From your description, you have a bad evaporator fan motor. The part number for a replacement motor is #5304445861.This is not a direct replacement but is more reliable.Remove everything in the freezer, take off the back panels and you will see the fan.
If there is a large frost buildup on the coils and the fan is turning you have a defrost problem. If that is the case, please call me at 334-347-0000 and I will walk you through it.

SOURCE: Ice buildup on the coil and ice buildup on freezer floor

you will have to unclogg it..hot water/hairdryer..flexible tubing to push out the clog. the ice on evap coil bothers me though. do all the coils get frosty white(close the door for 10 minutes then check) I fear they aren't and you have a freon leak.

SOURCE: the lines inside my refrigerator freeze up with ice buildup

Replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat in the freezer section. They are located behind the freezer panel.

Freezer is iceing up and refrigerator is not getting cold.


You have a defrost circuitry problem. Bad timer,thermostat or element. If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can figure out which component is bad. you can visually check the defost element by taking the back cover off the freezer and looking at it after u defrost the evaporator

Ice buildup, not cooling well


The ice build up on the cooling coils prevents you fridge from cooling properly. You need to unplug it and allow the ice to melt. When the coils are free of ice, the fridge should work better. Hope this helps you.

Our GE Profile TPS24BPDA BS is no longer cooling in both the freezer and refridgerator portion. Please help:)


Check the evap coil at the back of the freezer for ice buildup... and that the evap fan is running.

Defrost if necessary.

Not cooling


side by side its an adaptive defrost or a evap fan
open the freezer, push the door button, if you can hear the fan, its the adap,,,
but you would want to inspect the defrost terminator as well.... but you can do that after you melt away the frost

Freezer section not freezing


If you only had ice buildup in one section of the evaporator you have a weak/inefficient compressor.
You need a new compressor or a new refrigerator.

I have an Amanda side by side, the fridge temp


Look in the freezer side for a ice buildup on the back wall.
Ice= defrost parts issue.
Check the fan in the freezer. Is it running?
Not running? Could be a defrost thermostat issue or a bad fan motor.
