Whats could cause my refrigerator stop getting cold?


The coils are probably freezing up. If so, then u will need to remove all your items and unplug the unit for 24 hours. Find out if that is the problem so u can fix it after you dethaw for 24 hours. New models have a panel against the back of INSIDE of fridge. You do not want to remove this until most of the ice is melted as it will tear off insulation and destroy the panel. If coils are frozen its probably the evaporator fan. Next option would be control board if newer model. That's all I know from experience. Hope that helps:)

Slow water and not makeing much ice i ce isnt solid


Turn the refrigerator off and let the freezer thaw completely. You may have frozen the water supply line so water cannot get into the ice maker. Also, the coils in the back of the freezer could be frozen, so you cannot get a cold enough temperature to freeze the water. You can confirm this by removing the back panel from the freezer (inside) and looking at the coils.

FREEZER WORKING BUT FRIDGE NOT


Remove the rear panel in the freezer and see if the evaporator coils are frozen over.
If so dethaw coils with a hair dryer.
Reassemble freezer and set controls to the normal position.

Although you replaced the defrost timer if the coils were frozen over in the freezer no air can transfer to the ref. section from the freezer.

If you do not want to dethaw the coils unplug the ref. for 1-2 days and leave the doors open .The coils will dethaw by then.

GE 24 Profile refrigerator: The freezer part


my refrigerator goes into auto defrost every 60hrs for 45 minutes or till the bi metal(defrost thermostat) says it had enough....recently i had ice built up on the coil because my defrost thermostat was stuck open...


ice builds up because the moisture that comes from opening the door or food condenses on the cold coil...tempurature of the coil is below 32 degrees which will ice up the condensed moisture...

defrost is timed to remove this build up

Ge side by side not cool enough even on higher settings


I posted this on another problem, but this may help you too.
Check to see if there is frost on the back panel of the freezer.
If there is try solution below:
................................................................................................
I had a similar problem. The frost in the back is an indication that your coils are frozen. This could be from food packages falling out of the freezer drawers in the back and blocking the air circulation vents or maybe the freezer door was not closed completely and letting moist/humid air in and freezing the coils.
For me it was the first problem listed.I had to completely empty the freezer and Frig. and take the back panel off in the freezer. There you will see the coils and lots of ice!
1. Remove all items from the frig. and freezer and unplug frig.
2. Pull all the freezer drawers out.
3. On my GE side by side I took the light cover off and removed the bulb. There you will see two panel screws. Remove the screws.
4. Now pull out the mouldings on each side and you should be able to remove the panel.
5. Take a hair drier and completely defrost all the ice from the coils.
Be sure to keep plenty of towels handy for all the water mess. Remember to keep an eye on the drain tray in the back of the frig. and use a sponge to collect the water that will build up.
Hope this helps!.....

FREEZER TOO COLD FRIDG NOT BELOW 50


Check to see if there is frost on the freezer back panel if this is a side by side. Could be the air vent is blocked by a frozen pack of vegetables or something else. It could be your freezer coils are frozen if this happened and you will have to take the freezer panel off and with a hair drier defrost them completely.
Hope this helps....

The coils are frozen solid in freezer behind back wall


frozen coils not always means freon problem. low air flow across evaporator coils could cause freeze up. if door is opened and closed an abnormal amount could cause a freeze up or even something pushed up against the air intake in the refridgerator. i would thaw it out completely and restart it, theres a chance it was nothing major. good luck

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
