Re: GE REFRIGERATOR TFX22P
Check the defrost heater bet it is bad part number for replacement heater is wr51x10053
if the heater is bad defrost coil with a hair dryer till no ice is on the coil
be sure to lay a towel under the coil to catch the water if you dont the drain pan will overflow

Fun run as long as the compressor runs and you do not need to worry about it. the only thing you need to verify are the temperatures in the refrigerator and and freezer compartment: below 40-F, and below 0-F
if temp ok, do not wory about it.
Its the problem with compressor,The problem is weak compressor.The refrigerant ( R12) in the
compressor is got low.The compressor is weak.The compressor needs to be
replaced.--------------The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The
compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches
its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan
in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section
is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from
freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is
located.------------But as you mentioned that freezer not cooling this indicates
problem with compressor.When compressor cools the freezer section then fridge
section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge
section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.----------
In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this
Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling
agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its
chamber.---------Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that
recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get
compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few
years.------------------You can get required parts from from online sites like: ---

Is it running? If so, the evaporator fan in the freezer and the condenser fan(if there is one) by the compressor need to be running. Check if compressor is running. Is there any frost build up on the evaporator cover? If so you have a defrost problem (bad heater, defrost thermost, thermister, defrost timer or circuit board). Check air channels between freezer and refrigerator sections for any ice blockage. If everything checks good you may have a sealed system problem which requires a repairman to fix and is expensive.
the first thing to check is if you can here the evaporator fan running in the freezer compartment.
when the unit is in the cooling mode with the compressor running open the freezer door hold the door switch in and listen for the fan to start running.
you have to give a few seconds to engage if you do not here the fan in needs to be replaced,also look for excess ice build up somewhere in the middle or lower section of the freezer that would cause the fan to stop working.
ihope this helps with your problem best of luck
ok, this is insufficient air flow causing the uneven cooling. the fan that has stopped may be dead. you can test the motor with a multi meter and voltage needle. i would also preform a break point test on the thermostat as well. make sure the compressor and condenser are ok. if the noise is coming for the compressor, you may have a bad compressor unit.
If this is the model I am thinking about, you have the same compressor for each side. There should be a vent or opening that you can adjust to let cool air inside the refrigerator. Find it and adjust. You may have this opening blocked by something. Let me know if this fixes the problem.
3 most common things that cause this are a defrost problem (will notice frost build up on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor (should hear fan running in the freezer), or bad damper (vent to the fridge section). If no frost and fan is running check for air flow out of the vent. It should be at the top of the fridge section.
Couple of things... first need to see if the compressor is really hot to the touch and "clicking" on and off every 3-5 minutes due to high heat (trying to start). If that's what is happening you likely have a "start device" failure (little box on the side of the compressor). If the box is white in color and you pull it off and it makes noise when you shake it (along with little bits of debris falling out) you know it's bad. They make a kit to fix that known problem. If the compressor isn't trying to start but actually runs quietly... check that the cooling coil isn't all iced up preventing proper air flow inside the cabinet (take the panel of the rear inside of the freezer section to check it). If that is all a block of ice basically you likely have a defrost cycle problem (defrost t-stat bad, defrost timer bad, etc.). Other than that you should have a little fan right above the coils to move air around, if the compressor is running and the compressor fan (called condensor fan) is running then this fan (called evaporator fan) should also be running to move the cold air around. If that fan is dead then you will have a nice cold coil but no air flow over it to cool the rest of the refer/freezer properly. Let us know what ya find out.
