Question about GE Profile PDS22SCRL Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

The entire backwall of the unit is solid ice. 2

The entire backwall of the unit is solid ice. 2 weeks ago i took the door off and the inside back oanel to see what how much it was iced. For some reason the defrost cycle is not functioning properly. Put the unit back together and worked great but starting to see more ice on the back wall and vents are getting iced up.

OK first defrost the refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel covering the evaporator and lets look at the defrost element and defrost thermostat. If they are OK we may need to have a look at mother board mounted on back of fridg. Let me know when you are ready, Sea Breeze

Solenoidvalve not open


The cooling plate is icing up, sounds like the defrost element has failed, (Fan is hitting ice, hence the noise when shutting door) if there is ice building-up in the rear of the unit, either the defrost timer or defrost element has failed, Defrost the unit for 2 days with door open and NO FOOD inside. turn the unit back on, will work fine for a few days/weeks then return to problem. Solution points to Element, timer or thermo fuse, not costly to repair any of these,. Estimate $90-$120.Any further problems. Let me know PLEASE. Russ

My frigidaire gallery french door refrigerator is making ice very slowly. the water is coming out fine. It is only 4 weeks old. i got solutions from frigidaire from the valve to the water filter. Any...


Hi,
The theory to making ice is temperature, water, and ice mold to function. What are the temperatures inside the freezer currently. It must be below 15 degrees to function and prefer the freezer to be at 0 degrees to product effectively. Are you ice cubes solid or hollow? If hollow you can jam the ice inside the ice maker causing slow production. Rare to have a water valve problem this young be is possible. I would look at temperatures first than cycle time to determine the next step. In a perfect world, your unit should drop ice every hour to and hour and a half.
Good Luck

Ice at bottom of freezer


Make sure defrost drain is completely cleared of ice and anything else obstructing it. Pouring hot water in it is correct, but make sure it is going all the way through to defrost pan under unit.

Whirpool Side by Side making loud humming noise from freezer side


I had the exact same issue last night. I would press on the back panel long enough and the noise would go away only to return this morning at 4am. I finally got up took all of the bins and shelves out and found an very large accummulation of ice at the bottom (floor) and walls of the freezer. The ice accummulation was causing the rattling of the tubes in the wall of the freezer (I don't know what you call them), but they were frozen over on one side. I found this out once I took the back wall panel off of the inside of the freezer. I also found the drain hole back there and it was frozen over solid, as well as my ice dispensing unit at the top of the freezer. This whole problem began when I turned on the ice maker 3 days ago. I used my hair dryer and hot water to clear all of the ice from both areas and now it is nice and quiet. Don't know if the acccummulation is due to some defrost switch gone haywire, but at least the rattling is gone and my freezer is back to square 1 for the time being and I saved myself a visit from the appliance guy in the meantime. Took me a total of 1 1/2 hours to do it all.

Freezer way too cold - ice cream hard as a rock


The freezer may get as low as -18 degrees F or 0 F this is the point when life and bacteria stops growing.
Ice cream shouldn't be that cold unless it is whipped with air.
