Compressor starts and then shuts off

I'm assuming it does not get cold.....did you turn the freezer when cleaning it? if so, you are supposed to let it [ the internal compressor oil ] drain right side up for at least 24hrs before turning on the unit.....try unplugging it for a cpl days, then plug it back it....if it still acts up, you may need to change a thermal coupling sensor......or depending on the age of the unit, replace it.

if the freezers staying cold but not the refrige section,then its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section thats either frozen shut or the damper door motor is bad or without power,if nothings cold as in freezer and refrigerator sections,then its the ptc overload & relay on the compressor thats bad,unplug the ptc overload & relay off the side of the compressor and obtain an exact replacement and plug in the new replacement and it will again cool

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge

check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly

Refrigerator not cold enough

try unplugging it for a day f you can as sometimes it ices around the coils blocking air flow(especially if it is left open for a while) in mine it was along the back bottom of the freezer and I was able to remove a panel and then use a blow drier but eventually it repeated itself and had toreplace a part down there

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.

It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Our freezer on our ge profile side by side is not staying cold

Pull the refrig out from the wall . Behind it you will see an 8 " X 10 " panel , held on by several screws . Unplug the refrig and remove the panel . On the control board , you will see a blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Unplug this plug . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire with both ends stripped about 1/4 " . Insert one end into wire2 and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . Open the freezer door and , at the bottom of the rear panel , do you see a red glow ? If no glow after about 1 min , then the defrost heater is probably bad . To replace this , you would have to remove the rear freezer panel , and under the coils , will be a glass tube . This is the heater . If you do see the red glow , then either the board or the #4 and #5 thermistor are bad . Start with the thermistors . Small 1" white cylinder , with 2 white wires going to them . One is clipped on top of the freezer coils , and the other is at the bottom of the freezer panel , inserted into a holder . These thermistors , tell the board the temp of coils , and freezer .

My GE side by side Model # GSS20IEPA has frost on

Is the fan in the freezer working ? May have to press the light switch in to test . If not , main control board is probably bad . not the fan moter . Pull refrigerator out and remove the small 10"X13" metal cover . Unplug refrig first . Then remove the blue plug with 3 wires attached to it . The wire sequence on the plug looks like this : wire 1,wire 2,space wire 3.
Use an insulated jumper wire with both ends stripped and insert one end into wire 2 and the other into wire 3 . Plug refrig back in and look in freezer at the bottom . If the heater and defrost thermostat are good , the a red glow should appear . No red glow , either bimetal or heater is bad . Most likely heater pt# WR51X10101 . Do not forget to reinstall the blue plug with refrig unplugged or could cause main board dammage .

Refrigerator and Freezer not getting cold?

unplug the machine and let it completely defrost with the doors open overnight. then try it. if it still does not get cold then you know it is a more serious problem, like a compressor $300+
if it works for a couple days then freezes up again then you know it is a defrost problem, less serious problem <$100
