  • Q: When the freezer defrost will it ruin the food  (2 Answers)

    By Freezer 

    • Best answerHello Freezer - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. During the defrost cycle, the defrost timer activates defrost heater(s) in the evaporator section which heats up, melts frost off the evaporator coils, and then turns off. During defrost there will be no running sounds, no fan noise no compressor noise. You may hear water dripping or sizzling as it hits the heater. Most models will defrost for approximately 25 to 45 minutes usually twice a day. Temperatures in the freezer should not be affected during this heating process. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

    • AHi CAN- Thanks for choosing GE! Adjustable legs at the front corners of the refrigerator should be set so the refrigerator is firmly positioned on the floor, and the front is raised just enough that the door closes easily when opened about halfway. To adjust the leveling legs, turn the legs clockwise to raise the refrigerator, counterclockwise to lower it. See page 31 of the Installation Instructions. Keep in touch! SUE@GEA

    • AHi - Thanks for your purchase! We are sorry to hear of the water leak and can certainly understand your concern. Refrigerators with automatic defrost have a drain tube that carries water from the defrost cycle to a fixed drain pan under the refrigerator. If you have a clogged drain tube, you might see ice and/or water inside on the freezer floor or on the floor in front of the freezer. These models require some disassembly to access the defrost drain tube, so we recommend that you contact service. Please contact GE Appliance Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment online: - Also, some leaks could be plumbing issues. Check the copper water line (icemaker) to the water valve on the back of the refrigerator. Please contact your local plumber if your leak appears to be coming from the copper line itself. See the following troubleshooting link: - If the icemaker is leaking water onto the floor, see the following link: - We hope this is helpful. Keep in touch! SUE@GEA

  • Q: What kind of a compresser does the GDE25ESKSS have?  (1 Answer)

    By tired 

    • AHello tired - A reciprocating compressor, also known as a Scotch Yoke compressor, is designed to give years of reliable service. The main component of a refrigerator is the compressor. High quality is very important. This type of compressor consists of a reciprocating piston operating in a stationary cylinder. •It is actuated through a sliding yoke by a crank on the upper end of a vertical shaft. •The shaft is made of hardened steel and runs in cast iron bearings. •The upper bearing is self-aligning, which helps eliminate wear. •A rotary oil pump is at the bottom of the shaft, which keeps the compressor lubricated and operating smooth through years of use. As of January 1994, all GE branded refrigerators moved from a rotary compressor to a reciprocating compressors. Additionally, none of our refrigerators use linear (inverter) compressors. -TREY@GEA
