We have 15 month old side by side GE GSHF5PGXAEBB. In the last week we have woken up to find the fridge temp warm, one day it was 54F and the other 45F. Both times the fan kicks in sometime in the morning and the temp is correct by noon. We had a repair guy out and if course all was running well when he checked it. After the second time he suggested replacing the "board". He seems uncertain that this will fix the problem and is offering no other options. What should we do?
Hi,I am a bit confused because the model number listed seems to come up as a dishwasher and not a refrigerator...So I cannot look to see exactly what you have for a defrost control on the particular refrigerator...But the bottom lin ...

2001 GE side by side refrigerator model TGX26KRDA WW
Beginning about a month ago the refrigerator temperature rose to 60 deg. F. Freezer remained well below 0 deg F. Checked baffle which was open and checked evaporator coils which were not iced.
Cleaned condenser coils which were only mildly dusty. Reset freezer control to 5 (mid range of temp) and refrigerator to 9 (coldest). In about 24 hours temp in fridge side was 40 deg F. Now same problem with 60 deg Fridge. Checked baffle betwee
I have a Kenmore 363.58897894 Side by side.
Fresh food side temp is around 60 degrees. Freezer will still freeze to low to mid teens. Although I am a novice at refrig repair, it seems that there must be a air duct from the freezer side to the fresh food side probably controlled by the temp control which may be the problem. I've checked to make sure all the little ducts are clean and unobstructed. I've vaccumed the lint from under and around the coils as well as behind the unit. Any guidance wou

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmoore side by side cold shot fridge.It is only cooling on bottom of fridge and freezer.I have already cleaned evap coils, there is frost forming in back of freezer.I defrosted that as well last night and really noimprovement. I checked compresser and is hot but able to touch.Fan running as well at bottom.Any chance that it is pressure switch at top of fridge.Also fridge would never allow to adjust temp lower than #3-#4
No it is not pressure switch. You are having a defrost problem. The frost on the back walls is also all through the coils behind the wall you defrosted. You have to remove the panel and defrost all of the ice from the coils so that air can flow throu ...

My 5 year GE Side by side freezer works fine but the frig runs too cold. Had a service guy look at it and he said replace the main control panel. I did this ($240) and same problem. I can increase the freezer side temp and then the frig is okay but then the ice maker gets real slow (freezer temp set at 8). When freezer side is set to 2 the frig drops to 31 even though the temp guage is set at 38.

On a side by side unit, the freezer actually cools the refrigerator side of the unit by the use of a "damper" door or switch. Check this between both doors for any ice blockage or damage and go from there. You might need to contact a professional to ...
We have a GE Profile PS123SGPA PS side by side. It has developed a very frustrating fault on the fridge side, which our serviceman could not find the reason for, due to its very intermittent nature. The unit works very well (normally!) and keeps to recommended temps for both fridge and freezer - the ice maker also works well. It is installed properly by the agent and has a voltage control/circuit breaker in-line.
Once in a while, however, the fridge side goes haywire and (although the door has

I have a Samsung RS2555SW Side by Side Fridge. Recently the cooling side quit cooling and i had the defrost heating unit replaced which had iced up and quit working. That solved a problem for a while. Then the cooling side started freezing everything even though the temp indicated 4 degrees. The thermostat or temp sensor was checked and appeared to be working ok. It stopped freezing and worked ok for a week or so and then started freezing everything again. It stopped freezing things but now app

Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator water dispenser is not working. The ice maker is hardly making any ice but there are a few cubes that have come out. I defrosted the refrigerator last night as I thought the line was frozen but still not working. The temp in the freezer and refrig sides are adequate. The water seems to be the problem. I checked the filter, checked to make sure the line wasn't kinked at bottom left or that the "dispense lock" was pressed. Water still won't come out. Any advice is

I have a GSS25WST side by side refrigerator/freezer. I have the freezer temp set to 0 and the refrigerator temp set to 37 but according to the "current temperature" reading on the front panel it says the freezer is -9 while the refrigerator is 37. The whole thing seems to be running all the time as well. This refrigerator is just over a year old now... A few things have happened recently; the door light switch on the refrigerator is broken so I just took out the light bulbs on that side until th

Hi, I have an Amana SBDE522V side by side with ice maker. Since I replaced a shorted heater defrost element some months ago the ice maker stopped making ice and the fridge temp alarm regularly goes off. I've finally got sick of it and checked the book and it says the ice maker wont go if the freezer is not cold enough. So I've checked that and the freezer is only running about -5, my 20 year old Kelvinator runs better than -25 so I guess thats a good starting point. Any ideas what to check next?

We have the Side by side refridgerator/freezer from Kitchenaid. The fridge is hoovering at 34 degrees.. the freezer is not going below 16 even though we have reset the temp to 4 degrees. the freezer is now always running..
Does anyone know what the problem may be? The "over temp" lite keeps flashing as well.
It can be because of many reasons but The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, ...
I have a Frigidaire PLHS69EGSS stainless stell side by side refrigerator that I just bought used. The man I bought it from said that the freezer would only cool to 18 degrees (not cold enough he said) but the refrigerator would cool to 34 degrees (cold enough). Well we bought it and found that neither one gets very cold despite setting them on low temps (set fridge 34 and freezer 0). The sometimes read low temps that are close to what we set (although it never feels really super cold) but most o

My fridge is a Whirlpool side by side about 25 years old, model # ED19TKXMNR0. Got up one morning, opened the door and the interior was soaked with condensation. I could hear it running but not as loud as usual, like it was idleing. Checked the freezer temp, 40 degrees. Looked like it was not running for 3 or 4 hours. I panicked ! Twisted the temp control in the freezer back and forth a few times, nothing. About 10 minutes went by and it started to run and cooled down to normal. This was last Su

Hi I have GSS23QGTA WW GE side-by-side refregerator. The temp inside freezer side as well as on the refregerator side does not hold down to normal cold at all. When I opened freezer I saw ice frost on the back wall about 1/2 " thick. I saw some of the postings and I bought the motherboard WR55X10942 to replace the potential faulty one. I was wondering if that would fix it. Also, the 8 pin connector has actually 6 wires connected but I saw one black with white stripe wire loose and seem like com

KitchenAid side by side refrigerator, KSSP48QKS, not cooling on the fridge side, is staying @ 58degrees. Of course the over temp alarm is going off every hour. Freezer & ice maker are working fine. There seems to be no air coming through the side top vent from freezer into fridge. I found a tech sheet on the Whirlpool website that says in the trouble shooting area: "Refrigerator compartment too warm".......
*Blocked air flow.
-Check air door outlet and air returns for blockage
My ge side-by-side refrigerator/freezer isn't cooling. It started on the refrigerator side and now both sides are losing cooling capability. There is ice build up on the lower back wall of the freezer. Sounds like something with the defrost from what I've read. One guy told me I needed an Ohm meter to check the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater for continuity and whichever one reads "open" needs replaced. Does this sound right?
Yes that is right. Turn the Refrigerator off/ unplug it. Remove the rear panel of the freezer and thaw out the coils with a fan or hair dryer. \015\012\015\012The most common problem is with the defrost heater. Using an ohm meter check ...
