Question about Refrigerators

Control panel failure

Hi I have an Admiral fridge / freezer (mod/no Gc2224GEKB ser/no 10285638EX ) and I replaced the water filter, I then pressed the lock and water buttons for three seconds as per the instructions. All the lights on the front control panel have gone off and nothing responds when any of the buttons are pressed except when pushing a glass against the button for the ice dispenser the motor in the ice dispenser kicks in. I can't think what I have done to upset the panel and I hope you can help please? Kind regards Dave

Have you tried unplugging and plugging the fridge back in? This may reset the control baoard.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advise. Yes! I have done that several times hoping it may work. The problem started after changing the filter and the lights went out over a few days"

    Add a CommentThe problem I have is a little more complex, possibly with a faulty pcb?

  • Ty Roshdy Apr 13, 2014

    That is possibility. But the first thing to do is try the unplugging trick first

    No one likes Monday, and I am determined to get to the bottom of this problem. Starting with ameter to check if there is power getting to the pcb, then checking if the solenoid valves are ok,next -wel I will cross that bridge when I get there . Thanks again to all......dave

SOURCE: Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: Admiral Fridge Freezer

We had thought this was a free service...??? Yes, we fixed it ourselves, after trial and error. We pulled out the ice bin and there is an arm that is moves back and forth beside it. It had frozen up. That is the ice crusher. Thaw it out and it is fixed. By the way, the above posting was not by us--ours stated that our ice crusher did not crush ice anymore. Instead, cubes came out...

I have an admiral gc2224gekb side by side. The ice machine isn't producing ice and also the fridge is freezing up


First, check to see if the airflow is blocked at the back of the fridge compartment as this also may cause the lower items to freeze. Fridge freezing is usually the malfunction of the damper swing door or the circuit controlling it. A failure of the temperature sensor in the fridge could be the cause. We just had ours replaced this year [on extended warranty]

Hi i have a fridge freezer model no GC2224GEKB,i have noticed that the refrigeration side has started to freeze even though i have it set to 3oc.


I just answered the same question so I've copied you into it hope you don't mind.
A common problem to this is the damper (vent from freezer) is bad or just stuck open, try defrosting it and adjusting the position so that you reduce the amount of cold air going into the fridge, hopefully it'll just be stuck in the open position and you well have no further problems. Always here to help.. Richard.

I have an admiral GC2224GEKB


You may have to open the door to let the dispenser thaw since it's in the door.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Admiral - GC2224GEKB


Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
