Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

In March of this year we purchased a GE Profile refrigerator/freezer, Model PSB42YGXASV. Recently, the temperature rose to 52 degrees in the freezer section and to 48 degrees in the refrigerator section. Both doors were securely closed and the unit made no unusual sounds. Since the GE certified technician could not make a service call for over a week, I opened the circuit breaker and switched the unit off. Last night, in anticipation of the service call, I closed the circuit breaker and switched the unit back on. This morning it was operating normally (0 degrees in the freezer, 37 degrees in the refrigerator). Any idea what might have caused the problem?

Hi

The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either becomes noisy or stop altogether. By turning it off and then on for few hours might have melted the frost and has made the circuit breaker to reset itself, that’s the reason its working fine now. As its still under warranty just get it checked by the service tech. to avoid future issues.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Freezer temperature fluctuating way up and down. 0 recommended. 11 degrees right now. 18 earlier. Food defrosting. Ice cream soft. GE Profile bottom drawer freezer. Only 3-4 years old.


Your problem could stem from an issue with the defrost timer, the compressor or its attachments (e.g.: relay, capacitor, etc.), or the freezer/evaporator fan motor. Contact an appliance service company.

How to check everything

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control board.
