Question about GE 22.3 Cu. Ft. Bottom-Mount Refrigerator - White-on-White

1 Answer

Re: Tempurature Problems

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.

1 year old kitchenaid kbfs25etss01. all of a sudden the fridge temp is up to 55 degrees. i did put a bunch of water, soda and beer in the fridge tonight. is it blocking something? door seems shut.


Hi,
Watch the unit for at least a hour, to see if the temps drop. You could have had the door open too long and lost a lot of air. Normally, they can recover from this, and this is nothing to worry about. I loaded my today also and my temps went up to 45, but my door way open for about 10 mins or so. Don't check the unit for at least 1 hour. Allow time for the system to recover. It should be ok. It should be able to drop temps with in a hour or a least 10 degrees.
Get back to me if you have any more question or concerns.
Good Luck, enjoy your cold beer....

Can a refrigerator be placed in a garage that houses the electric furnace?


Hi, all fridge freezers work on ambient room temperatures, ie room temperature. Also it will depend on the classification of your fridge freezer. On a normal classification fr/free 70 degrees should be a constant maximum. On a sub normal classification room temp should not exceed 50 degrees. on a sub tropical room temp can be pretty much as warm as you like. On the rating plate inside your fridge freezer two small letters exist (N) normal. (SN) sub normal. (ST) sub tropical. Most fridges will work for a while in the wrong temp but will work too hard and pack up

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Check for blockage of the damper door which regulates airflow from the freezer into the fridge. It might have gotten some ice buildup there while the freezer door was open.
