Question about GE 22.3 Cu. Ft. Bottom-Mount Refrigerator - White-on-White
The freezer went to 69 degrees - and fridge at 82 degrees. Then went back to normal temps - Had it checked out by a local repairman and everything was okay and the temp was right on when he arrived. Late afternoon yesterday it went to 9 degrees in the freezer and 39 in the fridge part - this morning it is at -1 in freezer and 34 in fridge. Much fluctuation. Help
The thermostat is likely failing intermittently, or the defrost timer could be failing.
Both parts can be tested (and should have been) by the repairman.
The defrost timer turns on and off to let the coils defrost - but if it stays off - can cause the rise in temperature. The thermostat, however, reports the temperature to the timer, so either (or both) could be to blame.
Have them tested.
