Question about GE J Series 18.2 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX18AABWW

Open Question

It is a GE Refrigerator model # TBX18. The refrigerator section seems to have stopped working but the freezer is OK. I think there may be a blockage is the tube that removes the condensation from the fridge. What should I do?

SOURCE: GE refrigerator not cold but Freezer works fine

you need to find out if the evaporator fan in the freezer is working. or if the evaporator is all iced up. If the fan is not working you will need to replace it. If the coils are all iced up you have a defrost problem and that will ned to be resolved. Once a evaporator is all iced over air can not pass through it and you will loose your cooling in the refrigerator first. Check the heater and the terminator to make sure they are good. You can use a hair dryer to clear the ice off the evaporator. Once you find the bad part replace it and the unit will function normally

SOURCE: GE refrigerator not cold but Freezer works fine

I have a GE side by side and had the same problem. Upon removing the inside cover I found that there was a substantial amount of ice on the evaporator. Melting with a hair dryer was the short term fix. I have been told, by a reputable appliance repair man, that this is common for GE refrigerators and that the cause is usually a bad defroster heating element. Fortunately you can replace this yourself for about $40.

You most likely have an automatic defrost problem. When one of more of the defrost components fails, frost accumulates behind the freezer wall and restricts airflow to the fresh food side. You will still generate cold into the freezer section but will have virtually no cold to fresh food side. If it is a few years old it is most likely the defrost heater which is defective. Replace the defrost thermostat (bi-metal) as well.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

My RJ 523V-R refrigerator has worked perfectly for 8 years, but suddenly stopped cooling the fridge properly while the freezer seems ok. how can I fix this?


Often times their is a fan from the freezer section to the refrigerator section, of some brands of boxes. If the fan goes out, the refrigerator sections no longer cools.

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

What is the cubic feet measurement for a GE Model TBX18 refrigerator? Also, what is its width and height?


The capacity depends on the exact model number. The TBX18TABWW and similar models are 17.6 cu. ft. The refrigerator holds 13.6 cu. ft. and the freezer 4 cu. ft. This model is 64.25" tall, including the hinge, 28" wide, and 31.25" deep.

The GE S series, including
TBX18SIBRWW, are 18.2 cubic feet; the specs are 13.04 cu. ft. for the fridge and 5.13 for the freezer. Total height (including the hinge is) 64.75", 29.375" wide and 31.5" deep including the handle. (It takes up 58" with the door open.)

The J series has the same total capacity and dimensions as the S series.

Remember to leave 0.75" free on both sides and 1" at the back and top for air to circulate around the refrigerator.

You can find your exact models specs and manuals here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number in the search box and click submit. Dimensions are provided in the Quick Specs for most refrigerators. The model number will be on a plaque in any of the following spots:
1) On the ceiling of the freezer near the front
2) By the temperature control
3) On the inside wall of the refrigerator near the crisper drawer on either side
4) Behind the crisper drawer
5) On the bottom front of the refrigerator

I hope this helps.

GE Model GSS22JERFBB moaning sound form freezer section


That's the fan motor. Either the fan blade is hitting something or the motor is going bad. Either is a cheap fix.

GE- GTS22WC refrigerator. Both the refrigerator and the freezer stopped cooling, We put it in the basement thinking it was no good, and after a few months we plugged it back in and it worked ok for about...


The auto defrost heat element is not working. When the ice buildup clogs the airflow the unit stops cooling. Once you unplug it and give it a chance to melt it works again. You need to have the defrost unit replaced.

Freezer works but refregerator is warm


If this is the model I am thinking about, you have the same compressor for each side. There should be a vent or opening that you can adjust to let cool air inside the refrigerator. Find it and adjust. You may have this opening blocked by something. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.

Confused /


Ok the freezer section works the refrig section think of the refrigerator as a large cooler with an inlet and outlet hole cold air is blown into the refrig from the freezer via the fan motor in the freezer the really cold air comes in the top of the refrig and drops to the bottom of the refrig then it is sucked back into the freezer thru a vent hole in the bottom of the refrigerator ..GOT IT?? Now when a unit has a defrost problem there is an ice or frost build up in the freezer on the coil (bad heater,bad bi metal, bad timer can cause this) the ice builds and builds to the point where it blocks the air flow across the coil hence the air can not get to the refrigerator section making it warmer but the freezer section will work ok .. I hope this makes sense...Hint : A sign of this is a lg frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
