Re: GE model TFX24FA side by side

If solution #1 fixes the problem, but it happens again, then check to see if you have water leaking from the ice maker area. I had a similar problem with my same model, and found that the ice maker water fill tube was leaking where connects to the connector in the back wall of the freezer. Water was leaking onto the freezer coils, causing it to go into defrost for long periods and both the freezer and fridge would warm up.

Getting to the fill tube is not an easy job. If you just pull it out without disassembling the fan compartment, you will probably not be able to get it back in.

You will likely want to move your food, unplug the fridge and thaw it out. Disassembling the top compartment on the inside of the back wall of the freezer is a tedious and time consuming task. After that I was able to just pull the tube out and turn it around and push it back in for a snug fit. You might consider using a sealer.

Re: GE model TFX24FA side by side

Look in he back of the freezer section, if you see ice on the back wall then I would suggest defrosting the whole unit overnight and restarting to see if this makes a difference to the fridge section. If it does then you have a problem with the defrost cycle of the unit, if it doesnt then you may have a fan gone. We normally suggest defrosting first in case a door got left ajar. However if it does pull back down you will need to keep a close eye on the unit for several weeks. Hope this helps.

GE Refrigerator-Freezer side works fine/Refrigerator side not ok

You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the inside back panel of the freezer. See if there is ice built up. If so, you have a problem with the defrost. 85% of the time, it's caused by a bad heater. It could be the termination thermostat, timer or fan. If the ice is built up. Take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. If you want, you can now check the heater and termination thermostat. It's a closed switch that opens on the rise. If you fix it your self or not, To save your food. You can replace the panel and turn the fridge back on, it will operate correctly for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to either get the part and fix it or for someone to get out and repair.

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?

On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

Freezer won't go below 10 and fridge goes between 40 and 60 degrees

Ensure the condenser is not clogged with dust or other debris.
Ensure the condenser fan (usually found in back) is turning when the fridge is running.
