Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a GE side by side Model GSS22JEMB WW. It was in the house when we bought so it was probably purchased when the house was new in 2001. For the past two years we have heard a screeching/groaning sound on occassion coming from it. We just thought it was the ice maker. Last night we noticed the ice cream was soft and there was frost on the inside of the back wall. I turned the thermostat to 0 and left it that way overnight. I turned it back on this morning and it seems to be cooling. Any ideas to prevent future problems?

That screeching noise you are hearing is the evaporator fan motor that is found in the freezer section behind the panel. If it is screeching, it means the motor is slowing down to the point that the ice can migrate up to the motor and ventually stop it. After defrosting properly(12 hours), remove back panel(in the freezer compartment) carefully aprox 4 screws. carefully pulling pannel out you will either see the motor on the panel being pulled out or fixed above the evaporator, screwed onto the fridge body. Remove and replace it with a new one. You can get away with it on a temporary repair by spraying Q20 (a solvent) to lubricate the motor shaft. Can sometimes last for months.Reinstall in reverse. Note, please remove plug from the wall Thanks.

First this refrigerator has very low consumer rating. They are plagued with problems with very poor company backing. But without be able to diagnosis the problem in person I would say it's the mother board. And you may find that GE has a new updated board for your appliance. I would go to Amazon.com and search for your motherboard for your refrigerator and read the reviews. Some people leave some great idea. Plus it you bought this refrigerator brand new you can fight with GE to send you a new board.

GE Frig model TFX20JRBK ww with icing on freezer


I would suggest fixing it . You only have 2 parts in the defrost system . A timer , and the defrost heater which comes with the bimetal , pt . # WR51X10031 .Most probable , is the defrost heater . You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel , and defrost the coils with a hair dryer . After defrosting , 2 screws hold each ( 2 ) heater on , ant the defrost thermostat , just clips onto the top of the coils .

Side by side refrigerator problem GSH25KGRB WW


I have the same problem with my GE fridge.  I inherited the fridge with the purchase of my house.  There is a coil located in the back of of the freezer.  Remove the wire shelves and remove the screws and remove the back panel inside of the freezer.  I can almost guarantee your coil is completely iced.  I just use a hardryer to remove the ice.  I need to perform this once every four weeks.  It's a bummer.

Frost on back wall of freezer, side by side, wont freeze


It's most likely a defrost issue. One or more of your defrost components have failed. Defrost components are defrost thermostat, defrost heater, and defrost timer or board depending on model
