Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We just moved into a home with a 3 year old GE side by side refrigerator (model# GSS 25LGMB BB, serial# VA 412740). It works but it's not as cold in the fridge section as it should be and we have it on the coldest setting. The freezer part works but it's doing the same thing. It takes about a day or so for the ice trays to become ice. We haven't even used the ice maker because it's not cold enough. All of our frozen juice is cold but not frozen. It was turned off for about 3 months before we moved in. Our garage fridge did the same thing. What can we do?

Ok, this is a temperature control board malfunction. this board control the temp throughout the box and , if it is unstable and unable to regulate the temp, it will produce erratic fluctuations within the box itself. simply replacing this board will fix this issue.

Check the compressor relay. All fans should be running when the compressor is except during post dwell. In post dwell the compressor and fan con on but the inside ones do not come on for a specified time. SEE ADC how it works.

GE Refrigerator-Freezer side works fine/Refrigerator side not ok


You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the inside back panel of the freezer. See if there is ice built up. If so, you have a problem with the defrost. 85% of the time, it's caused by a bad heater. It could be the termination thermostat, timer or fan. If the ice is built up. Take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. If you want, you can now check the heater and termination thermostat. It's a closed switch that opens on the rise. If you fix it your self or not, To save your food. You can replace the panel and turn the fridge back on, it will operate correctly for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to either get the part and fix it or for someone to get out and repair.

sounds like either your fan is bad or a wire may have burned off of it. Follow the wires forthe fan back to where they make the junction with the compressor wires. when ever the compressor runs your right that the fan needs to run. If you have a meter you could ohm out the fan and see if the motor windings are indeed bad. a reading of infinite would tell the tale.go out and spend 15 or 25 o us and get a new condenser fan motor after you remove your old one and make sure that the one that oyu get is the same. and replace it. Thanks for using FixYa and don't forget to rate this answer please. Happy New Year!!!!!!

GE GSS 22KG SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR 6 YEARS OLD


The codensor fan is not running. I have the same problem. I had the fan replaced a year ago for the same problem, so I can't tbelieve it's the fan. I am guessing something on the circuit board is not letting the fan kick on. I don't have a definite answer yet, but the fan not running is the main issue you are having.

Defrost issues


If it's around 2-3 years old, my first guess would be the heater is bad. The GSS models have problems with the heater almost always about that time.

Test the heater and the defrost thermostat for continuity with a multimeter. Whichever one doesn't get continuity is bad and should be replaced. If they are both good and the evaporator fan is running like it should, it will be the main control board located on the back of the unit.

Let me know if you have any other questions about this issue.
