Question about GE Refrigerators

Doesn't cool fresh food

The regrig is a side by side model GE. The freezer section works perfectly but the fresh food section does not cool. The frig is 10 years old and seems to be working fine except it isn't cooling the fresh food. Recently we loaded up the fresh food section after a party and it was so full that the door didn't close properly. This began the warming problem and it seems to have gotten worse. I checked the coils under the frig and they were dirty so I cleaned them. What else could be the problem.

I have a sub zero that keeps growing bits of mold around the working parts of the fridge. Is this normal?

It´s probably overloaded. Any refrigerator has a specific cooling capacity eg x Kg/24hours. you must check that capacity and charge acording to that.

Frig side by side model glrs267zcq1 freezer cool but not frozen no ice


Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I see your Frigidaire refrigerator is not freezing in the freezer section but keeping your fresh food side cool. Some possibilities could be your refrigerator stuck in defrost mode, the control panel, or sealed system. I would recommend performing a reset on your appliance which would be flipping your household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not resolve your issue I would seek assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. -Matt

Will freezer side work if frig side is out


The freezer will appear to still work for awhile after the fresh food side fail to maintain a cool temp, you will need to remove the back in the freezer section and see if the fan motor is turning, if the fan motor is not turning you willl need to replace the fan motor and this will correct the problem and allow cool air to circulate to the fresh food section and cool the fresh food side of the refrigerator

The coils on my ge gss22wgpd bb side by side keep freezing up . IU can defrost them manually and the freezer and fridge work fine again.


This has 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 continued to climb. (The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall, so 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. About six months later I had the same problem again, 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".

This site has schematics of various appliances, including the model number you provided...
http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=GSS22WGPDBB&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=2

Your model appears very similar to mine - in the "Fresh Food Shelves" section of the above site, the sensor is diagram number 242. In the "Freezer Section", the sensors are diagram number 241 and 243.

Refrigerator does not get cold - GE side by side


In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.

It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.

Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.

The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

Freezer not working but frig is fine


If the freezer is not cooling then soon your refrigerator will show signs of not cooling. I will help you if you like. The temperature in the freezer is what and what in the fresh food section? Are both fans working strong? Sea Breeze

Ge refrigerator model TFH22JW problem


You most likely have an automatic defrost problem. When one of more of the defrost components fails, frost accumulates behind the freezer wall and restricts airflow to the fresh food side. You will still generate cold into the freezer section but will have virtually no cold to fresh food side. If it is a few years old it is most likely the defrost heater which is defective. Replace the defrost thermostat (bi-metal) as well.
