Question about GE GTS22KBP Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE- GTS22WC refrigerator. Both the refrigerator and the freezer stopped cooling, We put it in the basement thinking it was no good, and after a few months we plugged it back in and it worked ok for about two weeks, then stopped again. Just plugged it in again and it is cooling again! The fans all work fine on it, lights are on,etc. Seems ok once again, but I know it will stop again if we can not figure out what the problem is.

    Check to see if compressor is starting as it should--One of the copper tubes attached to the compressor should feel very cold immediately after the compressor starts. (Mine is not starting consistently) The defrost element may be working BUT it could also be stuck in the defrost mode which will allow frzr and frige to warm up rather quickly (compared to a total power disconnect).

    we had a similar problem with a Frididaire Gallery. It stopped cooling, checked for on a whim, pulled the power, waited a few minutes, plugged it back in. It started working fine. Worked for 2 years and did it again. Then I knew what to do, power cycle fixed it again. Feels like a software issue in the controller - or maybe somebody put it in defrost mode by accident.

The auto defrost heat element is not working. When the ice buildup clogs the airflow the unit stops cooling. Once you unplug it and give it a chance to melt it works again. You need to have the defrost unit replaced.

Water on shelves?


This is a sign that your refrigerator is not defrosting properly. I you can I want you to unplug the refrigerator and inspect the freezer behind the panel in back of freezer. If needed defrost the evaporator coils with a hair dryer. You will need to have a multi meter or Ohm meter to do some of the test. On back of refrigerator is a circuit control board that while unplugged from wall I need you to examine for burn marks or loose solder connections on back and front sides. You can see a breakdown of parts by putting model number GTS22WCMBRBB into the model search feature at the link below. Let me know what you find and when ready I want to go through some test if you find nothing wrong with the control board. click link below Thank You, Sea Breeze

Bad odor in freezer


the only source for odor in a refrig is from food. check to be sure that nothing has gone bad in the refrig section as well as air circulates back from the fresh food section as well as the freezer. if you stil cant find odor source try charcoal or unscented kitty litter in a small container to help remove bad odors..
