Go to nearest supply house or a good hardware store buy a themometer in the domestic ref, temp range. then compare it to read out.question is you house at 77 degrees. no way will domestic side have such an instant change in reading, the walls of the ref keep a long time fix on temp change.trust the themometer.

What can I try next to prevent my food from freezing?


The damper door may be broken. I had this problem in the past and the fresh food was too cold. I replaced the damper assembly and all was fixed.

My refregirator temperature sometimes warms up 10 to 15 degrees higher when i open its doors to load it up with items and takes a long time to cool back down.


If your reading the display temp , your reading what the thermistors are telling the control board . NOT the actual temp inside . After closing the door , from the food that was already cold in the fridge , the coldness will keep the inside temp , the same temp as when you opened the door . The thermistors themselves will detect the warmness and send it to the board . A good way to try to put this acrsoo , is to put a thermometer between , say , 2 packages of salads . Wait a little while and open the door . Watch the display temp , then read the thermometer between the packages . The thermometer will stay the same , due to the coldness of the packages not changing . When you put food in the ref , the surrounding food will give off some of the coldness to the freshly installed food , thereby makeing it cold faster . After a while , this coldness will return to the thermistors and the display will start to drop in temp . Hard for me to put into words , except for , the temp reading will actaully be the same as the actual temp display , only when you FIRST open the door .

Coils keep freezing up its 4 years old


Iced-over evaporator coils, accompanied by a non-chilled fresh food compartment, happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me, the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side. That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.

Since the compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wall of the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week). Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longer move any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food side got warmer as well.

The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall between compartments which opens when the fresh food side needs cooling. If no air is moving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartment climb.

I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side and solved the problem for a while.

I bough a pair of thermometers at a kitchen store and put one in the freezer compartment and one in the fresh food compartment so that I could occasionally check to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running (ie, was it really necessary to be trying to cool either compartment, or were they already cold enough).

About six months later I had the coil icing problem again. This time the fresh food side seemed cool enough (according to the thermometer as well as the fact that the flapper door would close, indicating that the computer knew to not try to additionally cool the fresh food side).

The thermometer indicated that the temp in the freezer compartment was cold enough, but the system computer continued to run the compressor. So I replaced both temp sensors in the freezer compartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)

If you are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them all under the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".

Use a website like www.partselect.com to look up a parts diagram for your fridge and see if you can order just the temp sensors. Other websites (www.repairclinic.com and www.appliancepartsworldwide.com) may also be helpful. I have no affiliation with any of the sites I just mentioned - I'm just posting them as resources.

We have a ge side by side and the refrigerator is freesing stuff. the model number is GSS25X SNA BS


Is it all areas of the fresh food side that are freezing your items, or is it the drawer area?

There is a direct connection (on my GE side-by-side, at least) between the freezer compartment and the drawers in the fresh food compartment. The size of the connection is controlled with a wheel or a slider. This could contribute to freezing in that area of the fresh food compartment.

Otherwise, it could be the temp sensor(s) in the fresh food compartment. If the computer thinks the temp is too high in the fresh food compartment, it will continue to cool.

It could be a problem with the motorized door that connects the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment, located at the top of the dividing wall between the compartment. That door should close when the temp in the fresh food compartment is cold enough. If that door mechanism has failed, is disconnected, or otherwise blocked in the open position, cold air from the freezer compartment will continue to circulate into the fresh food compartment.

The fridge and freezer stopped cooling. we defrosted it. There was frost in the freezer. Before that the ice on the door had stopped and now it works too.

I just has the motherboard replace last week and now the Refrigerator side stop working and I have Ice on the back wall of the frezzer . Frezzer is still working well. gss22wgmd


You don't say why the mother board was replaced. Make sure the board was the correct one, part number WR55X10656 for your GSS22WGMD and that all plugs are firmly and correctly attached to it. If yes, then check the defrost heater (located behind the back wall inside the freezer, near the bottom) to see if it is burnt out. (If you disconnect the wires from each end of it and test, finding no continuity, it is bad) It is a part number WR51X10101 for your model, and is a fairly common failure point. While you have that apart, manually defrost the coils with a hair dryer. (the manual defrosting alone will get your refrig working for at least a week, allowing you time to get any needed parts.) If left alone without defrosting, your freezer section will not be working well soon either.

Refig set at 34 degrees and it might be about 45 degres inside what could be the problem


How about the freezer? Is it cold (about 0 degrees Farenheit). If so, there's probably ice build-up blocking air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. Even though modern refrigerators are 'frost free,' they're really not. Over a period of time, frost can build up in areas where air flow is restricted (like the door that controls air flow between the freezer and fresh food compartment). Take everything out of the refrigerator and freezer and allow both to defrost completely. To avoid an odor problem, clean out any food residue that may have been masked when it was frozen. Be sure to LEAVE THE DOORS OPEN while you're cleaning and until you're ready to turn the unit back on and put your food back in. Hope this helps.

Lg frig side is warm but freezer side is good


You are setting your fresh foods side to 34 but the display will go back to showing the actual temp. It is still set at 34. The refrig should be able to reach the 34 setting, so although 40 is an OK temp for a refrig, it is not what you set it to and you are definitely having a problem with the unit. Instead of starting to go through a long list of checks, I would advise you to call for warranty service, as the unit is only 3 months old.
Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score. Thanks.

Kemore brand - freezer works fine, refrigerator not cold,


The fresh food side is cooled by the freezer side through a duct between the two. It will have a small door that opens or closes depending on how cool you want the fresh food side. The door opens more as you adjust the temp for the fresh food side colder. If the duct is blocked in any way, then it would be like setting the temp setting for the fresh food side warmer and warmer. The freezer would be cold and the fresh food side would be warm. Set the temp to midway. Check for any obstructions to this duct. The evaporator fan is what moves the air to the fresh food side.. If the evaporator fan is not working, this could vary well is the problem. You may have to check the evaporator coil to see if it is frosted up enough to restrict air flow over the evaporator and to the fresh food side. If this helps you find your problem, please rate me. If there is anything else I can help you with, please ask. I am here to help you.
