Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a GE SxS model number gss22jepabb that doesn't keep the refrigerator part cold. We have replaced both thermistors in the freezer and last night the motherboard. Refrigerator is still not cold and the freezer randomly defrosts itself. Also, we have replaced the defrost heater and timer. We have had the appliance for eight years and have about 300 dollars in repairs into it. Do you have any other ideas other than blowing the thing up??

Close the doors and look to see if the fresh food door is down lower then the freezer door. If it is adjust the fresh food down up until it is at the same level as the freezer door. The reason why I suggest this is hard to explain but it is a legitimate repair. This page does explain Look under the section titled damper/door switch.

    The doors were level and needed no adjustment. Now the upper part of refrigerator is about 65 degrees and the bottom is about 40 degrees. I am concerned that when we replaced the motherboard, we may have blown it again. How can I tell if the first or second motherboard has gone bad? Should there be something visual to indicate the damage? I hate to give up on this refrigerator, but it is driving us crazy... thanks for your help..

Zis480mnc ge monogram built in refer temp varies from 34 to 48 several times a day.

Try replacing that evap thermistor. The diagnostics on thermistors can be wrong. If it is rounded on the end, replace it. There is a damper between the freezer and refrigerator. There may be a refrigerator fan motor in the damper assembly, It could be bad. It could be a bad control board. When you run diagnostics there is one function that checks all the fans.

If you have cold temps and humidity sometimes the coils freeze up and you need to unplug your refrigerator until the ice on the coil melts, clean the coils and plug in, you may overflow your condensate pan, so you might need a towel if it does.

The refrigerator is not cooling

If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

GE refrigerator won't keep cool

check the voltage going into you fan w/ the old main board and also w/ the new board. You might be getting a low voltage w/ your new board or the fan you replaced is for a diferent voltage. Have you tried to put the old fan back w/ the new board??

GE SXS Fridge/Freezer

if the fan in the freezer compartment is not running theres a problem.
verify power to the fan motor, if present replace fan motor.
if not hopefully theres a wiring schematic/diagram so you could trace that circuit back to the control board and verify whether thats bad or not..
generally though if the fan by the compressor is running the fan in the freezer should also be spinning and have power..
by the way, it states in the parts listing that it is a dc motor

hope this helps,
best of luck,

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 .

Refrigerator suddenly not cold, freezer seems fine.

Sometimes this happens when the control board located on the back is defective. The board part number is WR55X10656
