I have a ge profile bottom freezer style that is 3 years old. The bottom left corner of the freezer is oozing yellow glue from inside the white outer panel. I have to keep using goo gone to keep it from opening smoothly. What can I do about this?

** ge profile bottom freezer **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** The bottom left corner of the freezer is oozing yellow glue from inside the white outer panel. **

The white outer panel of the refrigerator cabinet??

I don't know where "glue" could come from. Uncured foam cabinet insulation might appear glue-like but I've never heard of a case of such oozing out. It might be possible though.

If that is what is actually occurring there would be no way to correct it as it would also mean the insulation is not properly in place and may not be functioning as it is suppose to. In such a case the refrigerator should be replaced by the manufacturer IMO.

Is it still under warranty?

the model number is PDS22MCRBWW. It has a five year on any part of the sealed refrigerating system. Serial: VGO48196 I dont know if it would cover this. Yes, from the white outer panel. I will call but if you have any other ideas that would be appreciated. Thanks

There shouldn't be anything on/in your model which would account for what you described.

** It has a five year on any part of the sealed refrigerating system. I dont know if it would cover this. **

What you described would have nothing to do with the refrigeration system. If it happens to be a known problem to GE (and you can get them to admit it), they might do something for you even if it is past the one year warranty period otherwise you would be responsible for the service.

It will likely need to be inspected by a GE factory authorized service depot to determine exactly what the leaking substance is. Make sure the substance is visible for their visit.

you say it's 3 years old.

is this something that has been going on since day one or a problem that has started recently?
