SOURCE: PTS25LBM GE Profile Defrost cycle messed up

The GE Profile Refrigerator has circuit boards and sensors are in the freezer that sends a signal to the circuit board to begin and end the defrost cycle. It is very possible the sensor or the circuit board are defective and will need replaced. I will help you solve this if you like. This refrigerator is complex and will take more discussion with you to complete the repair, I am here to help, let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

What temperature should freezer be set


Set at 0. That is the Fahrenheit setting equivalent to 32 degrees Celcius; the temperature at which matter freezes.

Refrigerator Tip!


Don't set your refrigerator's temperature too low. The colder it gets the more it costs to run. Set the refrigerator's temperature to between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit (3 to 6 degrees Celcius) and your freezer to between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-17 to -15 degrees Celcius).

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

What should the temperature be on the non frozen side


Hi

We use Celcius here in Australia but I looked up the conversions.

Optimum temperature for your fridge is 3 or 4 Degrees Celcius. (37.4F to 39.2F)
Optimum temperature for your freezer is -14 to -16 Degrees Celcius. (3.2F to 6.8F)

My GE Adora seams to be breaking down. Freezer is not freezing and temperature in both, Freezer and Refrigerator is dropping. HAVE reset the temperatures to GE's recommendation of 0 Degrees and 38...


One thing you can do is make sure condenser coils have plenty of area around them (nothing lying against refrigerator) to prevent air flow. If possible vacuum and clean condenser coils and make sure freezer door is completely closed.

How much celcius is 32 fahrenheit?


32 Deg F. = 0 deg. C.
The following formulas apply in general:
Tc = (5/9) x (Tf-32); Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degreesFahrenheit.

Example: 40 deg. F minus 32 = 8, 8 x 5 = 40, 40 divided by 9 = 4.44 deg. Centigrade.


To go the other way:

Tf = [(9/5) x Tc]+32; Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit

Example: -10 deg. C x 9/5 = -18; -18 + 32 = 14 deg. F

What temperature should my maytag side by side freezer be set to it has an ice maker and water dispenser thanks


Your refrigerator temperature should be between 35-40 degrees F, the freezer should be 0-8 degrees F. Both of the control settings should be in the middle, so if its on a scale of 1-9, 5 is middle, if its on a scale of A-J, E or F would be the middle, if its a temperature setting, 37 and 0 is normal setting.

The freezer temperature changes sporadicaly. It


The temperature would charge due to change of cycles in the refrigerator operation. For example, the temperature would slowly rise if the compressor has shut off. Also, the temperature would rise significantly during the defrost process. A heater is activated at the evaporator coil to thaw the ice that forms there. This heat would transfer to the freezer unit and would cause the temperature to go up.

As long as the cycles are constant, and the temperature does not rise significantly and keep rising for a long period, there is no problem.
