I have a GE upright freezer. Model FUF 20DACRWH SERIAL # MT177996, MANUFACTURED 7/98.
During the power shut off last December. It quit freezing. The fan inside, works, so does the internal light. But not cold.

It is very common for the "relays" to go out on the compressor. The relays are mounted on the left side of the compressor. You need to find an "Appliance Parts Store" and buy an "RO-41". (this is a relay) it cost no more than 10 bucks. Go home with your new bought relay and pull your refrigerator out from the wall. Don't forget to unplug it! Take off the rectangle card board cover off the bottom of the refrigerator "in back"... More than likely 1/4 nut driver. Now look for the compressor--"The Roundish black thing the size of a basketball". Next, you will see a box looking thing (black, white) mounted on the side of the compressor with 2 wires going to it. Next take it off the side of the compressor. It just pulls straight off! Sometime though it may be held in place by a little clip. Now read the instructions with the RO-41(inside cover). You will end up cutting the old relays off. Take the two wires that went to it and wire them into the relay(follow the instructions w/relay) then other wires on relay plug right into the compressor! AND THATS IT! It sounds hard but aint... goodluck!!!

How can i convert freezer to refrigerator


Usually this can be achieved by changing the REFRIGERANT GAS used AND vice-versa [ie fridge-freezer or freezer-fridge]. IF your unit has twin compressors [as most modern combo-units do] your local Refrigeration Engineer should be able to do this for you. With modern compressors and Environmental Regulations this is NOT a DIY job ... ok [as used refrigerant gas must be safely removed and disposed of as directed by local Environmental Laws].

Freezer not freezing


If you can hear the motor running it could be the thermostat that has gone or if there is no noise at all it could be the motor that has died, a good easy fix ( sometimes works ) is to turn the freezer off leave it for 24 hours with no power then try turning it on again.

I want to know how long the warranty is for GE Model FUF 17DPHRWH, Serial Number DL177038. Thanks. My phone number is 806.335.3745


The warranty offered by GE on the FUF17DPHRWH is one year for parts and labor from the date of purchase if the unit fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship. If you pay for the GE Service Protection Plus, you will get longer coverage. (However, I've found that for most appliances, you would be better off putting the annual fee for the service in a savings account. Then when the appliance fails, use the money in the savings account to repair or replace the applaince.)

The manual is available here: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-60441.pdf . If this direct link doesn't work, start at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model number. Then click Submit.

I hope this helps.

GE Freezer Not Freezing


I am not an expert, but if the defrost heater is not working, then maybe when it was unpluged the coils didn't completly unthaw. If not, the freezer still will not cool properly.

GE upright freezer


If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.
