Freezer coils will not defrost. Defrost thermostat is good.

Sounds like coolant is low in the system. Most fridges use a sealed system with refridgerant.
You may be able to have a sears guy or some other applicance house call repairman come and recharge it.

Also.. check that there is enough clearance around the fridge and that dust isn't clogging up the heat transfer pipes (that grid on the back.. or below the fridge) These guys need a lot of airflow to remove heat.

Why is freezer/Frig at 51/59 degrees with both fans running?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRT18G6JB6, is not cooling well. I also see that you have checked the gaskets, cleaned the condenser coil, and manually defrosted your refrigerator. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it is not cooling. Hope this is helpful,

-Best Regards-

GE fridge/freezer on but no cold air


The main board on the back of the unit has gone bad or in lockout. Try unplugging unit for about 30 seconds. Then plug it back in. If it doesn't start the board is bad. wr55x10942 at about 169.00. Hope this helps. Very common GE problem

Refrigerator cools, but not cool enough, even with temp adjustment turned to coldest setting. Freezer only gets down to 0. Fridge at 44 degrees


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..


check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Hi eapiano,

I'm Harvey th Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your GErefrigerator does not seem to be cooling as before. You turned up the temperature control from 5 to 7 and also the freezer control higher, but it still doesn't seem to be cold enough. You don't want to lose all your food especially in the freezer What can you do? The model number is: TFX22PRX

First, make sure the power is on. Then listen for the compressor motor. If you don't hear it then you have a compressor failure or an electrical failure inside. If you can then look to a bad thermostat. In the mean time get everything into coolers or neighbor"s fridg.
