You need to address the bad magnetic seal on the freezers door. Replace if nessesary. Sometimes a door adjustment (hinges) can improve the seal as well.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

Mbf2256keq1 bottom freezer back wall of freezer gets covered in ice and refrig doesn't get cold. We have to shut off for a day to let it defrost but will only last a couple of months until it does it...


Dear friend! Most of the customers are not advised by supplier how to use fridge and maintain.
Please keep thermostat at 5 degree or less little. If you keep temp in minus will make over freezing and also defrost timing will be after long time. It will create over ice formation around the freezer by which the freezer fan will be blocked or disturbed to work. Resulting to less or no temp in fridge compartment. Please ensure, thermostat,defrost timer and heater are working properly. Thanks.

Ice keeps building up in freezer. Then the refrigerator stops cooling. You can get the ice off the vents in bottom back of freezer and it will start cooling again but only last a couple days before it...


Your freezer coil needs a good defrost. You are getting only a little bit of the ice off. It stops cooling because the ice acts like a insulator over the coil so it is unable to cool. Was to get this done is to empty it out and shut if off and leave the door open or maybe a hair dryer or even so warm water.
I hope this helps.

My model is ARB 1914 CC nine years old.


your "damper vent door" located between the refrigerator and freezer compartments is frozen open or the cold adjustment contron in the refrige is bad and not powering the door as you change the temp set for the refrige and leaving it open,if the door is frozen from ice/frost just de-ice it with a hair dryer and then set the temp adjust and see if it opens and closes with any adjustment

Side by Side Refrig./Freezer ices up and shuts off


Good day,
You said it was iced up. That is an indication the defrost system is not working. The thermostat (round Disk??) if it popped out is probably due to swelling. Replace it.
Since the machine is empty, unplug and leave the doors open for 24 hours.
1. Air sensing thermometers will rise rapidly when the door is open. Not a trusted method.
2. The compressor will not run because you open the door. there is a time delay for refrigerator thermostats to react.
3. Leaving it unplugged with the doors open will guarantee that hidden ice in supply and return chutes has completely melted. IMPORTANT.
Below is a good tutorial on defrost systems.
Hope this helps , but if you need to post back please include make,style and complete model number.

Fridge on top of freezer is not chilling


if you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this

1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor
IF fan is running check these things
1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch
2. ensure door shuts
3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille)
4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up
