My GE Refrigerator doesn't work properly.


The two main causes for your problem is the control set wrong and the second one isthe defrost element has burned out... Sometime the defrost clock will go out as well.... always try to set your controls to midrange and if the bottom of the freezer compartment is cold and frosty but the refrigerator is cold ... Remove all the food and store in a backup refrigerator you can rent from an appliance rental center... Unplug your refrigerator and let it defrost for 48 hours.... In the mean time open up the doors and clean it from top to bottom. place a fresh opened box of arm and hammer baking soda in the frige side and one in the freezer side. Plug back in after completely deftosted and place a small plastic cup half filled with water on each shelf of the freezer. Close the doors and wait 8 hours... Open the freezer and check the plastic cups.... if they are all frozen great..now wait for 3 days do the test again if the bottom cup is frozen and the top shelf is not ... its time for a new defrost element or a defrost timer.

Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

Model CTX18GAZBRWW - (Hotpoint) no-frost - freezer on top Water collects under the vegetable drawers and must be removed every day.


Something to try....on the back wall of the fridge nearer to the top is a little cup like part sticking out. There is water in it but it usually runs down an attached tube inside back wall and ends up under the fridge and gets evaporated. If that tube or the little cup thing is plugged then it will drip in the fridge and collect on the inside bottom of the fridge. So the trick is to clean them out. Check it out ...may solve the problem.

Freezer frosts up and refrigerator wont stay cold. Must be defrosted..then works okay until Freezer frosts up again.


The auto defrost timer is faulty , you willhave to check the timer and teh corresponding circuit for worn out wires, bad thermostat or the defrost heaters. These circuits must be checked properly and the concerned spare can be tested for failure or malfunction. Even if the compressor is pumpiing too much to the bottom side freezer this can happen and stall the fcooling to the top section. Adjust the freezer temp lower and increase the blowing to the top section. Please check on all these suggestions and try. Helpful? Good day

Bottom freezer on Subzero refrigerator not thoroughly freezing


Ice cream needs to be kept colder than other stuff. Get a freezer thermometer, it's handy for the fridge too. Find and check your defrost timer. It's about the size of a cell phone, has about five wires going to it in one plug. On the back is a small dial that turns one way only. Mark it with white out and wait an hour to see if it moves. It moves real slow. If your freezer is frozen up and no air comes out of the coil area, you'll have to do a manual defrost of the freezer.
