Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Model # GSS25LSMF-BS refrigerator section too cold, frost build up on back of refrigerator section, compressor runs until the cold control is set to 0


Answers :

Follow these steps :

There are two controls: The thermostat which controls the freezer temperature, and the spillover damper control which controls how much air from the freezer section spills over into the refrigerator section.

It sounds like you are adjusting the spillover. The freezer may be too cold, over cooling the refrigerator at minimum spillover setting. Find the thermostat (the other control), and turn it up a little.

We have GE Profile Refrigerator/Freezer(bottom section) model # PDS18LBMAWW. The Refrigerator section is room temp (temp control set to mid-point). The freezer section below is cold (ice cubes solid). I cleaned the very dusty compressor coil. Compressor fan is running and the compressor itself is running...I think.

About 36 hours ago our Whirlpool 25.2 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED25CQXFW02 was not cooling (frozen was thawing, and refrigerator was not cold) the compressor and fan were running, I cleaned the coils underneath, and set the controls to startup normal. Within a couple of hours I could tell that it was cooling well again. Today this has happened again, the compressor and fan were not running, I shut it off for a few minuets and restarted it. Now the compressor and fan are on again, and it

My refrigerator was not cooling and I found the evaporator coil frozen over. I replaced the defrost control board and now everything is very cold. My refrigerator is freezing everything. It won't shut off, no matter what the temperature setting. Compressor running constantly. I have turned freezer setting down and fridge temperature setting is all the way to the 0 position.

Refrigerator side light is out, but the compressor sounds like it's still running, plus the food is still cold. Interesting, when I turn the control knob to off, the light comes back on, but the compressor stops. When I turn the knob back to a normal setting (e.g., 4), the compressor starts back up but the light goes back out. Is this a control board/timer issue as well? Refrig is a 2004 model.


Have never seen a ref of this style with a control board I would say you have some sort of wireing short. if the control is turned off the lights will still stay on, but they also should be on when if running ...

Amana French door, bottom mount freezer, Model AFD2535FES. Refrigerator and freezer are not cooling. Controls to set temperature of fridge and freezer (these are inside the refrigerator unit) appear to be working - that is, they are lighted and respond to changes in the settings. Fan appears to be running but compressor does not appear to start or run and refrigerator and freezer are not cooling at all. Is this possibly a control board issue or a compressor issue? If it is likely a control board

Model 550 Refrigerator constantly running. Had a Subzero repairman in and he said the evaporator coil is leaking and the refrigerator compressor is running constantly to keep up to temperature. I have it set at 5 and the temperature is 38 degrees. I decided to turn the freezer control to off (to make sure that compressor was not running) so I could move the refrigerator control warmer to see if it cycled off. When I turned the freezer off, the entire unit went silent; it apparently was the freez

I have a 4 yr old Frigidare frostfree top mounted refrigerator; it's used only seasonally (5 months a yr). The freezer works, but the lower section does not get cold. I've turn the controls both in the freezer and the lower portion, but that still does not help the lower section get colder. I've recently put a refrigerator thermometer in the lower section and it's only reading 62 degrees. I've also noticed that there is now a build up of ice in the freezer.

Hi, I have an Amana bottom freezer Model BX22S5L and the Fresh Food section will not cool anymore no matter what the setting. The freezer section is fine so the compressor is running. Not sure if I should remove and replace the Fresh Food control. Would appreciate any help. If you think that is the problem, how is that control removed? Thanks so much, Bob


This could be a damper issue, and it could be a defrosting problem causing it to ice up and freeze shut. It could also be a control board problem. This site has some good reference diagrams and parts lists for your unit:\015\012 ... Refrigerators

Both the freezer and lower section of refrigerator does not get very cold even at the highest settings. The motor seems to be running all the time and is noisy. Yesterday though I noticed it not running at all and found the food in the freezer starting to thaw. After awhile the motor started again, but still doesnt get very cold. A bottle of water will freeze if left overnight and it will make ice, but ice cream does not get hard. Any ideas?

Ok... I have a FRU17G4JW refrigerator that just stopped cooling. Compressor is running. Charge while running is 80PSI on the HS and 18" on the LS. The evaporator fan sounds like it is running.
