Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Good day! I have a GS5shaxnloo side by side SS refrigerator. I've been noticing for the past week that my ice cream is too soft. We've cleaned and vaccumed, made sure no vents are covered, etc.. Any suggestions as to what else we can try before the refrig stops all together? Thank you. Bill

I have a Taylor C713 Ice Cream Machine. IT has been working great until a few days ago. We had it in standby overnight and when we came back the next morning, the ice cream in one side was rotten from...


Those are symptoms of the mix refrigeration system being undercharged. You will need a refrigeration technician to add refrigerant.

In Taylor soft serve machines when the left side hopper (standing in front of the machine) is icing up and the right side hopper is not cold enough, the problem is low refrigerant in that system. It takes R134A.

Model TFH30PRTA NOT KEEPING ICE CREAM FROZEN


Ice cream will get hard when the temperature is closer to - 20 C or -1 F scale. Water becomes Ice at 0 C or 32 F scale.

Ice cream soft means your freezer is not cooling enough.

You were cleaning the coils? Both condenser and evaporator coils? Cleaning coils and then loosing cooling in the fridge is not a good sign or combination. May be there is a freon leak and the seal system is low on freon now.

Call a service tech to check the seal system.

Unfortunately, if it is a leak you may eventually buy a new fridge after spending money on freon fill up, freon system sealant, leak check etc etc... No good news. Sorry

Freezer side not working properly.. It works for a while freezing and then it stops freezing. For Example: ice cream solid, then later (couple hours later), we notice ice cream is soft to runny.

Freezer is not working. Ice maker is working. Started noticing the past 2 weeks that ice cream is melting. Refrigerator is working but not keeping things really cold. The unit is only 3 years old.


ice mker will soon quit as when ice cream is soft the tempt is rising . look for frost build up in back wall of freezer . if so the heaters have failed ( very common ) . they will have to be replaced . there is a new style that replaces mose G E heaters . and they are much better .. mm

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft


Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

Bottom freezer not keeping ice cream frozen


Check out freezer temp - should be around zero degrees. Fact that ice maker is still working would indicate that the temps are at least about 10 degrees. If the door seals are tight and the self defrosting mechanism is working properly, the unit may be low on refrigerant. I had similar situation where stuff was frozen but my ice cream was mushy even though unit was running 24 hours a day.

Water freezing at bottom of freezer, food not freezing


maybe? yeah but have you checked that the drainage hole is is clean and clear from any trapped dirt, that is sometimes a major problem, it stopped my freezer from functioning for weeks!! but the day i cleared it the water was gone, and the freezer was working as good as new!
