Question about GE GSS25JFM Side by Side Refrigerator

The condenser coils are coiled in a circle under the fridge. Is there a way to completely clean them? I have vacuumed but can only access what faces the rear. Can it be removed to clean better?

The clicking noise is likely the compressor overload tripping.

Here are some tips that may help solve your problem:

  • You will need to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Carefully remove the cardboard cover at the bottom of the back panel of the refrigerator to access the coils and clean under the refrigerator. To thoroughly clean the coils, I recommend that you obtain and use a coil brush. It is a long, round brush with a handle designed for cleaning refrigerator coils.
  • Check your condenser fan to make sure that it is running when the compressor is on. If not, this could be causing your problem.
  • Be sure to replace the cardboard cover on the bottom of the back panel of the refrigerator. If this cover is not in place, air will not flow over the coils properly.
  • Re-post with your findings.

Refigerator runs but does not get cold


Check the fridge's temperature or thermostat control to confirm that it was not accidentally turned up.
Inspect the appliance's door seals to ensure that they are not cracked or have come loose.
lean the fridge's condenser coils. Condenser coils displace hot air from the refrigerator by drawing heat away from the appliance with a fan. Vacuum the condenser coils to remove any dust and dirt accumulated on them, then use warm, soapy water and a clean cloth to clean the condenser coils of any remaining debris. Examine the drain line, located under the refrigerator, if above does not fix it , it may be low on freon, or there is a hole in a line.

How to clean condenser coils on lfx25960tt


Condenser coils- The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor. You should clean rear-mounted coils once a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Refrigerators are heavy, never tip one forward or backward. Never attempt to move a refrigerator without an assistant. Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.You should clean floor level coils at least twice a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Vacuum or brush the coils. Remove the grill from the front of the refrigerator and use a vacuum with a wand attachment to remove any dust and debris. The grill should snap off and on. Pull firmly toward you and possibly upward to remove the grill. If it does not come off with a modest effort, check for screws or retaining clips that may hold it in place.

NOTE_ Make sure that the evaporator and condenser fans are running. If they are not running, this will lead to a failed control board.

bad door seals, frosted up coils, low refrigerant, dirty/clogged condenser coils (under fridge), bad condenser fan. check the fan in the back. clean out the coils with a vacuum under the fridge. see if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer. if there is, you'll have to remove the back wall and defrost the coils with a hair dryer. check the door seals for leaks. replace if necessary. if all is well and still warm, you have a freon leak. call in the pros.

The divider strip between the freezer and the fridge is super hot. Both sides are still working fine, but it hasn't been this way until the last few days.


When the face of that divider gets really hot, it's because the condenser coils are unable to shed heat properly. Check to see if the condenser fan is running - it's the one that blows air across the coils under the fridge. If no air is moving, then you need to replace it. If the fan is working, then check for any obstructions and use a vacuum cleaner to clean the coils. Make sure there's enough space behind the unit for air to flow.

The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.

Motor runs, freezer defrosting and fridge won't cool


If you have frozen coil at the back of the freezer section, then the defrost thermostat is usually failing. Allow the fridge to defrost completely overnight. If the fridge restarts cooling immediately after defrost, then the problem was the defrost system. In that case the fridge will stop cooling again in a couple of days, as soon as the evaporator coils restart freezing and the condenser goes under stress with the whole cooling system loosing efficiency.
