Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
If only part of your coil is frozen it sounds as though you may have lost some of the charge or your compressor has lost its efficiency with age. You said the condenser fan is running, is the condenser clean? Give it several hours to run before you condemn it. You have nothing to lose by waiting. Defrost timers usually cycle on compressor run time not just on a schedule as such.

After looking through the old solutions and the process you have done , there is nothing much more left that we can solve the issue. The only thing is to Buy a new one. anyway as this is 10 years old i think it would be better if you go for a new one. If defrost is done properly then it may work, but even u said that u already changed the defrost thermostat. so that is not the problem, anyway i suggest is go for a new one. Even if u solve it, it will work temporarily and after few months it will again get some more problems, so it is also a waste of money and time , so better to go for a new one.Plz rate my answer

There R 2 things that need 2 be known for refrigeration.
1. A gas cools on expansion.
2. When u have two things that r different temperatures that touch or r near each other, the hotter surface cools n the colder surface warms up. This is a law of physics cald the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
If u look at the back or bottom of an older refrigerator, you'll see a long thin tube that loops back and forth. This tube is connected to a pump, which is powered by an electric motor.
Inside the tube is Freon, a type of gas. Freon is the brand name of the gas. This gas, chemically is called CFC. This gas was found to hurt the environment if it leaks from refrigerators. So now, other chemicals r used in a slightly different process (see next section below).
CFC starts out as a liquid. The pump pushes the CFC through a lot of coils in the freezer area. There the chemical turns to a vapor. When it does, it soaks up some of the heat that may be in the freezer compartment. As it does this, the coils get colder and the freezer begins to get colder.
In the regular part of ur refrigerator, there r fewer coils n a larger space. So, less heat is soaked up by the coils n the CFC vapor.
The pump then sucks the CFC as a vapor and forces it through thinner pipes which r on the outside of the refrigerator. By compressing it, the CFC turns back into a liquid and heat is given off and is absorbed by the air around it. That's why it might be a little warmer behind or under ur refrigerator
Once the CFC passes through the outside coils, the liquid is ready to go back through the freezer and refrigerator over and over
How Does the Temperature Stay the Same Inside?
A device called a thermocouple (basically a thermometer) can sense when the temperature in the refrigerator is as cold as you want it to be. When it reaches that temperature, the device shuts off the electricity to the compressor.
But the refrigerator is not completely sealed. There are places, like around the doors and where the pipes go through, that can leak a little bit.
So when the cold from inside the refrigerator starts to leak out and the heat leaks in, the thermocouple turns the compressor back on to cool the refrigerator off again.
That's why you'll hear your refrigerator compressor motor coming on, running for a little while and then turning itself off.
Today's refrigerators r very energy efficient. Ones sold today use about one-tenth the amount of electricity of ones that were built 10 years ago. So, if you have an old, it's better 2 buy a new 1 cz you'll save money (and energy) over a long period of time.
belo are few links that shall help u understand system betta..so dat u can fix it ur own
Hv nice time>>>>>>>>>>>cheers!!
