GE French Door Refrigerator error codes and performance issues - GFE27GGDAWW


Recommended Posts

Good Day i have a GE 27cuft refrigerator which i find takes long to come down to temp.

refrigerator section takes long to come down to temp, the FF fan seems to run loud or surge. I also notice water or ice crystals on the top near the twin chill badge.

error codes are as follows:

0002, 0005, 0007, 0010, 0011, 0012, 0303.

Any assistance would be appreciated  even a its of what the error codes for my model means which seems to be hard to find

I'm tagging @David Jero I think he used to deal with GE before, and may be able to shed some light on those codes.

Those numbers look like Diagnostic Table, not error codes

If it sounds like the fan is scraping the ice, it could be a defrost problem, or a defrost drain clogged up. Also, the door maybe not closing properly, or the door seal is leaking the outside air into the FF compartment. Take the cover of the evaporator off, and see how much frost build up is on the coils.

the fresh food section is defrosting as it should so back story got the fridge second hand so it was off for a while ... its only been running three weeks now the fan is loud but loud as in normal operation where as the freezer fan is silent so im wondering if the bearings on the fan is going. reason i think so is it maybe is trying to run at low speed but cant so when the FF gets warm closer to 3 and 4 degrees c the control board request medium or high speed causing the  fan to surge.

 

its set at 1 degree c so i expect it to fluctuate but it stays stead at 3 all the time it will hit 4 or 5 after  heated defrost or on days when you open the fridge a lot to cook.

first time having a refrigerator with control board so some days it does down to 1 or 2 degrees C ...was wondering if thats because of the ambient thermistor sensing the apartment is too warm to maintain  some temps. but when the place is cooler it goes down to set point i live in the caribbean btw as of late temps outside are like 30 to 35 degrees c. which is close to the refrigerators extreem operating temp

Since it holds 3°C steadily in the FF compartment, it's within spec, so I wouldn't worry just yet. Every time you open the door in a humid and hot Caribbean, the system needs to work hard to bring the temp back down. Make sure there is plenty of space behind and on the sides of the fridge for proper air-circulation. Have you checked the condenser? Maybe it needs to be brushed and vacuumed, so it can dissipate the heat easily.

The fan bearings could be going bad. Try spinning the fan with your finger, and if it's kinda sticky, replace it.

I have cleaned or brushed the half I can reach of the condenser it seems fine was not that much dust in the grand scheme of it all the compressor gives off most of the heat. at least when i tested with my laser temp gun it was giving off 36 degrees c but not like it was opened when tested.

 

so dont worry about the error codes then it within spec. just wanted to make sure the codes were not from a dying fan.
