If this is the model I am thinking about, you have the same compressor for each side. There should be a vent or opening that you can adjust to let cool air inside the refrigerator. Find it and adjust. You may have this opening blocked by something. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

I have a GE refrigerator GFSS6KKYSS Model. Serial #: LS900091 It appears that there is ice on the back of the refrigerator and water is collecting on the floor of the compartment. What is the problem and...


This is a rather unique refrigerator in that there is a seperate evaportator (cooling coil) for the refrigerator section and the freezer section, where as almost all other refrigerators only have coils in the freezer section and use a fan to blow some of the cold air into the refrigerator section. This design will prevent cross contamination of odors between fresh foods and freezer sections, and allow lower humidity freezer at the same time as higher humidity fresh foods. All good things.

That said,..... you need to take the cover off the back wall from inside the fresh foods section and thaw out the defrost drain locted at the bottom of those cooling coils. If I remember correctly, there are a couple hidden screws, and the back panel needs to be pryed off using a putty knife, I think you will find 4 small arrows / pointers for the spots to pry at. With cover removed, use a turkey baster with warm water until the water flows out the drain.

GE Model TBX18JISERWH This refrigerator is a freezer on top/refr on bottom.....the problem is that the freezer section is working fine,but the refrig isn't cooling enough. The temo gets up to 48/49...


Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice or is cold . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Sounds like the defrost timer is not tracking the time properly. The unit needs to defrost once every 6-8 hrs. in order to work. Make sure the inside (evaporator) fan is running ok. If it rund for a few days and then warms up in the refrigerator section (coil iced), then the defrost timer is the culprit.

GE side by side refrigerator and freezer not working


Time to unplug the refrigerator. We need to check the compressor, start capacitor and start relay. If you do not unplug until we solve the problem the internal overload inside the compressor will be damaged. I am ready to help you on this just let me know, Sea Breeze

Bottom Freezer


This is the way it is supposed to work. Modern refregerators are designed to keep the freezer temp between 0 - 10 degrees. As long as it is not freezing food in the refrigerator compartment all is well. On most units the only real cooling control is in the refregerator. This is the one the cycles the compressor. The freezer control usually only controls the amount of cold air allowed into the fridge. All cooling coils are usually in the freezer. it just pushes cold air into the fridge
