Question about GE PFS22SBSSS Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

Open Question

I am trying to fix the light in our GE Profile refrigerator PFCS1PJXC. Bought new switches and replaced both of them with no result. I unfortunately did not pay attention to the wiring and think that maybe I did not put the switches in correctly. Do you know which wires goes to which connector on the switch. The old switches had a copper and a gold plug. The new ones do not.\, but the letters C and NC. The two wires coming out of the refrigerator are purple and brown. Also replaced LED light and still does not work.

    Still trying to figure out why the LED light won't come on. Replaced the light and now the switches and still no luck. What else could have gone bad?

SOURCE: TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.

P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

SOURCE: GE ARTIC PROFILE REFRIGERATOR....INTERMITTENT HEATING

Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.

SOURCE: Can I replace the LED light in my refrigerator?

I am not aware of any special tools or proceedues require to replace a LED light bulb, however,...... LED bulbs are generally very long life bulbs (read est. 10 year life, minimum). There is at least one manufacturer which has had some issues with their LED bulbs, and it is possible that GE may have outsourced some manufacturing, so we can not rule out a bad LED, however, it is actually more likely that you have a problem with the board or a switch, in which case the service tech will have to find out why your LED is not lighting.

SOURCE: I have a ge profile fridge model # PDS22SHRBRSS needing help

Yes, you have to cut the wiring as the instructions stated. Not all the models have to have wiring cut, so read carefully to see if yours is one that needs to have the wiring cut. If it is not, then you have another problem, and you will have to let us know what the origional problem was before you replaced the board. If your model requires cutting, you may have damaged the main board by not doing this. Unplug the refer and follow the instructions carefully and test to see if it works. Good luck, Appliance Specialists.

SOURCE: Water filter replacement on a GE Profile Refrigerator

You should NOT have to turn the water off to replace the filter. I have the same refrigerator and it closes water line itself when you turn the filter and drop it down. If yours flooded, I can only imagne the valve that the filter opens when in place got stuck.

There is a valve on the wall behind your refrigerator which can be shutoff.

The old filter should be heavier as it would still have water in it. Turn them over one by so water can drain out. The one with the smallest amount of water should be the new one. I always use a sharpie and mark the filter with the install date... that way ou know when to replace and which is the old one.

Posted on Jun 05, 2010

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick reply. I've been mopping up and cleaning for the past two hours. Your solution makes perfect sense, as there was no mention of turning off the water. I'll move it out in the morning and turn the water to the frig off and then compare the two filters. Thanks for some good practical advice, a sharpie! Why didn't I think of that. Take care and thanks again. "

unfortunately these systems are very expensive to repair and most shops will not service them if repairs cost more than a new unit. However you could make sure to keep the coils clean and adjust the thermostat to its coldest setting to get as much life from this one before buying another one. hope this helps and good luck.

GE Refrigerator


If you have heating in the freshfood side there is only one possible. The light inside is staying on and allowing the bulb to heat up the refrigerator. To fix this you will need to replaced the door switch. To check simply unscrew the light bulbs and see if the problem goes away, or open the door and push on the door switch and see if the light is going off. Please let me know if this is not the problem and I will be happy to help. Please let me know if this did FixYa.
