GE tfx28pb running and system check says everything is ok no cold

GE tfx28pb is running and system check says everything is ok but it isn't cold like it should be. I've read some other forums and they have said that some coils may be frozen and not alowing freon to flow correctly. What if I unplugged it and let the whole thing sit for about a day??? Also, I dont know if it is out of the ordinary or not but the coils that I can see through the access panel in front on the bottom of the fridge are warm/hot... TFX28PBBA BB

SOURCE: Refrigerator warm, freezer too cold

I had this same problem. You need to totally empty the fridge and freezer and allow it to defrost for 24 hours. Then put it back on and it will work. This happens if someone leaves the freezer door open and then it gets closed. The defrosted water freezes in the pipes and doesn't allow the cold air to move up into the fridge so the freezer gets even colder. This has happened to me twice!

SOURCE: GE TFX27PF refrigerator and freezer still not getting cold enough

the partial frost pattern is an indication of low refrigerant, restriction or bad compressor. if the unit is under 5 years old this repair will probably be under warranty thru GE. if out of warranty then you are looking in most cases between 200-500 dollars for repair. good luck Thanx peyton

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE GSH25JFTA BB getting VERY warm on defrost

Good day,
Your machine should have a limit thermostat as well as the thermister. It may payto change it first before the motherboard.
It looks like this, mounted on the top of the coil.

If that fails, and the machine goes back to normal cooling until the next defrost cycle, I can think of nothing but the motherboard as the culprit.

Energy saver keeps going off and on with beeping sound. Everything else seems to be working OK.


Check your manual but you settings could be to cold for it to run in energy saver mode so it keeps catching up then slacking off.

My ge GSS22WGMCBB is not getting cold eonough - frig reads 60 degrees, freezer reads 38 degrees. What can be wrong? It's 10 years old...should I get it fixed or replace it?


either the compressor isn't running due to a faulty PTC overload relay on the compressor body or a bad compressor itself,you can test the compressor with an ohmmeter between the 3 terminals on the side of the compressor PTC is mounted,if its ok then it can be a defrost problem where its not melting the evaporator ice and blocking the cold air flow remove the inner rear wall of the freezer and test the defrost heater located below the evaporator coil as G.E. defrost heaters are notorious for failing,if its ok,then the defrost terminator on top of this coil can be bad(open)to test this component it needs to be below 15 degrees temperature to show good(closed) if ok then the mainboard located in the rear back of the unit can be defective because it controls all the units functions

I have a 20 cf upright GE freezer that isn't


it may be froze up, and require a defrosting. use a portable fan to speed up this process , also make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working, with a little work and a zoom spout oiler, or some light motor oil, the motor can be sparked back to life.. freeze ups are common with the high humidity we are having these days.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood Florida

Hotpoint (GE)CTX18GJB not cold enough. Just had serviced - tech replaced defrost timer and defrost terminator. The top located freezer gets cold and can hear the fan running - but still not cold enough...


Hello,

I agree with the tech. if the refriderator isn't frosting it isn't working,their is only 1fan and its in the freezer,The tech could have missed some frost build up that is blocking the air flow into the fresh food section,if he removed all the frost it could take up to 24 hours to get cold ,it should slowly geta bit colder throughout the day,if by tomorrow its still not working have the tech come back and check for frost build up on the vents for air flow into fresh food compartment.
To reiderate their is two types of refrigerators,one that you have to manually defrost and a automatic defrost type where the defrost system which is comprised of the defrost heater,timer&termination t-stat will automatically melt the frost

GE profile fridge not cold, freezer ok

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

I have a GE TFX28PB with an FF error light.


FF probably stands for "Frost Free". Yes. Your defrost circuit must have a temp sensor to tell it when the defrost is working. And for your fridge...it isnt.

The warm fridge/barely cold freezer are both common symptoms of extreme frosting of the cooling coils.

You need to manually defrost this unit and replace the defrost element and/or the controller board/power supply. You can buy them pretty cheaply online. Replacement is a lot easier if you just shut off the fridge and let it come to room temp before removing the coil cover.

Go to the GE website and get an online diagram of your fridge so you can see where the parts all reside. If you timer is mechanical it should have a way to manually trigger it to confirm the heater element works. IC based boards need special commands to go manual.....but you should be able to get this info from GE.

Good luck and be careful.
