Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrig is freezing foods and will not stay set at temp recom.

I have always kept refrig and freezer on rec temps of 37 and 0. It will no longer stay at the set temps and fluctuates between 22 and 26 degrees, and -2. Not really a problem for freezer, but definitely ruining foods in refrig. Any recommendations?

My refrig is freezing items on the refrig side.


likely a bad temperature control. also, some model GE's have a bad fresh food inlet cover, that fails to cutoff airflow from the freezer.

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

My refrig is occasionly freezing the food in the refrig part of my side by side. We just cleaned the coils after about 4 years. Can you help


Im assuming it is a GE PSS26MSRSS???

You will need to check the temperature sensor(s) and the damper. Is the temp display showing it is colder than the selected temp (recommend 37)?? If so it is likely the damper is broken, and it is open --- letting too much air come in from the freezer and getting colder than you set it.

Everything in the refrigerator is freezing


The 37 degree reading you're seeing is the temp. setting, not the present actual temp. When it jumps back to 22-25 its telling you what the actual temp is inside the refrig....simply wait about 24 hours. It should then read about 37...that is, the temp you set it at 24 hours previously.

its normal for the temperature to stay around 28 degrees farenheight int the bottom drawer. (fresh cut meat keeps better at his temp). you can adj the temp slide near the bottom of the refrig next to the botom drawer to help adj temp. veggies will almost always freeze in the bottom drawer. also adj the temp controls to a little bit warmer to help as well.


Keep in mind the mid point settings on your refrig is just a starting point for you to adj to where it works best for you and your usage..
