GE appliances are known for their innovative features. This makes your appliance uniquely useful, but more moving parts can increase the probability of a machine malfunctioning.
The warranties on GE appliances vary depending on the appliance and part that needs repair (check your manual for specific details). If you’re dealing with an expired warranty and a broken appliance, your local Mr. Appliance can help. Our professionals offer GE appliance repairs to help your out-of-warranty appliance work like new again.
Below are some problems we commonly repair with GE appliances.
GE Refrigerator Repair
When having your GE refrigerator serviced, you want to make sure the repairs are done correctly. There’s no disappointment like a fridge full of spoiled food or a leak that poses a safety hazard. If you’ve experienced any of the issues below, rest assured. There’s a solution for each.
Ice Maker or Water Dispenser Doesn’t Work
If you’re like many others, you have come to rely on your fridge’s ice maker and water dispenser as your main water source. When these mechanisms aren’t working as they should, you could have issues with your filter, water inlet valves, water line, or water pressure.
Low water pressure in your home is the most common cause of this issue. If you notice that the water throughout your home trickles instead of pouring out of your faucets, this problem is bigger than just your refrigerator and probably requires a plumber.
Other possible causes are more appliance specific. For example, a filter filled with debris, or a clogged or damaged water line doesn’t allow much water to funnel through. Check to ensure the water line to your refrigerator is connected properly and be sure to replace your filters regularly.
Additionally, if you have faulty water inlet valves, they may need to be replaced by an appliance professional.
Maybe your fridge is not cold enough. Or the complete opposite could be true: your refrigerator freezes everything inside.
A refrigerator that freezes food could be caused by a faulty door seal or a defective thermostat. A malfunctioning thermostat will not keep your fridge at the appropriate temperature. And a door that is not properly sealed can let warm air in your appliance, creating frost on interior walls.
If the fridge just isn’t reaching cool enough temps, the compressor or condenser coil could be to blame. While a faulty compressor may need to be replaced, condenser coils often just need to be cleaned thoroughly to function optimally again.
Refrigerator is Leaking
Water leaking from a GE refrigerator can usually be traced back to malfunctions with the water inlet valve, ice maker, or door seal. The issue could also involve either a clogged water line or defrost drain.
Water lines and defrost drains with blockages can be thawed or cleaned to get them working again. Water inlet valves, ice makers, or door seals, however, require a bit more examination and may need replacement or repair.
GE Washer & Dryer Repair
A working washer and dryer make life easier for everyone. But when they’re not working properly, getting them to operate normally can be like figuring out a puzzle. Luckily, we can solve it for you.
If you have experienced any of the issues below, here are some suggestions.
Controls Don’t Work
When the machine won’t turn on or the controls don’t work, first verify that there isn’t a power issue in your home. A tripped breaker or a faulty electrical system could be the reason your appliance is not working.
Other causes could be a faulty lid switch or control board, which will likely require a replacement.
Does Not Spin or Agitate
A washer that won’t spin and/or agitate likely has a defective drive belt, motor, or transmission.
The specific costs for replacing these parts depend on your model, but in general, a faulty transmission is the most serious problem out of the three. It bears the biggest responsibility for initiating your machine’s spinning or agitating feature. Without it, your machine is inoperable.
Water Won’t Drain
If you notice that the water in your washer isn’t draining, your drain hose may be clogged, loose, or damaged. If this is the case, it should be removed from the washer, inspected, and flushed out.
Alternatively, malfunctioning drain pumps and control boards tend to need replacement, as they are essential to making sure that the water drains at the appropriate cycle time.
Machine is Noisy
Unusual noises coming from your washer or dryer may be unsettling, but sometimes the solution is as easy as making sure that your laundry load is evenly distributed in the machine.
In other instances, worn parts like bearings or drive motors may require replacement.
Clothes Won’t Dry
When your clothes don’t seem to dry in a timely manner or at all, you may just need to clean your dryer’s vent.
While malfunctioning heating elements and control boards aren’t as easy to remedy as cleaning out a vent, proper installation of new parts can make your appliance function like new.
GE Dishwasher Repair
In our experience, the most common complaints with GE dishwashers entail issues with leaking, cleaning, and the control panel. The good news is that some of these problems can be fixed quite easily.
