Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

GE side by Side - dead, again

GE Side by Side - died 2 months ago. No cooling, but the fans worked, and compressor relay looked ok - recommendation was to replace the motherboard, which I did. There was clearly a burnt out circuit. It worked great for another 5 weeks. Now it is completely dead again.

Lights are on - so it has power.
Fans are NOT turning on (neither back nor inside)
Compressor is not even attempting to turn on - no clicking or anything.
Not a defrost problem - tried a full 24 hr unplug and re-plug - didn't help.
No visually obvious issues on the motherboard this time.

Thoughts? I'm about to order a new fridge. 6 yr old, out of warranty.

    I have the same problem with my defrost timer. How long do you need to leave the timer off?

Check defrost timer . plug in and turn timer manualy and see if unit starts running. This means it was in a defrost mode which occurs twice daily.

depending on your model. if its just a reg, side by side, you more than likely need a relay/ overload which is located on the compressor,the relay only works after it cools down. unplug ref from wall, remove rear cover to see and touch compressor to see if it starts when you plug back in to the wall. if it doesnt start in three attempts. replace it. easy way to diagnose..

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm




Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

My frigidaire side by side quit cooling about two months ago i un pluged it cleand everything and let it sit for about 3 days pluged it back in and it worked for almost 2 months now it is not cooling again...


there sunds to me like there is a problem with you defrost cycle.how ever how need to look for any ice build up in the bottom side of the freezer section.
while the unit is the cooling mode open the freezer door and listen for a fan running if you do not hear a fan running you may need to replace it the door switch should be held in while you are checking this.

then i would alos look at the overload relay and start switch on the compressor.

My GE side-by-side refrigerator & freezer is not cooling.


Good day,
If it's been on for a while, the compressor should be warm. If the compressor has a relay box mounted on it's side, remove the cover, and pull off the relay, and overload and take them to an appliance parts house to be tested. If defective replace. If O.K. then .....
The compressor windings are out and the compressor is bad, or the motherboard on the back rear of the machine under a cover has failed.
Either case requires a service tech to properly test.

Fridge is not cold and freezer is not cold


f the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.

First, answer these questions:

  • Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.”


  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.


Next, see if the compressor motor is running

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor


  • The Thermostat


  • The overload, relay, or capacitor


  • The defrost timer


  • The condenser fan motor

Refrigerator not colling properly


Let it run until you have a problem again then look at the back wall of the inside of the freezer, if there is frost then it's not defrosting and that would be your problem (usually the defrost heater). If you don't see frost then you need to determine if the compressor is running or not. It's possible to hear the two fans run, but not the compressor. If the compressor is running, along with the 2 fans, then it is a sealed system problem and usually not worth fixing. If it's not running you'll need to check the compressor start relay on the side of the compressor. It is possible for a bad compressor to cause the relay to fail, so replacing it may or may not get you going again.

Side by side stopped working but clicling noises every second two.


Ok the motherboard is malfunctioning. Ive observed this exact problem before. Replace the board and all will be normal again. If you keep lettig it click and click it may finally kill that relay that you descibed to me or even worse the compressor itself.
