GE Monogram ZISB36DCA only reaches 40 degrees. Coils are clean but we notice that when we close it, you do not have that vacuum seal my other monogram has. Any suggestions?

I had this happen to mine too. Turned out to be the return spring which pulls the door closed and tight. So door is inadvertantly left ajar or doesn't seal properly. Unscrew the kick plate on the bottom and check to see if the spring broke on the fridge door. It should look just like freezer return spring (which I assume is still ok) Spring can be ordered ... or if only the hook coil came off the end you can rebend it with some difficulty. You need the fabric cover on the spring. Don't throw it away. It is a detent to stop any spring noise when the door is opened and closed. I found out the hard way.

My GE Monogram Frig door will not stay shut, it's lost its vacuum seal!


Check the fridge for out of level. Magnets on the weather-stripping hold the door closed. If there is something stuck on the seal, or too much weight in the door in an un-level fridge it will not make good contact. Try cleaning the rubber, and removing everything from the door after leveling. A good seal will stay closed even if the fridge is off.

Ge monogram not cooling properly


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

Hey Rkraft,

But now as i think about it how is the frost pattern on it is part of the evap coil covered in ICE (not frost) that could be a sign of a sealed system problem but only if part of the evap coil is iced up and the tube i spoke about on in that other comment isnt frozen

My GE Adora seams to be breaking down. Freezer is not freezing and temperature in both, Freezer and Refrigerator is dropping. HAVE reset the temperatures to GE's recommendation of 0 Degrees and 38...


One thing you can do is make sure condenser coils have plenty of area around them (nothing lying against refrigerator) to prevent air flow. If possible vacuum and clean condenser coils and make sure freezer door is completely closed.

Frig is getting to cold and freezing the food. temp set at 40 and stays at 28-30 degrees


Check to see if your dampers are working. They open and close based on the temp.

Refrigerator will not hold temperature lower than 44 degrees!!


I bet it's a GE Monogram? I have the SAME problem. Our refrigerator is stuck at 44 degrees. It was stuck at 47 degrees, but after 6 visits from the repairman we now have it down to 44 degrees! At first we didn't realize how bad it was, and we were eating food that was making us sick! My daughter was admitted into the hospital from severe intestinal problems and without getting into details... this has cost her health, and tens of thousands in medical bills.

We have thrown out a ton of food. The repairman has replaced a bunch of parts including a fan, a thermostat, replaced a switch, cleaned, checked the gaskets, replaced a thermostat control device, and possibly other stuff as I can't keep track anymore. He's has been coming 2-3 times per week for the last 3 weeks. And now says the ONLY thing it can be is a "leak" in the copper line. Since it is a sealed system he has to tap the copper line with a valve to check the pressure, and that valve will always have to stay in place once it is tapped. And we will have to have the freon filled every so often because valves will slowly lose the freon over time.

This GE monogram is suppose to be a top of the line GE appliance. Our entire kitchen is GE Monogram, and we have had many many problems with most all of the appliances. The dishwasher was replaced at approx. 4 years due to over priced service calls, and super expensive parts. GE wanted close to $300 for an upper dishwasher rack. It was less expensive to buy a new one.

Don't these appliance manufacturer's get it? They may save money on the manufacturing side, however they lost a customer for life. Not only did they lose me, they lost my daughter, my son, and my grandson.

These GE appliances that are built to fail end up filling up our landfills. GE should be embarrassed.

Possibly have your repairman check the copper line for leaks? We're waiting to see today if that will work.
