Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
After a little research here on fixya I thought I only had a defrost problem but am concerned I am dealing with a bigger issue now.
I started by cleaning the coils under the fridge fboth from the front and back side. Tested the defrost timer and it seems to be working. Finally I removed back panel on freezer to find bottom half of coils frozen over. I completely defrosted the coils using a hair dryer and turned it back on. it began to freeze over again the next day. Purchased and installed new defrost heaters from local appliance dealer and thought i had this thing licked. Two days later and still only getting a freezer temp of about 30 degrees and a fridge temp of 42.
The partial frost pattern is an indication of low refrigerant, restriction or bad compressor. if the unit is under 5 years old this repair will probably be under warranty thru GE. if out of warranty then you are looking in most cases between 200-500 dollars for repair. good luck Thanx peyton
