SOURCE: GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a 3 year old GE side by side that isn't cold.

Sounds like a defrost problem or an evaporator fan problem . I would suggest you have a professional check it for you to find the problem and then do the repair yourself . If the fan isn't working , probably a main control board problem and not the actual fan ,which is costly . Also , possible thermistor problem which takes experience to diagnose . Buying parts without knowing which is bad can be realy costly on GE refrigerators .

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

SOURCE: MY GE TFX30PRY still cools but doesn't get

Since you say that it still cools, you need to start out with a thorough cleaning of the condenser grill. If it the air flow is blocked or the condenser grill is extremely dirty or clogged with pet hair, then the unit won't be able to dispel the heat buildup cause by the coolant running through the compressor.

I have found that if you use an air compressor blowing from the rear and a vacuum from the front works pretty good.

During heavy frost everything froze solid even drainage pipe. I notice that my freezer (top half) is not cooling at all. All food has gone soggy. Fridge is just cool.Will it right itself once kitchen...


It's possible the unit is not working correctly as it expects the air temperature to be around 18 degrees centigrade. If too cold, they can go into a defrost cycle.

If your food is not cold enough - but your room is frozen - can you pack your freezer items in snow? Alternatively, move the unit to a warmer area.

Sounds strange - but modern units don't work well in the cold !

Frezzer not cold enough..Defrosted..thought fan was frozen


It is possible that the auto defrosting is not working. There could be a problem in the timer unit of the fridge which is not switching the timer to heat and defrost after the set time.
Check this out, the fan has freezed up due to the build up of the frost and must be checked for good performance or if damaged.
Check wiring to the timer unit.
Hope this tip helps.

Does not cook even . put 2 items in cooker one well done other one half,


were both items the same density? Was one maybe thawed more that the other? A microwave cooks by rapidly heating the water molecules within the product that you are heating. If you heat two of the same product, it should cook them both evenly, however say you put in a frozen hamburger and a thawed hamburger, the frozen one will only begin to defrost while the thawed one will actually cook

Freezer gets ice on back wall but wont freeze , fridge either


Hi Brian,

I recommend that you set the freezer to a WARMER setting to avoid getting ice on the back of the freezer. The ice is preventing good air flow over the cooling plate and therefore is not keeping the items in your freezer cold enough. You will need to remove the ice - which can be a daunting task. If you are able to store all your frozen items somewhere else for a while, it would be best to let the whole thing thaw out. I can't find any specs on that fridge, but i would guess that it does not have an automatic defrost, which is, in part, what is causing your problem.

If you are in a humid climate this will happen more frequently - especially if you have the unit outdoors or in an unairconditioned area.

GE Freezer Not Freezing


I am not an expert, but if the defrost heater is not working, then maybe when it was unpluged the coils didn't completly unthaw. If not, the freezer still will not cool properly.
