If there is no cold at all and the fans inside and out are running then the compressor is trying to start but can't you should hear the motor try to start then a click then no sound fro the compressor for a few min. If this is so then it may be the start relay on the end of the compressor(where the wires go to the compressor)

My GE model GSH25JFTCBB side by side is not cooling in the fridge side. Freezer seems to be doing fine. What could be wrong


you could have a defrost problem,a bad damper,bad computer board.first thing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing in there?you should,if not the evap fan motor is bad,if it's blowing touch the back inside wall of the freezer to see if any frost or like snow is on it,from the bottom up in the freezer remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall with your hand,if it has frost or snow you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,sensor or board,if there isn't anything on the wall then you have a bad damper,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,then the evaporator fan in the freezer blows the cold air over into the fridge section,you have a damper in your machine that opens and closes when it's cold enough or when it needs to get colder,the door on the damper isn't opening to let the cold air in when it calls for cold air.if you can write back and let me know what you find and hopefully we can get it fixed.

The strip down the middle between the the fidge and freezer doors is getting hot. So hot that it burns when you touch it. The sides of the fridge are also getting pretty not. I have just bought the fridge...


I have exactly the same problem with my Westinghouse side by side! And it only happens when it's hot in the house. Would love to hear what's wrong. And the fridge is 5 years old. Bought new.

Had to empty fridge and freezer when we got back from vacation. unit not cool sounds like it is trying to work but not getting cool


You possibly have a compressor out. If you hear the fan motor kicking in it is more than likely the compressor. There isn't really an easy way to test a compressor to see if its gone out. You can put your hand on it to see if you feel it coming on however, check the compressor first to make sure it isn' t hot by touching it quickly with your finger. Good Luck

Refrigerator knocking noise


the motor could be on the way out. Put your hand (carefully) on the motor (back of the refridgerator), if it is too hot to touch then the motor is burning out and will need to be replaced.
