Question about GE GSS25JFPCC / GSS25JFPWW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves

I have a GE GSS22JFMD WW side by side. Yesterday we noticed the top shelf of the fridge seemed quite warm but the lower shelves were cooler, and the freezer seemed fine. Later in the day the top shelf of the freezer warmed above freezing, top shelf of fridge at 60 degrees but bottom shelf at 45 (with temp control moved up to 9). I'm assuming some sort of derfost problem? There is some ice on the back wall of the freezer. I've read so much about recurring problems with these I'm wondering if it is worth fixing, and about how much to expect to spend?
Thanks for any info!

How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

Hotpoint fridge problem, warm fride, but freezer working good


Fridge along bottom shelves is much colder than the very top shelf which has milk etc., leading to spoilage. Fridge is at highest setting. In the upper left rear of the fridge compartment, is a cover for what I believe to be a circulatory fan. However, trying to remove this cover is difficult.
It seems that the clip nuts to which the two (2) small capscrews fasten are free wheeling and not allowing me easy access to the motor.

Please advise.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Side by side refrigerator problem GSH25KGRB WW


I have the same problem with my GE fridge.  I inherited the fridge with the purchase of my house.  There is a coil located in the back of of the freezer.  Remove the wire shelves and remove the screws and remove the back panel inside of the freezer.  I can almost guarantee your coil is completely iced.  I just use a hardryer to remove the ice.  I need to perform this once every four weeks.  It's a bummer.
