Possible problems with GE Adora Refrigerator Freezer
- Freezer is not freezing.
- Freezer is frosting up.
- Ice maker is not working.
Why is my GE Adora Refrigerator Freezer is not freezing?
Condenser Coils are Dirty
If the condenser coils are dirty, they won’t be able to dissipate heat effectively, greatly reducing the cooling capacity of the freezer. If they are dirty, clean them.
Evaporator Fan Motor
Open the freezer door and then manually activate the freezer door switch to check the evaporator fan motor. If the door switch is activated, but the evaporator fan motor won’t run, replace the evaporator fan motor.
Unplug the freezer and remove the start relay from the compressor and determine the continuity by a multimeter, if not, or if it smells burnt, replace it.
The Evaporator Coils are Frosted Over
Without defrost heater turning on, frost will continue to accumulate on the evaporator coils, and the coils will eventually frost over. To check the fault of defrost heater, use a multimeter to test the defrost heater for continuity. If the defrost heater does not have continuity, replace it.
Sealed System Leak
If only one shelf of the freezer is freezing or only one section of the evaporator coil is frosting up, there may be a sealed system leak. Sealed system repairs are usually cost-prohibitive. If the sealed system is leaking, you will probably need to replace the freezer.
You also should check the condenser fan motor, main control board, thermostat, display board, and compressor. If it does not work, replace it.
How to prevent GE Adora Refrigerator Freezer from Frosting Up?
- Keep the door closed: Make sure the freezer door is completely shut after every use to prevent moisture to enter the freezer.
- Organize your freezer: Reducing the need to frequently open and close the freezer door.
- Cool food before storing: Placing hot food in the freezer can create humidity. Let the food cool first and wipe any moisture on the outside of the packaging before storing it in the freezer.
- Inspect the door seal: Slowly moving your hand around the outside of the closed freezer door to check for seal damage. If you feel cold air leaking out, replace the seal.
- Check the temperature: Set the temperature at the manufacturer’s recommended setting (usually 0°F) and use a freezer thermometer to monitor the temperature. If it gets too warm or cold, troubleshoot your freezer or call a repair professional.
Check and fix the troubleshoot of ice make on GE Adora Refrigerator Freezer
Freezer Temperature is Above 10 Degrees F (-12C)
The freezer temperature should be set between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 to -15C) for the ice maker to work properly. If the freezer temperature is too high, ensure that the condenser coils are clear of debris and the condenser fan is working properly.
Water Inlet Valve
The valve requires at least 20 psi to make ice. If the water inlet valve has sufficient pressure and is getting power, but the ice maker won’t fill with water to make ice, replace the water inlet valve.
Ice Maker Assembly
Check the water inlet valve, water line, and fan before replacing the ice maker assembly. If none of these parts are at fault, and the freezer temperature is at least 15 degrees Fahrenheit, replace the ice maker assembly.
Depending on your model, make sure that the on/off switch is in the on position or the bail arm is in the down position. If the icemaker module has ejector blades, check to ensure that ice cubes are not stuck in the blades.
If the door switch fails, the dispenser will not turn on. If the door switch does not have continuity when activated, replace it.
Low Water Pressure from House Supply
The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to function properly. Check the water flow and test the pressure to determine if it is at least 20 psi.
