I have a 10 year old GE side by side GSS25JFMB that is not cooling properly. Called a tech in and he said it was the motherboard but his info. was conflicting at times. All fans work and we do not have a...


The motherboard controls everything. I would check to see if the compressor is running. If not, the compressor or its starting components(relay,overload) or the motherboard could be bad. Motherboard failure is very common on this frig.

My fridge is not getting as cold as before 6 years old freezer still frozen but cooling fan doesnt seem to be as fast as before dont hear the cracklin sound any more


Let me ask you something without your getting mad ... do you work as good today as you did 6 years ago?

As things, particularly electrical things, age, the value of the components deteriorates (like my knees did). Mechanical devices not only have their components ravaged by power outages, spikes and other punishment but they also collect dirt further complicating their operation.

What you should do is assure your frig is clean, no dust or dirt in the cooling fins, that it can breathe, that hopefully it doesn't live between the stove and the dishwasher. That the kids don't hold the door open for extended periods of time. That you don't put hot left overs into the frig. All internal ventilation is able to breathe ...

Just a few thoughs to help your frig enjoy a long life.

Thanks for your visit to day and please come again.

Refrigerator side not cooling. The freezer works fine. Its age is over ten years old. Model GE TFX22R.


Is there any frost build up on the freezer panel? If not, this could be a damper door issue. Check to see if air is coming from the damper, this is the vent inside the back left-corner of the fresh food side, assuming the evap fan is running. If you feel nothing, it more than likely is your damper door.


If you have frost build up, we're talking about a defrost issue then. Let me know!

Frig not very cold & metal between freezer and frig gets hot


Poor cooling and a hot divider mean that air is not moving effectively over the condenser coils under the fridge. Check to see if the fan is blowing under there while the compressor is running. If not, then the condenser fan has failed and needs to be replaced. If it is, then use a vacuum with a long nozzle to give it a good cleaning under there.

Doesn't cool fresh food


It´s probably overloaded. Any refrigerator has a specific cooling capacity eg x Kg/24hours. you must check that capacity and charge acording to that.
