  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Listen to sound where is it coming from bottom back? Or inside near back wall . noise could be ice on or around evaporator fan if you can unplug for 12 hours leave doors open this will melt ice . if it is ice that will fix it.

    Vegetables in crisper are frozen, as well as liquids in bottom 1/2 of fridge door. The fridge & freezer temp controls won't adjust to our settings. Also, we're getting ice, but no water will dispense.


    The freezer cools the refrigerator, so you actually get very cold air passing from the freezer to the refrig. The air from the freezer enters the refrig on the top and falls to the bottom where it is drawn back into the freezer. The temperature of the refrig is regulated by a thermostat and a fan that runs when the thermostat calls for cooling. If the refrig thermostat is faulty and causes the fan to run more than it should, there will be a freezing problem in the refrig at the bottom because cold air falls and warm air rises. If the refrig is thermostat is calling for cooling constantly, this will take more cold air from the freezer than is normal. Your freezer temp might be higher than normal and the refrig will be colder then desired. If the fan from the freezer is running constantly I would suspect a bad refrig thermostat.

    Freezer is cold, has ice on bottom. Frig side is constant 50 degrees. It is constantly running also.


    the defrost has melted the ice,now the drain tray is plugged and needs a wire run down from the drain in the freezer to the condenser pan so it can evaporate,as this fools the temp thermostat trying to cool the refrige compartment to keep trying to cool the unitif theres water dripping into the fridge rom the freezer this is a good indicator of this problem

    The drain for the auto defrost water is plugged up somewhere.You will need to look at the very back and bottom inside the freezer to see if you can locate it and clean it out.Also you may have to pull the refrig out from the wall and try to get to it from the back.Hope this aleast gets you looking in the right direction.

    My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting...


    That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch if the fan is not running .

    GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.


    The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
    The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

    Roaring sound


    I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
    Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

    Our trio keeps defaulting to er if


    er if means the icemaker fan has quit working and since its not cooling the cooling fan may have quit as well.  the probable problem is ice build up in the motors keeping them from running causing the computer to post the code. one thing you could try is to unload the food and manually defrost the refrig to allow the ice to melt out. this will take several hours so be prepared. If your mechanicaly inclined you could remove the cover in the freezer section and defrost the ice with a hair dryer (this would involve removing the freezer slide drawer and all interior racks in the freezer compartment). Let me know if I can assist you further Thanks Peyton

    Fridge on top of freezer is not chilling


    if you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this

    1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor
    IF fan is running check these things
    1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch
    2. ensure door shuts
    3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille)
    4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up
