Question about GE Monogram ZISS420NRSS 42" Built-In Side-By-Side Refrigerator (ZIS-S420NRSS, ZIS S420NRSS)
Hello, we hope you can help. our compressor is extremely loud and knocking and its very hot. we have only check and cleaned the (radiator looking) thing once. When we check it it looked clean. it's difficult to get to without pulling the built-in unit out. i look at the filter (radiator thing) with a light and mirror and it looks pretty clean. any guesses as to why the compressor is so loud and very hot. poor thing is crying out "im dying, help"

The drain for a GE bottom mount refrig is located under the plastic panel at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment under the crisper drawers. There are two plastic pieces, one is about six inches long and runs the width of the refrig compartment which is right at the door seal. This piece is held on by two plastic tabs located approximately an inch from each end. By inserting a small srew driver under the panel and lightly prying up you should be able to pull the panel straight out. The the other plastic panel can be easliy pulled out. Under the styrofoam cover you will see the drain behind the evaporator fan. It is a two inch by four inch metal valley pan at the back wall which feeds to a black pipe at the bottom and in the back of the refrigerator. If you are having problems with ice clogging the drain and stopping the fan blades from turning, chances are it is either the defrost thermostat (mimetal switch) or the defrost timer.

Make sure that the defrost timer is not stuck in defrost mode also the compress may be stuck. you can purchase a compressor booster kit from your local appliance parts store for about $15.00.

Somtimes they are mounted to the top of the compressor,you will have to pull the fridge out and take the panel off of the back at the bottom.
