Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE side by side fridge that you can hear the condenser kick on and off too frequently and then this morning woke up to water on the floor and the freezer side not working. Any ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Almost 9 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I guess that depends on what needs to be done

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so

This means that your compressor is overloading and cutting out. It will turn off for a few minutes and then try again over and over. Pull the refrigerator forward and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower back access panel and locate your large black round compressor. There is a small plastic box attached to the side of the compressor with several wires going into it. This is your overload relay. Pull the overload relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it needs to be replaced. If it doesn't rattle, then you likely have a bad compressor and you'll need to call a technician in order to replace the compressor.
