Ge refer not blowing cold
You said, your GE TBX 23Z refer has been working fine. moved it to assist in tile
install. place back, plugged in starts to blow cool then after 2 hrs it
blows room temp. It is clean dust free in under carriage and has plenty
of air space. Fan blows very strong. I do hear a click and then 2 -4
seconds later another click. This continues every couple minutes.
Sounds like poss the compressor is trying to engage? Not sure? It is
older but a very nice unit and blows well, any ideas?
It sounds like the compressor to me!
in a fridge that is ten years old or more it is not worth the investment of putting good money in to bad.
The newer fridges use a lot less power and your utility bill will go down
It will pay for itself in only a few years!
Here is an article I just read that you may find useful and interesting!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
