Question about GE GSS25JFPCC / GSS25JFPWW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Amana BH2055W I cleaned the elements at the bottom of our BH2055W on Saturday, 6 June, with a vacuum and some wire to reach some clumps of dust that were otherwise inaccessible. Everything continued to work fine for a little less than a day -- a 1 1/2 litre bottle I'd put in the freezer was solid the following (Sunday) morning. Later in the day, though, we noticed dripping from the freezer door, and then discovered that the ice in the ice trays was partially melted. Clearly something had happened between the dust removal and the dripping. I checked the Fixya website and noticed another report on this model that suggested air flow as a possible problem, so I checked the elements again and found more dust in the farthest reaches from the access at the foot of the fridge. So I removed this. With the control set to about 5, I left some ice trays in the freezer overnight, but they are still liquid and the air from the cooling vent at the back seems much too warm. The fan in the bottom corner (left hand, facing the front) is certainly working, but I'm not sure about the compressor. So far as I'm aware none of the tools I used to remove dust would have been liable to puncture the element tubes, so I'm reasonably confident that the sealed system is intact. I suspected that the fridge itself was warming up when I put the ice cube trays in the freezer last night, and this seems to be confirmed this morning. From reading other accounts of similar problems the compressor relay may be at fault -- is there any simple way of checking this? And if this is not to blame, where do I look next, and what would be the appropriate sequence? Thanks.

    OK, I've removed the relay and the overload from the condenser, but can't see anything wrong with them -- turns out they just pull off pins on the condenser. A repairman has proposed that the condenser is kaput and needs to be replaced. Any comments, suggestions -- e.g. to verify this? Cheers.

    I'm still waiting for advice on how to proceed -- no suggestions received as yet. My primary suspicion falls on the compressor relay since when plugged in clicking occurs in the area where the relay should be located, but nothing that would coordinate with compressor activity. This raises another problem, though -- how can I be sure the piece attached to the side of the compressor is the relay? It seems very small compared to others (e.g. magnetic with a copper coil). I'm trying to figure out how to remove it from the compressor to have a closer look. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, first check your compressor current ( you can check current draws by using clamp ampere). Compare the reading with your owner manual. If they are quite lot difference : your compressor is dead or relay is not work or your cable is loosen due to your previous activity.

You say clean outside coils and fan motor coils. Where are they?

The "outside" coils that you are looking for on a refrigerator will be found either on the back, or in the case of your Amana, on the bottom - behind the toe space bezel. There are no coils on the back of the fridge.

The coils are usually thin, black grates that contain the refrigerant. Be careful not to damage them when cleaning. Open the freezer door (yours is a bottom freezer type) and simply grasp at the top of the bezel an gently pull away from the frame.

Use a narrow crevice vacuum tool attachment to pull the dust and debris from the coils. Use a flashlight to see beyond the very front. You may also wish to unplug the fridge so that you do not damage the fan if it is struck by the tool while running. You should vac the coils annually or more frequently if the fridge is in a dusty area - or there is a lot of pet hair collecting on the coils. Some fridges also have the fan hidden behind a removable panel on the at the bottom of the back side of the fridge. If cleaning fan blades - you must unplug the fridge before attempting. Vacuum any dirt and dust on visible coils seen near the fan.

Good luck!

The bottom freezer on my Maytag BR22 is not

Look at the inside back wall of the freezer, If you see that it is built up with frost. You have a defrost problem. If not, check the coils under the bottom, make sure they are clean and not covered with dust. If so clean with vacuum and long brush. If they are clean, check the fan that blows on the compressor. Make sure it's running. If not you have a bad fan. Last be sure the fan inside the fridge is running.

Getting to heating element/thermal fuse for amana model LED 20AW

I just replaced mine by taking the bottom off, but in hindsight I think I should have been able to do it by just removing the lower front panel. With long arms, you should be able to reach back and loosen the two bolts holding it in place. Good luck!

I couldn't wait for a rely on my posted question on March 6,2009. I was able to ask around to figure out how to clean this up. This Amana washer model has an agitator that is just clipped on. I just got my fingers underneath the agitator and pulled it off. After getting the agitator off, I was able to clean all of the old built up detergent and fabric softner with some old fashion scrubbing. Then I used some CLR to get what ever I missed. I pushed the agitator back until it clicked back into place and ran one washing cylce to clean things up.....Works great....No more old clumpy stuff showing up in the wash....

Clump of ice in bucket

That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Blows dust and dirt out of brush area

Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.
