Hello Matthew, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Error code EF commonly refers to an evaporator fan error. Either the evaporator fan is not spinning fast enough or not at all. It is possible that there is something contacting the fan blade, which this will trigger the error code as well. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your appliance.

CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR YOUR EVAPORATOR FAN RUNNING (INSIDE MOTOR). IF IT IS NOT RUNNING ... AND YOUR COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING. THE MOTOR OR DEFROST TEMENATION SWICTH COULD BE DEFECTIVE. IF NOTHING IS RUNNING ... TRY TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER(USUALLY LOCATED WHERE YOUR COLD CONTROLS ARE) YOU SHOULD SEE A SMALL HOLE WHERE YOU CAN MANUALLY TURN THE TIMER WITH A SCREW DRIVER.IT CAN ONLY TURN IN ONE DIRECTION. IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. CHECK TO SEE IF COMPRESSOR IN THE BACK IS RUNNING ... IF IT ISNT AND IS "HOT" (BE CAREFULL) SEE IF THE CONDENSER MOTOR NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING ... IF NOT ... THE COND. MOTOR IS BAD ... THAT MOTOR RUNS IF POWER IS GOING TO THE COMPRESSOR ALWAYS. IF COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND NOT RUNNING AND COND. FAN IS RUNNING .... UN PLUG FRIG AND WAIT TILL COMPRESSOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. THESE COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR IF IT SHORT CYCLES.IT SOMETIMES GETS SO HOT IT DOES TAKE HOURS TO COOL OFF. THERE IS ALSO A DEFROST-TERMINATION SWITCH THAT CAN GO BAD. CONSULT A LICSESED FACTORY CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GIVE YOU A FIXED-PRICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: freezer works but fresh food seems warm

If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment you have a defrost problem. When the freezer coil does not defrost the refrigerator does not get air for cooling.

SOURCE: GE side by side not very cold on fresh food side

there is one of two thing that could be going wrong here ; you may have a bad evap fan mtr and control board or yourr damper is not opening properly. i would say you have the later of the two due to the fact the rf is still making ice. one thing that causes this issue is too much weight in the door causing the door to lean and not trigger in door light switch or the switch itself is damaged. the door hinge and camm assembly can be adjusted from the bottow using a standard socket set

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire sisde

Success!! I just bought a Frigidaire Gallery series side by side model # GLHS39EPJW0, in Canada. My temp readout was in F and I would like Celcius. The hidden button between the readouts I could feel, but it didn't work. However, holding the Fridge readout "up" and then pushing the Freezer readout "up" three times switched me from F to C on the fridge side. I repeated this but pushed the freezer "up" twice and the freezer readout changed to C. Thanks for the info - it helped out when Frigidaire couldn't.

Why is freezer way too cold and fridge too warm when the temp display actually states the preferred temp?


Check the fan in the freezer section, its probably not working or turning too slow. Also check the fresh food cold adjustment its really just a door that gets adjusted, but it could be blocked with food, stuck or broken.

Freezer temp displays 1 C E refig temp t 3


Hello p_shields123 - Could the actual error code display be "ICE T3"? If so, it typically indicates that the TH3 thermistor in the Fresh Food Ice Maker compartment is shorted or open. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to move forward accurately and to properly assist with the repairs.

Fridgidaire refrigerator flashing error code 4


From what I remember a flashing 4 means "damper error". Send your model number found inside or on the outside of the fresh food section, The air damper is found between the freezer and fresh food section and regulates temperature in the fresh food section by opening wide for things that warm up your fresh food section example would be opening the door and letting warm air inside . The damper then closes to keep the right temperature. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Coils keep freezing up its 4 years old


Iced-over evaporator coils, accompanied by a non-chilled fresh food compartment, happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me, the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side. That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.

Since the compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wall of the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week). Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longer move any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food side got warmer as well.

The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall between compartments which opens when the fresh food side needs cooling. If no air is moving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartment climb.

I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side and solved the problem for a while.

I bough a pair of thermometers at a kitchen store and put one in the freezer compartment and one in the fresh food compartment so that I could occasionally check to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running (ie, was it really necessary to be trying to cool either compartment, or were they already cold enough).

About six months later I had the coil icing problem again. This time the fresh food side seemed cool enough (according to the thermometer as well as the fact that the flapper door would close, indicating that the computer knew to not try to additionally cool the fresh food side).

The thermometer indicated that the temp in the freezer compartment was cold enough, but the system computer continued to run the compressor. So I replaced both temp sensors in the freezer compartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)

If you are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them all under the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".

Use a website like www.partselect.com to look up a parts diagram for your fridge and see if you can order just the temp sensors. Other websites (www.repairclinic.com and www.appliancepartsworldwide.com) may also be helpful. I have no affiliation with any of the sites I just mentioned - I'm just posting them as resources.

We have a ge side by side and the refrigerator is freesing stuff. the model number is GSS25X SNA BS


Is it all areas of the fresh food side that are freezing your items, or is it the drawer area?

There is a direct connection (on my GE side-by-side, at least) between the freezer compartment and the drawers in the fresh food compartment. The size of the connection is controlled with a wheel or a slider. This could contribute to freezing in that area of the fresh food compartment.

Otherwise, it could be the temp sensor(s) in the fresh food compartment. If the computer thinks the temp is too high in the fresh food compartment, it will continue to cool.

It could be a problem with the motorized door that connects the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment, located at the top of the dividing wall between the compartment. That door should close when the temp in the fresh food compartment is cold enough. If that door mechanism has failed, is disconnected, or otherwise blocked in the open position, cold air from the freezer compartment will continue to circulate into the fresh food compartment.

This site has schematics of various appliances, including the model number you provided...
http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=GSS22WGPDBB&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=2

Your model appears very similar to mine - in the "Fresh Food Shelves" section of the above site, the sensor is diagram number 242. In the "Freezer Section", the sensors are diagram number 241 and 243.

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.

Temp problem. freezer temp 0 deg. fresh food 46 deg.


An hour aint enough. Turn off fridge, use blow drier, thers a huge ice cube behind that sheetmetal wall back of freezer inside wall, it takes 48 hours at 75 degrees to let it do itself. Listen for inside motor, its obvious. If so, you hve a defrost problem.

Kemore brand - freezer works fine, refrigerator not cold,


The fresh food side is cooled by the freezer side through a duct between the two. It will have a small door that opens or closes depending on how cool you want the fresh food side. The door opens more as you adjust the temp for the fresh food side colder. If the duct is blocked in any way, then it would be like setting the temp setting for the fresh food side warmer and warmer. The freezer would be cold and the fresh food side would be warm. Set the temp to midway. Check for any obstructions to this duct. The evaporator fan is what moves the air to the fresh food side.. If the evaporator fan is not working, this could vary well is the problem. You may have to check the evaporator coil to see if it is frosted up enough to restrict air flow over the evaporator and to the fresh food side. If this helps you find your problem, please rate me. If there is anything else I can help you with, please ask. I am here to help you.
