GE Freezers - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals


without getting all technical, look for the condenser coil and be sure it is clean. Some are under the refrigerator and can be accessed by removing a "kick plate." Some are under and in the back and can be accessed by removing a cover with a few screws. Some units have a small fan that moves air over the condenser coil. Look for it and see if it is running. And then there are some that have coils that run up the rear of the unit and when it is pushed back against the wall, the air can not circulate and can cause this issue. This is the simple first step to do before getting a service tech involved.

Check condenser fan to see if it's working. It's the fan next to compressor

The 6 or7 may be a setting number or a degree readout, which is a little on the warm side, should be around a -10 to-15.

Gaskets can cause this, along with internal fans getting bad or iced over. Other answers might indicate a leak of freon.

the users manual does not cover this particular issue as to the temperature swing. I have seen some thermostats that are the "constant on" type that you are describing. No way of telling from the vague manual. As long as you are not storing ice cream for a long period of time, 0 degrees is usually fine for most home applications. Sorry I can not give you more info.

Alissa,
Try placing two or three jugs of water in the freezer and wait 36 hrs. before opening.. If the water is frozen solid you have no problems.. if its not frozen, the call a service tech..

I would contact the manufacturer first. Home Depot is usually no help.

Make sure the electricity is connected. Check the start capacitor - check for the compressor running.

Have you tested the wall socket for power, do that first.

They are usually for extra ddehumidification based on the area you live in. If your freezer is working correctly, I would just leave them where they are at

If there is no power after the repair man replaced the board and panel, the repair job is not complete. Have the repair man finish the job.

Unplug it and see if it resets after you wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. If the outage was caused by a surge, it may have damaged the control board.

Truly... if it is an indicator that is not working you be buckets of money ahead to get a $7 freezer thermometer and work from there

but alas... I suspect you are encountering deeper issues.

Looking at "Appliance PARTS PROS"... Your model number (FUM21SVRWW) is not resolving to a good number (looks valid when I insert an A, B, C or D between the "V" and the "R").

Like FUM21SVARWW

With that I found A freezer part WR09X20946... definitely
(needs to be verified).

http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/PartInfo.aspx?inventory=11721885&SourceCode=1&SearchTerm=FUM21SVBRWW&ModelNum=FUM21SVBRWW

start at drawing part 43... drawing (top left corner)

Your model number (FUM21SVRWW) did give me a part... but it would not DOUBLE CHECK...

I think the sensor and controller are combined into a single control.

Always get three decent estimates... (SEARS PARTS = $$$$) shows your part as WR09X10063... but personally... I would talk to EVERYBODY else first.... I'm just saying...!!!

Appliance Parts was offering "try their part" return policy... which is wonderfully attractive to us amateurs.

Trust but verify.

Good luck and good hunting.

Goto Sears parts online. And plug in your model number. They have a lot of Manuels.

Look on the sides or back for a louver. It's behind the louver.

Try disconnecting the power at its source, then reconnecting it.
