Question about GE Profile Arctica 25.4 Cubic Feet Side-By-Side Refrigerator With Dispenser PSS25MGMWW

Freezer not cold enough

A few days ago our icemaker seemed to stop and I realized it was due to the freezer not being cold enough.There was a small amount of ice on the coils when i removed the inner back panel so i defrosted them and restarted. They quickly frosted evenly so i assumed it was functioning properly but no such luck. The fridge side seems to be ok which is strange because I thought it was fed from the freezer.

I believe that it is low on freon due to a leak or is dirty underneath and has to be cleaned where the condenser coils are.  If they are dirty it can't disapate the heat that its pulled out of the inside of the unit so it acts like its not working.  That would be the 1st thing to do is to clean the coils it should make a difference in an hour.  If not then you must have a leak in the line somewhere, which would cause the coils to frost up also.  If the large line coming from the compressor has frost on it then it is a leak.  Needs to be repaired with a repairman.  If anything else we can help with let us know.  Thankyou for your question

Ice in icemaker, but it is not dumping cubes. Water supply seems to be ok, arm is in down position & very little ice in box, so that should not be stopping it.


check your freezer temp with a freezer thermometer the freezer should be close to zero degrees, if you are not cold enough the icemaker may make ice very slow. possibly clean the coils underneath or in the back of unit. if that all checks ok check water pressure , if you have a filter it may need to be replaced

Freezer fan running but it is no longer cooling.


Good day,
If the fan in the freezer is running and there is no frost building up on the back panel in the freezer, then the problem is with the compressor.

This particular model was manufactured by Frigidaire and has had a lot of problems with the system restricting and preventing the flow of refrigerant, as well as compressor failures.
If the compressor in the bottom rear of the machine, is not starting or running, you can remove the starting components that are mounted on the side of the compressor, and have an appliance parts house check them.
If they test O.K. then you have a major problem, that would require the services of a appliance tech.

P.S. If the machine is under 5 years of age, the compressor and sealed system are under factory warranty, and should be free to you.

Refridgerator and freezer no longer cold!


Try disconnecting the fridge for a few minutes and then listen for the compressor to come on not just the fans.

Icemaker not working, freezer not getting cold enough....


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Icemaker quit working


Hello.

First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.

Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
If all of this checks out ok, then you need to make sure that nobody turned off the water supply that is sometimes located under the kitchen sink. Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.

If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.

Regrigerator stopped, now freezer too.


It is due to the defrost timer is not working. Once it is replaced, you should be good for another year. The information is given by the repairman. I have this replaced two days ago. The MayTag part number is: 61005988.

Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice


hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com
