Not working 3 weeks after it's shipped

Sunday night, I found water dripping from the freezer. Then, I realized that the refrigerator stopped working. It has light inside when the door is open, however the displays on the dispenser panel and control panel are dark. I went to the basement and turn the refrigerator circuit off and turned it back on after 3 minutes. But, the refrigerator was still not working. Please help!

Refrigerator stopped working - working on repair #4

I hope all that was covered under warranty, otherwise they are playing you and your wallet for fools. Sure sounds like a refrigerant leak to me.

Water leaks inside food compartment

Your fan has stopped working. You need to either replace it or see if your defrost timer is working.

GE( 2-door) ref portion door left open the whole night,it's not working now except the freezer. Tried unplugging it for 24 hrs, but still not working.

the air ducts could still have ice in them,remove the bottom kick panel,you should find a tech sheet either on the kick panel or taped in the cabinet area down there and it will tell you how to manually put your fridge into defrost, you don't want to work on it while it's running or you'll make it worse,you'll know it's in defrost when the compressor shuts down and the fan in the freezer stops blowing if you can't find it shut down the fridge or unplug it again,remove the food from the freezer,if you're handy remove the back inside wall of the freezer and with a hair dryer melt out any ice up in the vents and blow the air from the hair dryer up above the fan motor and in the corners, ,you'll see water dripping where the ice is,heat it up until no more water drips down,hit one side for a few minutes and then the other side for like 5 minutes at a time so you don't damage anything from heating it up to much,or if you have another fridge leave it unplugged for a couple of days.if you can't remove the wall blow the air into the air slots in the back wall panel,in the right and left side corners and then in the middle,have a light or flash light,you should be able to see water dripping down,keep blowing the air in until no more water is dripping,might take you like 30 to 45 minutes to do this,then turn it back on and see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge section,if not shut it down and heat it up again,if you see water dripping there's still ice in there,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air up nto the fridge section and the air returns to the freezer through the air ducts,when the door was open warm and cold air meet and forms ice in the air ducts,if the fan is working and depending on your model and next time you write send the model number you could have a damper it could of got damaged but it sounds like all you have is frozen air ducts

Water is slowly dripping onto the floor from the bottom of the freezer door. it is as if the door is full of water. any suggestions?

ARe the temperatures good inside the freezer? If they are not near 0° F, that is the cause of the water drip.

If it is nice and cold in freezer, check freezer floor, is there a sheet of ice? you have a clogged defrost drain, clear it or have it cleared for you.

Good temps no ice on freezer floor? possible water leak inside door from water dispenser

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator

Just fixed my refrigerator last week that was doing the same thing. Water was dripping from the back top of the refrigerator and it was the drainage line in the freezer had frozen up and was plugged. Emptied the freezer and removed the bottom panel from the freezer and found large layer of ice. Turned freezer off and let everything melt. Then the hole in the back bottom of the freezer on the metal tray became visable. Contined to thaw until warm water would drain into the tray under the freezer. Was not hard at all and much better not cleaning up the water dripping all the time.

My freezer works great but the refrigerator side is warm... found block of ice between the freezer and refrigerator air supply??? best as i can describe

Sounds like your refrigerator is just began missing defrost. Inside the control panel is a 10 hour 21 minute defrost timer. I want you to look into back of freezer to see if snow or frost is also building on the rear wall. If yes then I want you to find a small hole sometimes covered with a plastic plug in the control panel inside fresh food compartment. remove plug and place a flathead screwdriver into the hole and turn slowly clockwise until compressor and fans stop. After a few minutes open freezer door and listen for sounds of crackling or sizzling of water dripping onto the defrost heater. Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze
