The freezer doesn't freeze that good but the refridgerator does work.


It is possible that the defrost cycle is not working. Look for signs of ice built up in the freezer compartment. The excess ice prohibits the air circulation.


26128165-5xkmzur1kbcrfneaoxy43scu-3-0.jpg If defrost cycle appears working and compressor runs continuously it is probable that the Freon is low or compressor is failing.

the usual tell is the refrigerator gets colder than usual and the freezer does not get as cold. The situation is that the compressor runs until the freezer temperature is satisfied. If the compressor can not achieve the cold temperature of the freezer it will run continuously.

When the unit runs continuously the bi-pass of air is increased bringing more cold air into the refrigerator portion of the unit.

The freezer department is making snow and the vents blocked with ice. now the refrigerator compartment is warm. i have the freezer temp on cold and the refrigerator between normal and colder. what should i...


If the freezer is cold the compressor is Ok. Now if its a two door fridge . Open both the doors while the fridge is On. Press the lower door switch ( the lower light should turn off and you should hear the fan humming sound come on ). While holding the door switch pressed close the freezer door, you should see cold air come out of the slits in the back of the lower compartment. If not icicles have blocked the passages due to the non working of the heating coil.The heating cycle is controlled by the timer switch located near the compressor at the back. Unplug the fridge and remove the timer switch.Note the color of the wires and mark on the old switch. Replace and it will work.Only frost free fridges have heating cycle.

The cold air passage in a modern fridge is made out of thermocole . It will take you more than 24 hours of defrosting to remove the ice. I had to use a hair dryer to melt the ice even after 30 hours. Thermocole is a fantastic insulator.If you want to avoid melting the insulator blow air into the vent from the refrigerator compartment using a vacuum cleaner in blower mode ( reverse mode ). After a few minutes of blowing,hot air will come from the vacuum cleaner which should do the trick

THE FRIDGE AND FREEZER IS NOT COLD OR WORKING ANYMORE AND IS SHOWING A DASH ON THE AREA WHERE IT STATES COLD OR COLDER IN MOVING TEMPERATURE.


Check that your condenser grill is clear and clean, to make sure you have the air circulation around it as required. If that isn't the problem, the next likely problem is that the frost free has stopped working and you have ice build up.

I would suggest you manually defrost the unit and see if it then will function. If it does, then you will need to order and install the defrost unit for your refrigerator. But you can use the refrigerator for several weeks before the ice build up does the same thing.

Bottom frig is not cold enough. just connected after 1 yr


Ok do this. Boil some water in a pot then use that to defrost the freezer. This is caused by ice build up in the vent that is keeping the cold air from coming into the refrigerator. Make sure it is defrost completel though cause the ice that is built up is mostly inside and can't be seen. That will solve ur problem I guarantee. Then set the temperature to normal. Like half way. This keeps the frost from building up. Believe it or not as refrigerators get a bit older they actually get even colder and therefore frost build up is more likely. Since no refrigeration can be made completely leak proof, small amount of the freon has leaked out older fridge, and this actually cause it to get colder. You don't need a service technician just defrost then set to a lower setting thats it.

Freezer section is cold, but the refrigerator section is not


set to colder refrigerator ... not colder freezer!! the fridge is reliant upon air migrating into the area from freezer side! if you peg both controls to max , you get a warmer refrigerator , but colder freezer, the control that does not operate the compressor is the setting i mean, it usually says .. for coldest and everyone pegs it and its a common cause for a service call and people cant believe it, if you cant tell which is which set both to middle! evfen at warmest setting the freezer should still make ice and thats the test for freezers state1 can it make ice!

GE TFX 22CR Freezer works but not Refrigerator.


If the evaporator fan isn`t working, the frig will not circulate the cold air needed from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. You will need to remove the panel and check for ice around the fan. Make sure it can turn free. If it isn`t blocked and you can turn it freely and there is voltage going to it, the fan motor has gone bad and needs to be replaced if there.
