Troubleshooting GE Refrigerators
If you are an owner of a GE refrigerator, you may have encountered a few problems as you were using it through the years. Although GE units are known for their durability, dependability, and longevity, problems tend to crop up as your unit gets older. This is where knowledge about a few GE troubleshooting tips may come in handy.
When the refrigerator is not running, check to make sure it is plugged in or properly inserted into the wall outlet. When this does not work, check your home’s circuit breakers to see if electricity is available through the wall outlet where your unit is plugged.
Changes in your unit’s fridge or freezer temperature may require a few hours to take effect. Typically, you need to wait at least 24 hours for your adjustments to take effect.
When the ice maker or water dispenser is not working, check if the water supply is hooked up, and if enough water is being pumped into the compartment. A replacement of the filter cartridge may be needed if ice cubes from your fridge turn out small or hollow.
To make sure that the gasket is in good condition, clean it regularly using a moist piece of washcloth, making sure to remove all the dirt particles and other debris from the gasket folds.
Common Complaints with GE Refrigerators
Despite the fact that this is a long standing brand with one of the best reputations in the world, GE refrigerators can still improve in some areas, particularly when it comes to lighting, handles, and water filters. Units from this brand often come with bulky lighting systems which take up a lot of storage space. GE units are also known for loose handles as well as for its water filtration system that takes up as much as a fourth of the space in side by side models.
