Question about GE Profile Arctica Stainless Steel Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator that I purchased used last week. Developing quite a bit of frost buildup inside the upper half of the freezer. Also noticing that the flap for the ice doesn't close. Is that the problem?

Hi yes the flap will cause the frost, you need to replace the solenoid that controls that flap, if this is a side by side, the solenoid is behind the dispenser controls on the freezer door, you take off the control board, and then remove the little mount behind that it has 4 screws and you will see solenoid on right side, it needs to be replaced.

Appliance Repair Meridian - GE Profile Refrigerator not cooling


If your refrigerator is not getting cold but your freezer is freezing fine there's a good chance the evaporator is frosted up or the evaporator fan isn't working. Pull the back panel from the inside of the freezer and examine the evap coils for heavy frost buildup. If that's the case, there's a heater assembly screwed on at the bottom of the evaporator. Unscrew and ohm it out. This go bad quite regularly for me and can save you money by doing it yourself.

Push gently on the back wall of your freezer. If you hear a crunching sound resembling snow under foot or dry leaves being stepped on, you have a frost buildup. Your fan may still be working, but your entire refrigerator depends on that fan being able to draw air over those blocked and frosted up coils. The most common cause of this is a dead defrost thermostat. The second and third problems are the defrost timer or defrost heater. Spin your defrost timer (located near your Temperature control, it's in a small hole with no screw in it) till it clicks and check the freezer wall to see if the frost starts to steam and melt. If not, unplug the fridge2_bing.gif, then try disconnecting the defrost thermostat (usually clipped onto the main freezer coil at the top) and join those 2 wires together. Replug and see if the heater starts steaming. If it doesn't it is most likely the timer. The heater is usually the last thing to die, unless your heaters2_bing.gif are encased in glass. In which case a quick visual inspection for decay and separation will pinpoint the problem.

It will be worth the repairs that come up. Don't replace board till it quits and you will know when it does. The new upgraded boards are much better now with extra protection for the relays.

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.
