Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
I'm really getting stumped on this one. The refrig and freezer are both too cold (refrigerator is in the 20's all the time). I've replaced the thermostat and no change. The controls seem to make no difference. I can't make it any warmer. It runs nearly continuously. The damper attached to the freezer control knob is okay and working. I'm assuming (maybe wrongly) that since it cools too well that it is not low on freon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. One specific question: the thermocouple on the thermostat is coiled within an inch of the thermostat body. I left it this way. Should I have stretched it out or repositioned it?
To answer your question that is how the coil is supposed to be wrapped. Just because the unit stays really cold has nothing to do with low freon. Low freon you would ice up and the system would be warm. This sounds like your really is bad and needs to be replaced, due to the fact that nothing is telling the copressor to shut down. This is how it works. The thermostat sends a signal to the thermocouple, which in return sends a signal to the relay which sends a signal to the compressor to run or stop. If the relay goes bad it will let the compressor run all the time. Please rate if you are satisfied
