GE Refrigerator Model No. TFX26KRDAWW on the freezer side will cool to 0 F and then warn to 50 F and stop cooling. The Defrost Timer and Defrost Thermostat have been replaced. When the compressor is running my AMP reading is about 1.5 and when the compressor is not running the reading exceed 15 AMPS.
Sounds like the compressor is going out. Most refrigerators will draw less then 11.2 amps. ...

GE side by side: Model GSL25JFPABS Does not defrost. Circulating fan is working. Heating element works when 110v is apllied to it. Points in thermostat are closed (freezer warm). Installed new circuit board Door gaskets sealing well. There is no way (I presume) to force the circuit board to bring on the defrost circuit. (unlike older timer motor). Without a wiring diagram I cannot check all components. My assumption is that the board cuts power to the compressor and then powers
Hi. My fridge stopped running altogether. Nothing is going on either side. No fans are going, inside or outside, compressor isn't hot. Thought might be in 'permanent' defrost mode...(?) When I turn the control knob to the fridge side all the way down, a motor seems to open/close a trap door at the far left corner, I assume controlling the amount of cold air that would come in from the freezer side...if the freezer worked... What would you think is going on, can I repair it myself, and/or i
Hi Sylvia - If your fridge is over 5 years old, replace it. The new ones are so much more inexpensive to operate that they pay for themselves in 2-3 years. Do not put 500 into a repair...........not worth it I assure you. Joe ...

i think, after reading a bit...it is the overload, relay, or capacitor ?? looks like a litle black box on the side of the compressor but have no clue how to get it off and change.... seems easy...but won't come off? what am I not doing? also how do I check the amps on the c
Hi, sounds as though the compressor is going off on its overload, which would be telling us that you have a internal problem in the compressor. The little black box you see on the compressor is the electrical cover for the klixon over load and the st ...

Everything works on fridge, compressor running fans, timer. The problem is it has to run constantly except for defrost cycle and freezer only gets to 25 degrees. Fridge side is about 40 but both thermostats are tuned up all the way. Recharge? I read this is uncommon but can/
,t think of any other problem.
I had this fixed and it was the Defrost heater and the part that makes it come on he had to splice it in so I am glad I didn't try to do it my self parts and labor my bill was $168.00 ...

normally........this also happe
Hi!!\015\012\015\012Make sure the condenser coil in front of the fan is clean. Also, make sure the fan is working strong, not just barely moving. The whole area can be cleaned using a vacuum with a brush adapter. When doing the condenser coil ...

GE GSS20IBMB fridge, a side by side. I opened it up (took off the cover in the freezer compartment) to see, and the coils are completely iced over. This happened before. Then, I defrosted it, and it lasted a couple of months before freezing over again. Is this most likely due to the defrost heater coils not working? The microprocessor? The compressor seems to work just fine; when it's defrosted no problem. Where can I get parts for this thing?
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the ...

I have a GS6NBEXRB02 side by side refrigerator. The problem is the ice dispenser is not working. Water dispenser works just fine.
I read one solution was to remove the motor and let it dry. I will try that. But first, how do I remove the motor. Try taking it apart but the shaft is too long to remove it. Can you help.
Whirlpool GS6SHAXLS Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE side by side refrigerator GSS22JEMB BB. The defroster heater was replaced. How do I know if the defroster is working properly. Can I manually manually make the fridge go into defrost mode? Also when I open the door, is the motor on the freezer side suppose to stop running? There is a valve on the top of the fridge, Is there suppose to be a stream of cold air comming out? It is currently having very little flow.
To go into defrost manually : Remove the 10"X13" panel from the back of the fridge . You will see a plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Unplug this plug ( UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR FIRST ) . The blue receptical will look like this wire#1,wire#2, spa ...

I have a 2001 Whirlpool Imperial Series side by side refrigerator. Yesterday white smoke was coming from out of the bottom left side of the refrigerator. We can not see anything though on inspection. However, there seem to be some burn marks on the relay switch attached to the compressor. We turned it back on and seemed to be working fine. This morning, everything was defrosting in our freezer and now the fan isn't working.

Kenmore refrigerator Sold my Kenmore refrigerator and they are saying it does not work at all. First they told me the refrigerator works and not the freezer. it is a side by side model 41514100 manufacturer date of 07/02 full load 6.5 amp. They are saying it is the compressor. They cleaned it underneath. It worked fine when it left my house. Any suggestions on what it might be other than that?
I have a kenmore side by side refridgerator, model number 106.9535511. It is in great shape and was working great until yesterday. It quit working completely. The lights still work but the fans and compressor do not turn on at all. I know that it has an adaptive defrost control, cut I do not know what is causing it to not run. Should I start with the thermostat?

I purchased a used GE Profile TFX22PP Side by Siide which was working perfectly. I transported the item to my home, cleaned it, vaccummed the borrom coil and plugged it in. The unit has been running for about 14 hours and it is not cooling. The fan comes on, I believe I hear the compressor kick-in but the thermometer I placed into the Fridge (1 in the freezer side and one in the main side) are reading 78 Degrees. Lights come on, Fan is running and I believe the compressor also. What now?

I have a GE side by side model #GSH25JSTA SS. It is 4 years old. The Water disenser stopped working about 6 months ago. We have replaced water filter and that did not seem to work. When we press the dispenser it sounds as though the water should be coming out but nothing actually does. I have read about water lines being frozen but I am not sure how to go about defrosting it without using a bunch of electricity by keeping the door open for hours. Advice?

Im looking for the automatic defrost control location for a Frigidaire. Model # FRS6HR5HSB6, Serial # 4A80118247. My refrigerator compressor has stopped working for about 14 hours. I think it is stuck in the defrost cycle, I just want to advance it, so it will start working again. Until the service repairman can get here.
If your compressor is the only motor not working, meaning you also hear no other noises at all, advancing the defrost control out of defrost MAY solve your problem. However, if you do hear other motors running, then your refrigerator is not stuck in ...

I have a Kenmore side-by-side model number 106.53669300 with an automatic ice maker. The problem is the ice maker is not working. I have 120 volts at the receptacle, but only 34 volts at the harness for the ice maker. I am confused because I can jumper out the motor and make the bail turn. The resistance heater also seems to be working. Once it has been jumpered, it ejects the ice, then fills and ejects the ice after it is frozen once more. It fills and freezes again but doesn't even try to ejec
HI. These symptoms seem to point to a failed thermostat. During this type of failure, the ice maker will not be able to regulate the freezing of the ice. It may not be able to preform a complete cycle, as well. The successful jumping indicates that t ...
I assume that the frig went into an apparent defrost mode and all refrigeration ended. There is a humming (solenoid type) in the small box on the side of the compressor on an intermittant basis (sounds like the compressor is working properly when the noise stops but then it starts again in a few minutes)
This solenoid sound is a new sound which started yesterday Jul 23 and in the 12-15 hour period all of the frozen foods defrosted.
I also noted that the pull out door is leaking a profuse
The noise you hear is the thermal overload ,as the motor cools it will click on ,then as the motor is worn out it draws current which causes the motor to get hot throwing the thermal switch to off again ,best advice is either a new motor or just scr ...
