Question about GE Profile 23.1 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - High-Gloss White

1 Answer

Model #GSS20IEMB WW. Neither freezer nor frig are cooling... all above 32 degrees. May have over-heated due to freezer door left ajar. Is there a reset button, or other solution to kick start it. Motor is running.

I have Samsung fridge model RS267LBSH. The freezer works but why won't the frig side cool?


If the door temp is reading low then it will not cool as that is the temperature the fridge thinks it is at (regardless of the real temperature). Try setting the door temp lower and see if there is still a 14 degree difference between the 2 readings. If it does cool down further and the difference is the same then I would suspect the thermostat.

Refrigerator starts cooling mainly when I open the door


Put a thermometer in both the freezer and the fridge. Fridge should be around 40F if not a little lower, but should stay above 30F.

Freezer should be just below 30.

Where is the defrost timer on a GE model gss20iemb ww


Good day,
Doesn't have one. It functions thru a motherboard mounted on the bottom back rear of the machine.
Normally 5 thermistors are used (3 in the freezer 2 in the fresh food compartment) to operate the machine.
Defrosting cycles are controlled by the motherboard with the input as well from compressor running time and the number of door openings.

Front end of divider between refrigerator and freezer is getting very hot to the touch. both sides still working okay... just concerned that the frig may burn out or cause an electrical fire.


The area you are describing is the breaker panel, inside is a heater called a mullion. The purpose of this heater is to control any moisture that may form due to the temp difference (Dew Point) inside and out. This excessive heat you are noticing is a for-warning of bad things to come (compressor damage, spoiled food). The most common reason is not keeping the condenser (different types, designs and locations depending on make and model) clean. Recommend inspect and service every 4 - 6 months. A condenser brush (looks like a over sized bottle brush) and a vacuum with a wand is used. If never done before, service front and back, mybe power clean with reverse blowing vacuum after getting the heavy stuff out. After cleaning, give 24 hours, if no major damage to compressor or condenser fan motor, the system should return to normal, breaker panel will cool to average 10 - 15 dgs above ambiant. Other issues that it could be; weak compressor, bad - intermittantly operating condenser fan, doors intermittantly left ajar, bad - low RPM evap fan motor, cavity lights on when doors closed.

We left the frig door ajar for 6 hrs, now the frig isn't working but the freezer is... where is the reset button? Thanks!!


Hi, No reset button. Check and make sure the evaporator fan motor inside the freezer is running. While checking that, look and see if there is any frost build up on the rear panelin the freezer. Please let me know if any of these are the case so I can asist you further.
Thanks

Ice Maker stopped working


You need to defrost the freezer. By the door being ajar, there was excessive ice build up on the coil that was not removed during a system defrost resulting in a blocked coil. This caused the temperature to rise in the freezer above twelve degrees that is why the ice maker stopped.
