Question about GE GSH25JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE Side by side runs constantly.

Our GE 25.2 frost free side by side, Model TFT25 JR, about 8 years old, for the past couple of years has been puddling water on the floor in the left front corner under the freezer door. There is also a build up of ice on the floor of the freezer. In addition, the motor never quits running. I'm sure the 2 are related what do you diagnose as the problem and is it something I can fix myself?

Re: GE Side by side runs constantly.

EASY FIX!!! The drain is clogged up. All you have to do is take the back wall to the freezer off (lower section in freezer) And you will see another layer of frozen ice at the bottom (behind back wall). Get you a hair dryer and start melting. After a few minutes u will start to see a drain whole(size of a nickle in middle) concentrate you efforts on the drain hole. Now get some wire or something and stick down in hole, then pull out over and over till finally it drains all the build up water around the hole! GOODLUCK!!!

Refrigerator side not cooling. The freezer works fine. Its age is over ten years old. Model GE TFX22R.

Is there any frost build up on the freezer panel? If not, this could be a damper door issue. Check to see if air is coming from the damper, this is the vent inside the back left-corner of the fresh food side, assuming the evap fan is running. If you feel nothing, it more than likely is your damper door.

If you have frost build up, we're talking about a defrost issue then. Let me know!

Frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser

you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft

Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

I replaced the water filter for my GE GSH25JSTA SS side by side fridge and now the unit is no longer dispensing water

I have had the same problem with the same model several times in the past. It also happens to me within a few days of replacing the water filter.

In my case, I believe the water line in the freezer door has become frozen. I usually let the freezer thaw for a couple of hours, and my water works again.

I have had constant problems with this model. I would recommend trying to sell your fridge now while it's still running, before the real headaches begin (mine has died 2x in the past six months, and I have not even had it for 2.5 years yet). No more GE's in my house.

GE Side by side runs constantly.

The timer that controls the defrost cycle/function, may have failed and there may be no defrosting occurring. If icing of the coils due to the missing defrost cycle, there may not be enugh circulation left to keep the thermostat happy.

Try defrosting it manually (I know, it's a pain - aren't we spoiled?) and see if the compressor then cycles for a few days before it starts running continuously again.

And for Dr. Fred, the above suggestion about trying manually defrosting applies to your problem too.
The exposure to overnight moisture (ice accumulation) may have interfered with the automatic cycle.

Ge after replace fan still fan not working

Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.
