My GE side by side fridge model GSH22JFTA BB stopped making ice a few months ago. Water is fine. Haven't had a chance to get it fixed, but now both freezer and fridge side do not get cold even on highest setting. This started about a week ago.

Three weeks ago my refrigerator went out including the freezer. We pulled it out, used our wet/vac and cleaned it out then turned the reset button and it worked fine. A week later it went out again and we reset it and it worked fine for another week. This past Sunday it went out again after resetting, it worked for a few hours and then it stopped and it has not worked at all. I believed it is over 15 years old

There is no real way to determine if it has an auto defrost mode feature or not by just looking at the manual.

Installed a new icemaker approx 36 hours ago and still no ice. I have water in the door. I took water line loose at back of freezer and can't get water to flow thru it. The unit is a whirpool side by side with model number ED0GTQXMQ00. I had the old ice maker out of freezer for about 1 week while waiting for parts. Everything worked until I broke the old one messing with it. Could a solenoid have went bad controling the ice maker water flow?

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS6R5ESBF that is 3 years old but did not get installed until 4 months ago. The freezer appears to be working fine but the refrigerator side is getting warmer by the day. It seems like the air coming through the vent from the freezer to the refrigerator is not very cold or forceful. The air flow on the freezer side appears to be OK. Any suggestions?


Could be that the freezer is icing up stopping the air flow coming up into your fridge, try switching it off for at least 12 hours with the freezer door open. ... Frigidaire Refrigerators

GE TFX20SA back wall of freezer freezing (snow like more than ice) we took the fridge apart about a month ago and blew out and let everything behind the back panel melt as it was frozen solid, it then worked fine for about 3 weeks then started freezing on the back freezer wall again, stuff is not staying as cold also.

Mine is an older (20 year old) built-in sub-zero with freezer on the bottom and fridge on the top and only one temperature control (in the fridge portion). The refrigerator is working fine, but the freezer has all of a sudden started holding the same temperature as the fridge. I can hear that the compressor still runs. I know these are expensive to fix because I invested in a new compressor about 7 years ago. Any ideas? Should I just buy a new one?


You might have a dirty condenser or possibly a freon leak. Check to see if the fans are running and lights are going off when the doors are closed. You didn't mention what the model number is, that might help. ... Sub-Zero Refrigerators

My 5 year old GE GSH22JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator recently stopped cooling. I noticed a build up of frost on the freezer, so unplugged the fridge and let the ice melt away.

What could be causing this problem and is it something I can fix on my own? The fridge just w

My 8.5 year old MZD2766GEQ has been working fine now for a couple of weeks, but I'm still not confident that my problems are over. Two weeks ago I experienced my fridge side getting 'not so cold' and made several inquiries to find a resolution.

The next day I plugged it back in and by dinner time, t

My MFD2560HES side by side with bottom freezer is not cooling any more. I purchased a new compressor relay/capacitor and replaced it today. It worked just fine for about 3 hours and then it started doing the same thing again. The compressor makes a humming noise about every 3 minutes or so and it feels very warm/hot to the touch. I am finally giving up with this thing. It is about 5 years old and has worked flawlessly until about a week ago. Has the compressor gone bad?

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.
