20 Most Recent GE 20.3 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Refrigerators Questions & Answers

Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

The clicking noise is likely the compressor overload tripping.

Here are some tips that may help solve your problem:

  • You will need to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Carefully remove the cardboard cover at the bottom of the back panel of the refrigerator to access the coils and clean under the refrigerator. To thoroughly clean the coils, I recommend that you obtain and use a coil brush. It is a long, round brush with a handle designed for cleaning refrigerator coils.
  • Check your condenser fan to make sure that it is running when the compressor is on. If not, this could be causing your problem.
  • Be sure to replace the cardboard cover on the bottom of the back panel of the refrigerator. If this cover is not in place, air will not flow over the coils properly.
  • Re-post with your findings.

That probably is the compressor relay. Remove it and shake it to see if it has loose stuff inside it.

When the compressor is replaced, the coolant must be removed, fit the compressor, bring the system down to a vacuum then refill with coolant.
I would get the refrigeration guy back to check for a leak caused by a bad installation.
By the way, FREON is no longer used at it causes depletion of the ozone layer.

If it is a newer model you can look for set screws on the inside of the handles. Use a small allen wrench to loosen the set screws and lift up on the handles.

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!

Hello. The water inlet float is broken/inoperative in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. This causes a overfill/flooding condition.

If you are talking F then that is too low at -10, F? is what is required.
If C then the FF (whatever that means) at 40C is too hot and -20 is about right for a freezer.
