Question about General Electric GTR16BBSR Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have two chess freezers that both worked last spring and they got empty so I unpluged them and clean them. Now nither one of them will come on and get cold. not even a little bit I turned one upside down as I had heard some times they get a vapor lock. Left it upside down over night but this didn't help. Any Idea why they both would quit on is only two years old.

I don't know if this will help, I have found this to be common Problem and have checked several things on units I have encountered. First you need to know the safe way to check for power with the panel off the unit. A Voltage tick will work in a pinch, Some models have contactors or relays these can be the core problem... Next with a gentle tap with mallet on the compressor has fixed a few ( Not even going to explane why?) Last and this is not that hard to understand... Are you sure the power is on to that plug.... Fixed a few that for no reason the breaker was tripped or off... worth a check!

Freezer started defrosting and the sides where burning hot. I emptied it and unplugged it. The next day i plugged it in again and it froze a water bottle rather quickly but the sides where still burning...


Your defrost timer has stuck to on position, replace timer and all good or locate timer and spray lubricant into the dial and turn it several times with unit off, then try it after several hours, quick fix only but may last several years...good luck...Russ

Last week our electricity was down for some time. Then Ice from freezer fall down from and fridge stop cooling


Hi

These units rely on air being transferred from the freezer to the fridge, so to make sure that the air ways are clear follow the steps below.
1. Empty the fridge and freezer and store the food elsewhere.
2. Switch off and unplug the unit and leave for 24 to 36 hours with the doors held slightly open. You may get quite a lot of water on the floor, you just need to mop it up, this is normal.
3. Wipe out the inside of both sides to leave them clean and dry.
4. Plug in and switch on, wait around 4 hours.
5. Re stock the unit it should be OK.

If there is still a problem please come back to me

Regards

Freezer goes through a cycle and get warm. The ice will start melting and create a mess when the freezer start to cool agian. Temperture in frig and freezer does not hold cool.


Unplug, empty, clean and let set for 24 hours to defrost the cooling coil that is froze solid overwhelming the heater and not letting it work. if the air can't circulate it will not cool. Check door gasket, or tell kids to stop holding the door open as this will cause it to frost up and cause the problem you're having.. Trust me, It works.

GE refrigerator not cold enough, again!


I emptied the freezer, unscrewed the freezer floor, pushed it out of the way, and saw the ice, just like last time. So I poured hot water over the ice, made sure the ice was all melted, even from below (under refrigerator), and put the floor back in - works fine, for now!
