Your evaporator coil in the freezer behind the rear panel is iced up and cold air cant flow thru ice,defrost the evaporator coil,then check continuity of the heater element under the coil,if its good,then suspect the defrost control,usually located in the refrige side on the upper area

One of the biggest problems is with the new refrigerants (R134A in this case). If the unit gets overheated it actually causes the salts in the moisture releases and travels throughout the system eventually clogging the metering device (capillary tube). The only thing that can be done is to have the system flushed, new drier, evacuated and re-charged.
Then make sure there is enough air circulating and keep the coils squeaky clean.

I have a Whirlpool ED5FHGXNQ00 side by side.for a while it started to show signs of warming up in the fridge side.i noticed the dust built up underneath on the coils and cleaned it.i left it of*** night to defrost.have not plugged it back in yet.but in the freezer behind the panel there was ice build up to the right of the evaporator fan on the plastic scroll.i cleaned that upturned it on and noticed that there was very little air coming through the top air scoop vent in the fridge side.when I open the freezer door it allows more air though(probably to compensate).anyway I read alot on this issue and some say it's the defrost timer boardsome thermostat.the compressor stays pretty hotbut the freezer works fine.please help.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

GE side x side refridgerator temperature is


unlikely both temp.sensors will be faulty at the same time. Notice how different the internal temps.are compared to the acurate one you are measuring it against. Almost certain board is defective because incorrect info in the processor will tell the compressor/s to switch off before time.(hence not correct temp. all the time.) Suggest replacement.I normally replace probes as well to eliminate problems later..

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Not cold enough


I opened the bottom panel at the back of the fridge and cleaned the coil because it was completely covered with dust and lints and less than an hour later the fridge side temp started going down and the freezer took five hours for the temp to start going down when we didn't open it for that much time. It's back to factory setting now and thanks for the blogs that I read that I was able to try different possibilities. Your site is very helpful.

GE Frigerator has intermittant Freezing


It sounds like the defrost heater is burned out. Remove the inside back cover in the freezer to see if the coils are frozen up. If so, more than likely your defrost heater has bit the dust. It is located at the bottom of the inside coil of the freezer.

Also, you could be have a clogged condensor coil. It is located on the out side back of the Fridge. You need to remove the panel from the lower part of the fridge and do a thorugh cleaning.
