Question about GE Refrigerators
French door fridge. Fridge is cooling fine but freezer is not. Temp is 32 degrees in freezer and we have checked the front panel to try to reduce the temp but it is still not freezing. Also there was a sheet of ice under the pull out drawer in the fridge part. What is causing this?

Sounds like you have a clogged drain in the fridge section, and it also sounds like you have a a frost issue in the bottom or the door isn't shutting properly. If your unit isn't defrosting down in the bottom it's not going to get cold enough. If your fridge has been leaking water for too long... you might have a big mess in there. Look in the freezer for any super ice build up on the back panel. The other option is you may have a sealed system leak which may be covered by the manufactures warranty on sealed system in your manual. Otherwise you're looking at calling a tech out for multiple issues on the unit. Your condenser coils might also be too dirty too.

SOURCE: freezer temp too high
Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

You have an issue with the defrost system, either the timer, thermostat or heating element. Probably the defrost timer refer to the manual to find it. If you don't have the manual check the makers web site for a parts breakdown. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twnety minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.

I am sending you a link below to download the manual for your model. There are too many Q&A to do this here and on this page. The manual has some self diagnostic test you can do yourself through the control panel. These are very good refrigerators and they are backed by Maytag. The only problem is they are complex. You can try to find answers and if you have questions I will need to be contacted by email because Fixya has not been sending out anyones responses lately. They know about the problem. Sea Breeze
