SOURCE: I have a GE Adora

From your description we understand that the problem with your refrigerator is during the defrost. The defrosting is control from a defrost thermostat that does not leave the temperature during defrost not to go very high like in your case. So in your case this thermostat is bad and during the defrost the temperature go higher than 10 as you describe.

In this case you need to replace the Defrost thermostat that is located on the evaporator in Freezer department.

However the defrost time period is control by a so called defrost timer and this should control the period of defrost that should be about 30 to 60 minutes according to the amount of ice on evaporator and is in conjunction with the above mention defrost thermostat. However if this timer is malefaction and leave the period of defrost more that 60 minutes then you have the same results the temperatures will rise more than 10 degrees. So you can fist identify the time period of the defrost in order to identify the part which is malefaction.

Sometimes both of the above parts are becoming bad and we have a very tricky situation and many engineers in order to combine the visit they replace both Defrost thermostat and defrost timer so they are in the safe side and avoiding the possibility of another vast.

You can let us have your model and brand so we can give you some more information of the parts you might need.

I have a GE Adora M# DSF25KGTABG. Set temps on the freezer door to 0 and 37. runs great for a few days then drops down to -9. I have replaced all thermistors and the mother board. What would be the next...


I have the GE Adora DSS25KSTB ss and the temps will not hold to cool temp.
We set it at 0-25 and the refg to 35 and sometimes it will cool to that temp and then sometimes it is a lot warmer.

GE side by side ADORA, refer and freezer or not cold, cleaned and unplugged to maybe reset. Unit is 4 years old.


return air ducts from the freezer may be iced up, unplug unit and use a hair dryer to defrost. The ducts will be behind the rear panel, but just let the hot air circulate for a couple of hours to really defrost it
good luck

Ge adora top half not cold on both sides


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.
