I have model number PDE18LZRBB. Freezer works fine; refrigerator section will not cool properly.


Your problem is usually caused by poor air circulation. The only way the refrig section gets cold is from the fan in the freezer blowing cold air into the refrig section. The fan should be behind the back wall of the freezer and should be running at the same time the complete refrigerator is running. No fan run---no cold in the fresh food section.

On my GE refrigerator is not getting cold at all in the refrig nor the freezer. When I open the door the light is on and the fan is running. Is there an enteral fuise?


The compressor relay is bad on the main control board . Unplug the refrig and pull the refrig out and remove the 8X10 small panel on the back . You will see a blue plug with 3 larger (120v) wires going to it . Remove this plug . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . (this is on the plug NOT the board ) . Using a short piece of insulated wire , with about 1/4" stripped off both ends , insert 1 end into wire1 and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . This will start the compressor to verify the main control board is bad . Pt # WR55X10942 .

GE Profile french door refrig not cooling but freezer is cold


your damper vent door is not opening to let the freezers cold air in to the refrigerator compartment,its located between the refrige and freezer,also make sure the evaporator fans are running to move the cold air

MY REFRIGERATOR MODEL#GSS20IETA BB DOES NOT GET COLD IN THE REFRIGEATOR SIDE . WHAT COULD THIS BE?


open the freezer and listen for the evaporator fan motor, if you can't hear it running then you need to replace it. it pushes the cold air from the freezer into the fridge to keep it cold.

Side by side refridge was dirty and I cleaned


I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .

Warm in freezer and refrig


On some Amana refrigs , the defrost thermostat has to close before the fan will come on . The coils will get cold and since the bimetal clips onto the coils , it will get cold as they do . When cold enough , bimetal closes and the fan will come on . Are the coils getting cold ? If so , then the compressor is working . You could also have a bad fan motor instead of bimetal . Recheck to see if you hear the fan in freezer now .

GE Side by side refrigerator not working


THE FREEZER FAN BLOWS COLD AIR TO THE FRIDGE SIDE, TO ACCESS THIS FAN YOU NEED TO EMPTY THE FREEZER SIDE AND REMOVE THE REAR PANEL SOMETIMES A WHIRL OF IT WILL GET IT SPINNING AGAIN BUT YOU MAY AS WELL CHANGE IT

Refrigerator and freezer


Is the fan behind the back panel underneath
running (condenser fan) may be dead or clogged
with something if not thats the problem if it is
running take a vac attachment and clean
the dust or blow the dust from underneath
the refrigerator (after turning it off)dont bend
anything,After verifying the condenser fan runs
and cleaning the condenser try it out

If there is no improvement and,
If the system has not been opened before I
would say there is a leak in the system
(low charge) Requires the
attention of a service person
