Question about Frigidaire Gallery GLHS38EE Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The freezer is cold but the refridge side is not. If I tap on the servoe assy in the fridge side the servo will open the door and cold air will start coming into the fridge side but later I will find the air has stopped coming out of the air inlet and tap it again and it will open again.

Ahhhh, the classic symptom of a frozen coil/air return duct. You'll have to pull the back panel off the freezer wall to view the coils. The are likely a block of ice causing the air channels on the sides to be frozen, thus blocking air flow. You may need a defrost t-stat or a defrost timer. If the defrost cycle isn't working then you will get a freeze up eventually. The only other reason is if the freezer door was left open slightly overnight letting in moist air. Let us know what you find.

SOURCE: My admiral fridge freezer suddenly stopped working -

I took the time to look up your Model # and you do have the right board. Jazz 14 Should just be a revision one higher than your origional. Describe to me exactly what happens when you try to program it. You may be missing one little step. Make sure you are doing every step exactly right. I too can miss one little confirmation stroke and it seems like it wont work. I Can email you the tech sheet for your model. This will show you how to test all the sensors, and the damper to determine why the FF side is getting too cold. I will also help on my end as much as i can

SOURCE: losing coldness in freezer and

Condenser is in need of being cleaned badly or your fan motor to cool the condenser is not operating. Compressor is overheating. Removed the panel in back of the refrigerator and clean the condenser so air can freely pass over it for heat removal. Allow compressor to cool off before restarting it.

SOURCE: Fridge stopped working, freezer still works

HI
If the compressor doesn't run, it is likely that the defrost timer is malfunctioning. This part is located near the compressor. To test the defrost timer:

Step 1: 
Unplug the refrigerator.

Step 2: 
Disconnect the wires from the timer and timer motor. Remove the timer from its brackets by backing out two retaining screws.

Step 3: 
Test the defrost timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each defrost timer -- not motor -- wire, and turn the timer control screw shaft until it clicks. If the defrost timer is functioning, the meter will read zero. If the needle jumps, the defrost timer is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type.

Step 4: 
Connect the new defrost timer the same way the old one was connected.

To check the defrost timer motor, clip one probe of the VOM to each motor wire, setting the scale to RX100. If the meter reads between about 500 and 3,000 ohms, the motor is functioning properly. If the meter reads higher than 3,000 ohms, the timer motor is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new motor the same way the old one was connected.

My freezer is working but not at top notch capacity. The refrigerator is definitely not working properly as the spring water, for example, is not chilled. What must I do to resolve this...


Hi Alexandra. Hey New York? Brrrrr.

The thermostat actually controls the freezer side. The fridge side is controlled with cold air blown from the freezer side. The controls in the top of the fridge box contain the thermostat/switch, and the damper adjustment for the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side. Your problem is a blockage of the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side.
1. Frost blockage of the passage
2. Fan stoppage on the freezer side
3. stuck or broken damper

Some dampers are just simple movable plastic doors, some are servo/solenoid/motor operated.
Look up your fridge on Sears Parts, and the exploded diagram will help where to find the passage and how it can be blocked.

Fridge compartment is not cold enough


inside the back of your freezer there are two holes that lead to your refrige there is also a fan with a small motor attached is the fan blowing the air fromthe freezer into the refridge section also are the two holes plugged up with ice these are some of the first things that you should be checking turning that switch basicly jut opens the damper door that goes fromthe freezer to the fridge so in allactuality if the door is pluged with ice or the air isnt being pushed through those holes your refridge wont get that cold also another thing to check would be the operation of that small damper door if you do have a fan runnning and do not have ice but if the door is always closed this could also cause this problem hope this helps

My 1998 olds silh. back ac doesnt blow cold .


before you tear apart the dash to get to your driver side servo motor-disconnect your battery for 5-minutes, with both front doors open reconnect your battery(this resets your on board computer),then turn your car on and turn your a/c on to high with the coldest setting on both sides for dual air systems and leave the car running for a few minutes. you will feel the air cold again. there is a sensor on the passenger side that will trigger the servo motor to not move if the front door is closed. servos usually get stuck after the power was cut off. if this does not do it, have your a/c sytem checked for leaks.

this is also worth considering:

Dual Climate System. If you're not familiar with this setup, there's a driver and passenger climate setting. The passenger setting knob is on the right of the climate control console. If you have already properly adjusted this setting, there's a problem with the servo motor being out of the preset range for the a/c & heater doors. Every time power is cut from the unit, the servo resets the doors by doing a "sweep" from full cold to full hot maximum range. Over time the servo will fall out of range from constant full range flexing, and the part that controls the range limit must be replaced. Reseting the main module by disconnecting the battery has a slim chance of successfully fixing the issue.

Heater blows cold air


this is a huge problem I have been running into,( is this a northern car) There is a blend door in the HVAC system of the car that switches from cold side to hot side. This door is actuated by a servo motor or vacuum. With your car being newer I would have to say it's a servo motor. This isn't an eassy fix and you might have to take the dash apart. Sometimes the servo motors are accesed right under the dash where the radio compartment is. You have to look under the dash and see if you can see it before you go taking the dash apart.Hope this helps you , Please rate this for me

Whirlpool side by side freezer ice cold refridge only at 55


My frigidaire has a flapper valve assembly that opens and lets the cold air in from the freezer as required. The frigidaires are known for the flapper breaking and staying open and allowing too much cold air in to the refridgerator side.. Check yours out. Mine has a shroud at the top of the refridgerator. Remove it and look around, I feel sure you have the same problem.

Fridg not cold


your story is very odd but likely nobody is messing with the door switch hwen you moved , or the wires could have shorted out. normally, the door switch, when you open a door would switch on a cabinet light and turn off the blower. in your case, its the reverse, as you open a door, the blower runs and if you close the door, the blower stops. im not sure if you can figure out which pair is the normally close and which one is the normally open on the door switch in order to swap them or you may rplace the door switch.

Freezer freezes fine/ Cold air not getting to Refigerator side


I can offer a suggestion. It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube
