GE TPX24BPBGBB fresh food section won't cool

Tech out a few weeks ago found the water hose to the ice maker frozen. He unthawed it and icemaker worked again.....since then, not sure if it was this way when tech was here or not, fresh food section won't get much lower than 50 degrees F, but freezer seems fine at -10 degrees F. I've got the freezer temp control and the fresh food temp control all the way to the right (coldest) for several days, but no help.

Re: GE TPX24BPBGBB fresh food section won't cool

Have you noticed any ice built up on the rear freezer wall? it is very likely that you have a defrost problem situation,IE: Heater,Defrost Thermostat,Defrost Timer any failure in these components will cause an icing problem and therefore you will not get sufficient air flow to the Food Compartment

Why isn't it making ice?

Is ice maker getting water? If not check the solenoid that feeds the icemaker for operation. And also check freezer temp - icemakers will not work at freezer temps higher than 10 degrees.

Ge refrigeration model 20-25 icemaker not making ice

Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

Model PS26PSTASS SN GL 432433 Behind the bottom drawer the fan unit is frozen. Also the ice maker has water running out and freezing along with it doesn't freeze the cubes properly or discharge them...

The frozen fan is from a bad thermister located located behind the fresh food evaporator coil. The icemaker could be getting too much water or not level. The icemaker can be leveled by placing a washer behind the mounting stud.

Water leaking inside refrig below ice maker


Most times this is a plugged defrost drain system. The defrost heater in the freezer section melts the frost and changes it to water, this water is suppose to flow down a drain system. If this drain system is restricted or plugged the water will leak inside the refrigerator. The drain system starts in the freezer section with a tray built under the evaporator coil. The water is funneled through a small hose into a cup in the top middle of the fresh food section ( not on all models, but this is the most common way ), from there, the water is directed out the back wall to a drain hose that runs down the back of the refrigerator into a condensing tray. The heat created under the fridge makes the water evaporate and disappear. Some of the cups ( in the top back of the fresh food section ) can be removed for cleaning. A turkey baster can be used to help clean out the drain system. Fill the baster with hot water and "blast" it into the drain hose to help flush it out. A piece of wire or pipe cleaner can also be pushed into the drain hoses to help clean then out. On a S x S style of fridge the drain system is in the bottom back of the freezer section and often you will have to remove the evaporator cover to access the drain hole. You can clean this out in the same manner as previously mentioned, but because of the water leaking into the freezer instead of the fresh food section you will have to remove the ice build up to clean out the drain system. For some reason Whirlpool has found a need to "hide" the drain hose inside the walls now ( Whirlpool makes many of the Kenmore branded refrigerators ) on there top freezer refrigerators. This makes accessing the drain hose to flush it out more difficult, no cup inside the fresh food section, no hose down the outside back wall and the only access is inside the freezer section behind the back false wall and under the evaporator coils.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

The Icemaker is not working

When the door was open thawing and freezing occurred and your ice maker is now frozen up. there may even be ice in the water line feeding the ice maker.

Empty the entire side by side and unplug it for 24 hours with both doors open. This will solve your problem.

Your cold and frozen food will have to be stored elsewhere during this process so nothing spoils.

Freezer not cooling/making ice.

At this moment I think that you need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the ice maker to stop the leaking. Any extra water inside the freezer will make it harder for the defrost to remove the moisture. While the ice maker is out I want you to look to see if water is still leaking out the fill tube that feeds the ice maker tray. If it is then we found the reason. If not then we need to check some of the parts on the ice maker. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze
