Question about GE Monogram® ZISS420DMSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Refrigerator side freezes sometimes

I have a GE monogram ZISW42DY refrigerator that has the Refrig side freezing sometimes. I replaced the AP2061715 (thermostat damper door) about a year ago too. Are these Thermostat devices troublesome? Also, I see that the sensing coil is wound up next the door - is it suppose to be right next the sensor? I also have a thermometer in the frig section too. I reads about 45 degrees F.
Any ideas in how to fix the frig side freezing?

There is an internal door between the fridge and freezer section that allows the freezer air to enter the fridge side to keep the fridge cold. Sounds like the internal door is stuck open. Steve

SOURCE: kitchenaid built-in refrig 15 yrs old cold freezer, warm fridge

it.s the frezer that makes the refer cold.the evap fan in the frezer moves that chilled air to the refer.if that fan is slow or any blockage inthe air ways it slows that process.Also the frezer should be close to 0 degrees if theres a defrost prob that would make fresh food warmer

Sounds like a faulty thermostat. Try replacing it with a known good one and retest.

Side by side ge refrig freezing food in refrigerator side temp control working since when turned to zero clicks off what could this be


Probably the temp control is defective and is defaulting to maximum. I would suggest replacing it to be sure.

My GE monogram refrigerator keeps freezing up. My repair man has replaced the thermistor and the control board, and neither fixed the problem. He told me to contact GE, but I can't seem to find a number to...


This might seem silly but sometimes having the Controls turned to max will cause a refrigerator or freezer to freeze up.

Another problem could be if there's a water input system that runs through the inside of the unit for ice-makers or water dispenser internally. It could be a broken/worn tubing that needs to be replaced. If there's any water running on the outside or condensation on the tube it would explain the extra water or water vapor that's causing the refrigerator to freeze up.

Does there seem to be a source of the ice, or any place that's specifically worse than others.

My refrigerator won't stay cold. The freezer is working but not the refrig side


I have the GE Monogram ZISB480 side by side. Once again I have your same problem of the freezer freezing (good), but the refrig does not go below 45-50. All the official repair guy did was do a quick 1 hour defrost. I did that also just two weeks ago and it was fine. Now it is not cold enough again. I just looked in the freezer using a mirror I was able to push a 2"x2" trap door open towards the fridge. It must be automated and malfunctioning. Why the heck the repair guy didn't work on that? This week I'll call for another repair job ($85 for him to just come to my door) and ask him to fix the trap door. -Bob

Water wont dispense but still makes ice. Also fridge side gets extremely cold no matter the settings and freezes stuff in the bottum drawers


Since your freezer control is the main thermostat , and your refrig control is only a damper , lower your freezer setting and turn the refrig control mid way . This will make the refrig run less , and keep the air flow moving , throughout the complete unit . When the airflow stops , by turning down the refrig control ( closing the damper ) , all the cold air will settle in the refrig section , thereby freezing everything in the lower section .
Since the water line runs thru the freezer door , too cold in the freezer section , will cause the water in the line to freeze . I would also suggest installing a dispensor heater ( pt. # WR49X10173 ) , which would hopefully avoid water line freeze , in the future . This part comes with installation instructions .

Our GE monogram refrig compartment is constantly below freezing.


2 possibilties most likely is a bad temp sensor it thinks its warmer in the refrig than it actually is. the next possibilty is a motherboard has gone bad in the unit.
