Question about Frigidaire 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with Factory Installed Ice Maker

Open Question

We have a ESS25LGNAww GE Eterna side by side frig. We have replaced the mother board thinking that was the problem, not much difference. Problem is the Freezer is set on 1 and is frozen harder than it should be at that temp. Icemaker is working but the water dispenser won't work. Most importantly, the upper part of the frig is too warm, ie 50 degrees, but the produce drawer freezes the fresh veggies solid. It is set on 8 at present. The damper between the fridge and the freezer opens and closes periodically. Had to superglue it at one point because it was such a flimsy design and broke off. What could be the problem. The thermostats and defrost have all been changed in the last yr or so too.

CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR YOUR EVAPORATOR FAN RUNNING (INSIDE MOTOR). IF IT IS NOT RUNNING ... AND YOUR COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING. THE MOTOR OR DEFROST TEMENATION SWICTH COULD BE DEFECTIVE. IF NOTHING IS RUNNING ... TRY TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER(USUALLY LOCATED WHERE YOUR COLD CONTROLS ARE) YOU SHOULD SEE A SMALL HOLE WHERE YOU CAN MANUALLY TURN THE TIMER WITH A SCREW DRIVER.IT CAN ONLY TURN IN ONE DIRECTION. IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. CHECK TO SEE IF COMPRESSOR IN THE BACK IS RUNNING ... IF IT ISNT AND IS "HOT" (BE CAREFULL) SEE IF THE CONDENSER MOTOR NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING ... IF NOT ... THE COND. MOTOR IS BAD ... THAT MOTOR RUNS IF POWER IS GOING TO THE COMPRESSOR ALWAYS. IF COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND NOT RUNNING AND COND. FAN IS RUNNING .... UN PLUG FRIG AND WAIT TILL COMPRESSOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. THESE COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR IF IT SHORT CYCLES.IT SOMETIMES GETS SO HOT IT DOES TAKE HOURS TO COOL OFF. THERE IS ALSO A DEFROST-TERMINATION SWITCH THAT CAN GO BAD. CONSULT A LICSESED FACTORY CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GIVE YOU A FIXED-PRICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST.

SOURCE: frigidaire freezer cold, refrig in 50's.

Yes pull the refrigerator away from wall and feel top of the compressor. Is it too hot to touch? Are bot fans running. Straight wire the thermostat to see if it is causing this. The start relay and start capacitor may be the reason. Let me know by email you response because Fixya has not been notifying me of any ones response to my solutions. I just found you made a response. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem.

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

SOURCE: loud ticking noise when i close freezer and lights

if your lights burned out recently and the digital temp read-out is now dark also,burned out lights will cause a power surge and will destroy the main-board circuit trace(mother-board), it is located in the back side of the refrigerator, in a small plastic case,when you remove it you will see a burned spot on the circuit board and the loud clicking sound is a relay on the board trying to latch to light the bulbs and operate the unit

Unplug the refrigerator and then plug back in. Using multimeter check between J3-1 and J3-4.
Must be done within 10 seconds of starting. You should have 6 VDC. If you do replace damper, if not replace motherboard.

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling


Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

Ice dispenser will not shut off


If yours has a dispenser control board it would be suspect. Do you know what the model number of your GE is? With that I will be able to trace down all the different possibilities. Most ice makers are mechanical arm up switch is off. let me know, Sea Breeze

Frig lights on but not cooling


The GSH25JRF uses a mother control board and we need to unplug and have a look for burn mark on both sides of the board. The board has 2 different numbers for the same board. WR55X10942 or PT number 1531075 Main Control Board. The board is located behind your refrigerator and under a covered panel screwed down with sheet metal screws. We will need to also look at the start relay and start capacitor if the board looks OK on both sides. Here is what to look for on the board, burn marks, signs of heat or loose solder connections. Let me know if I can help you more I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze
