You need to check and see if the plastic flapper on the damper vent door has frozen open and broken,you need to remove all the air flow parts to check this physically,you can run the diagnostics,and hear the damper motor run,but if the door is broken and stuck open you cant see this without removing the plastic grill covers and all the plastic parts from in front of it,even where the light bulbs are located in the roof of the refrigerator,if this isnt it,then you may have bad thermistors in the side of the refrigerators walls,the diagnostics will tell you this in a pass/fail test,g.e. has had a problem with these damper doors though in the past
Please get your thermostat switch checked up. The way you have described your problem is a clear cut case of it. It is stuck on one point. Even though you are trying to set new temperature it does not respond. Call a technician and check it up. Better solution is to get it changed with a new one.

RS2534WW There are several things that happened within a couple of days and it is making it hard to figure out what the problem is. First the temperature on the freezer side started to blink as if someone had left the door opened. I made sure it was shut and waited a day or so for it to stop but it didn't. Then the ice maker stopped producing ice but I can still get water out of the water side so I don't think the line is clogged. The temperature of the freezer stays around 58 degrees. On occasi

My samsung refrigerator model RB1855SL is experiencing a temperature sensor issue. The freezer target temp is set to zero degrees and the refrigerator to 38. The unit cools itself down to the target temperatures however as the temperature inside the unit increases the temperature sensors do not register that the temperature is rising. The externally facing temperature gauges still read 0 and 38. I flip the breaker and then the digital thermostat changes to the refrigerator being at 51 and the fr

I have a GE Model # GFSF6KEXBBB French door top refrigerator and bottom freezer. The digital temperature display is not working properly and reads 88 degrees for both top and bottom. When I press the buttons nothing happens. I put a thermometer in both sides and the temps are cooling at 40 and 0 degrees where I last programmed them. I unplugged the unit and plugged it back in and the same thing happened. Is there any quick fixes or ideas for me?

I bought a second hand whirlpool refregerator model wrx42rwh6. First, it was freezing everything in the fridge section such as strawberries, tomatoes, rice etc. so I turned the temprature nob towards less cold side but I did not check what was going on the freezer section. But now freezer is just freezing ice but not anything else. that means temprature is going upto 0 degrees but not below that. Could you please suggest some solution. Thanks.
We have a GE Profile side by side Model PSF26PG and lately the temperature has started fluctuating up and down from -10 degrees to 0 degrees in the freezer side. This causes the ice in our icemaker to melt and run down the back of the freezer and refreeze. The refrigerator part also fluctuates the same way. Ice has accumulated on the inside wall of the fridge between the freezer and fridge. We have pulled fridge away from the wall and cleaned the fins on the back. Do you have any other sugge

I have a frigidaire side by side refridgerator / freezer.
Currently my freezer is about 34 to 40 degrees. The dividing wall between the ref. and freezer is warm to hot depending on when you check it. last week everything in the freezer thawed, i removed all the items, cleaned the condensor coils w/ a vacuum. It worked great for 2 to 3 days then it happened again. Now it's back down to 0 degrees but the middle wall is still really warm.

I currently have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator. It is a side-by-side. The numbers on the door are #PSS25NGN, PSS27NGN, PSS29NGN, PSS25SGN and PSS27SGN.
The freezer will not re-set to "0" and is currently reading "21".
The refrigerator will not re-set to "37" and is currently reading "47".
I have checked the freezer bins and shelves to be sure they are not obstructing the freezer door from closing and sealing completely. It still will not re-set.
Can you help?

Hello, my side by side built-in refrigerator does not work.
the temperature raised to 50-55 degree, we make sure the temperature was reset and it still does not cool. I tried to shut the main switch on top of the frig behind the grill and reset, and still it does not work. I removed grocery and cleaned the areas around the vent to no avail. It has been like that for three days. The freezer is working fine.

I purchased an Amana side-by-side refrigerator in March 1999. About 2 weeks ago I noticed the freezer was not as cold as it used to be. I checked the temperature and found the freezer to be between 17 and 20 degrees F. where it was always 0 F. before. The compressor cycles normally, but does stay on most of the time. The refrigerator is running about 40, which is normal. A repairman told me that the lines feeding the compressor have become clogged by the fluid coagulating in the compresso

Our GE side-by-side refrigerator (model GS225) is not cooling. Freezer is at 55 degrees and the refrigerator is at 70 degrees. The fan condensor in the back was dirty so we cleaned it. Could that be the problem? We tried moving the temperature control cooler, but it is still not cooling. The fan is running. the refrigerator is about nine years old. Please give us your diagnostic ideas.
Check the compressor relay. All fans should be running when the compressor is except during post dwell. In post dwell the compressor and fan con on but the inside ones do not come on for a specified time. ...
My GE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model:PFS22SBSSS The Refrigerator is not cooling, however the Freezer is mantianing proper temprature at 0 degrees. The temp on the fridge is reading 60 degrees on the inside digital display. I also noticed ever since the fridge portion stopped cooling there's no heat disapating from the top or sides of the fridge like it used to do. Has anyone see this problem?
Your problem is almost surely caused by the failure of the fan that should circulate cooled air from the freezer section to the refrigerator.\012If you check for vents, normally in the rear of the fridge, and hold your fingers in front of them while ...

We have a Sub-Zero 532. A couple of days ago, we discovered that the refrigerator side was only reading 60 degrees. I deiced the condenser coil behind the back panel, checked the compressor and fan for the ref side and they are both running. I also tested the 'cold control' and it would turn on and off. However, the temperature will still only get down to around 50 degrees. Could it need a recharge? What kind of freon does this model need?
The Sub-Zero 532 model uses two different refrigerants (R12 or R-134a), in four different quantities, depending on the serial number of your unit. ...

We first niticed the freezer and fridge not being cold enough, then it stopped making ice. The freezer would not freeze things but still felt cold. I cleaned the bottom coils. They were not too bad. This fridge is only three years old. Then after reading I noticed a build up of ice around the bottom vent. This has since melted and what remains frozen and continues to freeze is the water line behind the panel right under a fan and next to what looks like t
