Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a GE Profile Side by Side TPX21PR/Tpx21BR. The freezer is not freezing ice cream or even bread, but the meat seems fine. There has been a loud noise emanating from the unit for over a year.

    The side by side is about 1996, but was not really used until 2004. It sounds as though the noise is coming from underneath, and is hard to determine exactly where. The freezer is not freezing bread or ice cream. The fridge part seems to be working okay. I do not think that the ice maker is freezing the cubes as well as in the past. Thank you for any help.

Hi,

Kindly provide few more details so that i could provide more appropriate solution to your problem :-

1. How old is the unit?
2. Kindly hear the noise - Is it from the freezer section or upper back or lower back of the refrigerator?
3. Do you hear the compressor running?
4. Any problem with temperature in lower section or is it limited to freezer section?

My freezer does not keep my ice cream hard, yet it freezes meats, etc. without a problem. What is wrong?


You don't note whether or not you've adjusted the thermostat. Ice cream (and juices) requires at least zero degrees, if not minus 5 degrees, for storage. Meats, fish, bread, etc. can become rock hard at much higher temperatures. Try setting the thermostat lower.

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem


Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

Some items in freezer are not frozen: bread, cool whip, etc. Meat and veggies ARE frozen. any idea?


This is normal for these particular items. They don't "seem" to be frozen but they are fine. If everything else is frozen that should be, like, ice cream, ice cubes, frozen vegetables, then you don't have a problem. Do make sure your freezer is not building up ice anywhere and that the door is completely shut when you close it.

Freezer not freezing


not freezing icedraem is an issue, bread not so much, different breads contain different ingrediants that may or may not freeze, forst offthough wher is unit located??? in garage??? if so be aware that it may not operate efficiently ion ambient temps lower then 55 degrees, but if this is in your kitchen i would suspect a "refrigeration"/sealed system issue, perhaps "low on charge and not able to maintain a frozen set temp. Meat may stay frozen ( for a little while anyway, but the ice cream is the first to show indications of problem

Follow up to question: meat & veg tray freezing food on new side by sid refrigerator


with very littlle ice cream I would set freezer temperature to -2 degrees and leave the humidity seting where you have it remember to let the unit run for 24 hours to stabilize then you can make another adjustment. By the way you are not being a pest I don't mind helping you at all, I am a service manager and answer quesitons allo day long.

Bosch frost free fridge freezer not freezing ice cream/pops at all and meat not totally frozen


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
