Question about GE GSH25JSTSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Clicking sound fridge freezer not running

I read the information on the clicking through the other posts and thought they were helpful, but I need more information, please. I have a GE model #GSH25JSRFSS.

There is a clicking on the mother board--does that mean the mother board is completely bad or do I need to replace a part? Also where would I buy a new mother board?

I also looked at the control panel on top of the freezer under the door hinge. One part is plugged in, but the other part has nothing to plug into. What is that good for?

Thank you,
Alex

Hi alexaz97,
First off the wire under the hinge is only for trouble shooting and should be fine. The control clicking on the other hand is usually a bad sign. The relays on the board should not click on and off, I have seen this about 10 times this month at my appliance store. The board will need to be replaced. If you would like I can send you a control board. I have pleanty in stock and ready to ship. The control is $124.99. Shipping is included. You can contact me here or at my appliance store.

Fridge Won't Cool


First off that "condenser fan motor" needs to be replaced. It is not running near the speed it needs to. (I replace those all the time on the job) Here is the replacement to order.Also, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the main control board is sticking in defrost and you will need to replace the main control board on the unit. GE has an updated control board that address's this problem along with some other issues the original control board had.Here is the updated board to order.
All the parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.



Keep me posted!

Fridge question


Sounds like you mad have a bad relay or overload on the compressor. I would also check your condenser fan motor to make sure its running and blowing air on the compressor to cool it. If its not running the compressor may be overheating and shutting off on its overload. If the condenser fan motor is running I would assume that you would need a new relay and overload it will come in a kit. Usually it will make a clicking sound when the compressor is TRYING to start and then shuts off on its overload if the start components are bad.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Temperature Display, Clicking Intermittent, Lost all Cooling


unplug the fridge and turn it around so you can see the compressor, does it have a capacitor located on the compressor (a round cylinder with wires comming out of it going to the compressor) it sounds like that could be your problem. They are pretty easy to change just a couple of wiers, just take note of where they go when you take it out. Make sure its unplugged from the wall before you do anything!

Trio 596.76502500 Mystery Noise


Does the noise only occur when the compressor is running ? My unit has this problem, similar symptoms to your unit, they stop when the freezer door is opened, etc., Several service calls have not completely eliminated it - yet ! The problem seems to be that the compressor coils are too close to each other and rattle. Adjusting them helps for a awhile.

Kitchen Aid Fridge problem


ok first the freezer does all the cooling for the whole unit and in order for it to cool properly the freezer needs to be a certain temp it should be around -10 -6 if its not reaching that temp it will still freeze and apper to be working right also check to hear if the freezer fan is running as it pulls air from the fridge and cools it then blowes it back look in the freezer on the back wall toward the bottom see if frost is building also in the refridgerator section on the left hand side of the cabnit is a return vent make sure its not blocked and see what the thermostat in the freezer is and let me know we need to know things like this to help narrow the promblems and people dont reply to the questions so we cant answer appliance repair is a skill

Fridge keeps ticking when not running???


Kevin, I'm going to give you a few scenerios to check out. The evaporator fan, inside the freezer will sometimes come in contact with ice and make this noise. Check your condensor fan, in back and make sure that is not hitting the shroud. If the overload on the compressor is tripping it will make a clicking sound, but it would be about every 4 to 5 minutes. If the unit goes into defrost, the evaportor coils tend to make a clicking sound. If you can be more specific as to where the noise is coming from, we might be able to help you better...Catriver...post back.
