Question about GE Profile PDS22SCRL Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

GE Fridge Bottom Freezer, works and temp is still warm in Fridge

It is a GE mo# PDS22SCPARSS and the problem is that the fan in the freezer is working great and there is no ice up problem now that I just replaced the control borad. But its weird because when you have the freezer open the air flow coming out into the fridge is good, but when you close the freezer it stops and won't let anything out. The display is checking out visually ( No brown spots on the circut board ) and the temp seems to be right. So what else can it be besides the Damper, but even when left out or disconected this problem is there, even with the hole part out...No air flow when the freezer door closes....PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I LOSE ALL MY FOOD!!!

On most bottom freezer models I have seen, there are vents on the bottom of the refrigerator box under the crisper that return from the refrigerator to the freezer. This allows air blown from the freezer into the refrigerator to return to freezer to be cooled again. It would seem these return ducts are clogged, it might be possible if you have had your refrigerator turned to a very cold setting. When you open the freezer door, you are letting air to be drawn in from the room to make up the air being blown into the refrigerator.

Pull out your crisper drawers and try to locate these vents. Check for debris or obstructions. If you don't see any, try letting the vents sit open for a couple hours to defrost. You could try speeding up the process by blowing through the vents with a hairdryer but I might advise against this because the hot air might deform the foam insulation if you are not very careful.

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

Freezer is cold, fridge is warm; replaced main board already


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer works, but fridge is warm. Water had been draining from freezer into fridge, and freezing up in the bottom of fridge prior to this.


Sounds as if your evaporator fan located in the fridge part of the appliance is out. This fan is usually located by the temp control switch. If you open the fridge and listen you should hear the fan humming , if not, then replace the fan. Take the model and serial number to an appliance store and they should be able to get you the part. Good luck on your repairs.

Freezer is too cold (-14 degrees) and fridge is too warm (51 degrees). The freezer keeps gettting colder but the fridge part keeps getting warmer.

The temp sensor for the freezer may be reading the warm air in the fridge so is not cutting the compressor off.

GE fridge is warm and broken; the freezer is cold though.


Air circulation problem. Evaporator fan in freezer moves some air to refrig. Either fan is not working or air passages are blocked with ice. If ice found, then a defrost component failure has occurred. Fix what you find.

The freezer keeps getting too warm, it was 30 degrees, came back down to 0, and is now up to 14 degrees.


Could be faulty temp sensors, faulty defrost timer/temp sensor, or failed _condenser_ coil fan (under/in back of the fridge).

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
