Ge refrigerator model gss22wgph bb

Side by side frige is only 2 years old but the freezer side is cold...the refrige side is not cooling. I checked the freezer vent that cools the frige side and it's not obstructed. I noticed a thin layer of ice on the back panel inside the freezer and that the bottom of the freezer is cold than the top part where the vent that cools the frige is located. What should I do?

    Its an Ice Craft bar freezer, model nr G.85-3/W serial nr B47882. Its a very old freezer, on the lable it says ( a product of autocraft ) It been working for ever and I let it stand for about 2 weeks and now its not working anymore, the pyps at the back is still heating up so it sugests that there is something going on, but its is not cooling on the inside. As I said, its very old and been in the family for more then 25 Years. Pleas help me to repair my old friend.

Carben,

I have the same problem and I am able to resolve it by defrosting the element which is behind the inside rear panel of the freezer. I use a hair dryer to melt the ice build up. It happbed a couple of times so I know that there is a cause for this which may be the defrost heater but I am not sure how to confirm this. Let me know if you have any ideas.

If you remove the rear panel or cover in the freezer compartment and expose the evaporator fins, you will notice an element attached to the bottom of the fins, the wires go out the back. This is a metal tube about the thickness of a thin pencil. It needs changing.

My side by side Model GSH22KGRE BB freezer is


there is one of 2 possibilities,either the damper door between the refrige and freezer compartments is frozen shut due to ice build up and needs thaw out,the cold control that controls this door is bad or the mother board on the lower rear apron behind a cover panel is defective,if you have had light bulbs go out in the refrige compartment and now the refrige part does not cool and the temp light readout is dark this is a good indication its the motherboard,also if the lights are strobing and you can hear a relay clicking

Frige not cooling


The GE Profile is a complex but efficient refrigerator. We will need to check a few things like the evaporator, defrost element, defrost thermostat and the mother board. Let me know if you want me to go through this with you, Thanks, Sea Breeze
