SOURCE: refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold - perhaps not all the way

Sounds like a defrost problem or dirty coils under the machine. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

SOURCE: GE Monogram freezer side working but refrigerator side is not.

Did you clean the condenser?  Is the unit FULLY defrosted?   Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit?  If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more.  R12 is expensive.
Check gas level:  Shut unit for at least one hour.  View compressor.  Several pipes...we're looking at the largest.  Start the unit.  This pipe will begin to frost.  If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low.  Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.

SOURCE: my freezers works but my refrigerator

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

SOURCE: Refrigerator does not get cold - GE side by side

In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.

It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.

Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.

The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

Model ZFSB26DNA SS Side by side / refrigerator and freezoe not able to get cool enough. Refrigerator side temp 49 freezer temp 7


refrigerators run from 5 to 10 degrees C so your machine is on the upper limit of 9 degrees c
the freezer is at minus 13 degrees c and most work down to minus 20 degrees c so that is in limits
Get a technician in to check the thermostats and in the mean time check the condition of the door seals as they will loose the cold very easily is cracked or not sealing properly

I have aGSS25XSSQA SS refrigerator seems to have stopped making cold.


Frost buildup on the rear panel of the freezer indicates a defrost problem. Your model has the defrost timer built into the motherboard and for some reason that is unlikely to fail. What does go bad is the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat on your GSS25XSSQASS. Click HERE to view the parts listed as location 240 and 230 GSS25XSSQASS Freezer Components

The defrost heater is listed as location 230 in photo Here is a Link=> WR51X10042 Defrost Heater Assembly

And next is the part in photo listed as location 240 That is the defrost thermostat=> WR50X10068 Defrost Thermostat

Instructions on how to test these parts can be found on the same page as the parts. If you have any questions please let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Frost developing around door of freezer in my ss built-in ge refrigerator


look for a mullion heater switch and turn it on, this heats the door frame and does not let it get so cold, it could also be called an Economicle switch or an exterior water control switch

Cold air not getting from Freezer to Fridge


I actually know nothing about refrigerators, but was able to fix the same exact problem where cold air was not getting to the fridge side of the side by side. The freezer was working just fine. I unplugged the fridge and freezer and tore all the shelving out to get behind a panel in the back of the inside of the freezer. There is a pass-through between the freezer and the refrigerator at the top back of the freezer on the side-by-side refrigerator. The passthrough was totally frozen over and blocking air from passing through and cooling the refrigerator side. I let it all de-thaw and then was able to pull the chunks of ice out, and all seems to be working great now. Be careful getting the ice chunks out as there are some controls there - it's probably best to just let it all thaw and melt by itself - which wouldn't require tearing all the shelving out. One could simply let the freezer dethaw for a day and then plug back in and both sides should work just fine.

GE side by side and it is not keeping the refrigerator cold


You have a fan not working. The fan moves cold air from the freezer side to the refg. side. eather the fan is bad or the T-stat. You will have to pull down your controls and ck wiring with a Volt meter.
