Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I'm working on a GE Profile refrigerator. The fresh food side evap keeps freezing up. I have replaced the main control bd and the fresh food evap fan assm, and not the customer says it's building up frost again


Answers :

The fault can be a faulty defrost timer which is not performing the scheduled defrosting and allowing the frost to form up.
\015\012So check this out and see if the timer triggers the heaters to defrost off the frost when it switches on.
\015\012Since the fridge is working otherwise fine this can be the only reason.
Hi,\015\012
\015\012There will be an heating element present in the evaporator coil which defrosts it often.It defrost it 4 to 5 times a day.Check this heating element.This may be damaged and it is not heating up.\015\012
\015\012Thank You

Evaporator is clear( no frost), and I'm just about out of ideas. Last ditch effort is evaporator thermistor. Any thoughts?


There's a temp sensor on the evap coil part WR55X10025,i would change that out and when you changed the board if there's a wire in the second pin of the connector with ithink 9 pins on it you have to cut the wire that's in the second pin,if there's n ... GE Refrigerators

JennAir JCD2389GES I am having a problem with the cooling in the fresh food portion. Based on what I have read on previous posts, I opened up the freezer and defrosted it (lots of ice build up). I expected this to at least temporarily solve the proble, but no luck. The fresh food section is still too warm. I do feel some cool air coming in to the fresh food section, but obviously it is not enough. Help!

Gee I don't know what brand you have so I gotta shoot from the hip. As you know the freezer is where the cold air for the fresh food compartment originates. What you have is some sort of control problem. I suspect it is a sensor. These sensors change ... Refrigerators

Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I


The compressor CAN run and still be defective. It's like having a car engine with a bad cylinder-it loses compression and therefore loses power. Unfortunately, this is indicitive of Frigidaire refrigerators. If the compressor will try and start, m ... Frigidaire FRT17G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator

The freezer compartment temperature is -17 deg but the fresh food compartment is 15 deg at the top and 4 deg at the bottom. It would seem that the fan to the fresh food compartment is not operating.

When freezer is in defrost, inside temperature rises to 40 degrees F. The technician says this is normal. Problem is, the food is defrosting and we get frost on the food. Ice cream turns to liquid.

A customer has an NEC 2/door frg Model FR 450 Complaint freezer not cold enough no better than -6'c even when freezer temp set max. Have checked refrigeration system and sealed system has -25'c saturated suction and evap coil is fully frosted, evap fan tested and ran ok. I concluded that the freezer temp sensor was at fault. I was advised by NEC aka(AWA) that this part is discontinued and no longer available. As I do not have the sevice book for this model I cannot check resistance of sensors.
