Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer frost then loss of cooling

A week ago our GE Profile PDS22SFSDRSS accumulated frost in the freezer, pretty much over night. A week later we left for the weekend, returning to a 60 degree refrigerator and a 30 degree freezer. Diagnostic tools? Cannot set the refrigerator below 35 (so not understanding these 5 settings on the fridge).

There is a block of ice that is causing the air to not flow across the coils as it should. This is why the temp has risen. You can do a manual defrost by un-plugging the unit over night but I would call out a ref tech to check the defrost timer and the freon level. Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

I have a GE Profile side by side refrigerator. It has not been cooling very well, it stays between 38-41 degrees. also the ice maker doesn't make a lot of ice and the cubes are smaller in size.


Ice maker want work if freezer bus not around 0F. Are fans running? Is condenser coils clean? Is there any frost build up on inside back freezer wall?

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

No cooling


Both refrigerator and freezer operate from one system. Air from freezer cools refrigerator. Check back wall of freezer for frost buildup. If frost is evident on the back wall of the freezer it indicates a defrost system problem.
