SOURCE: GE model gss side by side refrigerator

I ASSUME YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE COILS BEHIND THE BACK OF THE FREEZER ..IF SO YOUR UNIT IS NOT GOING THROUGH THE DEFROST CYCLE BECAUSE OF A BAD HEATER OR BAD DEFROST TIMER OR BAD DEFROST T STAT .YOU CAN FORCE IT INTO DEFROST BY PUSHING THE FRESH FOOD DOOR SWITCH THREE TIMES IN 15 SECONDS IF YOU HAVE AN ADAPTIVE DEFROST TYPE OF DF CONTROL(ELECTRONIC TYPE).

SOURCE: freezer runs constantly. food freezes in bottom

I see this happen a lot on these models. The defrost control board is part of four operations. If you changed the Defrost control board then one of the two thermostats is not responding to changes in temperature settings. For freezer if turning the thermostat warmer should cause the compressor not to run as much and open the damper and regulate. If the only place the thermostat setting is placed to off and it responds only to off I would believe that thermostat is the reason. I believe you are on the right track to repair but if you have a look at the wiring diagram you see the connection and point I'm trying to make here. Let me place the diagram and send you a link shortly, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator side freezes


if the food in the fridge side is freezing it sounds like the damper door isn't closing,the way it works is cold air is produced in the freezer side,the evaporator fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge side and it blows through the damper assy. if the damper door isn't closing youll have sub zero air constantly blowing into the fridge sidethe part number is 5304482075 but it's around 200 dollars.you can go here to sears and look up the parts or call a tech in to check it out

My frigidaire side by side freezes


Hello orpheusingjap - From what you have describes it sounds like the damper door might be open causing the temperature to be too cold. Use a mirror to look at damper door at the rear of compartment and use a hair dryer on damper door to deice for 5 to 10 minutes. Allow 24 hours and if the temperature is still too cold, then I would have a professional look at the damper door for replacement.

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

The food on the refrigrator side is freezing. the water line is not working so i assume its frozen as well.


Hello Tina,

The problem with it freezing in the freshfood section is going to be because the air damper that opens and closes to let cold into the ref. section is stuck open and too much cold air is entering into the ref. compartment. This is a fairly common occurence with the GE refrigs. and by replacing the fresh food air damper which is located in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment it will open and close properly and not allow too much cold air to enter where upon it freezes everything.

Hello,

I sounds to me like too much cold air is entering the freshfood compartment and freezing the items their(disregard the icemaker as the problem) I dont know what model you have so i dont know if it hasa damper in the upper left corner of the fresh food section that is stuck open and allowing too much air cold air ..or if it doesnt have a damper and its the thermostat that is sticking and not turning off the fan that circulates the air but it will defiently be one or the other based on if it has a damper or not.
