I posted recently about our freezer having problems staying cold.
We have a side by side GE Profile Model PSHS6RGXCDSS
I don't really have a bench mark to compare its current functioning to beca
use in the past I never paid attention to the temperature because it was wo
rking fine. But since I had some problems with the freezer getting too war
m I have been watching it very closely now.
Here is what I am seeing.
If I set the temperature settings very cold (-6F and 34F) for the freezer a
nd fridge it will get there eventually. Yesterday we were out all day and
when I got home around 5 p.m. it was at that temperature.
But then after the doors have been opened it starts to rise and then contin
ues to rise. It got up to 6F and 41F last night when I went to bed. The 4
1F for the fridge concerns me because from what I read bacteria can start t
o be a problem when it gets above 41F.
Then at night it gets down to the temperature I set for it. But it takes a
long time. When I woke at 3:30 a.m. I took a look at it and it was at 4F
and 37F. The when I woke for the day at 6:30 a.m. it was at -2 and 34 whi
ch is the temperature I had set for it.
Should it take this long to get back down to the set temperature?
The room is cool and is air conditioned.
Everything in the freezer is still nice and frozen and the ice cubes are fi
ne. The ice pops still seem a little mushy to me.
I'm just curious about the length of time it is taking to get cold again.
It seems to be having a hard time.
Thanks for any feedback.
