Our Side by Side GE Freezer (Arctica) is running warm on the freezer side - even though we have the thermostat set at 0 (zero degrees). The temp reads 19 degrees and we can't figure out why. Fridge, for the most part, works fine.

    Temp in freezer and fridge too warm at times. Set at 0 and 37 degrees respectively. Sometimes temps are right on, other times Freezer temp says 10 (even though ice cream is melting) and fridge will either be at set temp or 6-8 degrees above that?????

What is the ideal temp setting in GE side by side refrigirator. I have Freezer (0-9) Refrigirator (0-9) There was ice on the Freezer wall and the service guy replaced the defrost thermostat recently


If replacing the defrost thermostat fixed the icing problem that doesn't indicate your settings are wrong. But the desired temp in the freezer is from 0 to 10 degrees and in the fridge around 35 degrees.The actual number on your dial depends on the personal use. Use a thermometer to check it and allow 24 hours after changing it to check it.

Freezer working fine, Fridge is freezing everything on low settin


THERMOSTAT ON 90% OF SIDE/SIDE REFRIGERATOR IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FRIG COMPARTMENT .YOU KNOW, THE ONE THAT HAS OFF ON IT AND USUALLY NUMBERS. YOU WILL HAVE TO DROP THE PANEL TO ACCESS THE THERMOSTAT. ALSO NOTE THAT AN INDICATION OF A STUCK THERMOSTAT IS WHEN THE COMPRESSOR RUNS AND RUNS AND DOESN'T SHUT OFF.ALSO CHECK FREEZER TEMP TO SEE IF IT IS BELOW 0 DEGREES THAT ALSO INDICATES STUCK THERMOSTAT.

Fridge not cooling or freezing


Work on the fridge problem first and the freezer may be fixed by that.

1/Thermostats lose sensitivity over time. The thermostat or sensor may be defective.
or
2/ You have lost some of your refrigerant and it is undercharged. It does evaporate very slowly but a pinhole would lose it in minutes.

Do not continue to run it or your compressor may overheat and fail. The sides of the fridge are probably quite warm from this happening already.

Does not stop cooling down


Door edges being warm is caused by what is called mullion heaters that operate to prevent humidity from condensing at these points.
Some refrigerators have an energy saver switch. Turn this switch if you have one to the energy saving position when the humidity is low. Is anything freezing in the refrigerator? If so setting the controls to a little higher setting may solve your problem.
