The thermostat works fine for heat, but as soon as I switch it to cool, the air conditioning will kick is but the inside thermostat will not change, causing the air conditioner to run continuously


If the temperature doesn't drop when the air conditioning is running for some time (two hours), the air conditioner is not working. The problem is not in the thermostat.

AC unit goes on and off every 3 minutes


It should not be doing that. The thermostat is pre-programed for only 4 cooling cycles per hour. You can change the program by :
�� To access the configuration menu, press both up/down buttons
simultaneously for 3 seconds.
�� To go to the next parameter (menu item), briefly press both
buttons simultaneously.
�� To modify a parameter, press one of the buttons.
�� Repeat steps 2 and 3 if necessary.
�� Press both buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds to exit
the configuration menu.

You are looking fpr parameter CPH this number tells the unit how many time per hour to come on lower it to leghten the time betwen cycles.

Moved our GE monogram to new house; was laid on side; now plugged in the motor does not kick on...all lights come on; worked fine before


Oooh -Refrigerators do NOT like laying down.
If you have done this - leave upright - unplugged for at least 4 hours before restarting.

If it has had this - it is possible the compressor may be offcentre inside it's black casing.
Try knocking it fairly hard once or twice, then plugging in again.
If this does not cause life to return, then it needs a serious look at to determine if it is getting power to it, if the control board is doing the right thing, and if the thermostats are set right.

Try resetting the thermostats really low to start with - and see if it wants to try cooling.

Hi, I have a GE refrigeretor model #ge pds22mbsww the freezer works perfect but the refrigeretor stop working for a day and start to work for about 10-14 hours and then stop agin what to do.


Sounds like a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary ..defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. The defrost systems is:
HEATER-DEFROST
THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
( in the GE refrigerator the heater anf the thermostat are sold together)

TIMER-DEFROST
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

Waiting for activation


Push Menu + L at the same time. It may take more then once. This speeds up the activation.
