SOURCE: layer of frost on the bottom surface of ice maker

during periods of high humidity and or high use, it is not unusual to notice frost on surfaces in the freezer. the ICM is susceptible due to it being metal and having warm(compared to freezer temp) water in it. make sure the doors ar closed tight and nothing is stuck in the gasket area.

Hello,
The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons The fan or blower has failed. The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again. The second reason can be more difficult. 1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective. 2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good. The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device. If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things. The fan or blower The timer device The electric heater coil By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it. Hoping that this will help in solving the problem...

SOURCE: My GE model # GSS25WGPDWW

We have here the parts diagram for your model. The temperature sensor is part no 241 for refrigerator and 243 for freezer. The sensor part code is the same for both. The one you should replace is the freezer one no 243. As you can see you need to remove all stuff from freezer lower section and then evaporator plastic covers and the sensor is on the top part behind evaporator.

SOURCE: Have a GE refrigerator side by side came home electronic display was out, food compartment was warm, ice melted in freezer, food thawing but lights were on . What's happening no motor sounds run

Without your model number I can't give you a part number but I can tell you the part. GE refridgerators have what they call a main dome control board. This is located on the back of the machine, usually closer to one side or the other and about halfway up the machine. This board really controls everything, even as far as the dispenser in the door. I personally think this is a poor design, even though they look awesome cosmetically. Locate your model number, usually in the refridgerator side somewhere, and go to www.repairclinic.com to order the part. This is becuase they have a return policy that no one can beat. If you install the part and it doesn't work they will take it back and refund you, where as any other part distributor have a no return policy on electronic parts. Good Luck, but you won't need it. This is an easy repair.

ICE MAKER


to solve the frozen food problem, turn the temp back to 4. this should be the factory recomended setting. the only dispensing crush ice is probably a bad solinoid. you will find this behind the back wall. it engages to lift the thin metal rod on the bottom of the ice bucket to dispense cubed ice. and the ice being frozen in the bucket is probably a bad ice flapper in the door. it's letting warm moist air into the ice bucket that is freezing

I have a GE side by side freezer/refrigerator. The


When you say "The items in the freezer are cold with some ice on them. I have tried emptying the ice tray, but that does not help." Is there literally ice from the ice bucket dripping on the food and refreezing, or is there a layer of frost on the food? the noise you are hearing is most likely due to the evaporator fan motor running at alternating low and high speeds. This is a variable speed motor, but there could be quite a few reasons why the motor is not rotating at regulated speeds. the fan motor itself, a faulty thermistor, you could also have an issue with your main control board, or least of all a wiring issue.
You would be wise to have it inspected by a reliable refrigerator repair service, to at least determine what the problem is for certain.

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?


On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

Freezer compartment not cooling


Di a total defrost and remove the back wall cover from the freezer. Look for ice buildup in the cooling fins. If the air channel is blocked, you won't get proper freezing.

GE stainless Side by Side doesnt cool enough


I had that situation several times until I notice bad wire connections on the defrost element. It may be in the defrost time circuit also. I would watch this closely and be prepared to have a competent service technician be there to service the your fridge when if needed to prevent food loss in the event the problem gets worse, Thanks Sea Breeze
