Do you have ice /frost buildup on freezer wall?If so auto defrost is not working.3 possible causes ,turn the defrost timer manually to defrost position either measure amps @ 3.5 amps or listen in freezer section for crackling popping or sizzling.If you dont hear/measure this you have a bad heater or defrost tstat .Remove freezer wall look at top of coil for thermodisc 2 wires and 1 or 2 glass heaters (btm,mid coil).Tsat can be bypassed by connecting the 2 wires or checked for continuity closed at approx 20'.heaters may be visibly burnt or broken recommend changing both parts

How about checking the amount of refrigerant gas, freon or CF4, whichever you are using might be low and might need to be topped up with some more gas?....................sodeep

My GE 19.7 TFX20JR only partially freezes in certain areas and not cold on refrigerator side. This all happened at the same time it stopped making ice. Water still dispenses.


Check for frozen, iced over evaporator coil caused by defective defrost timer and/or heating element. Ice maker will not work unless freezer temp is around 10 degrees or less.

GE fridge not cold.


If the coil (in the freezer) is icing up then it's not being properly defrosted on a regular basis, ie. 2 - 3 times a day. On older models it's usually just a simple matter of replacing the defrost timer. On newer models, the defrost timer is integral with the 'motherboard', so the whole (expensive Chinese made) motherboard must be replaced because they're not serviceable.

Less likely (but possible) are the defrost heating element and/or temperature sending unit found on or near the coil itself. Least likely is a low refrigerant level, which would indicate a leak.

Not cooling properly GE TFX20JR


Your refrigerator has a defrost thermostat inside the fresh food section behind the light cover and control panel. Need you to turn it clockwise slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it like that and after 30 minutes or less it does not restart you will need to replace the timer. The defrost timer is part number WR9X489
You should hear sounds from freezer with door open like sizzling or crackling. That would be the defrost working. If there is no defrost during this time. let me know so we can look into the defrost element and defrost thermostat as possible problems. Visit my site and enter the model or part number into search feature. That takes you to your model. Any questions or help from me, just let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE TFX20JR BK WW side by side won't cool or freeze


First point: The entire fridge is cooled by the freezer section. A fan blows air across to the food section.
2) Every 8 hours or so, a timer shuts off the compressor cycle, and starts up a heater to defrost the freezer coils. If the heater(s) are burnt out, or if the safety thermostat (to prevent overheating) is open, then you will have no defrost. The coils will frost up and eventually prevent airflow to the food section. Milk goes sour.
3) In rare circumstances, the timer itself can stall. This cause the same symptoms as above, but this is not as common as the other 2 causes of No Defrost.
Sequence: Check heater continuity. Check safety thermostat continuity while cold. Check defrost timer operation.
Hope this helps. I am a journeyman with 39 years exp. Happy New Year.

Refrigerator not cooling, frosting up


You might try GE customer service and ask where to locate the defrost timer,since that sounds like your problem.
