Question about Refrigerators

Refrigerator not cooling

Interior light is on, but NO other activity. Unit has been colder than usual for 3 days ( freezing in refrig compartment), Turned it down one notch. Seemed ok today. Tonight, I found food thawing in freezer. Turned temp control up.
NO response. No icing around evaporator coils.

    I smacked temp control. Nothing.
    I turned defrost control. Nothing.
    I turned the temp control to "off." Unit suddenly came alive.
    Temp in freezer is now 10. In fresh food, it's 38. BUT if I turn the control, even a hair away from "off," towards temperature settings,
    it turns off.
    What's next?

Have a GE side by side gsh22sgress unit. Child left freezer door open. Unit ran for days (in non-occupied appartment). Meat thawed. Cleaned unit inside with mild soapy mix. Unit runs but will not cool...


Open door let too much moisture into refrigerator. (The cooling coils, behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, are blocked with frost) If you unplug the refrig for a day or so it will work again, or you can take the back wall out from inside the freezer and melt the frost with a hair blower.

Food in refrigerator is freezing


check the damper door between the freezer and refrigerator compartments,it most likely has frozen in the fully open position allowing cold air into refrige compartment all the time,you will see ice build up around the damper door unit,remove the door unit defrost,replace and then see if it moves when you change the refrige cold control

Greetings fjehlert,

Usually this is indicative of a freon or compressor problem. I would suggest contacting a repair center as soon as possible.

Refrigerator Freezing


Your refrig has a mechanical damper (the a b or c knob) it may be broken (uncommon ) \ is the freezer fan running even if the cold control is cycled?? Other than that it must be a faulty cold control These are very reliable refrigs and your problem is interesting. Please rate my solution

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
