    The refridgerator is a side by side. Is the fix still the same?

  • jeffdl59 Apr 30, 2010

    It is a GE profile artica but I don't know the model #. We just moved and I wonder if I have to level out the fridge. It has an ice maker but none of the lights on the front door work. I was told someone tried to take the doors off and may have disconnected them. Haven't had time to check yet.

  • jeffdl59 Apr 30, 2010

    will check over the weekend and see what happens. Thanks

  • jeffdl59 May 04, 2010

    They thought it was the main computer control board in the back but now they think it is the temperature control board in the fridge itself. It seems they are having problems with the main computer boards anyway. The fridge was now running with the door open and shutting off with the doors shut. Oh well.

  • jeffdl59 May 05, 2010

    Yes. I thought he had something wired wrong but he said he didn't. It wasn't doing that until he messed with it. Says the main board isn't messed up.

Can you see (when you close both doors) and even gap between the center of the doors at the middle of the refrigerator all the way down from the top to bottom? Or is the gap wider at the top then the bottom or vice versa?

If it is not even you can adjust the upper hinge plate for the doors to correct it and make it even. You want the doors to be parallel at the center and with a small gap between them when they are closed.

There you can find a plastic cover over each hinge plate that unsnaps giving you access to the three screws you loosen to adjust the angle of the door.

Even more, push the monitor center test cycle button on the control panel while pushing the doors closed with your hand and see if the door alarm stops going off after it completes its test cycle. Keep your hands against the doors firmly enough to ensure a tight seal from the time the test cycle starts all the way through until it is done and has reset itself to normal operation in its monitoring mode.

If the door alarm does not go off while holding the doors closed with your hands, you'll have to align the door hinges for a wider gap between the door and the refrigerator along the hinge line from top to bottom, this will allow the doors to close further at the center.

Hope this helped.

Pull the door switch and jumper (bridge) the connections......tell me if the alarm stops after performing this function.

Also, can we have the make and model of your refrigerator?

    Oh my, it sounds as though it could be more serious. It sounds as though someone re-wired something incorrectly. Hopefully, you can find that make and model number so that I can try and hunt down a wiring diagram.

  • laura Newman May 05, 2010

    You have a wiring problem. Without a make/model, I will not be able to help with the wiring problem. Keep in touch and let us know what the end result was. :-)

    Hi Jeff,

    Just wanted to touch base and see if you have made any progress with your freezer problem. Any progress?

Close the doors then check the gap between them at the middle of the refrigerator from top to bottom. The gap must be aligned and needs to be adjusted if not. The doors can be aligned by by adjusting the upper hinge plate of the doors. Unsnap each of the plastic covers of the hinge plates to access the hinge screws. Loosen the screws and adjust the doors for alignment then tighten the screws.

Push the monitor center test cycle button on the control panel, if the doors are aligned, while pushing the doors tightly closed and check if the door alarm stops after it completes the test cycle. Push the doors firmly enough to ensure a tight seal through the test cycle and reset the alarm to its normal monitoring operation mode. You have to readjust the door hinges for a wider gap between the door and the refrigerator along the hinge line from top to bottom.

    The fix is the same if the test cycle button is available on your refrigerator. What is the make and model?

  • Jahn27

    Better check it first if that is the case and find out what is the exact model if you need further assistance.

    Necessary tests can be done with the temperature sensors to check the if the temperature control is indeed malfunctioning. Please indicate the exact model number of the refrigerator.

    Does it shut off right away when the door is closed?

Electrolux door alarm Won't stop. We open door to turn off alarm. Temp seems right but slight condensation at the very top of the fridge. Need to at least disable alarm until I can get a repair.


Check the back wall of the freezer, I would suspect the beginnings of or a full-on defrost failure... If there is frost on the back wall of the freezer it means the evaporator is blocked, disallowing airflow to the fridge compartment... Electrolux Refrigerator Defrost Thermostat 216731001 . If there is no blockage, but temps are still not cold enough, your Frigidaire may be leaking refrigerant...

Why is the refrigerator side not cooling and the alarm keeps going off


Hello Debby Rhodig, thank you for your post!

Based off the information for your Frigidaire refrigerator I see that your fresh food side is not cooling and the alarm is going off. I would check to verify there is no food or packages blocking the rear vent. If there is nothing blocking the vent place your hand back there to check if you feel any cold air coming out of the damper. If there is no cold air coming out of the damper it could be an issue within your evaporator fan, if there is cold air coming out I would set your temperature to a colder setting.

Changing the temperature inside your appliance can take up to 24 hours to stabilize. If you continue having issues with your refrigerator I would seek assistance from a professional to come out and properly diagnose and repair your appliance. I hope this helps. -Matt

Has stopped cooling


IF THE FREZERWORKS THE ISSUE IS THE SETING FOR THE AIRFLOW BETWEEN THE FREEZER AND REFER BOX IS SET TO MAX COLD FREEZER, IT HAPPENS MORE THAN YOU WOULD THINK! IF IT SEEMS WARM, RATHER THAN SETTING THE THERMOSTAT TO COLDER THEY ALSO PEG THE OTHER CONTROL THAT DOES NOT CONTROL THE COMPRESSOR AT ALL IT SIMPLY OPENS A FLAPPER TRAP DOOR AJAR OR WIDE OPEN OR IF SET TO MAX COLD IT CLOSES OFF THE REEFER!! AND KEEPS THE COLD IN THE FREEZER BOX, IF THE FREEZER WORKS ITS FINE !

Refrigerator not getting cold even when set at lowest point.


Not enough information. But here is something which may help you diagnose the cause. I assume that you have a frost free fridge freezer. That there is a fan in the freezer which blows cold air down into the fridge.That the freezer is still cold. You can hear the fan cutting in and out.
Try opening the Fridge door and locate the little plunger switch which is pushed shut by closing the door (like the switch on you car door that turns the interior light on and off).
Push it in manually with your hand. (the fan needs to be running. The fan should blow cold air into the fridge. There will be a panel with vents, probably on the back off the fridge. Cold air should be coming from this. When working properly the temperature sensor in the fridge will control a flap like valve to allow or disallow entry of cold air from the freezer to the fridge.This controls the temperature of the fridge. If the flap is jammed shut no cold air can enter the fridge. Likely cause is ice build up, most likly in the back of the freezer blocking the path of the cold air. I had this problem on an old fridge of mine.I think that it is caused by the heat cycle not kicking in correctly to defrost the heat exchanger . I used to DISCONNECT THE FRIDGE FROM THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY dismantle the inner panels of the freezer. And pour water over the ice monster blocking up the back of the freezer. Not a good solution i grant you. But it would work for a week or two. Then i would have to do it again. later i found a small panel on the back (outside) of the fridge with wiring and stuff inside it. There was a rotatable knob which clicked as you turned it. in one position you could hear it make the heat cycle kick in manually. I spent about 6 months doing this every few days whilst saving for a new fridge. It worked. But there is a RISK OF ELECTROCUTION .
Sorry i cant fix your problem . But this might be of some help to diagnose it. If you are not sure i wouldn't recommend fishing round in the electrics. I have had quite a few electric shocks doing stuff like this because i am not as careful as i should be, and i am not a qualified electrician. It never hurts me much. But some people will die quite easily from mains voltage. BE CAREFUL!!
