Question about GE GSS25JFM Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE side by side. The light bulb in the refrigerator sometimes stays on when the door is closed tightly.

So because the light bulb in the refrigerator stays on the food in the top of the refrigerator is almost hot. The switch seems to turn the panel & bulb off when you press the light button to do so. The ceiling of the refrigerator and temp controls are also very warm. The door does hang lower on the refrigerator side by a small amount. I have replaced the defrost timer.

SOURCE: Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: Where is the defrost timer located on GE

This model does not have a defrost timer. It has a motherboard. You must jump out the plug to the main board to test the defrost circuit. In order to do this take the cover off of the main board, find the three wire connector on the base of the main board, connecter is normally blue in color. On the board itself it will identify termials as line, defrost, and compressor. To test you must create a jumper wire.Install the jumper in the plug terminals identified as line and defrost.This will turn the defrost heater on. If the heater does not come on, look for a defective heater or a defrost thermostat(mounted on the top of the evaporator). If the heater does come on replace the thermister(located on top of evap, white in color and has two white wires part#WR55x10025)

SOURCE: freezer defrosting at will; refrigerator side uneven temperatures

Sound like it's going into showroom mode that the same problem we had, by unplugging it for awhile and then plugging it back in usually works if not this what we were told.
Sounds like you have bad thermistors ( # 4 and/or # 5 ) .To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also

Light does not come on when you open door


Test your 40 watt light bulb in another fixture if the light bulb is OK then unplug the refrigerator and open fresh food compartment and pry out the light switch. Test for continuity HERE For some reason your model shows an additional light switch on the control panel located inside the fresh food compartment above top shelf. Try switching the ligh switch on from there.

The interior lights stay on when the doors are shut and sometimes go off when you open the doors.


I have the same issue! It seems to me that the lights stay on until the bulbs get to hot and thats when they turn off on their own until they cool down enough to turn on. That leads me to believe that the little buttons that the doors push in (at the top hinge side of each door) are no longer turning the lights off when doors close. A wiring issue, or something. I litterally just took the bulbs out of the refrigerator. The freezer switch/lights work fine. I hope to find an answedr, if i do, I'll let you know!!

The top of the refrigerator around the light bulb area is hot which makes all the food near it warm. Is there any way to fix it?


Remove the light bulb for a day.
If the area gets cool with no light bulb you will have to repair/replace the light switch near the door.
If it is still warm you will have tp provide more information to find out what is causing the heat.

Kenmore refregerator lights on/burning even doors are closed


If I understand correctly, you have the bottom freezer with the two doors that open into the fresh food section. Also you have to open one of the two doors first in order to get into the fresh food section. If i ma correct. The switch on the door you have to open first to get into the fresh food section is bad. This is why it makes not difference if you hold both in. The switch on the second door does something else. You will need to replace the switch that the first. You can test this switch by, take the switch out. They are tricky to get out. Take a putty knife and slide it under one end of the switch, push in while you are prying outward. It should pop out. There should be three wires going to the switch. One of the wires is hot (110 Volts), one goes to the fan inside the fridge and the other goes to the light. (The switch operates like this. When you close the door, it turns the light off and the fan on. When you open the door, it turns the fan off and the light on.) Once you find out which one is hot, connect one of the others to it. If the fan comes on try connecting the hot to the other wire. The light in the fridge should turn off. If so replace the switch. I hope you can understand the way I tried to explain.
