Question about GE GSL22JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

GE side-by-side TFX26ZP

My wife and I just bought a GE side-by-side TFX26Z used. The seller said it worked fine and we had no reason to doubt her because she had apeared to be using it up until recently. After transporting it and cleaning it for an hour and a half, we plugged it in and then hooked up the water hose. The lights work and the water works, but it doesn't seem to be getting very cool or cold in either the fridge or the freezer respectively. It's emitting a steady hum so it sounds like it's working but I guess I'm just anxious to know that it works after all the hassle of moving it and cleaning it. There's a decal in the fridge that reads "Allow 24 hours for adjustments in temperature" so I suppose the refrigerator won't be open for business until tomorrow. I admit I'm in uncharted waters with this as I've always rented in the past and my biggest battles have been with tundra-like ice in freezers. I just really wanted to go buy some milk and ice cream. Here's hoping waiting is the answer. Tell me I didn't just buy a inconveniently configured cabinet.

If the compressor is shaped like a coffee can and not like a cantalope then yes..you probably just got took. I had to replace many "rotary" compressors on GE/Hotpoint refrigerators built in 87-88. I hope i'm wrong. good luck :)

if out of warranty you can try a simple "fix" . some microwaves are made with a simple fuse on the inside of casing- should be able to remove cover with 4-6 screws and then locate fuse- DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE! If in doubt replace the whole thing.

PS- if dusty inside ,use canned air(for computers or cameras)

Everything works except when used today no heating



If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the door switch.

The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

We bought a GE Freezer last week and had it installed 7/8/08. Today (7/09/08) the sides and top are extremely hot. Is this because its a brand new freezer? It's located in our garage.


Talked to the seller at Home Depot who said to wait 48 hrs. Problem should be solved. Also in the handbook furnished by GE they mentioned the reason. Problem solved. Thanks anyway. George
