We have a gss22jf side by side refrigerator that has developed frost on the back panel of the freezer and is not getting cold enough to freeze food. We unplugged last night and let manually defrost. We also vaccuumed compressor which was filled with dog hair and dirt. Do you think we have fixed the problem or should we be checking the defrost timer? Can anyone help share where the defrost timer is located on this model?

All the food in the freezer defrosted and the refrigerator side is not cold enough. I have vaccuumed the coils and the fan on the back side is running. The compressor comes on for about 10 seconds then shuts off again. I think it is the compressor! It is the black round thing in back.
The compressor isnt coming on for about 10 seconds, its attempting to start for about 10 seconds. Since you will not have the proper device to jump start the compressor, your only choice to determine if its the compressor itself, or the start device ...
I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to. The freezer was over packed at one time and I think that had something to do with it. How do I reset the mechanism that will let this defrost again and get it back on it timer
You can first try shutting it down for a day and let it defrost,but i believe if you remove the rear panel inside the freezer and it has a coating of frost and ice on it now,then your going to find that the defrost thermostat or defrost heater has go ...
Frosting up My whirlpool side by side is developing frost and frezing up the evaporator, i have cyled the defrost timer and it remained frosted and the compressor came back on after 40 minutes defrosted evaporator with hair dryer, ran well then frosted agian in 3 days ithink the heater is bad i would like to know where the heater is located where is the heater located. Thanks
It is behind the rear cover in the freezer section, you need to remove the freezer shelfs and bins, you will see the screws on the back panel (remove frost from panel) remove the screws and the heater will be a black element that is mounted on the ...

TFS22PP - GE side by side - running warm. Freezer not freezing and fridge side not cool. I'm not in the freezer too much but noticed the fridge getting a little warmer. Then I noticed some frozens were a bit soft around the edges 2 days after I had filled it (of course). Following some of the other solutions posted, I checked the back freeze wall - frosty. Pulling the back wall panel off - one big block of ice - top to bottom. Cleared it with a hair dryer and figured to drop in a defrost therm (

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 have a GE GSS25WGMD BB Fridge. I have already replaced the Defrost Heater and Freezer Thermostat. The lower sections of the fridge and freezer are very cold. The ice maker will not produce ice and the upper sections are both are still warm. The compressor is obviously running and creating cold but it is not filling both sides appropriately.
First, when the refrigerator is running, open the freezer door and hold in the light switch so the freezer light goes out. You should be able to hear the freezer (evaporator) fan running. If it is running, then you most likely have a problem with t ...

I have a Jenn-Air side by side model JCB2388GR about 1 month ago the freezer coils and fan were iced up and both sides (refrigerator and freezer were not cooling/freezing properly) I defrosted the freezer and everything was fine. I did notice a clicking and buzzing sound coming from the frige side (near the temperature controls) and now it looks like the coils are iced up again on the freezer side which is still working but the frige side is not cooling. I think it may the defrost timer.

Side by Side GE Profile 21.6 cf refrid- temps good on both sides but heavy frost building on back wall of freezer- and it is running all the time. When you attempt to adjust the temp via the controls, freezer will not go off until set to zero. I think this may be due to the frost build up. Should I replace the defrost control (WR09X0489), thermostat (WR50X0122) and heater (parts list has Defrost Heater & Harness (WR51X10031) and Defrost Heater & Bracket (WR51X10032) what's the difference between

I have a knocking (5 quick, loud knocks) sound intermittently on my refrigerator. I think it is when the compressor starts up (not 100% sure). I opened the back panel and everything looked normal except there is some black, sticky tar-like substance on the side of the compressor, as if something is melting. It is on the outside of the compressor casing, but not dripping onto the floor panel. The fridge is a 4.5 year old Samsung side-by-side. The noise is loud enough to wake us up at night. Do we
Chances are that black tar like substance you are seeing if from the capacitor. This is were I would start, as a capacitor is not all that expensive. Make sure it is the same rating as the current capacitor, and be aware that capacitors store elect ...

the motor to (i think) the compressor, then i reconnected and the
motor (and fan) and the compressor kicked on and began to run
normally........this also happe
