The model number on our frig is RT21LMXKQO5. Water is constantly dripping from the freezer into the frigerator.We put a towel on the top shelf of the frigerator and the water ends up freezing on the towel....


You have a plugged defrost water drain. you will have to turn off unit, remove evaporator panel in freezer and **** out/clear drain hole for defrost water. pour some hot water down drain. Not an expensive repair you may want to get someone mechanically inclined to help

The frigerator & freezer are not cooling properly . i hear the compressor running . i have also diconnected cleanned inside and out but still the unit is not cooling properly . even on higest settings


If the compressor is running almost all the time (and the compressor sounds ok - no pinging/clunking),
then your side-by-side has developed a coolant leak.

When a system is low on coolant, the thermostat detects the warm condition of the refrigerator, and
runs the compresor motor in an attempt to cool off the refrigerator compartment, but if there's little
or no refrigerant in the system, the system's attempt to cool off the refregerator/freezer will fail,
with the symptom that the user wil hear the compressor motor running constantly.

IT WILL NOT COOL OR FREEZE, DIGITALPANEL IS SHOWING 52 TOP AND 39 IN FREEZER. FANS ARE GOING BUT NO COOL AIR NOR IS THE FRIGERATOR RUNNING. ECH SAYS NEW COMPUTER BOARD IS NEEDED IS THIS TRUE?


I was having the same problem .What I found was the coils were dirty and needed to be clean also the overload relay switch and the capacitor were bad.The overload relay and capacitor are next to the compressor. Replace them and you should be cool again.

Freezer freezes and won't cool either freezer or refrigerator.


On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), the evaporator coils froze over due to constant running of the compressor. The compressor was constantly running due to a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side of the unit. The sensor was apparently reading too hot, thus never signalling the computer that it should stop trying to cool.

This could be what the original poster was attempting to describe.

Refrigerator is warm on the inside


hello mam
if the refrigerator is not cooling we should check the freezing coolant in the compressor and if necessary that should be refilled.

Refrigerator is freezing up inside at the top.


check the seal on the door it might be that because when the water vapor in the air gets in it will freeze on the top.

Frigerator is freezing.


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is too much cold air getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is open too much.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side

2. The cold control is bad causing the compressor to run too much.
