My GE Refrigerator the temperature on the refrigerator side is so high even though i set it to minimum that it frosts all my vegetables. what could be the problem?
Answer Raj, We can't find any information with the model number you supplied. In general, your issue sounds like an air flow problem. You'll want to check and make sure there are no articles hanging over the sides of the shelves or against the back wall, this will trap the air in the lower area and cause things to freeze in the lower bins. Check the upper shelf, make sure there's nothing blocking the control panel grille, this could also re direct the air down the back of the compartment, and check any air control levers and reset to mid range. If you need more assistance, please repost your request with a proper and complete model number. Thanks
The temp in both freezer side and refrigerator side raise above acceptable limits. Then they start working again. This is unpredictable as to when it happens or how long it lasts. Any suggestions?
It sounds like the defrost timer may be sticking when coming out of the defrost cycle. The defrost should last approximately 30 minutes and may be lasting longer. You would want to check to see if the fans are running at the time the unit stop cooling and if they are not then behind the light shield in the refrigerator is where the timer is. Turn the timer and see if the unit comes on. If it does then replace the timer.
My refrigerator is showing to be between 55 and 60 degress and freezer is showing 33 degress. Could this be the cause of a defrost thermostat gone bad?
Answer Hello Dean. You need to check for a solid frost pattern on the coils inside the freezer. If the coils are not covered completely in the freezer with frost, this is a sign of a sealed system issue and you will need an HVAC tech to repair the unit. Usually with a defrost issue, the freezer works fine, but the fresh food does not. In your case, both are not working. This can be from a sealed system issue, or a fan motor not running in the unit.
