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

1 Answer

GE Refrigerator Not Cooling (TFX27ZPBGWW)

Hi Everyone,

I need your help. Money is tight right now and hopefully this is something I can work on myself. I've got a GE side by side refrigerator that is not cooling properly. We moved milk, eggs, ham into the freezer to keep cool and noticed that the freezer is cold but is not freezing anymore. I did notice a buildup of frost on the back panel but have yet to take the panel off. There is a fan under the fridge that is working fine and I can hear the refrigerator humming like normal.

I'd like to pick your brains for any solutions. Thanks in advance.

The unit isnt defrosting hence the ice on the back panel. Either your bimetal thermostat is open or the heating element is shot. Most GEs they come together so happy hunting. Those parts are behind the frosting panel

Ge turbo cool fridge doesn't cool.


If your refrigerator is not cooling, the problem could be as simple as a covered vent or something more complicated that requires the help of a service professional.

Is your thermostat set incorrectly? It's possible to accidentally bump the thermostat, so check it and reset, if necessary, to the proper coolness.

If there's ice on the evaporator cover ( typically found on the back wall), it's a sign that the evaporator coils inside could also be covered in ice and frost, indicating a defrost problem. Try unplugging the fridge and defrosting it before calling for help.

Since you are hearing no unusual sounds, the problem could be the start relay, which triggers the compressor. Have a refrigerator repair pro determine if the start relay is the culprit and to replace it if necessary.

There is something going on with the fan in the refrigerator. It may be blocked by ice or it is blowing across a crack just right. Take some time to inspect the passageway between the freezer and the refrigerator, and you should find something out of place. If you can't find anything, turn the whole thing off and completely thaw it. When you turn it back on, it should be better.

How long is your warranty good? You might be able to get it repaired for free.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
