Unhappy Refrigerator side is freezing foods. GE.

The refrigerator section is freezing and I am not able to put produce in the refrigerator because the produce will freeze. There is not a problem with the thermostat as this has been changed. The back was taken off and the fan was cleaned. The water line has also frozen so water is not available through the door dispenser. Help! GE side by side.

GE refrigerator

The refrigerator is by GE. Side by side with ice and water dispenser on the outside. Water filter in the upper right of the refrigerator.

What's the model #? If it's got a water filter it's not that old. I suspect you have the fridge with a motorized air damper door that opens and closes to allow air into the ref. section, though it's nothing you can see without taking it apart. If so, that door is probably broken and allowing maximum air into the ref. section whenever the fan runs.

Red face Model

The refrigerator was purchased in August 2001 and the model number is GSS25LGMB BB. Is this possible to repair myself?

You have the model I was mentioning. You will be able to fix it if you can figure out how to get to the air damper on the refridgerator ceiling. You have to remove the air ducts that run up the back of the refridgerator wall. Some just pull off and some have screws. The air damper door is encased in styrofoam. If it is broken you can't just replace the door. They send you the whole styrofoam assembly.

Smile Thanks

I will take a look at the part, but may not get to it until Saturday. I will try sooner and let you know then. I really appreciate the help.

I had the same problem. The door hinge broke at the motor. Once I looked at it it appeared to be a job Super Glue might be able to fix. I removed the 4 screws on top of the motor. This frees the top to the motor but it is only a flat piece of plastic which holds the bottom pin in place that actually swings the door. This allows the fixed door to be reinstalled. Super Glue was applied. I held the pieces together, to keep pressure on the two parts, for about 10 minutes. Reinstalled the parts. It has been four days and so far all is well.

I have not put the light back in right now as it allows me to watch and the door work. Iíll watch it for a week or so and reinstall the light assembly. I periodically look in to see if it is still working. Plus, you can see the door when it is back, toward the freezer, and tell if it is still attached. When it is forward, closing the port to the frig, it is in your face.

Hope your breaks are as clean as mine.

Good luck
