    I know what you are thinking but these little units are different from our bigger stuff.

    That's the plan. I took a SH reading at the outlet of the evap and it was 0*. See what it is in the morning. Thanks for all the help guys. I'll post temp tomorrow.

    It's a GE. Don't forget to check the door adjustment. If the light is staying on, you get the easy bake oven effect.

    From your description, it sounds like you might have an evaporator leak. Since the unit runs at 0 to a slight vacuum, this will allow it to draw moisture into the system that will freeze up in the cap tube and can cause you all kind of crazy problems.

    Common sense isn't very common anymore.

    If he uses a good micron gauge, he will spot that leak condition during the vacuum he pulls before the recharge.

    I have a GSS25...... a couple of years ago compressor sounded louder than normal, pulled away from wall, no access fittings, brazed on live access fitting. The type where you braze it on then tighten and it pierces the tubing. Well it was low on charge so i got a can of 134a at auto parts store and the can tap. So about every year when it gets a little noisy I fill it up. GE is piece of crap refrigerator, Had a recall on the doors about 5 yrs ago too. They sent some new one and some dude came out and installed under warranty.
    I think the door deal was a class action lawsuit.
    I am jus waiting for it to die. I hear Kenmore are good...lady at appliance parts store recommended Kenmore.

    She only pulled 29*F.
    Qamar- thanks for the info, I will read up when I get the chance.
    I believe my micron reading was indicating a leak or moisture. Ill see if I get time to post it.
    I do not think the door switch and light is a proble.
    My boss is calling GE to come. I simply don't have the time to be messing witht his thing any more.
    Thanks for all the help guys. I will update this later.

    Well I certainly deserve an F here. GE guy plugged in his computer and said the evap fan motor was no good. He replaced it and it working fine. Funny part of it is my boss asked to keep the motor so I can see it and the guys cut the leads so short you can't check it. Fishy fishy. I swear I could hear the thing running. I could not even figure out how to get the plastic off to see the fan. I hope my boss learned his lesson. Don't have me work on your little frig. We do commercial A/C!!!! So emarrased I angry. Anyways rant over. Thanks to everyone for the help.
