Question about GE GSH25JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator is not working...

I am not sure if the refrigerator was working all day or not. I think i left the door closed, but obviously not closed completely. i set the temperature at 8 which are pretty cool. However, there is nothing going on. On the other hand, the freezer is working just fine. it keeps pouring the cold air.
I think the thermometer has burned out or some control unit in the rear has gone bad. What do i need to do?

Nongbu2380 lets see what happens. Those model remember how long the door was open. It's in the memory so it tried to keep up the cooling while the dore was open and may have missed a defrost. You may get it to cycle correctly again by unplugging for a few minutes so the control board will reset. If you continue to have problem I will send you the instructions to put the refrigerator in self diagnostics or to manually reset the board. Hope to help, let me know, Sea Breeze

    I believe while the door was open the electric controlled damper may have frosted itself shut. Check if there is air flow from the incoming vent inside the fresh food section.

Left door of the refer isn't closing properly, must manually feed it thru the little channel at the top for it to fold in and close


check the door hinges a in place:
The door latch and lower hinge pin should hold your refrigerator door in place..
Uncover the door by removing the screws.Take the door off and pack bottom hinge with washers and make sure hinge brackets on cabinet are tight.
Check the seal is clean and pliable:
If seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently.
Check the refrigerator is properly leveled:
Adjust the middle hinge to straighten the lower portion of the door. Use a level to ensure the door is flush.

After fitting the door back again,check to see if the seal is touching on all sides when the door is closed. If not, you will need a new seal.Refrigerator is properly leveled.and hinges should be properly placed.

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Compressor stopped working?

Obviously, if no one was around at the time of failure to make an observation, it is almost impossible to determine what exactly caused the failure. Most certainly a door left ajar would cause the unit to run for an extended period of time and thusly cause a pre-mature failure of the sealed system. Also, a power outage or any other component malfunction could cause the unit to stop working. Refrigeration is contrived of numerous controls, safety, and operating systems built in to one unit. So as a rule of thumb, if the unit is going to be left unattended with perishables left inside, have someone you trust check on it every 2-3 days. This may not prevent a failure of the unit but it certainly will help keep the food from spoiling to the point of having to clean up an sightly mess. If you decide to empty the unit and turn it off, then unplug it and leave the doors open to prevent mold build up and odors from accumulating inside the unit.

Kitchenaid superba side by side refrigerator over temperature...

I think I may have the solution, after having suffered through the same problem for months. I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-side which is really the same as KitchenAid and Whirlpool. Having thought of complicated solutions first, I have finally gotten back to step 1, simple solution. Tape the switch on the top of the freezer compartment and see if that works for you. I believe the door while seemingly closed is not pushing the switch in far enough. If that works for you, you can probably glue something to the top of freezer door so it can push in the door switch a little better. The reason that it beeps is that the switch is not pushed in enough and the light is still on inside while the door is closed. The refrigerator then thinks the door is still open. I really hope this works for you as I can sympathize with you having listened to the beeps for months. I feel sorry for people who have changed one circuit board after another to no avail. And there are so many stupid repairmen out there offering dumb advices and perform needless repairs.

Try a hard reset. Just unplug the power cord for 30 minutes or more, then try again.

Left refrigerator door open over night, next day it stopped working

If this is a frost-free model with the evaporator buried in a tunnel behind the cabinet, there's a good chance you've just got it thoroughly iced up inside.

I'd be tempted to see if you can borrow some space in a neighbour's freezer for a day or so and turn your freezer off for 24 hours (with the door propped open) to defrost thoroughly.

Once all the ice has melted and you've mopped up all the ensuing mess, I think there's a good chance all will be well again. Even if it isn't, you haven't really lost anything through trying.

Pink fluid under refrigerator, I don't think so. The only fluid in refrigerators is an oil which is sealed in the cooling system and we know you are cooling. Your fridge may need a full defrost. This occurs because you may have left items uncovered and the moisture condensed in the cooling coils. It could also be the result of improperly sealing doors caused by dirt/ bad gaskets or the like. Best thing to do: shut it off, open the doors and let it defrost fully for a day. Clean the condenser coils under the unit with a long brush. Dry out as best you can and restart. You'll likely be okay. Make sure your freezer side is at about 0-5 above...refrigerator side 35-45. Use a regular thermometer and leave the door closed for at least an hour. (Do these measurements a day after you've restarted.)

Refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.
