Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

We bought a GE Freezer last week and had it installed 7/8/08. Today (7/09/08) the sides and top are extremely hot. Is this because its a brand new freezer? It's located in our garage.

Talked to the seller at Home Depot who said to wait 48 hrs. Problem should be solved. Also in the handbook furnished by GE they mentioned the reason. Problem solved. Thanks anyway. George

Recently got 2nd hand Amana side by side model XRSS687BB. Compressor stops when closing fridge door. Freezer working as long as fridge door remains open. Fridge damper closed and won't open though it


I have went through something like this before, the serviceman told me it was in fact a compressor issue. Do you hear some kind of buzzing noise? Is it extremely hot? Then it's a compressor issue. They are pretty expensive to have replaced, would recommend to purchase a different brand. I had the same problems as Frigidaire. I had the compressor replaced twice during a time period of 2 years. It went out a third time and it was out of warranty and they told me that the compressor didn't receive any kind of warranty gain for itself and the company shortened the warranty of the compressor because of the issues they had with them. Since they were aftermarket ones, didn't apply to the original warranty. If you continue to have issues with this brand, please research the brand integrity online before you make another bad investment. I paid more for the new brand but it lasted longer than 9 months. The next fridge that I bought was older and used but lasted 5 years, so I stuck to that brand and it paid dividends stop far.

The hot temperature that occurs in the fridge body is normal and you have nothing to worry. It is the result of the heat pumps during a normal operation. Once the fridges reaches the normal temperature it will automatically shuts off and the hotness of the body will disappear.

Freezer not cold


Check Compressor. If its too hot to hold your hand on it then
you may need a new compressor. Check condensor fan, and check
evaporator fan

I have a GE TBX25PAXCRWW top mount freezer model. It is leaking water from the light switch. I would assume it is a blocked evap line. Do I access it from the insde of the freezer or outside.


Your problem is a clogged defrost drain . This is accessed from inside the freezer section and by removeing the rear freezer panel . Use a hairdryer to defrost the pan , under the coils . Also , the drain line for your model , is located behind the refrig . So , you only have a short area between the drain hole and drain line , to clear . I would suggest blowing thru the drain hose behind the refrig also , to make sure it is clear .

Our GE Profile Model PS123NG/PS123NS came brand


probably a loose thermister. The thermister being not attached to the evap coils tight might not be relaying back the proper resistances info for the control board to make a propper defrost determination.

Brand new GE wont get cold


Sounds like the installers had to remove the doors when the unit was delivered. If they did they might not of hooked the wire harness up at the top of the door hinge or damaged the room thermisters at the top of the door hinge system. Also there is 2 magnetic switches under the top of the doors, you might check the wires on them as well.

Cooling problem with a ge top freezer refrigerator


I have one that did the same. The coil in the back of the freezer was frosting up because it wasn't defrosting like it was supposed to. I noticed that the thermostat looked damaged so I ordered a new one from sears parts direct which by the way will show a diagram of the model you have. I just installed it last night so I will post how it comes out. This morning the freezer has a burnt smell but I am hoping its from the defrost not working for a while!

I had the same problem and when we looked at the back the fan was running very slowly. We replaced the fan and that wasn't it. Then we replaced the board, bought it online for 80 bucks and sure enough that was it. Whirlpool was willing to pay for half of the part if I had once of there technicians come out. I think they know the boards are going on these. Mine is a year and half old. I have read several other sites with people having problems with the board. If the side is very hot, like ours was than this may be it. We just ran a portable fan to the condenser until we got the board in..hope this helps
