Fridge isn't cold. Freezer is cold but frosting up


Is the fan in your freezer working? Make sure the door switch is pressed in when checking as it cuts the fan out when the door is open. Does it have a manual defrost timer?

I have a GE Profile counter depth French door refrigerator bottom freezer and I keep getting frost in the freezer. The seal on the door isn't as tight as the seal on the refrigerator but no cold air...


Where are you getting frost at? Is it on the back wall in the freezer? if so - your problem may be a defrost issue and in that case you would need to hire a professional appliance repair technician to service your refrigerator.

Freezer is cold but refrigerator side is barely cooling. turned off and water leaking out of door on the freezer side


Hello Roxanne,

what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up,i would take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the deforst heater and defrost termination. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead in the fresh food compartment in the control panel where the thermostat is. I would replace heater/defrost termination first though since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,
Gene

Hotpoint (GE)CTX18GJB not cold enough. Just had serviced - tech replaced defrost timer and defrost terminator. The top located freezer gets cold and can hear the fan running - but still not cold enough...


Hello,

I agree with the tech. if the refriderator isn't frosting it isn't working,their is only 1fan and its in the freezer,The tech could have missed some frost build up that is blocking the air flow into the fresh food section,if he removed all the frost it could take up to 24 hours to get cold ,it should slowly geta bit colder throughout the day,if by tomorrow its still not working have the tech come back and check for frost build up on the vents for air flow into fresh food compartment.
To reiderate their is two types of refrigerators,one that you have to manually defrost and a automatic defrost type where the defrost system which is comprised of the defrost heater,timer&termination t-stat will automatically melt the frost

Fridge side not cold freezer side too cold frosting up


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Check the coils on the rear of the refrigerator and make sure they are clean and dust free. Also check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan under the unit to see if it is running. If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. Also check the freezer to ensure it isn't over loaded with food stuff, reason being air must flow freely threw out the entire refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work correctly.

Defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Freezer part is working fine. fridge part is barely cool on the highest setting


Sounds like your cooling tube ia blocked by an ice buildup or something. Some refrigerators have a fan to draw the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator and if the fan quits, then the cold is not drawn out of the freezer.

If it isn't a frost free freezer then it is probably just a case of needing to defrost the freezer.
