The food on the refrigrator side is freezing. the water line is not working so i assume its frozen as well.

Hello Tina,

The problem with it freezing in the freshfood section is going to be because the air damper that opens and closes to let cold into the ref. section is stuck open and too much cold air is entering into the ref. compartment. This is a fairly common occurence with the GE refrigs. and by replacing the fresh food air damper which is located in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment it will open and close properly and not allow too much cold air to enter where upon it freezes everything.

This model has a cover inlet located in the bad top section of the refer, this allow shared air from the freezer to enter the refer section, this unit has a damper door and a fan in it. When the damper door breaks it allows air to enter all the time causing the food to freeze in the refer section. Part # WR49X10091, this link will should you what this part looks like and the cost of the part needed to correct this problem. Inside the white plastic shell, is the parts I was describing above. Not a difficult repair but can be time consuming as the unit is built like a puzzle and will need to be disassembled to change.
Good Luck

Refrig. is freezing food

Your problem is going to be with your damper if its a side by side, the damper is what will direct the airflow from the freezer section to the fresh food side. Often times the flap will break off or stick open allowing cold air to enter the ref section all the time. This will cause the food to freeze usually towards the top of the unit. Or possibly a bad temperature control causing the unit to run constantly.

Why would my refrigator be freezing my food set at the lowest setting it can be set on

If it has a damper at the top left wall , the damper is bad or the refrig control (possibly circuit board) is bad .The damper closes to reduce the air flow to the refrig yet the freezer section can still get colder if needed . The refrig control or circuit board for the fridge control , works the damper . If you feel air coming thru the damper , it is not closing , causing your food to freeze .

GE side by side refrigerator TFX22ZRA control board

The adaptive defrost on your model is controled by the motherboard, but I don't think that is your problem. If the freezer is too cold and the fresh foods is too warm, check the air dampener. It is a small duct door in the very back top left of the fresh foods section.
