My fridge (GE GSL25) is not cooling/freezing enough. The lower refrigerator is cold enough but the upper trays are not. The lower freezer compartment is freezing enough to keep ice frozen but the upper compartments are not.

Hi

Please check the bellow link to have an in-depth knowledge to diagnose your problem to your refrigerator…

http://www.repairclinic.com/Refrigerator-Troubleshooting#Thefreezercompartmentisicingup

The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons …..
The fan or blower has failed or the coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.

The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
or the heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working.
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.

For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it’s own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
The fan or blower ,The timer device ,The electric heater coil.


Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

    I think the frozen coils may be the problem because there is frost on the back panel of the freezer compartment. The bottom part is freezing but the top part of the freezer is not. I do hear a gurgling sound in the freezer.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Westinghouse RJ275M 194l fridge with top 81l freezer doesn't keep the fridge cold anymore. Freezer is fine. is it the thermostat?


If the upper compartment, the freezer part is open on the ends and the rest of the refrigerator is cold enough, that can't be fixed. If the the box is closed on the ends seperate, check the flow control of air if it has one, check the thermostat and set it till things nearly freeze in the lower non frozen section. If all this doesn't work and you can't keep the ice cream turning to milk, gotta get a new refrigerator.

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.
