Its either your thermostat is bad, or the refrigerant charge is too low to cool properly, or worst case...your compressor is going bad.

Try cleaning the coils, and passages good and see if it helps...but i bet you will find its more serious.

The freezer shelves in my ge Dss25KGRC side-by-side refrigerator/freezer keep falling down. It seems as though the shelves shrunk and no longer fit. Could it be that the freezer walls have gotten farther...


I had the same problem with my 3 year old GE Adora side by side. Call GE at 1800-386-1215. They were very helpful! They sent me all new shelves and drawers that were obviously wider because they fit perfect(only took a couple days)! Included in the shipment were spacers that I could of put on the ends just in case I needed more width. GE knows about the issue and is dealing with it on a case by case basis.

The refrigerator is 8 years old. the refrigerator


Any refrigerator should last around 14 yrs. The freezer must be frosted up. I would try to defrost it and then start it back up. If you have a defrost problem you will see this again inside of a week. Also make sure the evaporator fan is operating.

Freezer works but frige dosent get cold enough.


Welcome to fixya richarddl53,

You said, you have a side by side about fifteen years old need to know what type freon to charge it with.

The freon that's used in the old refrigerators is not legal now!
They started using a newer kind of freon years ago that does not deplete the ozone layer.
Yes you are low on freon, but that's because you have a leak somewhere.
And if by chance you could acquire the freon that you need to add into the older model fridge, it will just leak out again shortly!
My opinion is that you should not put good money into bad!
A new refrigerator uses less electricity than a fridge that is ten years old.
And yours uses 10% more than that!
you will see the differents in you utility bill as it will pay for it self in a few years!


I just read this report you may find interesting.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Side by Side Maytag Frig/Freezer Frig not cooling


Hello momeddy41,
I'm Huuum to your rescue.

Is your freezer packed to the top, and covering any air ducts near the back of the freezer?
The freezer and fridge share the air and if the circulation from the freezer to the fridge is cut off ,
this could cause problems.
Or you may just need a shot of coolant to raise the pressure in the coil.
It's not necessarily wise to spend a lot of money on an old fridge over 7 years old.
But*** it's better to try one service call and find out if it is one of the many simple things first, as I showed you. Then you would ne saving the price of a new fridge for awhile!
That's your call.

Here is an interesting report I just read!

1 Answer

Have side by side refrigerator (approx. 10 yrs old). Fridge no longer keeps food cold enough even at highest setting and freezer isn't as cold either.


Your refrigerator needs to be turned off and aompletely defrosted. Overnight if possible. You have a large amount of ice built up on the freezer coil that is blocking air flow.
Most refrigerator sections are only cooled by air flow from the fan in the freezer section.
Thaw it and clean it out real good and you should be back in business.
