Question about Refrigerators

GE side-by-side Refrigerator too cold, runs all the time

My GE refrigerator cools to 28 F even with the temperature selection on '1' or '2' -- the least cooling. It won't seem to cut off even when the door has not been opened for over 2 hours, and the inside temp is below freezing (measured with a digital thermometer with a sensor inside on the upper shelf and the display outside.)

I vacuumed the evaporator coils as best I could with a soft bristle attachment, and they look pretty clean; certainly not dusty enough to block air passage around the coils. I made sure all the shelves, bins, and other parts inside are in their proper place. I still get frozen milk, orange juice, and vegetables in the drawers. Is there anything a handy homeowner can do to solve this?

GE model GSS25L GMA WW, six years old.

    I also have a GE model GSS25L6MBWW fridge and it also freezes in the refrigerator side. Almost every thing freezes on that side no mater what setting I choose (even down to 1 on the digital setting).



    Any help out there?

    Same problem! Food freezes everywhere, especially on top shelf. But I'll open the door and the reading for the fridge side will be 22, even though setting is 37.

    Brand new Amana French doors bottom freezer. Freezer temperature is ok. Refrigerator temperature remains below freezing at all areas on shelves and Chef's pantry and crisper. I've set the refrigerator temperature to 45 and it still registers at freezing or below (i've checked the temperature on 2 different refrigerator thermometers that I have)

If the problem is in the vegetable crisper drawer primarily, Google "WR49X10045". This is a simple fix kit for a design flaw.

GE monogram side by side no ice water dispensed not cold


To actuate the ice maker pull the arm down and it is in the on position.

The water is actually cooled in the refrigerator section. However it is not designed for a continuous flow. It takes time for the heat to be removed between each water draw.

If your refrigerator temperature is not cold enough it will affect the water temperature also. Check the refrigerator compartment temperature with a thermometer.
