Question about GE GSS25JFPCC / GSS25JFPWW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ge fridge not cooling

I assume this model is close to mine. Mine is gss25lgmabb. Compressor hot to the touch. Put kick start on and comp. ran lock roter amps. removed kick start and cmpressor ran, condensor fan was running as well as evaporater fan but i had no cooling at all in freezer or refrig. All coils are clean. Could the comp. be going off and on? Ther arnt any ports to check refrigerant level. The display for the temp. settings in the refrig. department are not on. I checked the capacitor it test good. does this model have the start assist on the side of the comp?

    I did find a leak in the evap coil. I replaced coil charged the systemby weighing in the required 4.5 oz. of 134-a refrigerant. Still there is no cooling at all. What should be the equalized pressure be and the running pressure. Found no sign of a restiction, compressor is hot to the touch.

Are you sure that the compressor is running? If it is and you have no cooling it sounds like you have a leak in the system and there is no gas left. Most refrigerators have a 5 year warrenty on the sealed system. If you fall into the 5 years you may want to call GE. also there is a electronic control bord that comtrols the unit that could also be defective causing the compressor not to start. Good Luck hand hope this helped you some.

MAGIC CHEF MCBR 360S Mini Fridge and compressor is not working or cooling. No sound at all from unit. See more details below please. Thank you!

The compressor being hot means it is getting power to it. 2 possible problems. The compressor is locked up internally (too expensive) or the start relay or overload could be bad (approx cost for both parts about $45). You have to decide if you want to risk $50 and still find out you have a bad compressor. Most service techs have a direct test harness to hook up to compressors and make them run without the start relay and overload but not everyone knows how to do it properly.

Refrigerator Compressor hot to touch & fridge/freezer not cooling

you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike

Fridge temp high

freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.

Freezer not working

The compressor does run warm but not hot, if the freezer is not cooling then the comp is faulty, approach local repair agent for cost. Regards The Advisor Smeg Agent
