The most likely location for finding a troubleshooting manual for a GE freezer is on the GE Appliances website. The site contains detailed information concerning all of its freezer products, including downloadable Use and Care manuals containing troubleshooting sections.
The Use and Care manuals available through the GE Appliances site are available in PDF format for downloading and saving to a user's computer. The troubleshooting section in the downloaded manual contains a list of tips for common problems, along with possible solutions.
The tips in the manuals are stripped down, lacking technical details on how to perform a troubleshooting operation. For example, one tip for the freezer not operating or having a power-out issue suggests replacing the fuse or resetting the breaker only. It does not, however, go into detail as to how to perform such an operation.
Along with troubleshooting tips, the manuals include a list of normal operating conditions that are often mistaken for operational issues. These conditions can include issues such as, the sound of water dripping on no-frost models into the drain pan, the sound of the compressor motor operating or warmed cabinet exteriors caused by heat transferring from the freezer to the outside of the unit.
