Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I had my GE side by side for about 2 years. Things have been okay until a couple of months ago. Temp. is fine and then once or twice a week the ice starts melting and things start thawing. A couple hours later the temp goes back up and everything is fine for a few days. Any help would be most appreciated.

Hello, I can help you.
The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

YOUR DEFROST TIMER MAY BE BAD OR THE HEATERS ARE BAD. WHAT HAPPENS IS THE EVAPORATOR IS FROZE OVER WITH ICE AND CAN'T TRANSFER THE COLD . UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FOR A FEW HOURS (HAVE RAGS AND MOP READY) AND IT WILL WORK AGAIN TEMPORALLY . THE LESS YOU OPEN THE DOORS THE LONGER IT WILL LAST.. BACK IN THE DAY IT WAS CALLED DEFROSTING THE FRIDGE AND WAS DONE ONCE A MONTH OR SO

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft


Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

Check the back wall of the freezer for a ice buildup.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
That will cause the temps you report.
Also, check the freezer fan motor.
Is it running?
Also check the condenser fan motor at the compressor. Is it running?

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!

Ice maker stopped working


are the "fingers" of the icemaker pointed toward you and slightly up? if not the icemaker is internally broken . is the red light to the right blinking twice and then a one second pause? if not the emmitter is broken. is the black hose coming from the ceiling blocked with ice ? if so the water vave is broken allowing water to seep in hose and freeze. hope this helps.
