Hi!! you will need to replace a sensor in the fridge behind the back cover! this is due to iceup around the fan in this back cover! even if you defrost it, it will do it again so turn off from plug for 24 hours but leave the fridge door open other wise it wont totaly defrost! then open back cover in fridge with care and you will see a small white plastic attached on double wire which is pluged in to a socket on the right side in a squre box! very rare somtimes the heating element goes too which has to be tested! you can use a steam machine to defrost it in an hour which is safe providing you dont put steam in to the electics in the squre box! oh make sure you take plug out before you start to steam. take care when doind this to take off back cover in fridge as if you force out the cover without melting the ice behind it it will damage the cover! in expert hands it looks easy so good luck!

Sounds like the compressor unit has gone out. It will need to be replaced. When you call somebody to come out and fix it, make sure its a company that is trusted and bonded. Call around and get estimates.

Freezer is thawing out... motor is running.


Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I have a GE referigerator Model # GSH25KGRE of 4 years old... I hear a constant click-click noise coming from the back/motor..and I suspect the temp in the freezer is slowly dying down..


The clicking behind the refrig , is comming from the main control board , behind the 8" X 10 " panel . The part number is WR55X10656 . The compressor relay , on the board has burnt . Yes , your freezer is thawing , due to the clicking .

Freezer is thawing - water dripping -


Hi, if the clicking noise is coming from the back, it is the relay on the compressor. It os possible that the compressor is bad but, most common it is the relay.
Is this under 5 years old? (warranty)
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Check your blower inside the unit, blower frame may be deformed causing the blower to touch the frame make some noise.

GIBSON DEEP FREEZE IS RUNNING BUT EVERYTHING IS THAWING OUT


Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....

Loud buzzing noise from compressor area and freezer not cold enough


I have a 1.5 year old GE refrigerator and freezer. This unit had not given me any problems until 2 days ago when I constantly heard a loud buzzing sound coming from the freezer. I called GE and Best Buy (bought it there) and asked to troubleshoot this over the phone. They suggested sending a technician over for $100 just for the visit + labor + parts which could add up to hundreds of dollars. So, I researched the web and blogs like this. The answer to my problem was simple. Something that I placed inside the freezer was blocking the air circulation vent. So, I turned off the whole refridgerator and I removed everything from my freezer. For good measure I dislodged some ice and frost that had developed over the vent. I carefully put back everything into the freezer, but this time being careful not to block the vent. I turned on the power and voila! No more buzzing sound!!! I hope this works for you too.

Refrigerator/freezer is warm, fan is running.


The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.
