GE concept 2 fridge/ freezer combo. Freezer suddenly stopped freezing anything . It's cool, not even as cold as the refrigerator part. Any ideas?!


Hello:
Check if there is any frost buildup on the back wall inside freezer. Maybe your defrost system failed and ice is blocking the air flow(no air flow you just got a cooler )

Upright frigidaire freezer light flashing 6 degrees pressed super freeze will it reset??? How do I know if super freeze button working??


Check along the back and sides of the freezer for any vent-like openings that are covered or blocked by packages. There may be a sensor that's not getting air flow as it should. Although most upright freezers are now frost free, there still can be ice buildup in critical areas such as the thermal sensor or the fan. Can you tell if the fan is running?

Even if the compressor has failed, your frozen items will keep the temp down for several days. I suggest you move the frozen goods to a neighbor immediately. Meat or fish in particular quickly becomes unsafe to eat without at least refrigeration.

Frost buildup in freezer is an indication that there may be air being drawn into either the fresh food section door seal or the freezer door seal. Your model has a 61005543 Air Damper

That may also be either defective or stuck in the open position due to frost buildup. You are just going to have a look behind the rear wall of freezer to see what is going on. Unplug first before servicing. If you would like me to upload a Service Manual please let me know, John Tripp Appliance 911

Fridge not working


You will need to post more details for anyone to help you. It sounds like a problem with your refrigeration unit since nothing is getting cold but the "fridge is on", yet "everything has gone off". You need to be specific on what exactly is on or off. If your compressor is running but it's not cooling would be completely different than if the lights inside turn on but nothing else makes noise. Since you didn't give me much to work with and that makes me assume you do not know much about refrigeration I will suggest looking in the back of your freezer for ice buildup. If there is ice covering the area where cold air comes out, it may have just frosted over, you may have lost a fan back there, or there could be something wrong with the defrost cycle. I suggest this because it could be a non-technical solution if it happened to get frost build-up and nothing else actually failed.

The contents of the refrigerator freeze even on low settings


One of the most common problems with freezers is their tendency to build up a thick level of frost and ice that can disrupt performance. The ice can form on the hoses and cause the fan to freeze up. While you want the freezer to be cold, too much ice is not good for the freezer or the food inside it. There are multiple reasons a freezer could start to develop frost buildup.

Freezer Overstocked
Frost can build up in the freezer if there are too many items inside of it. Air cannot properly circulate around the freezer, so the areas with the sitting cold air can freeze the moisture. Frost continues to build up and accumulate, which then allows it to spread. If food is stocked up near the fan, cold air can't get past it, and the fan itself could develop frost to the point where it freezes and stops working entirely. This can be prevented by not overstocking the freezer and by evenly distributing food throughout.

Temperature Setting Too Low
The freezer should have a thermostat that regulates how cold it gets. If the temperature is set at too low of a setting, the freezer kicks into high gear, the air freezes outright and frost quickly builds up. Adjusting the thermostat to a higher temperature or level can counteract this problem, but you may need to de-thaw the freezer to eliminate the frost that has already built up inside.

Keeping the Fridge Door Open
Many people keep their fridge door open for extended periods of time while they examine the contents inside to see what they want to eat. This can contribute to frost buildup in the freezer, because the fridge is taking in a lot of warm air during this process and the fan pushes it up into the freezer. The moisture in that air is then quickly frozen, and ice can build up substantially as a result. The longer the fridge door is held open, the more likely this can occur, so the best solution is to only keep the fridge open for short intervals and then to not open the door again for a while.
Hope this tips will help you. : )

1)The door gasket on the freezer door helps keep the cold air in and the warm air out. If the gasket is dirty or damaged, it may prevent the door from closing properly, which can lead to frost buildup on your freezer walls. To make sure the door is sealing, slip a dollar bill or a sheet of paper between the gasket and the freezer and then close the door. If the bill or paper pulls free with little or no resistance, the gasket isn't sealing properly. Wipe the gasket with a damp cloth to remove dirt, grease and other residue. If the gasket is damaged, replace it with a new one. Sometimes frost can accumulate on the back panel of your freezer if the door is open too long or too often. When you open the door, you let warm, humid air inside, and this condenses and freezes. Make sure there are no packages preventing the door from fully closing, and limit how often you open the door by removing what you need all at once.
2)Ventilation is important because it ensures your freezer stays cold. If something inside the freezer blocks the internal vents, the freezer may become warm, causing condensation to form on the walls, and eventually leading to frost buildup. When loading your freezer, make sure there are no items resting against the rear wall of the freezer and space the contents out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
3)Side-by-side refrigerators with a built-in ice maker may accumulate frost if the flap on the ice dispenser doesn't close properly. This allows warm air to enter the freezer side, condense and freeze, causing frost buildup over time. Open the freezer door and examine the flap inside the ice chute. It should be flush against the housing. If it is not, empty the ice bin and make sure there is no ice or debris preventing the flap from closing.
4)If your freezer door closes properly and nothing is keeping it open, frost buildup on the back panel may indicate a problem with the freezer's self-defrost system. The self-defrost system turns off the compressor for a short time every six to 12 hours so it can turn on the defrost heater. This melts any frost buildup on the freezer coils, and the water drains to the pan beneath the freezer. If this component fails, frost continues to build. Move the contents to another freezer and turn your freezer off for 24 to 48 hours to manually defrost the interior. If frost builds up again, contact a qualified appliance repair technician to inspect the defrost timer and repair the problem.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

GE fridge: Freezer working but fresh food side not cold


The problem is the refrigeration evaporator, located in the freezer section is blocked with frost and ice and not air can pass through it. Four different failed parts can cause this problem. The defrost timer, the defrost heater safety thermostat, the defrost heater, or the evaporator fan motor. Unless you are very good with a volt-ohm meter, it wiil be difficult to distinguish which one of these parts has failed. A qualifed refrigeration service tech or a good appliance service tech with a refrigeration certification can find this quickly.

It's most likely a defrost issue. One or more of your defrost components have failed. Defrost components are defrost thermostat, defrost heater, and defrost timer or board depending on model
