    I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM FOR THE LAST ONE YEAR EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS ON A 2 YEAR OLD REFRIGERATOR. THE TEMP ON BOTH SIDES GOES UP, A THIN LAYER OF FROST FORMS AND WATER DISPENSER WOULDNT WORK. I WILL DEFROST THE WHOLE FRIDGE AND TURN THE PLUG OFF. WAIT FOR 6-8 HOURS AND PLUG IT BACK AGAIN AND IT WILL START WORKING. LAST FEW DAYS THE TRICK IS NOT WORKING AND I AM LOST. i MIGHT BE FORCED TO CALL GE SERVICE. I WOULD NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN.

Look in the freezer on the back wall if you see frost (looks like a thin layer of snow) you have a defrost problem . the cooling coils Behind the back freezer wall get cloged with frost and block the air flow to the ref side. The problem moast times is The defrost heater.

My GE TFX30PP is constantly running and doesn't turn off. The freezer is very cold but the frig side isn't cold enough. A repair guy put in a new "cold contol" sensor but it didn't help.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.
I would also clesan the condenser coils off.

Refridgerator side is set to 34 but temp reads 52 last night freezer was at 20 when set to 0 cleaned coil of dust now reads 0 but fridge side still wont come down it is a GE side by side


your evaporator coil in the freezer behind the rear panel is iced up and cold air cant flow thru ice,defrost the evaporator coil,then check continuity of the heater element under the coil,if its good,then suspect the defrost control,usually located in the refrige side on the upper area

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
