Refrigerator stopped cooling

7 year old side by side ksrs25ihbl02 stopped cooling either side. water line still works, as do the lights, but it stopped cooling with no other noticable symptoms. GE double door with water dispenser. Left freezer door cracked open for a couple days while away. Returned to find the refrigerator and freezer not cooling. Ice accumulated on the back interior wall of freezer. I removed food and took a hair dryer to the ice. However, I didn't see any coiles or anything to defrost. Lights and water line appear to be working.

    I have a 5 year old stainless side by side KENMORE refrigerator that stopped cooling on both sides. The fan still works and the light still works. What is the problem? Is it the compressor, the compressor motor, or the coils? I would love to fix this myself with the correct parts.




    Thanks,
    Sarah

This solution DID work for us after all. Chris72, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! After defrosting the HUGE block of ice behind the panel, we neglected to reattach the ground wire. Once we did, it works perfectly.

The back panel inside the freezer has screws in it. take out the screws to remove that panel. the coils are behind that. melt all the frost. youll see one or 2 heating elements in there also. replace the elements. its a common ge problem. this will fix the problem

Water dispenser


First thing I would check is the solenoid valve. It's what the water line in the back is connected to. An easy way to test it is to remove the screws connecting the solenoid so it is loose from the refrigerator. Remove the 2 water lines going into the refrigerator from the solenoid, keeping the water line from your house still plugged into it. Get a bucket and while the open ends are pointed in the bucket have someone press the water dispenser lever on front. If it dispenses water into the bucket from one side it's good, if not, replace it. Please be careful of the wire harness that is connected to the solenoid. Any part of the bare metal on the contacts, when energized, carry120v and can shock you.
Hope that helps.

I have a GE Refriderator about 3 years old. Recently the water dispenser stopped working, and the ice maker stopped as well. The ice maker seems to freeze up as it dispenses water in the tray to make ice....


Are you having any cooling problems whatsoever, anywhere? Is there any area in the unit that you dont put food for cooling reasons? if cooling is fine, check the water pressure as it comes into the refrigerator, you wil have to disconnect the water line at the solenoid valve behind the fridge. If pressure is good, pour 4-8 oz of water into ice maker, does it eject those cubes within 24 hours? then replace your water valve(s) One assembly houses a solenoid for both the ice maker and the water dispenser, both solenoids are bad.

Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.


Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

Refrigerator side won't cool


its iced up and needs to be thawed. you can use a hair dryer and make it fast in say 2 hours. the freezer side is blocked from admitting cool air to the fridge side. your defrost timer may be defective or you had a real humid situation that caused it to ice up.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..

Refrigerator stopped cooling


The most common problems for refers not cooling is a condenser fan motor (the one that cools the compressor) is out. This can be caused by either a mouse has tried to jump trough the fan and it came on or a loss of grease or oil. There is no way to oil them so they have to be replaced. That is the problem especially if you unplugged the refer and it worked for a while then quit. If the fan doesn't cool the compressor it will overheat and shut down coming on intermittently then shutting off again. As for the refer that still doesn't cool when everything else does you may have an burnt overload also. Check the compressor area for burnt or stalled components ex. fan motor, relay, overload. If your compressor is out plan on spending from $300.00 to $500.00. But check the suggested components first. And beware there are appliance shops out there that will find one of these problems and give you an estimate for a compressor. Find someone reputable.
