it's looks like the current (2013) version of this refrigerator is ZISS480DXSS
ok..thanks for telling me where to find the model #. The refrigerator is not cooling enough. It's been like a slow decline in how cold the refrigerator and freezer cool. Right now, we really don't even use the refrigerator for anything...we started putting our normal fridge stuff in the freezer side. But that's starting to lose it's cool too....to the point that we can't get it to get down below like 45 or so degrees.
The other thing that is noticeable and has been for some time...when you open the refrigerator and freezer doors, you can feel some really hot areas on the face of the doors and the vertical "spine" that separates the freezer from the fridge.
We've also noticed when calling around to appliance repair services, that most of them don't want to touch this type of refrigerator.
Right...unfortunately, i'm at work so i wouldn't be able to provide you with the model #. When you say raise the "top cover" are you meaning the cabinet looking faces that are above the fridge doors on the exterior face of the built in? And if it is a the compressor is that usually all that the issue is...and that replacing the compressor would fix the fridge? I know that's an open question and i'm asking you to generalize...but it would help to know. How much do compressors usually run on these types of fridges?
And do you have a recommendation on where to buy parts for GE Monogram parts?
Thanks Kelly...great advice!
