If the compressor is running but the fridge isnt cooling, you may have damaged one of the coils so try checking the coils... hope that helps....

    Besides fuses,there are relays that activate this compresorm most of them located under the hood, however, most of the compresors have a pressure control switch, if you have a small loss of refrigerant, eventually it is going to loose pressure and your compressor will not start to prevent compressor damage. Evacuate the system and refill with the correct amont of refrigerant.

    If it is a frost free refrigerator it will not come on if the defrost timer is in the defrost position.

  • Priya darshan Jun 21, 2008

    Do you hear any click noise?

  • Priya darshan Jun 21, 2008

    Your refrigerator is warming up and you hear a humming sound, and maybe
    even a CLICK, coming from the compressor in back. First check the compressor start relay. If that checks good, then you’re probably looking at a bad compressor.After you’ve confirmed that the compressor is bad, you’re faced with a
    choice: replace the compressor or buy a new refrigerator. If you think you can replace the compressor yourself, then this article will help you with that.

    Goodluck..

AFTER POWER OUTAGE MY GE DEEP FREEZER WONT COME ON


Hi

First check there is power to the unit and the trips and fuses are all OK

If so then unplug the unit for around 24 hours, then switch on and listen, you should hear the compressor start up ( a low buzzing sound), however if then you hear a click and it goes quiet the compressor is probably faulty. This happens often after a power outage which can produce a voltage surge.

Lights are on,but freezer and refrigerator controls are not, is there a reset, lost power for about two hours yesterday


the motherboard located behind a cover panel in the upper left hand corner of the unit is defective,it powers all aspects of the unit and is very sensitive to power surges,outages,blackouts,spikes,etc,you will need to replace it as there is no repairable parts to it,G.E, part # (WR55X10942) just unplug the unit,remove the cover,remove all harnesses to the board and replace(CAUTION) be sure to check both condensor and evaporator fan motors before replacing this board,because if one of these fan motors is bad,the new board will be destroyed immediately!!!

I have a GE refiregetor that has stopped cooling. I opened the back and made sure everything is clean and there are nothing is frozen.


Just check your relay and the wiring connections!

Please see that your plug point gets power supply and earthling is done properly!

turn the thermostat knob to two or three setting in case it is in Zero and your unit should run.

Still it does not start your compressor might have grounded and need replacement.

I purchased a used GE Profile side by side refridgerator; it was used for model homes... Well I got it home and the lights are on but it doesnt seem to be working??? The buttons seem to be non...


if the unit was working before......unplug the unit, place it where it will be used, let it stand with no power for 24 hours.......then plug the unit in and check its operation after 24 hours....I know, sounds nuts, but this has saved many from buying a new unit......not all refrigerators like to be moved.

Power is on but nothing is working, not cold ,no water, no ice


Sounds like the unit needs a reset of sorts, Get your food into another refrigerator or ice chests and unplug the unit. let it stand open for several hours (just in case the vents are iced) and then plug it back in.

GE side by side refrigerator has stopped working...


sound to me that the unit may be stuck in defrost. look for the time clock and or if it is a newer unit check your condenser coil it may be dirty. the unit may also have a leak on the refrigeration side of it.
