If there is frost at the back of the freezer compartment then the refrigerator may be frost blocked or the defroster heaters may have failed. Turn the freezer control to number zero (off). Leave the freezer door open so that the blower will run. Leave this way for several hours until all signs of frost on the back are gone and ther is no water dripping from behind the back panel. Now try to run the refrigerator normally on settings of 5 or 6. If the freezer cools normally then the problem may be solved. If the frost builds up again over several days then the defroster heaters will probably need to be replaced.

Ge tfx25jrbb-ww refridgerator not cooling


The first thing to check is if you can hear the fan running inside the freezer. This not only keeps the whole freezer cold it alspo circulates air down to the refrigerator keeping it cool as well.

I have a ge refridgerator gss25k side by side. thefridge/freezer are not cooling. the bottom of the fridge freezes and the top is warm.


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. A fan circulates air to cool the refrigerator.
The inside fan has stopped working or is blocked by ice.
Defrost the freezer. If the fridge starts to work properly then you have an auto defrost problem. If the fridge still does not work then there is a faulty fan.
A technician can help you there

The refridgerator is not cooling - coils are not iced over. what should I try now? Both sides not working properly. This is a side by side model.

My refrigerator turns on and off i hear clicking sound.the compressor dont stops and then after a few seconds it runs again


my parents have a ge refridgerator tfx27e that is not cooling as of this morning. we had repair place out and they said the compressor is bad. per his words, he tested it and said electric is going to the compressor, but when it tries to turn on, something inside is stopping it so it won't run, needs new compressor.

the issue is, this is in a custom kitchen and the fridge has wood paneling on the front and matches everything nicely. i'm afraid a new fridge will never work with the panels made for this one?

it it worth fixing? i'm also pretty handy, but the repair guy said it's a 5 hour job. advice?

The refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold but I can hear the motor running.


Hello there:
If the compressor is running and you can hear it than you are going to have the refrigerant recharged in the unit.
If you continue to run the unit without refrigerant you will end up with the compressor quitting and this you do not want ok?
I hope this has been very helpful for you ok?

GE regrigerator not cooling or freezing


first defrost it by turning it off for 1\2 to 1 full day,put towels on the floor to catch the water,when a refridgerator gets frosted up it cant circulate the cold air,and if its one with the freezer on top then the cold air cant blow down into the refridgerator,check inside the refridgerator at the top where the thermostat cover is there will be a vent hole,it could have ice built up so much that its totally blocking the air flow.This usually happens when hot food is put in the refridgerator and causes steam,or the refridgerator runs too much caused by bad door seals,or the cooling fins on the back or bottom underneath plugged with dust and the freon gets too hot causing condensation inside the freezer which causes it to frost up,a plugged drain hole will back up water and freeze,the fan in the freezer may have stopped working,which is about a $60.00 part,and finally a bad defrost element (about a $40.00 part)which is a glass tube inside the freezer with a coiled up wire inside it that heats up at certain times to defrost any ice build up,(which is the last thing to check)
