Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our GE refrigerator is not cooling on the refrigerator side. The freezer is ice cold, the fan is running and I have disasembled the ice maker and put it back on to make sure there was no blockage. I also removed the cover inside of the refrigerator and the small opening between the freezer and the refrigerator is open but no airflow to speak about. I have tried unplugging and reseting the digital thermostat but again it is an airflow issue into the refrig. I have also cleaned out the bottom and the back panel of all dust and debris.

Refrigerator and freezer are both cool, not cold.


Pull refrigerator away from wall unplug remove lower cover and feel top of compressor. If too hot to keep hand there leave unplugged until start components, compresser windings and condenser fan can be checked. Let me know what you find and I can assist you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge not getting cold, ice maker not making ice


It sounds like it is doing some cooling. Check to see if your evaporator fan is running and there is not ice buildup on your evaporator (indicating a defrost issue, common on ge refrigerators, usually heater goes bad), you would either see ice on the back wall of freezer or if you take off the back wall you will see lots of frost. Also check if your condensor fan is running and clean the condensor. The compressor is running since it is getting down to 27 but if it is not being cooled it will shut down. Another common problem on the ge refrigerator is the main board contacts going bad and not running the compressor. If your compressor is running the whole time and none of the other conditions exist it sounds like you have a leak or restriction in the refrigerant or sealed system.

GE Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its running....do this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.

Not cooling or freezing


When the compressor is running, both the fan inside the freezer and the fan down by the compressor should be running. If OK, look for frost on the back wall of the freezer, indicating a probable defrost heater failure. If yes, remove back metal cover in freezer, defrost with hair blower, replace defrost heater (the thing at the bottom of the freezer coils with two wires going to it)
If no to these, send me an "ask me" follow up question.

Fan is Running


Your refrigerator isn't defrosting. When you melted the ice on the coils in the freezer you might have noticed a glass tube with a wire going into each end this is your defrost element that is probably bad. If it tests out good then your problem is either in the defrost thermostat, or the motherboard that tells your fridge when to defrost.
