10 Year old GE Profile Side by Side.
Insufficent cooling on refrigerator side regardless of thermostat setting
in the normal range or all the way down.
We have frequent problems where the refrigerator side is not cooling
properly although the freezer side seems to do ok. Often it *seems*
traceable to dust & lint laden condensor coils underneath; at least
cleaning them makes the problem go away. This unit seems to be
hypersenstive to dirty coils. Not sure if that is the case this time but
while I wait to cleaning them cured it again I would like to know a bit
more about this model.
Where does the cold air enter the refrigerator side or does it just come
over for the freezer side? Does the freezer 'stat run the show and the
refrigerator 'stat just control air coming from the freezer side? I'd like
to check if something is blocked. Besides the adjustable opening down by
the veggie crisper I presume whatever else there is must be up by the
controls and light. How does the cover panel come off? Right now while
the unit is running I don't hear any sound of fan forced air inside the
refrigerator compartment but naturally it's one of those things where I
can't remember whether I'm supposed to or not; I don't recall what
If there is an actual refrigeration problem I will get a pro in but as
things are staying frozen on the freezer side if it something minor like a
blocked damper I'll have a go at it. It seems likely it's something like
that. I don't mind a little disassembly; I cleaned a plugged condensate
drain on the freezer side a year or two back.
