Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE SideBySide Ref GSS25VGMD WW

The Ref door is too easlly opened. It stays shut, but without the 'suction' feel it had a couple of days ago. (The freezer door is tightly shut, like the Ref door was and should be.) There is nothing in the way, it is clean and in like new condition, not warped, etc. The Ref seems to hold the temp OK, as it continues to stay around 32-38. I do not notice any frosting up or other problem. I do note that the warm air coming from the floor area is not as warm as it was earlier -- it is still warm, but not as warm. I did note the fan for the Freezer running yesterday, but haven't specifically noted it today for either the Ref or Freezer.
I have had a house full of company the past few days and the door has been opened more often and more ice used (normally it is only myself here) -- would that have any effect?
Do you have any idea as to what the problem might be?
Thank you so much -- Linda Gayle

I would check the door switches for a faulty switch. If it were condensation on the control panel. I would think it would have dried out by now unless it has damaged the control board.

I have a GE Refrigerator GSS22JFMD WW with a ice

The water supply in the recessed part of your door is frozen. very common with this model. You will need to turn unit off and with freezer door open use hairdryer on the area where water dispenses and on the recessed area as well. This is time consuming but only other remedy is to leave off and door open for 24 hours. hope this helps.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does

these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

First this refrigerator has very low consumer rating. They are plagued with problems with very poor company backing. But without be able to diagnosis the problem in person I would say it's the mother board. And you may find that GE has a new updated board for your appliance. I would go to and search for your motherboard for your refrigerator and read the reviews. Some people leave some great idea. Plus it you bought this refrigerator brand new you can fight with GE to send you a new board.

GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!

Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

Fridge isn't cold


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

GSS25VGMD refrigerator not cooling evenly

i would observe the back wall for frost or ice accumulation if there is i would check the defrost circuit. the heater would be first, if it is good check the sensor is more than suspect. the defrost sensor is the one on top of the evaporator. If no ice is present open the door and feel the cabinet where the gasket touches on the frame. if it is extremly warm that would indicate that your condenser fan on the bottom at the back of the unit is out, this would also cause the symtoms you are having
