The refrigerator power is on and the lights are on. The freezer and bottom shelf seem to be cooling but the top 2 shelves seem to have completely stopped cooling. We can't hear the fan / compressor motor. Help!

Hello,it's the fan that is controlling the cooling unit of the top shelves that is faulty,so all you need to do is to fix it up and you will have your refrigerator working as perfect as it was.
In addition,kindly check if there are no congested defrost on the coils.
wish you good luck,

take care.

I have a GE Profile model # TPX2451YEBS side by side fridge. Both sides are not cold on upper part. The food in fridge on top 2 shelves and door shelves is just cool. The frozen food in door...


Sorry to hear about your problem.

Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

I have severe ice forming in my freezer.


Hi,

On this unit the shelves are the cooling coils and carry the refrigerant (freon) through the system. They will attract the warm moist air by design, so if you have an air leak in the door or elsewhere it will tend to build up there first.

This being said you need to check something else first. Make sure the other shelves are cold. If they are frosted and cold like normal then you most likely have a door that is not closing all the way or a bad seal. If the lower shelves are not cold then you have a system problem, typically a refrigerant (freon) leak that is causing the top shelf to absorb most of the work and not enough refrigerant to flow to the bottom shelves.

I hope this helps

You are probably storing items too close to the top shelf of the freezer, stopping circulation.

Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves


How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.
