Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

My GE model GSH25JFTCBB side by side is not cooling in the fridge side. Freezer seems to be doing fine. What could be wrong

Unplugged for 24 hours and plugged back in and it did fine for about a month. Now fridge is not cooling again.

    one more thing,if you do remove the back inside wall of the freezer look at the top of the coil,you'll see the thermostat and you should see a white sensor,look at the sensor it looks like a white bullet,if where the wires connect to it has a black ring around it you have to change the sensor out.the new sensor is all white,part number wr55x10025.also here's a copy of your computer board or mother board part number wr55x10942

    sorry that's a copy of your board,if you look at j9 and j11 you can jump out your board and turn the defrost on,if the heater comes on then change out the board and sensor.i unplug the machine,pull off the gray plug that goes to those pins,i get two wires,stick one end into the j9 and then get the other wire and stick it into the j11,then with another wire with alligator clips on it clip the wires onto the board pins j9 and j11,plug the machine back in,this way the compressor doesn't start up,also sometimes you can look at the thermostat,if the top of it is popped up you know it's bad just by looking at it,water somehow gets into the t-stat and it pops one side of the top up.hope this info helps you out.

You could have a defrost problem,a bad damper,bad computer board.first thing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing in there?you should,if not the evap fan motor is bad,if it's blowing touch the back inside wall of the freezer to see if any frost or like snow is on it,from the bottom up in the freezer remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall with your hand,if it has frost or snow you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,sensor or board,if there isn't anything on the wall then you have a bad damper,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,then the evaporator fan in the freezer blows the cold air over into the fridge section,you have a damper in your machine that opens and closes when it's cold enough or when it needs to get colder,the door on the damper isn't opening to let the cold air in when it calls for cold air.if you can write back and let me know what you find and hopefully we can get it fixed.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

SOURCE: Stopped cooling but i can hear running

The overload/relay is probably bad .This is the part plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires plugged onto it . You can easily replace this part . Be sure to have your model number when ordering .

Side by side GE turbo-cool Gss25XSRBSS, the freezer seems to be fine, the fridge is not cooling. Fans seem to be running smoothly, no weird noises. Turbo cool turns on. It hasn't been running for


if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112
this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.

GSS22JEMC fridge is only 50 degrees on coldest setting. Freezer works fine.


Your fridge 100% depends on the freezer. Most likely you have a defrost system problem (look for icying up on the freezer wall). You can try to defrost it by unplugging it for 24 hours.

GE REFRIG. MODEL#TFX30PRYAA. side by side both


It sounds like your defrost control timer is working, but your defrost heater is most likely burnt out. It is a part number WR51X443
and is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Turning the refrig off for 24 hours helped melt some of the accumulated frost, but not all. You will have to take that back cover off inside the freezer and melt all the frost with a hair blower, replace the defrost heater and reassemble.

GE Profile - Fridge Doesn't Cool But Freezer Works Fine


Had a similar problem with my Kenwood Fridge Freezer
If you're mechanically minded you could check if there's an opening and motorised flap (usually behind a cover) at the top of the fridge - Cold air from the freezer enters the fridge through this flap) The Sound you heard could have been the motor trying to open / close this flap. This flap can become frozen in the closed position - so cold air is unable to enter the fridge compartment) My fix was to thaw it with a hairdryer and reassemble. Another fix would be to empty the freezer and open the doors - it might take more than 24 hours but once completely defrosted if the flap is the issue it will have defrosted. Once plugged in again the door will open and cold air will start to flow into the fridge compartment. I had a quote for €195 for a call out / repair
I fixed it myself in an hour - Hope it works for you ...
