Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

We have this side by side where the freezer is not working (too warm) but the fridge side works normally. There were a few icicles along the interior back wall but all else seemed normal. Any ideas?

A kenmore side by side model 106 5661 2500 has warm refer and cold freezer


If the freezer temps are normal and the refrigerator is warmer than normal, the the air flow from freezer to refrigerator is being hampered either by ice on the evaporator or the freezer is stuff in such a way that normal airflow between freezer and fridge is hampered. If the auto defrost is not working properly you will have warmer freezer temps and a relatively warm refridge. Check the defrost timer and defrost heater element.

The freezer department is making snow and the vents blocked with ice. now the refrigerator compartment is warm. i have the freezer temp on cold and the refrigerator between normal and colder. what should i...


If the freezer is cold the compressor is Ok. Now if its a two door fridge . Open both the doors while the fridge is On. Press the lower door switch ( the lower light should turn off and you should hear the fan humming sound come on ). While holding the door switch pressed close the freezer door, you should see cold air come out of the slits in the back of the lower compartment. If not icicles have blocked the passages due to the non working of the heating coil.The heating cycle is controlled by the timer switch located near the compressor at the back. Unplug the fridge and remove the timer switch.Note the color of the wires and mark on the old switch. Replace and it will work.Only frost free fridges have heating cycle.

The cold air passage in a modern fridge is made out of thermocole . It will take you more than 24 hours of defrosting to remove the ice. I had to use a hair dryer to melt the ice even after 30 hours. Thermocole is a fantastic insulator.If you want to avoid melting the insulator blow air into the vent from the refrigerator compartment using a vacuum cleaner in blower mode ( reverse mode ). After a few minutes of blowing,hot air will come from the vacuum cleaner which should do the trick

Outer portion of divide between freeze & fridge where door seals rest when doors are closed very hot


This normal. The heat you feel is very important in keeping the influx of warm from infiltrating the refrigerator. The barrier ensures that you will not experience any frost or icicles in you freezer.

Frig not stayng cool. Freezer not freezing


most fridges have a evaporator dish or container.
it must be emptied ...and cleaned and disinfected.

now-a -days they are usually mated with the compressor and cool this unit down. notice there is no coil along the back of the fridge...it is usiually behind the fridge at the bottom with a cardboard or plastic access cover...
this will make the unit cool better and return the cooling to normal....
\next
clean out your freezer...i bet it's full of 4 month old packs of something you'll never eat....this will let the freezer breathe and circulate air to the coil ...i bet it has 3 in of ice on it...yikes...your not alone...most people do this...\
get a freezer if your getting ready for the apocalypse and liberate some room.
good luck

Maytag side by side model GS24C8C3EV Refrigerator too warm


it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit
