GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Not cooling enough on frigerator side but it still works on freezer side.


Hello Mjorgy,

I understand that you are having a problem with you refrigerator. The freezer is cooling fine, however the fridge side is not cooling enough. This is a common problem with the evaporator coil stops working. When you open the fridge or freezer you should hear a fan running or fell are coming out of the vents to the fridge.

I would love to help you further if you can please post a model number for the unit I will look up where the fan is located and let you know how to get to it in step by step instructions. You should be able to locate the model number in side the compartments on the wall close to the front. It is also located on the rear of the unit. Please post back to this thread so that I may assist you further.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

your ptc overload relay on the compressor is bad,unplug it off the compressor and get a replacement at an appliance parts store,plug in the replacement and this will solve your problem

The refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold but I can hear the motor running.


Hello there:
If the compressor is running and you can hear it than you are going to have the refrigerant recharged in the unit.
If you continue to run the unit without refrigerant you will end up with the compressor quitting and this you do not want ok?
I hope this has been very helpful for you ok?
best regards michael

GE Monogram side by side not cooling


I had the same problem. GE Man said that since the unit had been allowed to warm so much, we needed to empty it, unplug it, and totally leave it alone for 24 hours for any excess water to drain out. Then, we needed to plug it in and let it run with NO ITEMS INSIDE AND NO OPENING OF THE DOORS AT ALL for 48 hours. After that, we started using it again and it was Perfect!! I thought it was a lost cause, so this worked and didn't cost me a dime!!

GE Freezer Not Freezing


I am not an expert, but if the defrost heater is not working, then maybe when it was unpluged the coils didn't completly unthaw. If not, the freezer still will not cool properly.

GE model GTST2BPLWW


they all have fans the freezer does all the cooling for the whole unit there is nothing in the bottom unit that cools the freezer fan blowes air from the freezer down to the bottom and draws air to the top if you dont hear the freezer fan running and there would be no doubt in your mind if it was then pull the fan cover and see why and let my know hold my rating till we are done please
