I have a GE GSH25JFTA CC refrigerator and it is not cooling properly. What should I check or replace?


Depending how long the power was off you may have an ice blockage in the freezer. Normal cooling causes the freezer coils to build up frost and snow coating all over the coils. A normal defrost cycle melts that frost/snow off and keeps the coils clear so the fans can move air through the coils.During the power outage the frost may have started to melt wetting the snow. If the refrigerator then came on and re-froze the wet frost/snow into a solid block of ice, the normal defrost cycle would not be able to clear that solid ice out. So it may be blocking the air flow. Remove freezer back panel and see if there is ice back there. If yes--use something like a hair dryer to melt everything out until it is completely clear. Make sure the fans are running also.

How do I defrost my frozen freezer?


the defrost circuitry is not defrosting the unit due to a defectice defrost heater,thermostat or adc control,shut it off and let it defrost manually or use a hand held hair dryer to assist in the manual defrost,then remove the inside back wall cover in the freezer in there you will find the defrost heater and thermostat,have towels handy as when you manually defrost it you will have a lot of drainage and the catch pan in the back that catches this water will most likely overflow

you need the defrost heater replaced by the sounds of it.

The fridge stops cooling because the freezer coils freeze up


If you are saying the coils in the back of the freezer section are becoming solid with a light snow and ice, and not allowing air flow, you have a defrost problem. If you unplug and let it all melt with the door open it will run ok for about three or four weeks depending on humidity and use.(you also have to manually defrost it to find the problem to fix.

To repair you need to replace one of three parts the bimetal thermostat, the defrost control, or the defrost heating element. Can not tell you without testing circuit with a meter. It the bimetal has a pushed up top it has got water in in and failed, otherwise you need a meter..... good luck

Freezer suddenly is creating mounds of freezer "fluff"


That snow is the condensate build up on the evaporator coils behind the rear panel of your freezer. Normally the freezer will go into defrost about every 10 hours and this snow will melt and drain out the defrost condensate line below the evaporator and go to a pan under your refrigerator and return back to the air inside your home. I believe your freezer is missing the defrost cycle either because the controls for the defrost are defective or the defrost heater and defrost thermostat is defective. I would be watching for an increase in refrigerator temperatures soon, due to loss of defrost. We will need to unplug and examine the evaporator coils behind the rear wall of the freezer. If frozen or covered with snow then defrost with a hair dryer and lets check the defrost heater and all its related components. Sea Breeze

Maybe but there is also a thermister in the defrost system that might be bad. The thermister is a small, white, barrell shape and is as big around as a pencil, It has 2 wires going in it and is attached to the top of the coils in the freezer.

Freezer is producing"snow" and freezer burning everything


AFTER A DEFROST,HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT THE DOOR RUBBER. IT MUST BE 100% SEALED FOR A FREEZER. (SHOULD ALSO HEAR A SLIGHT VACUME WHEN DOOR IS SHUT WHEN UP NTO TEMP).ALSO MAKE SURE MOTOR IS SWITCHING OFF AT +/- 20C (TEMP).IF ALLOWED TO RUN CONTINUOUSLY TEMP WILL PULL DOWN TO CREATE EXCESS FROST.
