Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a GE Profile Fridge model PSS26SGPASS. It

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.

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

SOURCE: freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough

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.

SOURCE: amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

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

SOURCE: Ge Profile fridge

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 .

I have ge side by side model PSS26SGPASS it just thawed out everything in freezer, reading tc in fridge side now, freezer 37 degrees fridge was up to 50 company coming purchased 6 yrs ago help!


I have the exact problem. My unit is 6 years old too - purchased in 2004. I have located, after cleaning the coil under the unit, this is not the source of the real problem. I took the upper cover off which houses the main logic board to find if I flicked the comp relay "compressor" the compressor then turned on. I took amp readings before and after they were .2 without the compressor running and 1.3 with the compressor on. The main board will need to be replaced. Personally I will try to locate the actual relay and replace it on the board if possible.

Not getting any water out of the dispenser, but its making ice


The water dispenser on my GE profile fridge stopped working for a couple days. The refrigerator and freezer temperatures have fluctuated over the past several months causing fridge items to periodically freeze and freezer items to periodically thaw. GE tech came today identified a bad circuit board, which he replaced for a cool $300. Ouch. Fridge is only three years old. Oh yeah, the icemaker also has a broken tab which causes it to jam every couple weeks. We have GE Profile appliances throughout our kitchen and they all work great except for the fridge :-( I hope GE engineers read this post. If so, get to work! LOL

GE Profile - fridge not cooling


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

GE Profile side by side freezer not working at all. Fridge ok.


Is the fridge side working? If not try turning the defrost timer dial until it clicks. If it now goes you need to test the defrost circuit as there's still a fault but it'll go for 12 hours untill it trys to do another D'frost. If this doesn't work try bypassing the thermostat. cheers
