    Appliance Tip of the Week...

    Ice Ball Kit

    This kit contains a heater and seal kit to stop moisture from creating an ice problem in the refrigerators dispenser center. This kit seals gaps in the beverage center.

    This GE refrigerator kit solves what GE describes as an ice ball problem where an ice ball forms in the refrigerator side and block the air flow from the freezer section which causes the refrigerator section to get too warm and spoils food.

    Dual Evaporator models, by design, create a high humidity environment in the fresh food section. Although this design improves the preservation of certain refrigerated foods, the potential exists in some units for an ice ball to form in the lower section of the compartment due to excessively cold temperatures and high humidity. The low temperatures are created by gaps around the beverage center duct and along the left side of the Custom Cool air handler cover. These locations can be sealed and the temperature improved using the service kit.

    My fresh food section has the ice ball forming in the corner and the temperatures are warmer than desired. (Showing about 40 but set to 34). I've replaced all thermistors and the main board. Does the ice ball kit correct temperature control problems? I've already sank a lot of cash into repairs, just don't want to spend more than we have to on this unit. Thanks.

    Model Number PSC25MSWCSS

    Yes this ice ball kit is for this issue of the ice ball forming in the corner.

    I have a large ice ball in the back of the refrigerator section. Can you advise if this kit works in my refrigerator? Can you describe the parts that it includes or replaces.

    Model Number PSH23PSSBSV

    This ice ball kit is listed as a part that will work on the model provided

    Had a repair man look at the frig and was told it needs an AC de ice ball kit and sensor temp. Are these difficult items to replace or should I have it done.

    Model Number PSC25SGSCSS

    The parts could be installed by a consumer as it comes with instructions that tell you how to do the repair

    Shows this repair kit is compatible with the PSS26PSTASS. but when I check the model for compatibility before ordering, it says it's not compatible. Can anyone help?

    Model Number GE profile Arctica PSS26PSTSS

    This AC De ice ball kit is for your unit. The reason it does not show compatibility is because it is not listed on the parts screen breakdown of your unit as it is an add on part.
