Question about GE Profile Arctica 25.4 Cubic Feet Side-By-Side Refrigerator With Dispenser PSS25MGMWW

3 Answers

Problem- The upper shelves, on the freezer side, have become to narrow, and do not have a full bearing on the plastic interior ribs. I assume the walls have flexed outwards, since the shelf racks are metal. Question- how to correct?

    So you're saying, take the inner plastic out or the exterior metal cabinet off to expose the inner padding, then over pad the area, to flex the plastic walls back in. right?

    HI, the shelves are flat, square and not deformed.I think that I may have to disasemble the walls, and try to bring them back into plumb and square. thx GTB

Hi,
You are not going to get the walls to come back again and like you figured the shelves ahve not changed in size...
The ONLY thing that you can try to do is find something that will sit on the plasticribs and still help to support the shelves. This is not going to be an easy fix....rather then trying to screw sometning to the walls I would turn off the firdge, allow it to warm up, dry it throughly and then glue something to the sides that will help to support the shelving. I would not try to pull apart anything and screwing to the sides can be a real gamble for fear of what you may hit behind the wall.
I'm sure that you can find a good bracket of some kind with enough area to glue to the sides at a local hardware or bigbox. A bit of creativity maybe required but I'm sure that with a bit of imagination you can figure something out...!!!

If you think the problem is with the walls then you will have to get the freezer relined.
There are companies that do that. You should check your local yellow pages.

But if you think the shelves are buckled or curved and fall short of the slides then you could replace the shelves.

Have a look at this site if you have not already done so. Unfortunately I don't think the parts are available anymore.

You may have to take them out and put some weights to reverse the buckle in the shelves.

Not sure if it is any help you can refer to the user manual at this site.

Please rate the solution if you find it useful otherwise post a comment and I will try to help if I can.

    Unsure why you did not find my solution useful. It would have helped to provide a better solution if you were able to give some indication of the 2 finger rating.



    Good Luck with getting the freezer shelving fixed.

The only way seems to be to put a padding between the metallic body and the plastic lining. It could only be inline with the trays and not all along. Yes, it is a major effort. The plastic lining would have to be removed and then refitted after fixing the pads. They could be fixed with cello tape or super glue.
If you try out other alternatives like widening the lower edge of the trays enough to sit properly on the ribs then after a few months you will be in the same situation you are in today.
Or you could put a thin rod with screw on one end and to pull in the lining. But it has a drawback of making a hole i the lining (bad in the long run for the plastic) and you having to remove the lining. Then the first solution is easier and cheaper and good for the fridge in the long run.

How do I reinforce freezer shelves?


The freezer should not be totally be full otherwise the cooling system will not succeed to reach its design temperature. If the shelve is still bending, get a piece of maple about 1x2" and attach it to the shelve at each end with a piece of nylon rope.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Marvel, Model 61 RF ww-F made in 7-19-2000


Dear John,

Contact the factory directly at 800-223-3900 8:00am to 5:00 pm EST. I believe the bar pn is 42241938 (for the 2nd and third bar) and the top bar pn is 42241937. (I am going by memory so have them verify it). They also have a kit that has both side hinges and new springs for the freezer door. If you can't get through via phone contact Tim Malloy using tmalloy@northlandnka.com. He's a little overloaded but should get back to you within a day or two.

Milk lunch meats freezing


I have to assume you mean on the top shelf of a refrigerator. If so, then you need to look for the air vent(s) that are usually in the rear of frig compartment either on back wall or under the frig compartment ceiling. These vents are pouring very cold air from the freezer and the air needs to get distributed throughout the frig, however the coldness is falling on the milk or meats that are in the way (getting hit with the cold before the air is disipated within the frig).
Three options: if the air vent(s) have a movable or directional cover, then redirect the air so it blows away from the food on the shelves. If there is no movable cover, perhaps adjusting the freezer control (not the frigerator control) to the next colder freezer setting; this will reduce excess cold flow pouring into the frig. 3rd, make a shield of plastic or metal or cardboard to divert the direct cold flow of the air vent from falling on the upper shelves.

I have exactly the same problem and it is mostly because of the cheap plastic support brackets. I'd like someone to to offer a cheap way to "rig" it so it will support the weight of the shelves when full. Glad tyo know I am not the only one.

Freezer Shelves are too small for freezer and keep falling when I put food on them...


I had the same problem with the freezer sheles being too small in my GE Profile side by side. The shelves would simply collapse down with any weight on them.
After measurng the gap, I determined that the shelves were approximately 7/16" too narrow.
The fix I did was simple, effective, and very cheap.
I bought a roll of clear flexible polyethylene tubing at Lowes for about $5.The tubing is 3/8" outer diameter, 1/4" inner diameter (see picture below).
I cut pieces to fit along the side rails of the shelf, and then sliced the tube pieces down their length with a utility knife. I wrapped the pieces around the outside rails on each side of the shelf. It took a little work, but I got the tube pieces attached.
In a few spots, I did a double wrap of tubing.
The shelves fit tightly now and can hold significant weight without collapsing. Plus, they don't look too bad.
I hope GE fixes this simple problem in the future.
