GE side by side gss25lsmf stopped working

Hello,

I have a side by side refrigerator that was working fine for 5 years. Today i noticed water in the freezer but there was some ice in the ice maker so i emptied the refrigerator.

I noticed that the motor was working overtime without cooling. a few hours later the motor wont even start. The lights and buttons( ice, water, door lock) on the front work just fine.

Can someone suggest troubleshooting steps?

Thank you very much in advance for your help

    Thank you very much for the answer.

    Overnight i observed that the fan was working very hard but the refrigerator was not getting cooled.

    Are there any ways i can check or replace the compressor myself?

    i am looking for professionals but just in case its a easy task.

    Ashvin

It could be a number of things but none of them can be fixed without professional help.
things it could be:

  • bad compressor
  • blockage in the freon line
  • small possibility of a freon leak

    changing the compressor is not easy. it requires a freon evacuation and recovery pumps and tanks, decent brazing skills, freon scale, access to the type of freon required (some require a license to purchase) just to get started. also it is an expensive job $300-$500+

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator . Model? But though it's about 8 to 10 years old, it wasn't used for about 4-5 years. It has been fine for the last 5 years that I have used it, it has been working fine....


Joann I would suggest you look and change your water filter. It should be located in the refrigerator side on top. Just twist it off, take it to Lows' and find a new one.

Water line keeps freezing on my GE side by side refigerator


Check to see if the water tank in the bottom of the refrigerator section is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the refrigerator section temp down.

Not getting any water out of the dispenser, but its making ice


The water dispenser on my GE profile fridge stopped working for a couple days. The refrigerator and freezer temperatures have fluctuated over the past several months causing fridge items to periodically freeze and freezer items to periodically thaw. GE tech came today identified a bad circuit board, which he replaced for a cool $300. Ouch. Fridge is only three years old. Oh yeah, the icemaker also has a broken tab which causes it to jam every couple weeks. We have GE Profile appliances throughout our kitchen and they all work great except for the fridge :-( I hope GE engineers read this post. If so, get to work! LOL

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.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..

Ice Maker No Longer Works - Water Works fine


Not sure if this will work for you - I had a similar problem with a Kenmore fridge. I removed the ice tray and found a piece of ice stuck where the ice is made and dropped into the tray. Once I clear this obstruction, the ice maker worked again. Also, check for the mechanism that indicates that the ice tray is full. This may be jammed or malfunctionin.
