Question about Kenmore 73503 Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Temperature in GE fridge went up to 85(!!) while set for 34.

We had this GE Profile side by side fridge for almost 2 years. Bougth it brand new. We had several problems with the fan in the freezer being loud. The technician explained it was because of the condensation and that we left the freezer door open. But it keeps happening and the freezer door is being closed properly!!!
Now the regular part of the fridge heated up to 85F! I checked the temperature on the outside and it was correctly set up for 34. After about 7 hours (we had to empty the fridge completely because everything was melting), it started to cool off and not it it ok. WHAT IS HAPPENING?? I am afraid this thing can be a fire hazard when we go on vacation. Such a LEMON!!! Can anyone encounter a smiliar problem?
Thanks!

Help! My GE Profile Arctica runs 24 hours a day...sounds like a fan. It stops when either door is opened, then starts as soon as the door closes. The temps on either side are higher than what they are set...


It is normal operation for ARTICA fans to run continuosly except when the door is open. If the door remains open for 3 minutes the fans will run anyway.
The temperature will vary about 6 -8 degrees from the selected temperature. The temperature will increase during a defrost cycle.
I do not believe you have a problem.
