Question about GE Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have an old kenmore 363.9517821 model fridge, think it is GE. It just won't restart until everything thaws out then it starts back up and runs a few days. seems to gradually have to get warmer and warmer before it restarts. What part is slowly dying?

1st Thing to do: Use a vacuum to clean the bottom of the coils- Typically if the coils are full of dust the compressor will overheat and can fail to operate, this will also cause compressor a delay time to start. 2nd- Make sure bottom fan is working, this unit cools compressor temperatures, if the fan has failed compressor will short cycle, causing food to melt ect.

Fridge and freezer not cold. Everything thawing in freezer.


is the compressor running,if not you need a start device,call your part store,give them the model number and next time send it here also and they'll tell you what overload and relay you need for your machine,if the compreesor is starting check to listen if the fan is blowing in the frezzer?or check the back wall of the freezer,if there's frost or snow on the inside back wall you have a defrost problem,bad timer,thermostat or heater or there could be a board in this fridge but i need the model number,good luck

GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?


OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Lights on, sounds like running, everything thawed


Check your compressor, the relay and the computer board. These are all located at the back of the fridge if all check out ok, then check your thermostat

Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough


You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
