SOURCE: water not entering freezing tray on frigidare side

Try replacing the washer in the solenoid valve. Sometimes it leaks by enough to freeze in the dispensing tube.

SOURCE: Refrigerator side of this side by side is not getting cold enough

The frost is on the back wall of the freezer causing poor air flow to the rest of the unit. If you remove the back wall inside the freezer you will find the ice burg that sank the titanic. Using a hair dryer you will need to defrost all of the ice off the evaporator coils. There are 3 things that will cause this, Defrost timer, defrost t-stat or the defrost heater. Usually it is t-stat or heater. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: My side by side 23.6 cu. ft. no frost refrigerator is not freezing and the refrigerator is not getting cold enough. There's frost on the back wall inside freezer. It's a GE TFX24VR. What can I

usually that means your fridge thermostat is being blocked by items in your fridge, telling the cooling system to shut down. If your fridge and freezer are packed, the fridge might protect itself by shutting down the cooling system. Happened to us last Thanksgiving.

In the freezer compartment, there is frost in the back. It's a side by side 19.9 without a water dispenser. The refrigerator part is not as cold as it should be but it is cold.


although most frost free freezers will hardly ever frost up,some will,(it depends on overall humidity)by frost free the makers say "food is frost free"but the inside is shinny plastic and all shinny surfaces will collect condensation and frost up.(look under the salad crisper,condensation?)it is worthwhile, about once a year,doing a complete defrost(NO sharp objects)and vacuum out all the vents/clean out any drain holes.
saves you a fortune in power.......

Freezer sides works, refridgerator side will not get cool, any quick fix, I am pretty adapt mechanically


There is a good chance that the evaporator on the refrigerator side is frosted up due to a faulty thermal fuse or sensor or both. Since these units have more than one evaporator, there is no damper to get stuck.

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)

Hi, Put a thermometer in the freezer and see if it gets down to 0 to 5 above zero. If it is not getting that cold, something is wrong. If you had frost building up behind the rear panel, there is a defrost problem.
Please let me know the temperature and I can assist you further.

Side by side, freezer is cold, fridge is warm, freezer is iced-up


Hi: Your defrost heater ot timer is out. Hence the frost. That also clogs the airways to the fresh food compartment. If you are handy, unload the fridge (you will need a cooler or have a bbq for everybody,) I can't give you the specifics but you will need to remove the panel where the frost is, first let the frost melt off. at the bottom of the coils will be a heater tube. Usually glass with a metal coil in it. See if there is a break in the coil. If so replace it. If that is ok it is your timer. Most likely electronic and expensive. This can be anywhere. Look at a diagram of the fridge to see. Sears parts is a good site for it. Hope I helped, Jeff

Refrig/Freezer not getting cold


If there is frost on the back wall of the freezer section a defrost is required. Defrost is normally automatic on a timed cycle. If you have frost and you know it is because of the door being open to long with the refrigerator running it could clear the coil automatically in the next 12 hours of operation. If it does not clear the frost from the coil inside the back wall you may require service to check out the timing device, heaters, and defrost thermostat.
