Question about GE (GTS16BBS) Top Freezer Refrigerator

Too much water in bottom holding pan

We received this fridge a while back - it's from the 70's.  It's worked fine for the past 4 years, but it recently started producing huge amounts of water and daily fills up the holding pan at the bottom of the fridge.
What could be causing it to produce so much water?

This is not a problem..This happens sometimes when the humidity is high...Another possibility is that your fridge is set to low..try setting it to medium or high if required and it will be done for..

Fridge not very cold


Have you ever cleaned the heat exchanger radiator at the back of the fridge? They get choked with dust and this cuts down efficiency and can cause poor operation or a constant running pump. If you haven't cleaned the heat exchanger i suggest you do so, if you have done this please let me know.

So, recently my power was knocked out by a storm. It was out for about a week. We kept our refrigerator cold by not opening it and putting bags of ice inside. When my power was reinstated, the fridge...


All that ice melted and the water ran down under the refridg into the motor compartment. If lucky there may be a pan in there for small amounts of moisture...but in this case you probably over filled it.
You will have to get behind fridge at the bottom, remove the small panel near the floor & look & clean it out.

Hello - I've had my SKYFi2 receiver for about 4 1/2 years. For the past 6 months it cuts in and out, as in, plays the station that I'm on, then it stops and just says "antenna". ...


Hi Kathy,

It sounds like its the antenna, although it could be the docking station itself, or even the receiver. The best way to narrow it down is by testing against other equipment (if you happen to have other docking stations and or antennas) If it produces the same result you know its the radio. If you swap antennas and it works, obviously the antenna; and the same goes for the docking station. You can find replacements at tss-radio.com.

My 5 year old GE GSH22JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator recently stopped cooling. I noticed a build up of frost on the freezer, so unplugged the fridge and let the ice melt away. After this,...


The problem you describe is that your defrost circuit has failed. The fridge should stop the compressor periodically and turn on the defrost heater to melt the frost buildup. Since the frost in building up on your coils, the fan can't blow the cold air into the fridge compartment. It defrost is controlled by a module that turns on the heater. Most of these failures have to do with the defrost heating element burning out. It can be replaced by someone who has some mechanical ability.

The coil and heater is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the panel in the back. You can obtain parts from appliance repair outlet or online like appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com.

It's about aproduct informaion


Yes Samsung does provide satellite receivers in its product family,

Here are some samples

DSB-B350V

DSB-B350W

DSB-B270V

DSB-150F

These receivers can be seen on Samsung website promoting Sat Receivers

http://www.samsung.com/global/business/settopbox/productSubType.do?ctgry_type=37&ctgry_subtype=50


The receivers produced today have a huge capabilities compared to what was offered 30 years ago when the craze started. These were the isolated communities that started to recognize the difference between Cable and Sat entertainment. You could freely tune into raw signals mobile units sent out like football games and similar new mini casts. Now the receivers along with proper reception capabilities, your reception dish and the quietly of your reception head. It all depends on what you want, 100 channels or 3000 channels?

The manufactures like Samsung have been providing the ability to receive NTSC & PAL signals and watch in the format you utilize depending the region of the world you are. Except for the US Market, this is because the entertainment originated in the US so why offer something not needed. Now with the worldwide internet and the ease of manufacturing a signal unit able to operate on any voltage system

110-240 at either on 50-Ghertz or 60-Ghertz cheaper and the simplicity can produce a higher quality dependable product. So even the US market is able to benefit finally from conversion capable reception from either DVD players or Sat receivers, including DVR recorders. As for your Net-Share or being able to receive free signals, Samsung is able to receive general signals provided free, not really difficult to set up a system to be capable of this, but you are still limited as to the actual amount of channels available. I think you’re more interested in receiving your entertainment without the annoying charges and monthly key updates necessary to view a provider’s decision on what it rebroadcasts from the entire amount of original broadcast they actually receive.

2004 VT600 AND HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE CLUTCH


It depends on the amount of abuse and the attention to maintance the bike has received in the past. Clutches can last 15+ years or can be destroyed in a few months of hard (abusive) use.

In this case, you might investigate simply changing the oil. Fresh oil sometimes makes a huge difference - especially with a wet clutch. If the oil has been changed regularly and recently, it's possible the clutch is in need of replacement or possibly a simple adjustment. With the lever all the way released, you should have a small amount of free-play in the lever before resistance is felt. 10MM at the end of the lever, or about 1-2MM at the cable end of free-play is desired.

If this change happened suddenly it's possible that something has failed internally. If so, I do not advise that the bike be run until it is serviced.

Water collecting on bottom of 13 year old fridge


All refrigerators create water when their cooling coils shed frost build-up - that water typically collects in a tray under the fridge body through a drainage tube that exits from a collection trough inside the fridge under the coil through the back of the fridge housing.

First check the tray to be sure it is not accumulating food particles which ultimately can produce molds. Clean any water from that tray first, then look for the tube exiting on the back of the fridge see whether there is any moisture at the end of the tube under the fridge and notice whether the tray has had any recent moisture. Chances are the tube is either plugged or similarly any connector through the fridge wall.

Now, be CAREFUL not to puncture the hose or the connector with a sharp instrument however the drain path must be cleared. Try blowing through the drain inside the fridge with a straw, then add a small amount of baking soda into the collection trough, adding a small amount of water to dissolve and allow this to gradually drain out normally. Only detach the outside tube if the problem has not been resolved in this manner. The tube can be replaced easy enough, the connector through the back is another question - see you parts dealer if it has been compromised.

Good luck!
