Question about GE PSI23SCRSV Side by Side Refrigerator
First and foremost inquiry, is the fridge cooling down the contents stored inside the fridge?
Second Q is it cooling the contents as per the settings of the thermostat??
A1- if the fridge is NOT cooling despite the compressor running - Then the problem is leakage of the refrigerant gas(Freon, CF4, etc). Since the cooling can only be achieved if there is sufficient refrgerant gas, or the compessor is running but its not actually compressing, i.e. compressor has to be replaced. (rare phenomena )
A-2 The thermostat unit is malfunctioning, i.e. its reading the inside temprature as higher than the actual temp. inside. In this case only the thermostat sensor has to be replaced only, since it's reading/recording/showing the measured temp to be quite high than actual, switching on the Compressor, which due to extra running results in overheating the compressor and the safety device for the compressor trips, switching the compressor off when its gets overheated to prevent damage of the compressor.
My suggestion is to attend to the prob. asap.Delaying the repair may result in the compressor damage which has to replaced since its casing is sealed & has to be cut by a gas cutter. This repair is not dependable, so a new compressor is the only choice.
After detailing so much I should have given first priority to find out if the doors are closing and remaining closed via magnetic pull (the most common but essential element), otherwise the fridge will never be able to cool anything inside & making ice impossible..................sodeep
