Question about GE Monogram ZISx420DR 42-inch Side by Side Panel Ready Built-In Refrigerator with Dispenser

Open Question

I have the GE Monogram Z1SB42DY. The front of the wall that separates the freezer from the refrigerator is so hot it can burn your hand! We noticed this starting to happen over the last few weeks. We were having trouble keeping the temps consistent. I turned the temp control to the freezer off and tin about 15 minutes, all of the separation wall was now cold. I then turned the freezer temp up to 4 and within 3 minutes, the front of the wall was hot to the touch. Also, the ice maker stopped working late last week. I cleaned the condenser and coils (I did notice corrosion at the bottom of the big black part (I'm not sure what it is). Also, GE came out in '08 and installed the Icing Kit. Any input would be helpful! Thanks

SOURCE: GE Monogram ZISB36DYB Freezer Not Cold Enough; Burning Center

Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .

I have a 10 year old GE Monogram refrig. We noticed a small puddle of oily liquid on floor beneath freezer door. It is accumulating about 1 tsp/day.


certain amount of oil is in the compressor motor casing to stop it burning out
it is under the same pressure as the refrigerant

I would say the oil comes from that casing
you could turn the fridge off at the wall
bring the fridge out to get behind it
and degrease the area to see if the leak is severe

if it is..... needs a fridge technician

not sure
check if cost of replacing the motor compressor unit
on a ten year old ge
might be more that fridge is worth

Ge zisw48dyb hot to touch on middle bar front between doors


Pull the refrig out and remove the lower panel . Check that the fan motor is working and no object is blocking the blade to keep it from turning . If your compressor is a top model , remove the top cover and check the fan motor and coils for dust coverage .

The fan behind the fridge at the bottom which cools the compressor , is not turning . Remove the back panel covering the compressor and see if something is blocking the blade . If not , motor is bad , so put a small fan there to keep the coils and compressor cool until you can get a new motor .

GE Monogram will not accept freezer/fridge


Turns out the problem was because we didn't shut the freezer door tightly. The temperature re4set itself in about three hours. All OK and no expense :-)

Freezer door is canted forward. This separates the gasket from the frame and allows air in. Large amount of frost build up.
