Question about GE Profile PFS22MIW French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

We had a power outage which lasted 45min - 1 hour. We never opened the refrigerator doors until the power came back on. At which point the temperature inside the refrigerator had already gone up 15 degrees. Is this a common problem with this model? And what can be done to fix it. I have no control over the power outages and I don't want to loose hundreds of dollars in food next time there is a longer outage.

Check and clean your fridge door seals as they may be dirty, have perished/not flexible or even crack.
All doors should also close with a positive 'hermetic' feel: check and remove any obstruction.
You can check the firmness of the seal round the door with a thin piece of plastic or cardboard wedge between the seal and door 'frame'.
Hope it helps.

    you have a bottom freezer and when the power is out cold cannot get to refrigerator. Top freezers are less likely to have that as cold air falls. In your case the freezer stays colder. If you have an icemaker you could bag or metal pan ice and put in fridge top shelf. Also find supplier for dry ice for extended issues.

Why did the control panel go dark on my Maytag side by side refrigerator for a couple of hours?


Ron,
You're right to be concerned but I'd just keep an eye on it for the time being - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! It's entirely possible that it's throwing a hissy fit after the power outages and it just needs peace and quiet so it can settle down!

Whirlpool WRF560SEYB Refrigerator did not turn back on after power outage, display said "cooling off"


Sounds like you had a power outage?-- did the lights go dim for a few minutes, before the power actually went out?-- Sometimes, low voltage will cause the compressor motor to over heat-- so it might have to 'cool down'-- What happened next?-- Did you try it again an hour or so later/-- Tell us more-- Mack B

Hello Wayne, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Was the freezer unplugged during the power outage? If it was, here are some simple troubleshooting steps you need to take:

It is best to unplug the unit and wait for the power to come back on.

Next, turn the control to off (or digital display), plug the unit in and reset control to factory-suggested setting.

Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. Make sure the refrigerator plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet and not plugged into a GFI.

If your unit has no power and it is not due to a power outage, check the following:

Verify that the temperature control is set to the OFF position.
Set temperature controls to proper setting suggested by your owner's guide; or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed.

If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, the power loss may have possibly caused a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or wiring harness. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

The power outage usually takes the parts out that were trying to go or out of a cycle. Like one of the defrost parts. You may have a timer and/or t-stat that was probably blown out. Or another thing could be your defrost bulbs may be blown out. Check the bulbs first. I hope this helps!

GE GTS22WCMBRCC, refrigerator and the freezer wont cool or freeze


possibly the drain tube for the condensate(water) is plugged due to ice having built up on freezer coils. Check coils to see if they are iced up. Sometimes especially in humid climates the defrost mechanism even if working gets overpowered by moisture. If so defrost coils manually and clear drain tube.

I have the same error on my U-Line beverage refrigerator. U-Line said the error indicates the thermostat was out of range for over 12 hours (perhaps due to a recent power outage). My fridge seems to be working just fine so I am not planning on calling a technician until something more serious breaks down.

It is unlikely that a power outage by itself will cause your problem. Recheck hour refrigerator thermostat. It should regulate to 38-42 degrees F. You can take an outdoor thermometer and put it into the fridge compartment, leave it for an hour or two and check. Adjust as necessary. If that doesn't fix it, we can proceed further.
