Question about GE Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a GE TFX30PR. The frezer section works,

I have a GE TFX30PR with two problems:
1) The freezer section works but the refrigerator section does not work (food is not cold). Is this a simple case of fan not working, or is it something else more serious? If the fan is not working, how do I check? I'm handy, but the refrigerator is 13 years old, so if it's costly to fix then I will replace it.

2) Even though the frezer section works, there is a little bit of ice in the bottom, it appears that the water leaks and refreezes at the bottom.

Thanks
Ben

Frezzer works but not refrigerator refer section does not get cold but frezer section works


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB


Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

Frost in Freeze


Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.
