Question about GE Refrigerators

Open Question

Model PFSS6PKW/PFSF6PKW GE PROFILE FRENCH DOOR REF HAS CONTRACTED A VERY FOUL ODOR. I HAVE COMPLETELY CLEANED OUT THE REF. BUT THE ODOR IS REAL STRONG ONE TIME AND THE NEXT TIME IT ISN'T AS STRONG. MY HUSBAND HAS CHANGED THE FILTER. WE PURCHASED THIS REF AROUND DEC 07. WHERE IS THE ODOR COMING FROM? IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING IS SEALED. WOULD IT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE WATER EVAPORATOR PART? I HAVE COMPLETELY CLEANED THE INSIDE AND THE WALL AND FLOOR BEHIND THE REF AND CAN'T SEEM TO GET RID OF THE ODOR. THE BAKING SODA TRICK DOESN'T WORK!

SOURCE: have alful odor in freezer and ref,had some things

Sorry that has happened to you. The only way to get the smell out is to clean all of the inside sections of the freezer and fresh food section with a good cleaner and warm water. Unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and wash the evaporator coils with warm water and Clorox solution. When done in that way the solution goes down the defrost condensate drain to the pan below the refrigerator and it also disinfects the smell that has accumulated from inside the refrigerator and freezer and ends up being returned into the air inside your home from the condensate collection pan that uses the heat from compressor and fan to replace the moisture inside you home. Thanks, Good Luck, It Works! Sea Breeze

SOURCE: water drip at base of freezer door at bottom!

Have you had a chance to locate the location the water inside freezer? There are many reasons for this to happen I just can not say it would be a defrost condensate drain blockage. Most times it is. Every 8 to 10 hours your freezer defrost and the water is surposed to follow a pipe or drain through the refrigerator to a pan below refrigerator where the warm air from condenser evaporates the water back to the air inside your home. That drain line sometimes slowly becomes blocked and then the drain hole becomes clogged with ice. Once that happens the drain needs to be cleared. I will try to help you solve this so for now I need you to see if water looks as if it came from rear of freezer. Placing photos on Flickr would be great! So tell me where you see it and yes we may need to pull a few things out. This is nothing a few towels, hair dryer hot water and Clorox and a wet vacuum cannot handle. Sea Breeze

Water under produce section


In addition to water under the crisper drawers, you might be getting water in the drawers too, look for any ice/frost in any of the air vent holes just above the drawers on the rear fan cover. This unit was made by Samsung for GE, these are notorious for this issue as the defrost drain tube wick heater is not long enough to work. You will need to turn the unit off for 24 hours, unplugged, doors open to ensure it's completely thawed both behind the cover and drain tube. Part# WR13X10573 (cover assembly complete) gets replaced, and part# 819043 will need to take the place of the existing Samsung one. Pleazer Appliance...

Need help to unclog a drain on a GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model PFSS6PKW/PFSF6PKW. Specifically, where does the drain end? Behind the freezer & how to access it? Also found eroding t


You should be able to see where the drain tube comes out over the drain pan. Get some thin wire and run it down the tube and when it comes out in the drain pain, tie something onto it like a small piece of cloth and pull it back up through the drain tube to swab it out. The tape is no big issue, if you want to do something about the rust, there is a product that autoparts stores sell that turns rust into a hard, rigid metal. Or you can use a blow drier to make sure it is dried out and then spray rubber under coating on it.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator that will not dispense water or ice. The panel and light work and when you try to get ice or water it does nothing. No noise either. It is model # PFSS6PKW


When both ice and water do not work it is usually related to the door / light switch failing. Check the door switch by depressing the plunger and see if the compartment light goes out. If it oes not go out the switch has failed. WITH POWER REMOVED the switch is removed by using a thin knife blade to release the single locking tab on one side of the switch. The switch had 3 terminals
C = Common
NC= Light
NO= water and ice.

You should read continiuty (resistance)
from C to NC plunger extended
from C to NO plunger depressed.

If this switch is good then there is a problem with door hinge wiring or control panel wiring.
My bet the door switch has failed.

There are 12 models of this french door refrigerator.

We have a ge pds20mcr bottom freezer ref and have a foul odor coming from the bottom of ref.


If the odor is only present from the bottom of the fridge, and not inside the freezer or when it is shut, it is most likely spoiled something. Put everything in a few coolers, cover with ice and close up, spray out the fridge with some cleaner and let the freezer defrost if there is ice buildup on racks or surfaces. After the fridge is clean, I suggest using a box of baking soda to keep odors out of your fridge. Arm & Hammer recommends replacing these boxes every 30 days, but I've had mine in there for 6 months or so and it helps.
