My GE side by side door seals are hot. Last week, I vaccumed underneath and cleaned ice that had accumulated inside the bottom of the freezer. The drain hold was clogged. I poured 1/2 cup of warm soapy...


It sounds like the defrost circuit is on. Usually this circuit comes on every 8 hours or so and runs for about 20 minutes - or until a thermal sensor on (or near) the actual freezer coil rises to about 50 degrees F - whichever happens first.

The defrost circuit on some fridges not only activate the defrost heater in the freezer coil compartment - but one or more small heaters in the fridge cabinet door jambs where moisture is likely to form on humid days. Some fridges have a selector switches that enable or disable these "moisture control" heater(s). In any case, the defrost should not be on all the time.

Rising temperature in the freezer / fresh food compartment can be the result of a dirty condenser coil. Depending on the fridge, the condenser coil may be viewed and cleaned (vacuumed) from lower front (after removing the toe space bezel) or from the rear - behind an easily removed cover - often made of a thick cardboard / fiber material. You should only vacuum and clean the coils, fan blades, etc. when the fridge unplugged.

The fans that blow cold air from the freezer into the fresh food compartment may no longer be spinning - due to disconnected wires, motor failure or physical obstruction.

The defrost circuit timer may have become stuck in the defrost mode. Even though the thermal sensor will stop the heat once it reaches 50 degrees - if the timer is stuck - it will never enable the compressor. Defrost related repairs are cheap compared to a compressor failure.

Lastly, the compressor or refrigerant lines may have failed. This can be a costly fix. I hope this helps and good luck!

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

The freezer temp is fine but the fridg temp is 50 degrees. It will not get colder than that. I have left it off for 24 hours to defrost and turned it back on and this did not solve the problem.

You have a defrost problem. Refrigerator gets cold via freezer. If blocked with frost, will restrict cold air into refrigerator.

Traulsen URS 48 DT Freezer in Freeze/Thaw Cycle/Fridge Side O.K.


I'm not intently familiar with this particular brand, but here's some ideas to check. If the thermostat sticks on, the freezer coils can freeze, blocking air flow and jamming circulation fan. This will cause the temp in freezer compartment to rise. When the ice on the coils thaw, the compartment starts to cool again, but the cycle will continue. Another thought is if this unit has a defrost timer that could be defective. Without seeing the unit, it's hard to determine the exact cause.
Hope this helps.
