Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My Ge Profile refrigerator (PSH23SGPABS) leaks water from the bottom of the refrigerator when the water dispenser is depressed. Also, the express thaw light in the fridge side stays on but I don't hear the motor running and the temp in the fridge and freezer fluctuates up and down even thought I have set each at a specific temp.

SOURCE: not cold

If the compressor seems to be cycling as normal, either the system needs recharged or the temperature controller has failed. If the compressor is running at all, it is probably OK.

Diagnosing it remotely is only guess-work, I recommend (if in the US) that you check with the local BBB for a trustworthy service company to assess your unit.

If a recharge is needed, this is not a DIY job since it requires opening a sealed system and soldering it shut after the coolant is at the proper pressure.
Replacing the temp controller might be possible but better done by a pro since the location of the sensor tip may not be easy to find.

Another (albeit less likely) is the failure of the defrost timer which could keep the heater on while trying to cool.
The timer is often located behind the lower trim grill and should be a small box with connections.
Some have a slotted shaft protruding from the case that can be turned with a common screwdriver.
Checking the switch contacts inside can be done by waiting until you hear the compressor running and then slowly turning the shaft until the compressor shuts off again; this would represent the defrost cycle.
If you advance the shaft another 1/4 turn and leave it there, after the compressor stabilizes again, it should turn on.
Mark the position of the timer shaft and then recheck a couple of hours later.
If its shaft has turned, the timer is probably OK.
They typically have either a 24 or 48 hours cycle so the shaft movement isn't easy to detect over a few minutes time.

Good luck-

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water

you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

GE Profile TPX24...water leaking from under freezer side...water dispenser works fine, but ice maker not working properly. What could be the problem...and how do I fix it?! Thanks

i had the same issue twice. 2 suggestions 1) Remove the front grill at the bottom and you will see a plastic water line. Inspect it to see if it is leaking. Turn on the water dispenser when you are looking at the line. 2) pull out the refrigerator and remove the lower panel. Follow the plastic water lines to a solenoid valve and inspect the lines when you activate the water dispenser. water may leak from where the lines go into the solenoid value. if may be a simple fix like cutting the ends off the lines and reinserting into the solenoid valve.
