Try turning off the fridge, and unplugging it or throw off the breaker, for 5minutes!
then plug it in and turn it back on. We are trying to reset the system like when you reboot your computer. Let me know that it worked!!

SOURCE: Upright freezer door inside developing ice

The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.

SOURCE: water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer

the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Replaced the defrost heater,defrost thermostat,worked good for about 3


If the icemaker refill solenoid does not close properly or stays open too long excess water enters freezer compartment and that will freeze over the ice making machine plus other areas of freezer. There is an adjustment on the ice maker to regulate the amount of water going in - locate the screw (behind front panel of maker) and turn counter clockwise to lessen time of fill operation). Problem is not with the GE

Hello, The unit is freezeing because you are having a fault when the unit is trying to go into its defrost cycle. Click this link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/R0303508-00003.png you would have to perform a continuity test on parts 20 and 14 using a multimeter to see which of these two is at fault. Usually it is part 20 which is the defrost thermostat that causes this issue in the unit. If you do test both of these parts and both do have continuity message me back for further diagnosis. Thanks I await your reply and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks

Coils frozeup and iced on top shelf of freezer---did a defrost--when shut the door don't hear the shhhh sound-nothing blocking it and seal is good--light is on but won't freeze any food--threw out alot! ...


Defrost the unit totally so you can see no more ice, may take a day or more with door open, once done, restart the unit, check you can hear the fan running in the freezer, if not, replace fan unit, if you can hear it, the defrost timmer may have failed or the defrost element has gone. If the unit appears to work correctly, dont be fooled, the problem will return, if the unit does not work as it should, regas is required. Hope that helps.

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem


Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

Water build up in the freezer


When your refrigerator defrost the condensation has no place to exit to because of a restriction in the drain and that could be water that has turned into ice or possiably a food partical or foreign object. Defrost it compleatly by leaving freezer door open for aprox. an hour at least make sure ref is level front to back an d you should not have this problem anymore. Please rate me and let me know if this helped. Thanks

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.
