Question about GE J Series 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX21JABWW
We moved this refrigerator to the garage. The move was smooth although there was some bumping and shaking but nothing major. We plugged it in again and now only the freezer works. The refrigerator (bottom part) does not work and the appliance light does not work when the door is opened I have a 1991 Dutchman Camper with a 6cu ft refrigerator/freezer and I plugged it in 8 hrs ago and the freezer is starting to form ice but the refrigerator is not working at all. does it need re-charged and is that a major job?

Hi: When you plugged it in how long did it take for the bottom to warm? If it was a week or two it might be your defrost heater(frost builds where it shouldn't). It's just a wire in a glass tube like a light bulb, and will be fragile after years of service. When the freezer works and the fresh food dosn't it means there is no circulation between the two. Frost will build up where you don't see it, and it's where the air channel is between the freezer and the fresh food. When moving a ref. it usually is the def. heater. The light bulb is isolated from this circuit so it may just be the bulb (the filament got shook) or the switch. Good luck Jeff
