Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a GE DSS25KSRD side-by-side refrigerator, and it's only 2-3 years old. Recently, from time to time (not always), the upper part of the freezer is not cold enough, and the bottom part of the fridge is freezing. Suspecting the fan is malfunctioning as the problem happened when the fan is not spinning.

Hows the temp in the fridge side? this could be just going through the auto defrost cycle. It will get warm to melt off the ice on the evaporator coils. Heat rises so it will get warmer at the top. After the defrost cycle, all should return to normal. Make sure the fan runs too. I suspect this is normal... unless your food is thawing out.

SOURCE: freezer and fridge not real cold no ice

Inside the fresh food compartment there is a defrost timer behind the control panel. There will be a small hole that you can place a screwdriver through and turn clockwise s;lowly until you hear the refrigerator stop. It should remain stopped for about 30 minutes. If not you will need to again turn it again slowly until it starts. If this happen the timer will need replaced. The part number for the timer is WRX9X489 This is correct providing the model you have is the model listed above your post.
Go to the link below and enter your model number in search feature. this takes you to many just like yours, they are same just little differences. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a GE Profile Side by Side TPX21PR/Tpx21BR. The freezer is not freezing ice cream or even bread, but the meat seems fine. There has been a loud noise emanating from the unit for over a year.


Hi,

Kindly provide few more details so that i could provide more appropriate solution to your problem :-

1. How old is the unit?
2. Kindly hear the noise - Is it from the freezer section or upper back or lower back of the refrigerator?
3. Do you hear the compressor running?
4. Any problem with temperature in lower section or is it limited to freezer section?

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

We have a GE , DSS25KSRD, Serial # LH435862,. about 6 years old. The problem is the refrigerator side does not stay cool enough and we have to keep setting it at a higher number (7 or 8 ). We have had it...


if the technician went probably the blower is working, but what also happens is that the thermostat defrost doesn't tell the heating element to defrost the ice in the freezer so it build ice in the freezer and doesn't let the air flow to the refrigerator, so what you got to do is let the refrigerator to defrost completely after that you have to locate the thermostat defrost and replace it!
Good Luck!

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control board.

Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.

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..
