Question about GE GSH25JSTSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Side by side GE frig

If I left the freezer door an inch open for a couple days while gone and thus it stopped cooling, could I unplug the refrigerator for 24hrs or more to let it defrost to correct the problem or are there elements I need to change out?

I'm assuming you didn't turn the unit off! It may take 2 days to get that defrosting done. Don't forget to clean the condenser coil.

Nothing else should be needed....Good luck!

Have a GE side by side gsh22sgress unit. Child left freezer door open. Unit ran for days (in non-occupied appartment). Meat thawed. Cleaned unit inside with mild soapy mix. Unit runs but will not cool...

Open door let too much moisture into refrigerator. (The cooling coils, behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, are blocked with frost) If you unplug the refrig for a day or so it will work again, or you can take the back wall out from inside the freezer and melt the frost with a hair blower.

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling

Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

Freezer goes through a cycle and get warm. The ice will start melting and create a mess when the freezer start to cool agian. Temperture in frig and freezer does not hold cool.

Unplug, empty, clean and let set for 24 hours to defrost the cooling coil that is froze solid overwhelming the heater and not letting it work. if the air can't circulate it will not cool. Check door gasket, or tell kids to stop holding the door open as this will cause it to frost up and cause the problem you're having.. Trust me, It works.

GE Profile temperature going up and down

One of four problems,

1: this box has two sensors in the freezer... one on the top of the evap and one on the bottom left side of freezer cabinet (little small round white things) in the back lower portion of the freezer. These have been know to go bad and cause this problem.

2: you have a defrost problem caused by a bad main board or bad defrost heater.

3: you have a evap fan going bad on you, quits when frig gets to right temps. in other words the fan doesn't like the extreme colds,

4: door gaskets are leaking air around doors.

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

Frig side is not cooling.

Check if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer, if so it is not defrosting. Many GE fridges need a new defrost heater every couple of years. If it's not defrosting, you can get by for a while by unplugging the fridge and leaving the freezer door open for 24 hrs, then plugging back in.

Refrigerator stopped cooling

the back panel inside the freezer has screws in it. take out the screws to remove that panel. the coils are behind that. melt all the frost. youll see one or 2 heating elements in there also. replace the elements. its a common ge problem. this will fix the problem
