SOURCE: TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.

P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

SOURCE: where is the thermostat on a GE profile refrigerator Side-by-Side

There is no thermostat ( cold control ) on your model refrigerator . It works off thermistors ( 3 in the refrig section and 2 in the freezer section ) . These thermistors , operate by the coldness which in turn , less resistance to the main control board the colder or warmer it will provide .

SOURCE: ge profile refrigerator door stop isn't working

Did it ever work or for some reason you never noticed it before? I've had to swap the door stops to get the door to stop. They can usually be swapped around according to what's needed in different situations.

My LG fridge model lfx25976sw isn't cooling. Coils are clean. Both fans working. Full of refrigerant. Feels as if the compressor is on (can feel vibrating upon touch) what's my next step?

U sure the compressor is running? Have feeling it is not - try replacing the start capacitor/relay in fridge.

And how do you know it is full of refrigerant? Did you load it with freon? If so, hope you were very exact with the charge amount since refrigerators need the exact correct amount of freon to work. That is why when they are gassed up the charge is weighed on a scale before insertion.

How to add Freon to a Air Conditioner or Refrigeration System

Adding Freon to an air conditioner or refrigeration system takes very specialized equipment and years of would be impossible and irresponsible of me to try to tell you how to do it through a computer.

Let me explain this further….
In small refrigeration systems such as you have in a refrigerator or a beveage cooler, the amount of freon in the system can often be measured in ounces of weight. Many times, just a few ounces. To get these charged correctly takes tons of experience and very finely tuned equipment. Just removing the hoses can release enough freon to make the difference between the system working or not working. Very sensitive scales are needed to weigh in the freon. To make sure the correct amount of freon is in the system, the system must be evacuated to a complete vacum. You need to have a special pump to do this.

To add to this, most small refrigeration systems are factory charged and sealed. They do not have access ports built into the system. To do anything to these system an access port must be correctly placed in the system for proper evacuation and charging. Then also add the the equation the fact that if you need to add freon to your system, where did the exsisting freon go? Finding and fixing very small leaks also takes sophisticated detection equipment.

The next problem is the many different types of freon that are used today. Some equipment has the type used, very clearly marked, but many do not. Only knowledge and experience can tell what type freon is in the system, and then it can be very difficult sometimes.

Air conditioning systems can be a bit more forgiving, but are getting more and more difficult to analyze and figure out exactly what is going on. The many types of refrigerant and variable speed compressors are making troubleshooting very difficult. Add temperature sensors and variable speed condenser fan motors into the mix and it becomes a nightmare.

Heat Pumps are very sensitive to either under or over charging. The only correct way to charge a heat pump is to evacuate the system and weigh in the correct charge.

Leaks in heat pumps or air conditioners are often very difficult to find, also. But finding a leak and fixing to correctly is the only way to achieve a successful repair of an air conditioning or heat pump unit.

So hopefully now you can see that refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pump system charging is not something that can easily be done without the proper training and equipment.
Oh, and did I also mention that it is illegal to handle and repair any type of system the contains any type of refrigerant with out a refrigerant handling certification in the United States? Yes, and the although rarely anyone has been charged, it still is the law.

Please call for a certified repair technician to repair any refrigeration system and do not try to do it yourself.

Fixed a freon leak, no tag to tell me amount of refrigerant charge. how much do I weigh in?

call manufacturer for weight of refrigerant or charge it by the pressure r134a = low side around 5psi(will drop while freezer gets colder) and high side 165-175psi.

Fridge stop cooling , found that the charge in the compressor was very low, recharge with 5 oz and now the copper line is freezing , i unplugged it for about 2 hours and retry same freezing issue

First check and make sure that you use the right amount of freon. Freezing line is an indication of not enough freon. Also check the manufacturer's label for the correct amount to add. Make sure you weigh the refrigerant carefully while charging. You may want to obtain the refrigerant Pressure/Temperature chart to make sure you have the correct pressure. Allow refrigerator to run for a while and check pressure versus temperature. Correct pressure as needed to stop freezing.

How do mi check the freon

Refrigerators don't need freon added to them unless there is a leak and until you find and repair the leak you have not fixed the problem.

A lot of people think when their refrigerator is not cooling that they need to add freon. This is not normally the case 99% of the time. You are a lot more likely to have a defrost problem or a fan problem if your refrigerator is not cooling.

If you actually do need freon, call a reputable professional. There are a lot of guys out there that will just add freon because you told them it needed it, charge the heck out of you and then leave. Be careful about telling some jack leg that you need freon.

GE GSF25XGR Everything seems to be functioning properly, compressor is running. have supplied freon but its not moving thru the lines.

you mean, it where not able to completely frozen the layers?

if that is the case then your Freon charge might be under charge, it should be atleast 18 to 20 psi the backl pressure of your freon charge when it is running and it can only be measured using gauge manifold, your technician should know about it.

worst case scenario is your compressor might be Loss Compression (mechanical failure) Yes it is running but it cannot make pressure (valve problem)

I have a GE model# GSH25JFXJ that I have had for around 3 months and have only been able to use it for a total of about a week. The freezer works ok but the fridge side keeps getting warmer even all the...

1. If you are cutting the system open, like installing a new compressor, repairing a leak, or install a new filter drier, yes, the system would be pumped into a vacuum, but just to add refrigerant, no you can add some without pumping the system into a vacuum.
2. If the freezer side works, the sealed system should be fine. On most refrigerators, all the cooling takes place in the freezer, and the fan in the freezer blows some of that air into the refrigerator section to cool it. It sounds as if you have an air flow issue. I would check the air dampner at the very top back left side of the refrigerator section to see if it is stuck in the closed position, preventing air from entering the fresh foods section. (air exits back out the bottom left back into the freezer compartment)
3. If this unit is indeed under one year old, call GE to request they dispatch a different service tech to assess the situatiion. Try 1-800-386-1215.
4. Oh, almost forgot. The proper factory charge of refrigerant in the system is listed on the model / serial number tag. It will be listed as something like 3.2 or 4.15 Oz (or similar amount) of R-134A. Once extra refrigerant is added or removed, the only way to get an acurate charge is to evacuate the entire system (into a vacuum) and re-charge it with the exact amount of refrigerant.

How do i charge a AMANA Ptac with R22 freon

Also, if you get caught working on ANY freon based refrigeration without a license, you could face a large fine. Freon isn't $3 per pound anymore, it's quite expensive and you don't want any of it wasted. Have a licensed technician do the work. He will know exactly how much refrigerant your system needs, and he can remove what's there and add to it.
