We purchased a GE Profile bottom freezer from a liquidator shop. After about 5 days of use the fridge portion began to warm and the freezer went into deep freeze. The control panel was replaced, by the store, but the problem returned. Then they replaced the damper tower, this also did not fix the problem. Then they replaced a sensor inside the refrigerator. Still no fix. Then they took it back to the store, "worked on it" and returned it to us a week later. It worked well for about anothe

I have a 22 yr old top freezer fridge. I took it to my cabin last year when I bought a new one for the house. However, it does not work-get cold at all. We don't leave the electricity on when we are not at the cabin. Could this be the problem? When we get to the cabin we plug it in. But the 2 days we are in the cabin it will not get cold.

I have a 8 year old Refrigerator Freezer Model number ARB9059CS. It has been making a buzzing sound. I had a repair man who replaced the relay. We were away for a few days and came home to more buzzing and the freezer is completely defrosted. The defrost thermostat was replaced in 2008. Now the repair man thinks we need a new compressor. Does this sound correct? Does it pay to fix this fridge? The repair man said it would probably be about $500.00. Why so many problems with this model?

I have a Kitchenaid refrigerator that the coil in the back of the freezer will freeze up and not make ice or keep things cold. Had this problem a few years ago,after a power outage and a service tech checked it out saying because we didn't let it defrost all the way that it would cause the defrost control to fail. Anyway I replace the control two weeks ago and the fridge works fine for about 2 or3 days before it start doing this all over again. Can some one give me a hint of what to do to fix

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?

Our 2-year old Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is not cooling. Cooling power seems to have been reduced over a couple of days as it didn't die suddenly. Initially the compressor wasn't going. A repairman replaced the relay which didn't fix the problem. Another repairman drained the system to remove 'blockages'. This also didn't fix the problem. We had the compressor replaced. This worked for 2-3 days, but it seemed to be running a lot. Then, it stopped cooling again. The repairman came and r

Two days ago, a technician replaced the motor in our Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator (model #25351232102), which was necessary because the middle strip in front of the fridge stayed extremely hot to the touch. After he replaced the motor, the fridge worked fine for two days and the strip was no longer hot. And then without warning, the freezer side took a nosedive. It stopped working and melted all of our food. The fresh food side is lukewarm. I am certain that the technician caused the p

Cold air is not circulating to the fridge section in my side-side ARS9167AW amana. Also lower freezer section is very cold. This problem happened 2 years ago and a fridge repair service fixed it for $200. All they did was replace a small simple little fan. I am almost certain its the same exact problem and I need to replace this fan again. Can someone tell me where this fan is located (that pushes air to the fridge from the freezer)and what type of fan it is and/or the part number. Thanks, --E

My Hotpoint CTX-18E refrigerator has been doing some weird things and I don't know how to fix it (or if it can be fixed). It alternately melts everything in the freezer, then freezes everything hard as a rock. The ice maker has also more or less stopped working, cranking out maybe ten ice cubes in three days...and the main fridge section obviously isn't getting cold enough because my dairy products keep spoiling in a matter of days. Can anyone diagnose the issue(s)? Thanks!!
