You have a bad overload/relay which plugs onto the side of the compressor . About $40.00 . Take your model number with you when you go to get the part , so you get the correct part . It is easily replaceable , with 2 wires , or , a plug with 2 wires .

The only thing that can be wrong when nothing is cooling is a leak in the system. The cost to find the leak is around 400.00. Sorry for the bad news, but that saved you 65 to125 bucks that it would cost for a technician to come to your house and tell you the same thing I just told you. Rate me. Sorry for the bad news.

Compressor is HOT, coil is not warm


Check to see if the fan is running down in the back by the compressor, if it isn't put a small fan back there blowing on the compressor, also make sure the compressor is running you can unplug it and block the fan by the compressor wait a few minutes and plug it back in so you can hear the compressor to see if it is running. if it hums and then clicks you probably have a bad relay and overload assy.

Freezer not freezing, fan in rear bottom of unit not running, condenser extremely hot to touch. ge gdl20kcsabs


Hi, If the compressor is running but the fan is not, you will need to replace the fan motor. First make sure that there is nothing stopping the fan blade.
If you have a window or box fan, let it blow on the compressor to cool it down. This will help you get by until you can replace the condensor fan motor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hot to touch


there is another fan at the bottom, rear, of the refigerator. remove the bootom panel and look at the cooling fins to make sure they are not bent into the fan blades. Caefully bend the fins away from the fan. this should improve the cooling of the refrigerator and get rid of the hot spot on the rail between the refrigerator and freezer.

Refridgerator/Freezer stopped cooling


if the compressor was very hot to the touch, suspect you have a compressor fault

Compressor is extremely hot


Compressor will be hot to the touch. You stated the fan was replaced and then said the fan is not cooling. If you replaced the fan and it is now operating, reinstall the panel you removed to install the fan motor. That panel determines proper air circulation to cool the system.
