would get the refrigerator back in timing.

GE Profile refrigerator does not get cold enough to keep food. The compressor is humming but even after having it plugged in for 3 days it has not frozen anything or kept any of the food cold.

Could be the t stat not shutting the unit it runs all the time untill it freezes the evaporator in the the freezer then it runs and runs and gets hot...or if it has had a compressor replace before..the freon level what not put back in thr right way..meaning its overcharged, or undercharged..this will also do this...The coils are dirty under the unit...

Ge refrigerator is not cold enough and ice is not working

What is the model number?
The ice maker will only run if the freezer is at the correct temperature.
Do you see any ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer or behind it?

There could be a large list of things that cause the freezer to warm up from the temperature it was before. The most likely reason is you probably have a defrost problem. Defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost control are all things that may have failed. If your model is not a frost free let me know. Look inside freezer for a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If your refrigerator is not defrosting it will be a short time before the fresh food compartment begins to warm. To extend the time your refrigerator and freezer can keep food safe defrost by placing a bucket of hot water inside the freezer and close the door. Please place food from freezer and fresh food compartment into another refrigerator or cold storage area. By keeping doors shut as much as possible the refrigerator and freezer will last up to a week this way before defrosting again, Sea Breeze

Close the doors and look to see if the fresh food door is down lower then the freezer door. If it is adjust the fresh food down up until it is at the same level as the freezer door. The reason why I suggest this is hard to explain but it is a legitimate repair. This page does explain Look under the section titled damper/door switch.

Hi, Iam having trouble with the refrigerator. My refrigerator is a side to side door fridge. The freezer works but the other side of the fridge halfway to the top is not leaving the food cold only the food...

sounds like your evaporator fan motor is not running. when this happens the cold air is no longer circulated, so it falls toward the bottom of both sides. in addition, your iceamaker may stop making ice, and the water dispenser may stop dispensing water through door.
However, due to an issue with the fan motor itself possibly causing a short with the mother board, without testing properly, my advice would be to replace both the fan motor and the mother board.
