What else can I check - my fresh food side of fridge is still too warm, freezer fine.


GE refrigerators use a board to control cooling and defrost functions. The fresh food compartment also utilizes a motorized damper, and some models even have a fresh food fan. Air enters the fresh food compartment at the top left corner, and the return air is also in the left wall down near the crispers. Both paths must be clear.

Our refrigerator is freezing our vegetables. it is turned all the way down.what is the problem?


Is food freezing in the rest of the fresh food side as well, or just the food in the lower half, like in the crispers. if its freezing everywhere in the fresh food section, you have a bad cold control most likely, without knowing the type or brand, i cant be 100%. If its a GE, you could have a different issue, but most any other brand will be a bad cold control.

If the food is only freezing in the lower half, then your evaporator fan motor is likely the problem, located in the freezer

The coils on my ge gss22wgpd bb side by side keep freezing up . IU can defrost them manually and the freezer and fridge work fine again.


This has happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me, the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side. That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.

Since the compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wall of the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week). Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longer move any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food side continued to climb. (The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall, so if no air is moving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartment climb.)

I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side and solved the problem for a while. About six months later I had the same problem again, so I replaced both temp sensors in the freezer compartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)

If you are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them all under the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".

This site has schematics of various appliances, including the model number you provided...
http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=GSS22WGPDBB&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=2

Your model appears very similar to mine - in the "Fresh Food Shelves" section of the above site, the sensor is diagram number 242. In the "Freezer Section", the sensors are diagram number 241 and 243.

Refrigertor not cooling but freezer working


your temp control fan has probibly gone out. The way you find out is to find the fan which should be located near the temp control switch behind a plastic vent. If this fan is out there will be cooling in the freezer but not in the fridge. Also, if you open that area and find a large chunk of ice you defroster rod has gone out. Would recommedn replacing both at that time. Get model and serial number of unit and take to an appliance parts house they can assist you in the right part and any type of installation problems. Good Luck

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft


Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.
