Hello.
How long did you wait after installing the fan? It takes 24 hours for the unit to recuperate.
If the fan hasn't been working for a long time, you may have not noticed it was running a lot, but with the new fan you can hear it. Let me know if you don't think this is the case and I can guide you through some other options.

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.

Refridgerator is only cold on the bottom. Fridge is a side by side and both sides are doing the same thing. Top shelves are not cold or freezing, but the bottom ones are. What is causing this?


Good day,
The common reason for this is the fan motor behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment is not running.
With the machine on and running, open the freezer door. You should hear the fan running.
If not the motor can be accessed by removing the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Replacement is a nuts and bolts operation.

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)

Top refridgerator does not get cold but the bottom freezer works fine


Most of these have a fan that blows the cold air for the freezer into the refrigiator section. If the fan quits running you will experience your problem.

Fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold

Refridgerator/Freezer will not get cold


Check to see if the refrigerator is clean at the condensor at the bottom or at the top of the unit. All fans running inside and outside the unit? Door gaskets sealing tightly. Put a dollar bill between the door gasket and cabinet and clost the door. Slight drag ok. No rsistane, bad gasket. No solution at this point, call for service.