Doesn’t Clean Dishes Well
When you are inserting cups and bowls into your dishwasher, be sure to load them with the dirty side facing downward. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a pool of dirty water resting inside your dishes.
If you’re loading your dishes the correct way, it may be best to have your local Mr. Appliance professional check for faulty components such as the spray arm, pump, or valve.
If your dishwasher seems to be leaking, there are some things that you can check before calling an appliance professional.
Verify that the door seal is intact. If it is not, water could be seeping through during a wash cycle. It will ultimately need to be replaced if it’s too worn.
Did you load the dishwasher with too many dishes? Doing so can cause an overflow that may mimic a leak.
If these solutions don’t solve the problem, your dishwasher pump, hose, or spray arm may need replacing. It’s also possible that your appliance was installed incorrectly.
Control Panel or Buttons Don’t Work
Refer to your GE manual to ensure that you are operating the control panel properly.
If you are operating everything correctly, contact one of our skilled appliance pros to diagnose and fix the problem.
GE Range & Oven Repair
When your stove and/or oven stop working, it can cause your entire daily routine to be in disarray. Below are three common complaints we encounter with these appliances.
Burners Don’t Ignite Well
The burners on gas models take longer to ignite and extinguish shortly after, or they don’t ignite at all.
Although you can attempt to unplug the appliance and clean it underneath the burners, you have to ensure that all the wiring is reconnected properly. For this reason, you may want to schedule an appointment with your local appliance professional instead.
Touchpad Doesn’t Work
GE ovens have touchpads that may not function properly at times. If you are sure that you are not experiencing power issues in your home, verify that the child locks are not activated.
If you’ve checked these two things and still have touchpad issues, you may need to call a certified appliance pro to have your control board replaced.
Oven Doesn’t Heat
This malfunction will likely require that you call an appliance professional. At the very least, your ignitor may need to be cleaned. More costly fixes include repairing or replacing the ignitor.
GE Microwave Repair
Your microwave is an important appliance for an efficient kitchen. It’s a real-time saver and essential for preparing quick meals and reheating leftovers. So, for safety and convenience, you want to make sure that it’s functioning well.
If you’re experiencing any of the problems listed below, read on for some suggested fixes.
Doesn’t Fully Heat Food
If your food isn’t fully heated, verify that the turntable is rotating properly.
If there is no issue with the turntable, you could be dealing with a larger problem. Your microwave’s internal mechanisms — such as the magnetron or waveguide cover — which produce microwaves may be damaged. Schedule an online appointment with one of our service professionals for an accurate diagnosis.
Door Won’t Close
Food or debris may be caught in the door, preventing it from closing properly. Clean your microwave door thoroughly to see if it fixes the problem.
If the issue persists, there is a high probability that your appliance’s door latch, door seal, or door hinge may need to be replaced.
Touchpad Doesn’t Work
Consult your microwave’s appliance manual and perform a reset. If this doesn’t work, check to make sure that your appliance has an adequate supply of power.
If none of these issues apply, you may be dealing with a defective control board that needs replacement.
GE Garburator Repair
When your garburator doesn’t work properly, it could produce some foul odours and cause drainage problems. Consider the suggestions below to solve some common GE garburator complaints.
Water Dripping from Garburator
Leaking from your garburator is usually due to a misaligned connection or a damaged part. It is best to enlist the help of a certified appliance professional to check your drain line’s connection and for potential damage.
Blades are Jammed
If your disposal blades are jammed, it could be due to two possible causes. Either your appliance is overstuffed with food particles and not getting enough water during the grinding process, or your motor is too weak to provide the power that the blades need to break up food. It’s also possible that food, an object, or other debris is wedged between the blades.
Contact your local Mr. Appliance professional for a more thorough inspection and repair of your garburator.
Burning Smell or Loud Noise
The blades, motor, or bearings could all be responsible for the odour or noise that you’re experiencing. Depending on how you use your appliance, at least one of the three parts may need to be replaced.
Water Backs Up in the Sink
This issue is usually caused by a blockage of some sort. Whether it’s a debris-filled drain line or an excessive amount of food, it isn’t difficult to clog this appliance. Before you call a professional to remedy the problem, try putting less food down your garburator, flushing with water from your sink as you do so. And whenever you run your garburator, make sure you are running water from your sink through it at the same time.
