JH, did you notice if the freezer back panel was full of frost first time it started thawing? If so you may have a defrost problem. I've had 4 of these control boards (jazz boards) fail on this model in the last week. Behind the front grill, there should be a tech sheet that will show you how to run the componet tests at the control board. Part number for the board is 12002339. This board controls compressor, defrost, damper and fans. Catriver.

Check and clean the condenser. Unplugging the system allows it to cool off. when you plug it back in it will cool until the heat rebuilds if not rejected through the condenser. Make sure the condenser fan comes on when the compressor runs. A faulty fan motor will cause the same type of problem.

SOURCE: kenmore elite 596 73503201 no cooling in top compartment

if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.

Hi. Our GE GSH25JSDD SS side by side drive just stopped freezing, cooling. The fan is on inside freezer and lights, and motor down on bottom, back is running. Drain is clear. Won't cool down.


I need someone to feel the top of the compressor. Is it cool, hot or too hot to keep your hand there? Usually on GE models like yours the=> WR55X11072 Main Control Board is the problem along with the start relay, overload and run capacitor. GE Refrigerator Model GSH25JSDD SS Parts

This unit has issues with the evap fan freezing up. If you heard a grinding noise coming from freezer, fan froze up. Unplug unit, open freezer door and if you have a box fan, point it into freezer for a couple hours. Be sure to unplug fridge
