Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My coils have frozen up and the fan shut off on my ge profile fridge with the freezer on the bottom. we defrosted it with a hair dryer and the fan kicked back on - why would this happen?


Answers :

I would check the coils and make sure they are not too dirty with cobwebs and dust. If they are clean, make sure you do not have the unit enclosed too much where it cannot "breath", it needs to have ample air flow to vent the heat that is removed from the inside. If this is not your problem, you may need a service man to check the level of the refrigerant. \015\012

Jenn-Aire Refrigerator Model JCD2389GEW Last spring, it would not defrost and of course the refrigerator was warm. I replaced the Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC)and that solved the problem. This week, the defrost problem returned. I defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and reassembled and turned the freezer and slid the freezer and refrigerator controls back to the middle. The compressor did not turn back on. (It was working before I defrosted.)I pulled the ADC to check for trouble cod

It appears that there is a problem with the auto defrost in my GE GSS22JEMA CC, it will be fine for a month and the fridge doesn't get real cold, the ice maker doesn't make ice and the freezer doesn't freeze. We take off the white cover inside the freezer and the coils are covered with ice/frost. We take a hair dryer to it and then turn the freezer back on and it works perfectly for about another month or until the frost builds back up.

When the freezer defrosts it partially melts the ice cubes, the ice builds up between the inside back and the outside back. This ice gets hit by the fan making an awful grinding noise water leaks out of the bottom of freezer onto the floor. and the bottom of the inside of the freezer fills up with ice. This happens at least once a week and we have to take it all apart and clean out all the ice and start over,and hope we are home to hear it grinding the next time and shut it off. It is only 1 yr

Make sure that when you have removed the ice you also cleaned out the unit especially the freezer and the drains. Clogging due to dirt is sometimes the cause of coils to freeze up.
