Customer Question
i have a ge side...
i have a ge side by side refrigerator gsl 25 jftf bs about 2 years old ...it is not cooling...I have an infrared thermometer and have measured the temperatures in and out of the condenser coil approx 82f in and 61f out. at the expansion valve it is approx 67f at one end and approx 64 at the other end. I've cleaned all the dust off of the coil and the fan is running.

The blower exhaust temp inside the freezer compartment is about 51f and doesn't seem to get any colder....

Are the temps I measured on the cooling circuit approx where they should be? Any suggestions or could you give me the temps that I should be seeing at various locations in the circuit....Thanks, XXXXX

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Can freon be added to the circuit in the field or can the compressor be changed or is this 2 year old fairly expensive refrigerator junk?
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
