Refrigerator lights up then shuts down after a couple of minutes
Hope someone can help. Have this side by side GE Profile Artica PSC23SGRB
model: PSC23SG RB refrigerator. Woke up and found it totally not working. The top lights on the frig side were off and the bottom ones were on in the frig side. All lights were on in the freezer side. the upper control indicator would light up. When pushing the freezer control to 0 but it would just snap back to the room temp. When pushing the frig temp to 34 it would also snap back to room temp. Tried the immediate 15min chill setting but also did not work, Went to the back, took off lower panel to expose the compressoor and some fan that shot into some cyclinder shaped filter of sorts. It was loaded with dust. Cleaned it and went to fire it up the unit. After plugging it back in I opened the door, noticed all lights on and the refrigetator seemed to be working. It worked for about almost 7-10 mins with the freezer working but not the frig part. After 7 to 10 mins it would go back to that shut down mode with the upper lights off and lower frig light on. I would let the unit sit unplugged for a bit and I would repeat this process over and over again with same results.
One of my thoughts was to check to see if the coil was fouled up with dust but can't get at it. At least not from the rear. I'd like some advice on this before I try finding out how to check the coil. If someone thinks its the coil, then how do I get at it? Couldn't find anything on Youtube. 773-909-6255, 773-735-6400 Ed
Is this a good question?
