Amana refrigerator, Model SZD23VW purchased 10/02/1999 stopped cooling. The contents have been moved to another refrigerator. It turns out that the beverage chiller control had been inadvertently turned to the coolest setting. We turned the control back to the middle position, the refrigerator started to work again. Without my knowledge, the beverage chiller control was turned to the warmest setting and the refrigerator stopped cooling again. I have cleaned all the coils and the entire ref
Leaky Refrigerator My GE 'Profile' refrigerator, side by side, is +8 years old. When I have the icemaker in the freezer section (upper left side) on, there is a leak on the right rear corner onto the floor. If I turn off the icemaker by lifting the 'stop' arm, the leak stops. It looks like there is a leak somewhere where a solenoid would be located that allows water from the feed line into the refrigerator. I've taken off the cardboard plate that is on the back of the refrigerator. Accessibiity

I have a GE model GSS25YGNA side-by-side refrigerator freezer that has stopped cooling. The freezer stopped cooling first, then a few hours later the refridgerator stopped cooling. The compressor appears to be running, the refrigerant tank is also warm to the touch. I found a solder joint that was bad on the main control board on one of the main power relays that has a N.O. and N.C. contact. I re-soldered the post to the circuit board, but it still is not cooling.
GE- GTS22WC refrigerator. Both the refrigerator and the freezer stopped cooling, We put it in the basement thinking it was no good, and after a few months we plugged it back in and it worked ok for about two weeks, then stopped again. Just plugged it in again and it is cooling again! The fans all work fine on it, lights are on,etc. Seems ok once again, but I know it will stop again if we can not figure out what the problem is.
The auto defrost heat element is not working. When the ice buildup clogs the airflow the unit stops cooling. Once you unplug it and give it a chance to melt it works again. You need to have the defrost unit replaced. ...

On Monday evening I thought someone was setting off firecrackers. Got up and into the kitchen and realized it was the refrigerator. Opened both freezer and refrigerator doors, still cold but a soda bottle in the refrigerator was swaying. Then it (the noise/shaking) stopped. Next day and still on Saturday the motor sounds normal and everything is cold. Tonight (Saturday) the motor began making banging/thump, thump noises. This lasted for a few minutes then stopped. Any idea what is going o

Now the refrigerator is not cooling. I took the board out from the back and took it to a parts place but they said it looks OK. Whst should I do next?
I have the exact same problem. It stopped dispensing water and ice, then it started to make a clicking noise and now the freezer and the refrigerator don't work. It's interesting that this failure occurred 3 months after the 5 year ...
I have a GE side by side refrigerator, model GSL85JFPHBS. It sstopped working altogether last month. first the refrigerator stopped working, two day later the freezer part stopped working. I had someone come out and look at it. He cleaned the back part of the unit, and it worked GREAT for 2 weeks. Now the bottom part of the refrigerator is working and is cold, the top part is warm. I checked to make sure the coils were still clean. Any ideas?
I think you meant you have a GSL25JFPHBS (not 85).\015\012It sounds like you have a defrost problem. If your refrig. was off for some time, like a day or more, or it was manually defrosted, it would work for about 2 weeks before the problem wo ...
Refrigerator has that sound button which starts beeping if door is open too long. But problem with my refrigerator is that it beeps even when door is closed and it does not stop if I don't press that button for stopping. It is very annoying, it happens often in the middle of the night and it is very loud, so I have to get up and stop it.
I am not sure what is exact model that I have and don't know where to find it, on door and inside it just says Miele. It has butom freezer and on top refrigera

Whirlpool refrigerator side by side model ED5FHGXKT02. The ice maker dispenser on the front of refrigerator stop working. The water dispenser still works only the ice side stopped. Any idea what needs to be replace to get it working again? And how do you take off the front of the dispenser on the front of the refrigerator? Thank you Lynn
Icemaker stopped producing ice. Refrigerator runs and runs and doesn't shut off. What was in icemaker tray has now frozen solid. I shut off refrigerator 5 minutes ago because it didn't stop itself as usual. I will turn it back on soon. What should I do about icemaker and that refrigerator kept running for longer time than usual?
Temp control sensor is probably bad, consistantly calling for cold air. ...

My Hotpoint refrigerator motor tries to start up, then stops, starts, stops, (several times) then blows the reset button on the kitchen electrical circuit (so I have to reset the stove clock several times a day). The previous owner had a cat and I cleaned a lot of hair and dust from the motor area, but it is still getting worse. I had an electrician and an appliance guy out, the appliance guy said he never heard of a refrigerator doing that. I don't know how old the fridge is and I am about to

My refrigerator totally stopped working. Everything in the freezer defrosted and all of the food on the refrigerator side got warm. As I was cleaning out the unit it suddenly started working again and has worked for about a month. Now it has again suddenly stopped working. The unit has power to it - the light still comes on but I don't know if anything else is working.
Is there a schematic that we can look at or do you have suggestions?
With this issue involving the compressor not running at all, till powered off and defrosting, I'm pretty confident (As close as I'm going to get without looking at the system) that any repairs needed will require a certified appliance repairman. \01 ...
ARS2667AW Amana Side by Side refrigerator Freezer. New in July of 2000. Recently stopped working, had a repairman out who speculated that it was the cold controls or the defrost control unit. After going thru a few days of my knocking on the cold controls....or turning the red dial on the defrost control unit......He replaced the cold controls. It worked for a few days consistently, but then.... it will work and be chilling on the refrigerator side at 34 degrees, then stop and get up to 50 degre
I have a KitchenAid bottom-mount refrigerator, model KBRA20EMSS, (approximately 4-5 years old). Last week it began making a humming noise for approximately 10 seconds and stop. After a few days the refrigerator stopped cooling. We turned off the machine. Repairman came (approved) and could find nothing wrong. Changed water filter while here and turned it on. It was cooling again. A day later the noise returned. Repairman came back, and again could find nothing wrong.
When it's making the noise will be a good time to locate the source. There's not many possible sources. The compressor is located underneath, accessed from behind the fridge at the bottom. You'll have to remove the cardboard cover. It's roundis ...
My refrigerator and freezer are not cooling. I was having problems with the ice maker making too much ice, so I turned off the ice maker a few days ago. I turned the ice maker back on when it got too low and then the refrigerator stopped cooling and the freezer stopped freezing. It is still making ice, but it is melting.
I knew you had a defrost issue, please review me if you would like ...

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer is acting like refrigerator it was making noise before it stopped working. Could it be the filter?
The filter has nothing whatsoever to do with the cooling. it is only used to clean out impurities in the water. You arent very clear as to what you are experiencing, or what the noise was. So i would check to see if you have airflow coming into the r ...

I have a Maytage bottom drawer, refrigerator freezer. The bottom drawer freezer got noticeably warmer the day before yesterday. Having children, we chewed them out for probably leaving the drawer partially open. Now the freezer has stopped cooling, blowing luke warm/cool air. As expected, the upper refrigerator has stopped cooling as well since it gets its cooling air from the freezer. Was able to predict this after reading some of your posts fortunately saving most of the food. After apol

GE Arctica refrigerator is making a noise like someone is knocking at the door for about 5 seconds, then it stops. I have narrowed it down to a fan at the bottom of one of the refrigerator doors on the inside....when the fan stops....this noise starts as the fan blades slow down. it doesnt appear stuck on anything either or being blocked
