That is actually a "tc" error code.

This error means that the display board isn\'t communication correctly with the temperature control sensors which is why it\'s giving the error. It may stop cooling so you need to keep an eye out. Either way, try to unplug the unit for 5 minutes (don\'t plug it in early it\'s hard on the compressor). Plug it back in and see if the error goes away. If it doesn\'t, you need to order and replace your display control board because it\'s just not working correctly unfortunately.Here is the board to order.

SOURCE: GE TFX27PF refrigerator and freezer still not getting cold enough

the partial frost pattern is an indication of low refrigerant, restriction or bad compressor. if the unit is under 5 years old this repair will probably be under warranty thru GE. if out of warranty then you are looking in most cases between 200-500 dollars for repair. good luck Thanx peyton

SOURCE: PTS25LBM GE Profile Defrost cycle messed up

The GE Profile Refrigerator has circuit boards and sensors are in the freezer that sends a signal to the circuit board to begin and end the defrost cycle. It is very possible the sensor or the circuit board are defective and will need replaced. I will help you solve this if you like. This refrigerator is complex and will take more discussion with you to complete the repair, I am here to help, let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: coils keeping freezing up again

Yep , replace the # 4 and # 5 thermistors . The # 4 , is the small , white 1" long torpedo looking piece , clipped to the top of the coils on the left side , in the freezer , with 2 white wires going to it . This tells the control board , the temp of the coils , when to defrost , and when to stop defrosting . The # 5 thermistor , is located at the bottom left rear of the freezer ( or behind a small oval grill on the right ) with 2 white wires going to it . This thermistor , tells the control board , the freezer temp . The part number for both is WR55X10025 .

How do I manually defrost the unit

Worst case to defrost, clean everything out food wise and unplug and leave doors open until it all melts. It sounds like the coils are dirty so the unit keeps running until it freezes over. Try cleaning all the coils, the compressor, etc, and when you try it make sure that there isn't anything in the way of the airstream

I have a GE gsl25jfta bs side by side, the freezer melts ice box then freezes it again.. Making a block of ice

Sounds like you could have a bad mother board. Very common problem with the GE models. It will shut compressor off, than everything starts to melt, then it comes back on. Replace main control board and it should resolve your issue.

My GE side-by-side is not cooling.

The electronic control board is probably your culprit. These control boards control the compressor, fans and defrost. Look for any burned spots on the printed circuit bout it could be just bad.

How do I troubleshoot GE GSS25LGPABB sbs: no freezer, now no fridge?

everything runs through the computer board on the back of your machine,part number wr55x10942.pull your machine out away from the wall and on the back right side bottom you'll see the cover for the board,unplug the machine and remove the cover,look at the board,you'll see black relays on the board,the new board has all 7 relays,if your board doesn't have all 7go here and see it most likely this is your problem.everything runs through the board,have you noticed your fans running at different speeds or anything else like that thing it sounds like you have no compressor,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer over to the fridge side so if the freezer is down the fridge side is going down's a picture of the board
if you look at the diagram it tells you that if you jump out j8 and j11 the compressor should start,i've never done this but i did jump out j9 and j11 to check the defrost heater and thermostat.hope this helps you out and good luck,also if you do jump it out and the compressor doesn't run you can check the overload and relay on the compressor for continuity but most likely you have a bad computer board.

I have a model gss25lgmb bb. Im having issues with (couple of months) my fridge randomly stop cooling. Causing everything to defrost. My fan still seems to be on but not cooling or freezing. PLEASE HELP

If its not cooling or freezing then the compressor has to be checked.The compressor is the part which controls the cooling and freezing in the refrigerator.If the gas / refrigerant in the compressor gets low/ less then compressor will run more but it will not cool due to less refrigerant in compressor.In that case the compressor needs to be replaced. -------------- Also it can be faulty defrost assembly parts causing this issue.The thermostat is got faulty or the heater is not turning off.This also causes every thing to get defrosted.

The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site.------------

Before that you can try manual defrost reset procedure. The manual defrost reset procedure is as follows : ----First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again.Then go for replacing the parts.-------------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have ge side by side model PSS26SGPASS it just thawed out everything in freezer, reading tc in fridge side now, freezer 37 degrees fridge was up to 50 company coming purchased 6 yrs ago help!

I have the exact problem. My unit is 6 years old too - purchased in 2004. I have located, after cleaning the coil under the unit, this is not the source of the real problem. I took the upper cover off which houses the main logic board to find if I flicked the comp relay "compressor" the compressor then turned on. I took amp readings before and after they were .2 without the compressor running and 1.3 with the compressor on. The main board will need to be replaced. Personally I will try to locate the actual relay and replace it on the board if possible.

Not gitting cold at all but fan working and the coils are not froze up

Usually if the coils are not icing up you have a problem with either a freon leak or the compressor isnt pumping. The compressor might not be pumping do to several things including over heating. Check the fan behind the fridge and make sure it is running when the fridge is not in defrost. ( usually the freezer fan will be running when the compressor should be ) . Check to make sure the coils behind or under the fridge are cleaned of dust, etc. Is the compressor very hot to the touch? You also could have a relay or capacitor problem. Is the compressor running or does it click on and off? The worse case scenario is that there is a leak or that you have a seized up compressor. In either case its probably better to replace the fridge bc repairs would likely be expensive.
