Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a GE side by side mod. TP24PR that constantly has about 1/2 inch of ice on the freezer floor. My owners manual makes me think that the problem is the water filter cartridge, which has never been changed,but the manual doesn't say where it is located in my model. Any ideas?

Hello,

Your water Filter is located in the base grille of your refrigerator
These filters have a reusable knob. Hold the knob and make a 1/4 turn to the left. Pull the old filter out. Replace the knob on the new filter from PartSelect.com. Once the new filter is inserted, turn the knob a 1/4 turn to the right to lock it into place.

Take care.

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 on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Ge mod.pde18lzpbww.defrost tray ice buildup every


Remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Defrost the drain tray whr=ere the drain hole is until water will flow down it . Hot water sometimes helps . Use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow out any debris . Get a Solid ALUMINUM wire about 9 inches long (14-16 guage) and put into the hole as far as possible without using force (bend the wire if necessary) and make a hook with the other end ahich you should hook onto the defrost heater . This ALUMINUM wire will keep the drain hole cleared of ice due to the transfer of heat from the glass defrost heater . Do not make the hook too tight for fear of breaking the glass covering on the heater .

Water and ice in bottom of freezer, occasional water on floor


I believe your defrost condensate pan below the evaporator is blocked with ice and now when defrost happens the water pours over the tray and to the bottom of the freezer. You will need to defrost the ice in the collector tray and the pour a solution of hot water and clorox to make sure the water ends up in the condensate pan below your refrigerator. So unplug the refrigerator remove the panel and let me know what you find. I have some more solutions depending on what you see is happening. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ge monogram bottom freezer ice maker spills ice


It takes weeks for ice to dissipate in a freezer.
You may can adjust your cut off lights or wire cut off to cut off before it's so full.

GE Side by side runs constantly.


The timer that controls the defrost cycle/function, may have failed and there may be no defrosting occurring. If icing of the coils due to the missing defrost cycle, there may not be enugh circulation left to keep the thermostat happy.

Try defrosting it manually (I know, it's a pain - aren't we spoiled?) and see if the compressor then cycles for a few days before it starts running continuously again.

And for Dr. Fred, the above suggestion about trying manually defrosting applies to your problem too.
The exposure to overnight moisture (ice accumulation) may have interfered with the automatic cycle.

More likely, the defrost system has failed.
There are three components: Defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
The timer can be located either in the food compartment, on the rear of the unit, or behind the kickplate. The heater and bi-metal are located behind the freezer rear wall (or freezer floor, depending on design). It's easiest to unplug the fridge overnight, with the freezer door open, to melt all the ice that has developed. PRIOR to doing all this, please ensure that there IS ice forming on the wall of floor of the freezer! Let me know. I hope this helps!

Water leaking on floor from under Mod#TPH21PRS;TPH21PBS


I you dont have any water hooked up for the ice maker or for water at the door, about the only thing left is your freezer drain. Look in the back under the freeser side and look for a drain... see where it drains.. over flowing? anyway water could get out from where in drains to?
