20 Most Recent GE PSW26SGRSS Side by Side Refrigerator Questions & Answers


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

It snaps in place by lifting the plastic cover. Then when you replace push it in then down. It has two tabs one on each end.

Called GE Service Dept. My refrigerator was way out of the warrant period. They came out and replaced the main circuit board at NO CHARGE.

unless you plan on putting this unit outside or on your porch, then the outside temps wont matter. refr's are designed to work from 50 f to 110 f, sorry dont know the conversion to celcius, but if it will be inside then you wont need to change anything.
during the hot times the unit will just run longer to keep the food cold and it will be fine.

Take the ice maker out and pull the square cover off of it. If you have the type with a plastic "gear" (about the size of a half dollar) on it check to see if the tabs that hold it in place are not broken (it's common). The gear can get cocked or even fall off and that will cause the IM to stop working. If it's the type with a circuit board in it check it for loose connectors, etc. Both types have a thermostat in them to sense the temp of the freezer (must be about 15-17F for IM to work). It's rare that the t-stats go out but it can happen. The "motor module" is a high failure item (about $60 bucks and easy to replace). Let us know what you find.

Check under the front of the fridge for a small envelope that contains the wire diagram, that should let you follow the paths for troubleshooting. I don't have that schematic so have no "visual" way to guide you from here.

GE PSW26SGRSS... | Answered on Jan 13, 2007


The control board is likely gone bad or a wire harness inside the front came loose. With all those indications, I'd lean toward a dead board.

the magnet seal arount the door needs to be replace, ypu can purchsase this and simply remove the old and and glue on the new one.

another quick fix method is to use a hax and staple type lock and screw the stape on the frodge and the hax on the door sor sfter you puch in the door simply staple it shut.

I had the same problem. The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. What had happened in my case is the plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard had become unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge, and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. I just reconnected it and that reset the display. Glad for it too, I thought I needed a new $130 motherboard! Hope this helped!

It is the job of the refrigeration system to move heat from inside the cabinet to the outside - that is why when it works correctly, the compressor runs and the condenser and some of the pipework becomes quite warm (hand hot in some cases).
If this is happening it proves heat is being moved though if the cabinet doesn't become colder it is possible the heat that is being moved could be coming, in a frost free appliance, from the defrost heating element that must be permanently on due to a timer or thermostat fault. The defrost heater usually is switched on only for a short time at the end of each cooling cycle.

If the condenser isn't warm while the compressor is running, it could be the compressor is broken or the refrigerant has leaked away.

check the gas of the refrigerator, due to lack of gas fridge can't process to freeze properly.

sometimes the water line in the back wall of freezer will freeze up so the water will not run into ice tray try using a hair dryer to heat the back wall long enough to thaw it out then turn freezer control down some..
