Question about GE Refrigerators
We have a GE Profile Fridge model PSS26SGPASS. It worked great until now and we had one repairman come out and he said it was either a leak or the compressor but didn't check and suggested we buy a new one due to the cost of fixing this one and the age 5 1/2 years old. We ordered a new one but wanted another opinion so another repairman came out last night and said it was working fine and did not think there was an issue. An hour after he left the fridge stopped working again. The tmeperature in the freezer went up to 35 degrees and the fridge was up to 54 degrees. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, no ice build up or anything. sounded fine but what do I know. Please any suggestion would be helpful. We already have $120 in this one and don't really want to spend over $600 would rather but a new one if that was the case.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Own the same model, the icemaker and the dispenser work properly but the leak is top center of the refrigerator compartment.

In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help. God bless ,tom

Pull the refrig out from the wall , and remove the rear panel . Touch the compressor and feel if its hot or running . If the compressor is cool , then the main control board is bad ( since the compressor isn't running ) . If you can solder , you can repair the board (another paragraph ) . If the compressor is warm , then you could have a thermistor or 2 bad . This would have to be checked by a technician , unless you know how to get into the diagnostics procedure . Also , see if the compressor cooling fan is working and the black squirl cage is clean of dust .

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
