GE Monogram Fridge - is freezing. ZISS420MRESS

8 posts in this topic

My monogram fridge has a freezer temp of 0 and a fridge temp of 23 -- is freezing everything in my fridge and ruining beer. Anyone feel like helping me troubleshoot this? Non-frozen beer goes to the first one to figure it out!

This one is pretty simple...betcha the damper door is broken off it hinge.

to access,remove the light lens and frame from the top of the fridge compartment...carefully disassemble the Styrofoam housing at the top left corner...may need to cut the silicon with a box knife to assist in this.

feast yer squintys on the black damper door inside...is it laying askew, broken off the hinge?

well there you are!

Thanks KurtiusInterupptus. I think someone else had that same idea -- prior to me going in to that Styrofoam box to check out the doggie door... you could tell it was rebuilt and resealed.

That little door was not off the hinges and was actually working correctly (open the door and it closes, close the door and it opens, but I saw something that might have been causing an air leak. Seems someone has been in there before and when they put back the first piece of styrofoam (closest to the left, and the door), It looked like a pretty nice blobert of silicone was there keeping it from making a nice seal. I'm hoping that was it.

I cleared the silicone booger and set it all up with a nice pearly white silicone seal. I guess, I'll leave it alone for a few hours and come back and inspect.

I'll let you know how it goes!

that was it - the stryofoam was all jacked up and causing a significant air leak. Plugged it all up and viola! 0/38.
