    THE BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO DISPENSE THE ICE HAD BEEN BEEPING FOR AGES BUT NOW HAS STOPPED.THE FAN AT THE BASE OF THE BACK OF FRIDGE IS BLOWING.THE BOTTOM SHELVES OF THE FREEZER WILL FREEZE THE TOP SHELVES WILL ONLY MAKE ITEMS COLD AND THE FRIDGE PART IS NOT COLD AT ALL.IT SEEMS THAT THE COLDNESS IS NOT BEING DISTRIBUTED AROUND THE FRIDGE...DOES THAT MAKE SENSE??

The unit is not defrosting because it needs one of three parts that make the evaporator defrost every about 8 to 10 hours depending on the refrigerator, 1. defrost thermostat which snaps on the evaporator coil behind the rear panel in the freezer, 2. defrost heater which is also behind the rear panel in the freezer, the heater melts the frost on evaporator, 3. defrost timer or defrost control which is either on the back of the fridge behind a small panel that must be removed to access to the control or it's in the fresh food section.

    sounds like u have a fan motor problem

    not sure if just froze up because of frost..you need to defrost with hair dryer.. with fan not blowing that might be your only problem.. evap will freeze up with out fan blowing... also if theres problem with defrost system evap. will freeze up Try defrosting and see if fan will come on. If not you may have to replace, trying to upload a diagram that may help

My ge refrigerator side by side gsh22jfta ww freezer is cold enough but the fridge is not there is a vent between freezer and fridge, but I don't feel any cold air comming from it. Plz help me


The "damper" that open and closes is not working. It is controlled electronically with a thermostat. Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy

GE Profile Refridgerator side warm, freezer ok?


Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.

I have a GE GSS25LGMF side x side refrigerator. The compressor never shuts off and everything in the fridge section is freezing. Is this a thermostat problem?


it could be the damper part number WR49X10091,if the damper door isn't closing correctly cold air will just keep coming into the fridge side from the freezer,usually the damper door opens to let the cold air in when the fridge starts warming up and when it gets cold enough the door will close but your damper is stuck open

My GE Adora side by side refrig. has stopped making ice and I am having a hard time regulating the settings on it. The freezer is too cold and the refrig. section isn't cold enough. I also have noticed...


Defroster circuit/timer has failed.

The water line to the icemaker has probably frozen,so no ice. The cooling coils are in the freezer, and the cold air moves to the fridge via vents and circulation fan.

When it all ices up, no air gets to fridge, fridge gets warm.

Many models have a mechanical defroster timer located under the lower front kick panel. Manually rotate the timer until you hear the compressor stop.

Defroster heater then should come on and you hear scorch/hiss/gurgle of defrost sounds. If the timer is working, the fridge should come back on after about a half hour or so.

Sometimes timer fails, sometimes heater element fails. There is also a defrost thermostat that's part of the heater assembly.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
