Question about GE Â 17.9 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator

Freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough

Normally fridge runs a little cold in the back. Freezer is fine. The power went out twice over the last couple days, now the fridge is not cold enough.  There is no buildup of ice and I think the fans are working. I have no manual (apartment dweller) I don't know where the compressor or basic parts are. Record heat forecast today!

    I'm having the same kind of problem where I also had a power outage and the my refrigerator stopped getting cold. Only deference is mine is a GE sxs, model gss25gp

    The condenser fan and evaporator fan are working. My compressor stays cool to the touch. When I set the cold settings for freezer/frig to zero and zero I can hear the fans go off. When I turn the settings back to cold the fans turn on.

    I removed the back panel of the freezer and found no kind of frost on the coils. When I touch the coils, they are not cold, they feel room temperature.

    I read other posts and people say to check the defrost timer, saying it might be stuck on a defrost cycle. To test it take a screw driver and turn until you hear click. If this then replace such and such. Problem is I cannot find this anywhere on my refrigerator.

    Frequent clicking = relay problem, but I hear no click even when I unplug the ref and plug it back in.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

LG Refrigerator has no cold air for fridge but freezer works fine


Sounds like the freezer fan(FF)is wearing out, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. This repair costs parts and labor around $300.00

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.

All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.

Fridge doesn't get cold enough


 If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.

If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
