Re: temperature

I had the same problem and when we looked at the back the fan was running very slowly. We replaced the fan and that wasn't it. Then we replaced the board, bought it online for 80 bucks and sure enough that was it. Whirlpool was willing to pay for half of the part if I had once of there technicians come out. I think they know the boards are going on these. Mine is a year and half old. I have read several other sites with people having problems with the board. If the side is very hot, like ours was than this may be it. We just ran a portable fan to the condenser until we got the board in..hope this helps

Re: temperature

This is a known problem with this refrigerator. The motherboard fails and the compressor does not operate properly. I have this refrigerator for 18 months and have had GE in to replace the motherboard three times and replaced it myself once. The last three times all occurred within three weeks. The last time the GE service man came he showed my wife how to change the motherboard and sent us a extra board. According to the service man, the compressor runs too slow to maintain freezer temperatures, but usually will maintain refrigerator temperatures. I contacted GE but the best they could do was give me half off on a new GE refrigerator. I will also pass along the recommendation from the GE service man, make sure the extended warranty never runs out.

Re: temperature

Check to see if sides of freezer compartment are also hot (and remain hot)

Re: temperature

I think you have a refrigerant gas leak. This is very common and another symptom will be that the compressor is nearly always running constantly.

This can really only be solved by a professional because of the equipment required.

First make sure your warantee is not expired.

Fridge temperature has suddenly dropped to 15

Check the door gaskets, condenser fan, refrigerator fan and the freezer fan. That should narrow down the problem.

GE side x side refridgerator temperature is

unlikely both temp.sensors will be faulty at the same time. Notice how different the internal temps.are compared to the acurate one you are measuring it against. Almost certain board is defective because incorrect info in the processor will tell the compressor/s to switch off before time.(hence not correct temp. all the time.) Suggest replacement.I normally replace probes as well to eliminate problems later..

GE Monogram will not accept freezer/fridge

Turns out the problem was because we didn't shut the freezer door tightly. The temperature re4set itself in about three hours. All OK and no expense :-)

Blinking temperature control

You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.

I have a 2 year old SMEG FAB 32 Fridge/Freezer and the freezer section has suddenly lost temperature. Upper fridge section is fine but freezer not. I have emptied, kept door shut, turned dial up but no success.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Wouldn't expect problems on a SMEG just 2 years old.

You could have a bad thermostat or the refrigerator could be low on Freon, make sure you clean off the exposed coils on the back of the fridge and underneath to free it from dust and dirt – use some type of a blower for underneath and the coils you can vacuum off or wipe off the coils, if not call a service tech to have a look @ the refrigerator – it might have a bad compressor

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling

we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone

Clicking Fridge

I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
