Question about Refrigerators
The other day I woke up to find water all over my floor, and came to realize my freezer had melted overnight. I have a GE side by side fridge, the fan is still running, however the fridge is barely cold and the freezer will not freeze anything. Someone else on here seemed to have the same problem as me, and she was told to check if the relay was broken. It was in fact the problem. I don't know where or what the relay is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
In most cases when the freezer stops suddenly it is caused by the compressor. The compressor is located in the back at the bottom. The compressor uses a relay and start copacitor. This could be the problem with yours. If you would like I can get you a part number and retail price for you. Just send me a model #. There is also a universal hard start kit or 3 in 1 kit you can use. In some cases the 3 in 1 can help start a stuck or slowining compressor.
One other thing to consider before you attempt any repairs. Try to see if the compressor is running. If it is running then this is not your problem. Also Ge refrigerators have a 5 year warranty on the compressor. They will pay for parts and you pay for labot to replace if you have a bad compressor.
If the refrigerator gradually stopped cooling then you may just have a defrost problem. Hope this helps MCA0824@aol.com
