Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE refrigerator works sometimes

We have a side by side GE refrigerator that automatically shuts off completely and then after a few hours, it starts up again and works fine. It cools thinks when it is working and it makes ice. The issue is that while it is off, water starts leaking from bottom. Once it starts, it freezes and we have to manually break up ice so that when it happens again, it will not leave all over the floor. This has been going on for quite a while. I don't want to get rid of it because it does keep food cold. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: GE refrigerator

this may be water from the defrost cycle. if this drains to tray over compressor, check tray is not too full (water evaporates from heat of compressor) otherwise defrost water will go to a seperate container which may have a split or is overflowing. fault can also be caused by poor door seals which would produce too much ice on evaporator pipes

SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor

I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...

SOURCE: the ice maker on our GE refrigerator does not make ice

1 -Ice maker arm must be down(on position)2-Make sure the water supply line is connected to the fridge3Check if the ice maker is plugged in4The freezer must be working fine for the ice maker to produce ice. After the ice maker stars and calls for water and doesn't get any , the water valve is bad.And if everything above is ok the ice maker needs to be replaced.

Beeping sound on ge refrigerator side by side


Sometimes you'll get that if the door isn't completely shut because something is stuck between the door and gasket. If you check that and it all looks good try unplugging the fridge for 10 minutes and then plugging back in. That usually resets the computer.

Water fliter


For a GE (which you posted under) just turn the filter a quarter turn counter clockwise to remove the old filter. Water will shut off automatically, so you will only loose a few drips. Install new filter by lining up arrow/ cheveron and turning quarter turn clockwise.

Doors don't swing shut automatically


The GE side by side refrigerator has 2 cams on the bottom hinge that helps shut the door. If the cam wears out then the door will not close properly. One of the cams is riveted to the hinge assembly and an extra cam is shipped with it. The cam assemblies can easily be replaced by using the information on the Partselect.com website that refers to the GE TFX22R refrigerator.

The fill valve that supplies the water may not be shutting off completely. Also check to see that the lever is closing completely.
