Question about Refrigerators

GE Refrigerator Freezer warm

Hello,
I noticed water on the bottom of the refrigerator last week and also noticed that the freezer though cold is not freezing food like ice creams etc.
I used baking soda and warm water through the outlet and that seems to have solved the leaking issue. There is now very little frost along the back wall. However, the freezer still is warm. Moving the setting to 8 or 9 does not help. The ice maker works fine though.
Any suggestions to look for would be great.
TIA.

The frost on the back wall of the freezer is the clue to the problem. it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Water leaking into bottom of refrigerator section


Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.

GE fridge is warm and broken; the freezer is cold though.


Air circulation problem. Evaporator fan in freezer moves some air to refrig. Either fan is not working or air passages are blocked with ice. If ice found, then a defrost component failure has occurred. Fix what you find.

GE bottem freeze- not cooling


It is not so much the freezer motor icing up but the drain trough that takes the water from defrost down to the pan.Possibly your drain trough is clogged and needs dethawing and cleaning.
