Your condensing fan in the unit may be out. This fan supplies the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. To find it look at where the temp control switch is in the fridge. There should be some vents in this area. The fan is located behind that panel. Once you remove the panel take the model number and serial number to the parts house and they should be able to get your fan part. If by chance the fan is rotating then it is possible your defroster is out. You will be able to tell if the defroster is out there will be a large chunk of ice in the area of the fan

GE Model TBX18JISERWH This refrigerator is a freezer on top/refr on bottom.....the problem is that the freezer section is working fine,but the refrig isn't cooling enough. The temo gets up to 48/49...


Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice or is cold . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Refrig. Won't keep food cold but the freezer works fine. Milk spoils after 3 days in the refrigerator. What's wrong? The thermastat was supposely changed?


If the thermostat has been replaced, then I would take a look at the dampers between the refrigerator and the freezer. Here is why....
All the cooling takes place in the freezer section of the unit, there are passageways with dampers that connect the freezer section to the refrigerator section. If these dampers get stuck in a certain position you will either have not enough cooling or to much cooling. This sounds like it is your issue. Hope this helps.

Nine y/o GE side by side not getting cold enough


More likely a defrost heater. Look inside the freezer at the back wall. Any frost there? If so, turn off refrig., unload freezer, take back panel off inside freezer, and use a hair dryer to melt off the frost. Replace the defrost heater located at the bottom of the frosted coils. (New heater may appear different than original, but instructions are included) If you don't have the defrost heater on hand, just manually defrosting the coils and re-starting the refrig will get is cooling again for at least a week before problem will re-occur. (this give you enough time to get the replacement part)

Freezer stays cold but refrig does not


Hi, Look and see if there is frost built up in the freezer on the back wall.
If there is frost, it will not let air circulate properly and it means there is a problem in you self defrosting cycle.
Please let me know if this is what you find so that I can assist you further.

Thanks
