My GE refrigerator was cycling on and off and then just quit working completely. Is there something I should know or just buy a new one? Thanks! Debi

    Well, I'm singing praises! It turns out the GFC had tripped for some reason and once it was reset, the fridge worked great again. Who knew a tripped GFC would cause the motor to cycle on and off then shut down after quite some time? Not me! Thanks for your input!

The on and off can be a blockage in the system or the motor can be damaged

How can I fix my fridge?


think twice. You replace this, but it still is a 14 year old fridge. Next week something else can go down. The newer ones use less power to cool the same amount.
Buy a new one, you have warranty, and in its lifetime it will save you money on the electricity bills.

Water dispenser is not working no water dispenser


If the light is dimming when you try to get ice (dimming then getting bright in cycles) then thisis a common problem and GE will fix it. The Main circuit board on the back goes bad causing the ice\water dispenser to quit working then eventually the fridge quits cooling. Call 800-386-1215 and tell them the problem. There is a recall for the board

GE WPSE4200A0WW model won't shut off or stop.


I am pretty sure it si not the pressure switch. pressure switch controls the amount of water per load. It appears your control panel has failed. You have many parts in this panel, however you can buy a complete panel and change it out.

GE fridge doors open and close


Raise the legs up on front till the machine tilts slightly towards the wall. The weight of the doors will then be shifted towards the machine instead of away from it. Only a slight adjustment is needed and should have been done by the delivery guys. A $5 tip would have gotten that done, you must be a cheapskate.
Source: I used to deliver them before I learned how to fix them. LOL

Defrost cycle is not working on Amana model BX21Te


had similar problem with a ge fridge. remove the back panel if you can and clean out the dust and dirt. this may help, if not, your fridge may need a part such as a component board that controls the defrost cycle. that's what i had to do with my ge, it cost about $150 but i had some other work done as well. it sucks but it's a lot cheaper than a new fridge. good luck.

Problem with ge profile fridge


sorry. ge had several fixes for this problem,unfortunatly none worked
i worked for ge and have tried everything. you have done the right thing, buy the way i have to defrost mine today!
ps make sure it is completely dry before you turn it on. for your info.
this problem started after they moved the evaporator from the rear wall to the floor of the freezer the new evaporator allows too much air flow over the fan thus your problem
