Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
The refrigerator side not cold at all,I open inside and found frost build up on the aluminum plate .I manually defrorst it and working fine for 2 to 3 days and same problem again.What's wrong??HELP..HELP..
This has happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me,the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side.That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.
Sincethe compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wallof the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week).Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longermove any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food sidecontinued to climb. (The fresh food side is chilled through a hole witha motorized door at the top of the dividing wall, so if no air ismoving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartmentclimb.)
I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side andsolved the problem for a while. About six months later I had the sameproblem again, so I replaced both temp sensors in the freezercompartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)
Ifyou are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them allunder the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".
Use a website like www.partselect.com to look up a parts diagram for your fridge and see if you can order just the temp sensors. Other websites (www.repairclinic.com and www.appliancepartsworldwide.com) may also be helpful. I have no affiliation with any of the sites I just mentioned - I'm just posting them as resources.
