I have a GE GSS25WTGA BB side by side Refrigerator..... the freezer compartment gets warm and thaws the ice then re=freezes and leaves a big block of ice ... I have already replaced the mother board and unscrewed the freezer's light bulbs ( thought maybe they were staying on) neither of these fixes worked...any thoughts ?

This could be a dozen different things causing this. Do you see ice build up on the back wall? Your freezer coil could be icing over and blocking fan air flow. This can be due to a bad fan, low freon.....

SOURCE: Ice building up in freezer

Due to the frosting up, The glass defrost heater broke. Any good tech knows this happens. The defrost heater must be replaced. If this is a GE side by side. The new replacement heater has dual elements. The standard heater that was put in them, was not large enough to defrost the coils fully. Replace heater and you should be fixed up. I would also replace the thermostat while you are in the freezer section they are only like 15 bucks and this way you will have a new defrost circuit.

poss answer is drain hole/vent blocked,as unit auto defrosts water/vapour collects at bottom and when unit swiches back on it freezes,poke out drain with thin wire with a small piece of cloth dipped in clorine bleach or blow out with air hose.do not use hot water to manually defrost/ clean drain holes every 6 months

SOURCE: Everything in the freezer has defrosted

Is there frost on the freezer panel? are the two motor and compressor running (freezer motor and condenser motor)? find this out 1st. this is nothing you did but if you are not mechanically incline at this point only a frig tech can properly check and tell you exactly what is it. theres are the things it might be...
compressor not working
condenser not running
freezer fan not running
thermostat not sensing temp.
stuck in defrost
heaters on too long
bi-metal shorted
timer not working
now if you paid alot for this frig at least get someone to look at it for a service call ($40-60) if it too high to repair then its time to get a new one

SOURCE: GE GSH25JFTA BB getting VERY warm on defrost

Good day,
Your machine should have a limit thermostat as well as the thermister. It may payto change it first before the motherboard.
It looks like this, mounted on the top of the coil.

If that fails, and the machine goes back to normal cooling until the next defrost cycle, I can think of nothing but the motherboard as the culprit.

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem


Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

GE refrigerator freezer water dispenser failure GSH25JFTA


Some have said that if you are fridge is still making ice, then your water line may be frozen. So you need to let it thaw out by leaving the freezer door open. Figure out somewhat to try and keep the cold air in by using plastic sheeting or something, until the line thaws. You can't dispense water with the door open, so reach up press the button that makes it think its closed and try to dispense the water..or just shut the door to test it out. I am going to try this when I get home today, because I am having the same problem on my GE model# GSH25JFTA BB.

Freezer not freezing & fridge warm at top and freezing at bottom.


Check and see if you have a fan that is not working. A condenser fan might just be your problem. The air is not circulating right. If this isn't the solution try turning the frig off for a couple of hours to see if it will correct the problem. BB

My Ge side by side freezer was thawing now it


Might just be a freezer thermostat gone bad by sticking in an open position. If that's the case you will be out of control in temp settings. Hope this has helped!!BB

GE side by side with ice and water in door


This is a problem with my GE side by side also. It only happens occassionally and there doesn't seem to be any fix. I've had GE repair service here more than once. It seems that the insulation in the door is insufficient to keep the water line from freezing up. Small wonder GE is part of this awful financial mess.

GE top freezer refrigerator


The air flow vents must be blocked. The refrigerator cools from the freezer through those vents, it does not cool independently. They may be clogged in the case with ice. Turn the fridge off and leave doors open for a few hours to let it thaw and it will probably start working.

Water dispenser not working but ice maker does


The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.
