Please Help,

 

I have a GE PSC25MSWASS and have condensation in the fridge on the wall next to the freezer. Condensation only appears on the lower half of the wall. I've change the thermistor in the fridge but still condensation. The temp in the fridge range between 45 & 50 F. To reduce the condensation I have to use the turbo cool once a day. Freeze side is fine.

How's the Door Gaskets ?

 

Try the George Wa$h1ngton test ...
Close the Door on George and slide him around the Gaskets.
Check to be sure he stays snug

When excessive moisture or ice accumulates on the interior of the refrigerator, the door gaskets may need to be resealed as outlined in this pointer.

Which thermistor did you change in the ref section?  Can you tell if the evaporator fan motor at the top of the refrigerator evaporator cover is running or excessive frost at the base of the cover?

Did you run diagnostics? Make sure the control boards are communicating.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Thank you for all the replies. Below are my responses.

 

Yes, I did the dollar seal test and the dollar was snug all around.

 

I replaced the thermistor on the left hand side about 1/2 what down. Yes I can hear the evaporator fan running and I don't have excessive frost.

 

I have not run the diagnostics. I don't know how. Please provide directions. My panel looks like this http://www.repaircli...RepairHelp=True

 

Thank you and have a blessed day!

I've battled this fridge. Same problem... changed out everything... diagnostics are limited. There are multipe fans in the freezer as well as two in the fridge, so don't just go on sound to determine if the fans are working as one could be working and the other one doesn't

Things Ive discovered and things I've tried

1) You need the diagnostic aid to really diagnose this fridge

2) changed all thermistors and raised the fridge evap thermistor

3) adjusted the express thaw temp( this may a problem if temp too high, need to do f/u with customer to check on success

4) replaced mainboard (fixed other issues but fridge still slightly above 41

5) ran the issue by the Ge Instructor from asti and he said to check the fridge evap fan and the seals around the evap cover. He said the fan and new cover comes as a unit and has been problematic... my seals seem fine and I am trying everything else first and have not found the kit the instructor mentioned
6)checked the 3way switcher valve for proper ooeration

and make sure you don't have the ice ball issue common to that design.

Thank you Spannerwrench for the manual!

Thank you DurhamAppliance for the advice. 

 

With the service manual and the advice I will wrestle with the GE this weekend and let you know my result.

 

Have a blessed day!

hope you had some luck addressing this...IMHO, this is one of the worst pieces of shit in a LONG line of POS fridges down the pike from GE...
I wouldnt take one as a gift...except maybe to use for target practice..

I second that emotion
This sucky fridge and your well deserved rant, inspired this little ditty...

that's a fridge i want no part
except to be there when you take your shot
And If you feel like giving it
more beat down and destruction
I second that emotion
