Question about GE PDS22LBN Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE PFS22MISBWW is a piece of junk

I see the same problems. Freezer temp fluctuates way too much
in summer months. Seems to depend on ambient temp and humidity.
Other problems. Compressor failed after 3 months. Replaced under warranty. Plastic parts break way too easily. Control board troubles, LEDs now stay off if fans are running. Today cooling seems very very
poor. Freezer above freezing. Maybe something else now has died.
From what I see on the web GE fridges are junk, lots of complaints similar to my troubles. More troubles in two years with GE than the past two fridges I have owned over last 30 years.
(Whirlpool and Kenmore).

One doesnt like to hear it but possibly cut your losses and look for a less complicated fridge with minimum electronics.

I would like to know the correct setting for the fridge and freezer


Setting? Most fridge/freezers have a crude system of setting the temp. and this seems to be dependent upon ambient. For a few pennies they could set the temp. accurately. However, but most peeps just turn it up/down until it's "about right"
The temp. for your freezer will depend upon the length of time that you wish to keep things. Check out freezer stars online. However they tend to have pre-set temp.
For the fridge, this will depend upon what you want to keep in it. but usually 4C is pretty good. You need to get a thermometer, put it in a glass of water (this irons out fluctuations). And check it after an hour. Adjust a little and check again. Repeat until happy.
Note that a cold room can prevent a fridge operating, so be aware of this.

GE Profile PFS22MISBWW not cooling, power/lights on. LED & Fan off


This is a common problem with the GE Profile. In most cases this is caused by failure of the motherboard. If you would like a manual, part numbers and assistance on how to repair please let me know because the instructions are detailed and a lot to Wright if you are only wanting to know what is wrong.

Can this GE TFX side by side be used as an extra frig in a garage that gets very hot in summer


most (not all) f/f can be used in ambient temps from about +5C to +35C,but use a seperate thermometer to keep the interior temps at +5C for a fridge and -18C for a freezer.

I have a 3 yr old ge Profile side by side refridgerator model #psc23sgrdss with the following problem. on 3 occasions in the last 3 wks I've found the temp. in the refrig section very high ( 56 degrees and...


I had same issue this past week. Refrigerator up to 45 freezer up to 15. Ice would melt and then everything would get cold again. Ice formed on everything. Next thing you know it was warming up again. I knew the rubber seal on door flap that opens to let ice out warped during summer months because I keep it 78 in summer. Had that replaced today. Temperatures have gone back to normal and stayed ALL DAY (knock on wood). Check door flap seal sticking your hand up making sure you don't push in the water tab. You should be able to feel if it is warped/wavy like an old LP or not. Good Luck.

Will freezer work in low ambient temperature (i.e. 26'F)? I have a GE refrigerator/freezer (c. 1983) in a cabin which gets winter temps around 25 degrees. I found the freezer contents had melted and then...


The compressors are rated for ambient temp. and most refrigerator compressors are rated for abour 50 degrees F

to answere your question yes the ambient temp is a problem.

And as for the Thawing, the refrigerator will go into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs and turn on the heater inside the freezer for about 30 min.

You can also cause damage to the seal system and the compressor because the oil will become slugish inside the compressor.

In other resarch I found that because of the ambient temp the freon gas (mostly the newer freon's) won't work corectly because they stay in liqued form.

My frig. in the garage.. The freezer works great in summer months but in winter months it doesn't. Why is that?


Good day,
That is normal. The thermostat that runs the whole machine is located in the refrigerator compartment.
When it reaches normal temperature, it shuts off. In winter months that may mean as long as 12 hours or more. Thus not enough running time per day to keep the freezer near it's normal temperature.
Engineers design domestic refrigerators to be in an area comfortable to humans. Normally 70 degrees or higher. Thus your problem.
The only solution is to bring the machine inside.
Sorry.

Greetings bkbkbt,

Many times this behavior is an early indicator that your unit either needs freon or might have a compressor issue. I would advise contacting a repair person before this problem gets worse.

Thank you,
