My GE upright freezer does not get cold.

Sounds like the system is low on freon. The other common problem is a dirty condenser. Insure the condenser is clean, if it is. You will need to charge the system with freon. Which only a qualified refrigeration tech should do.

I have a 20 cf upright GE freezer that isn't


it may be froze up, and require a defrosting. use a portable fan to speed up this process , also make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working, with a little work and a zoom spout oiler, or some light motor oil, the motor can be sparked back to life.. freeze ups are common with the high humidity we are having these days.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood Florida

My GE upright frost free freezer is not cold enough to freeze food anymore.....its cold but not freezer cold....stuff is defrosting....what could be wrong. I hear it running, but I dont hear it go off...


without getting all technical, look for the condenser coil and be sure it is clean. Some are under the refrigerator and can be accessed by removing a "kick plate." Some are under and in the back and can be accessed by removing a cover with a few screws. Some units have a small fan that moves air over the condenser coil. Look for it and see if it is running. And then there are some that have coils that run up the rear of the unit and when it is pushed back against the wall, the air can not circulate and can cause this issue. This is the simple first step to do before getting a service tech involved.

Hi! I have a GE Freezer Model FUF14DTARWH that runs but the coils are not getting cold enough to freeze???


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

My GE freezer stopped cooling. I turned it off,


Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

Not Freezing, but cold


The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first. Hope this has helped you, Sea Breeze
