SOURCE: I have a GE model GSL22JFPH BS refridgerater and

Then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . There is a heater for the water dispensor tube , pt # WR49X10173 , which should keep this from happening again .

Refridgerator section reaches almost freezing point - lettuce, cucumber turns watery. How to fix?


Hello pravin5006

There are two likely very different scenarios... The first
I will cite is (rare & unlikely) the loss of REFRIGERANT...

It is still quite manageable... Requires specialty tools
and in-expensive SUPCO self piercing VALVES and
some good understanding of the DANGERS of
REFRIGERANT handling
...

Do not ADJUST the controls...
(try to make a note where they were)...
It may take days and lots of patience... I recommend
some inexpensive TAYLOR refrigerator thermometers to
get back to optimum settings.

MOST Refrigerators are not terribly complex... and
MOST cooling issues are caused by FROST BLOCKAGE.

Vague GENERALITIES to follow:
You did not REVEAL you MAKE & MODEL... (??)
but if you look very closely into the TYPICAL FAILING
REFRIGERATOR... you will LIKELY see FROST where
your air slots used to be...

A complete defrost... (use NO HOT AIR (none))...!!
Watch the DEFROST PAN and be prepared for an OVERFLOW
(towels, bucket ... wet/dry vac... would be smart).

If your doors are tight & in good alignment you will get another week of cooling... but it will be a CLEAR INDICATION your
DEFROST CIRCUIT is failing.

Choice here...
Repair it yourself or call a repair service.

I checked your HISTORY (1 question) and still see no clue
of any make or model... but if you get this far and want to
pursue the REPAIR... I will post some USA part sources below.

For simplicity ... I have assumed you are in the USA
ELSE...
Post your make, model and the word "spares"
on an internet search... (opportunities will abound).

Next time POST your make & model
(shorter, better information)... Hope this helps.

Temperature controls are not working. They are getting higher and wont adjust when you try to set them. They wont set

My fridge turns on, the lights work the motor is operating, but it is blowing warm air at maximum cold, both fridge and freezer. What could the issue be please?


Hello Mario...

I am quite impressed with the suggested answers to this trouble... Each one has SOME merit...

The total 3 (three) day defrost is ALWAYS a great idea.

The not so great news... if you have gone past all the AFOREMENTIONED and the warm air scenario persists...

Your issues are THREE (3) POSSIBLE huge: as in no or contaminated REFRIGERANT or NEAR CATASTROPHIC... as in defective COMPRESSER...

Depending on the age, cost & your personal love of the APPLIANCE (my '94 AMANA STAINLESS is a keeper)...

Now is the hour to weight the trouble & expense
of these pending repairs...
Time, SKILLS & MONEY... vs a whole new Refrigerator
(My OPINION: WiFi on a refrigerator is Bat-Squat CRAZY).

There are still COST EFFECTIVE ways to test repair.... evacuate & recharge the refrigerator... but it takes substantial knowledge and a great deal of caution. Environmental issues ... more IMPORTANTLY PERSONAL SAFETY issues are of great concern here. REFRIGERANTS ARE DANGEROUS ...!!

There are two basic ways to access & assess the refrigerant system... SUPCO self piercing refrigerant valves. Special knowledge & tools are required..

It would be completely understandable NOT to preceed
but refrigerators are not more complex than a regular CARs Air-Conditioning... and seriously cheaper to REPAIR.

Your MMAKE & MODEL 9especially REFRIGERANT type) are extremely CRITICAL here...

But you can get an excellent look at the UV dye & sniffers to detect leak, vacuum pumps to test & purge systems, GAUGES to test, assess & re-charge REFRIGERANTS... (etc., etc.) all on AMAZON (see below).

Hope this was helpful (I love refrigerators!!)

Exercise caution you get to keep the eyes, fingers & skin that can be COMPLETELY FROZEN (off) by careless handling!!!
(above statement not intended to be ALL INCLUSIVE of dangers present... (no even close)).

How To Install Bullet Piercing Valves To Charge Refrigerators Or Air...

POST "FLOOD" COMMENT:
OKAY... Sorry to hear about the FLOOD... Once you are sure everything has been dried... & IS clean


Click on my profile... my RECENT ANSWERS will come up... You need to focus on finding your defrost fault.. Also... we old folk call the "WD" in WD40... water displacement...

Take heart... electric issues caused by water can be fixed... Just might take TIME & FULL DISCLOSURE... of what we are REALLY working on.
You might also want to check all appliances...

Air drying is always best... use no heaters on your refrigerator (there ought to be one already
in there (carefully regulated to remain TEPID (soft plastic panels can easily be damaged with heat)).
General rule... never apply power to a wet circuit...!!

Okay... Whole different approach. We need to get the model number... then see if I can determine the low hanging circuit(s) to be a DEFROST TIMER or POWER CONTROL pack (circuit board)... (possibly more).

If power was applied wile anything was wet that can make thing a bit more complex (we'll just have to take notes)... otherwise it is clean possible to clean contacts... and check low circuits on heaters an/or dish-washers also.

Flooding can WILL cause corrosion (at least) and your defrost circuit MIGHT ALSO be on..
(running (shorted)).

The only impediments to finding out WHAT IS/IS-NOT working are the HAZADOUS VOLTAGES in the are we need to see... and a small fan that might also be in the condenser area.

You will need to take good pictures... so you can EVERY SCREW & WIRE exactly back where you found them.

Can you feel warmth in the freezer area?

Location of bullet piercing valve on sanyo sr4433s compact refrigerator


Does the unit have a manufactures process stub on the compressor casing. That is where I put piercing valves to add refrigerant. Remember that EPA does not allow piercing valves to remain on system and the hole it forms has to be brazed shut. So if it does have a process stub place the peircing valve close enough to the end so you have enough stub to pinch off to braze thehole shut.

If there is no process stub, then install piercing valve in a convenient location in the suction piping and pierce the line. Remove the refrigerant and install a "tee". On one leg of the "tee" install a schreader valve pressure tap and rebraze the joints. Perform and pressure and vacuum test to check for leaks and weigh in the correct amount of refrigerant. Once your proficient at this procedure, it should take about 60 to 90 minutes depending on obstructions around compressor.

Just a comment, low air flow on evaporator give that same indications as a low charge. Make sure the evaporator fan is working and you have good air flow through evaporator section.
Hope this helps

Where do you get tap to add freon


I always get my tap valves at www.apdepot.com. The best ones to use are bpv-31 bullet piercing valves, because they are capable of piercing a variety of line sizes, so your not limited to your tap location and find the most accessable spot.

Can this air conditioner have freon added? It's not cooling as well as it has in previous years.


Hello, yes the unit can be recharged but you need to install a piercing valve on tje low side of the system to charge in the refrigerant here is a link to where you can buy piercing valves. http://www.globalindustrial.com/g/hvac/parts/ac_accessories/Supco-Acces-Valves
