GE Profile TCC18 Refridgerator freezes Up regularly.

GE Profile TCC18: Same problem as everyone else: water /ice accumulates in area around fan and then runs out and freezes in freezer through drain hole and onto floor. ande eventually stops fan. Happens regularly. Repairman said it was a thermostat and he put a new one in in the coils. Said it would fix it. Worked for a few months now freezing up again. Anyone figured out a quick fix?

I had the same problem. I changed the defrost thermostat and that has solved the problem. Just to make sure the problem is not recurring I drilled a small hole in the back of the plastic drain(behind the fridge) so that I can put a long screw driver inside to determine if there is any ice build up. None so far after 3 weeks.

Freezing and ice build up stopping fan.


hi,
you could buy a spare cover and experiment with it (the one you constantly have to take off) cut it with a hacksaw blade or bend it slightly with a heat gun so the air from the fan moves in a different direction slightly. I sure wouldnt want to be working in GE's design department and have to be responsible for a huge design flaw like this. Usually GE's are trouble free.

Hard to diagnose without being there and taking it apart. Based on my experiences, I suspect the defrost drain could be restricted. The defrost water freezes in place around the fans shrould and the fan blade hits the ice buildup. If the ice builds up enough the fan blade will be stopped and possible damage the fan motor. Access fan area to inspect and defrost (hot water, hair dryer or let it stand overnight off. DC evaporator fan motor WR60X10228 est $85

My GE profile side by side refrigerator's temperature is not staying where I put it. It keeps popping to 31 degrees when I set it for 37 degrees. My food is freezing !!


It may need to defrost. Shut it off for 4-5 hours to let any accumulated ice to defrost and see what happens.

There also is a control that directs more cooling to the refridgerator or the freezer compartment. It may need to be readjusted. It will take 24 hours to stabilize.

I have a Ge PSW26LSRDSS side by side the water line freezes


The water line keeps freezing going to the ice maker? The line in the freezer? Is there alot of ice build up around the fan because of this? If so, it sounds like an ice maker malfunction is the root of the problem, and that can cause evap fans to go bad.

I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Good Lucak!
