Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

GE TFX22PRXB, stopped cooling. Cleaned coils underneath, cleared blockage in freezer drain tube. Still would not cool. Removed panel from freezer and found lower set of coils frozen solid. Removed all ice with hair dryer, reassembled and still doesn't cool. Checked freezer this morning and lower coils were starting to freeze again, but only down the tube on the left side and the bottom two loops of the lower coil. What do I need to do?

SOURCE: Kenmore 52603100 refrigerator was icing up, now has stopped cooling!

Here is your problem:

There are two temperature sensor wires; one should be routed around the vent on the upper left corner of the "ceiling" of the fridge. It will route inside the plastic cover in the back upper corner.
The second one is critical. It originates inside the cover and must pass through the wall of the fridge into the freezer and rest just inside a hole in the rectangle that passes through from one side to the other. If the very tip of this sensor is not well inside the freezer, the system will think the freezer is too warm, never turn off and the lovours inside the plastic housing described above will jam with ice and get stuck. This piece will have to be replaced but will continue to freeze and break until the sensors are placed in the correct locations. Don't ask me how I know all this.

Good luck.

SOURCE: GE TFX20JR BK WW side by side won't cool or freeze

First point: The entire fridge is cooled by the freezer section. A fan blows air across to the food section.
2) Every 8 hours or so, a timer shuts off the compressor cycle, and starts up a heater to defrost the freezer coils. If the heater(s) are burnt out, or if the safety thermostat (to prevent overheating) is open, then you will have no defrost. The coils will frost up and eventually prevent airflow to the food section. Milk goes sour.
3) In rare circumstances, the timer itself can stall. This cause the same symptoms as above, but this is not as common as the other 2 causes of No Defrost.
Sequence: Check heater continuity. Check safety thermostat continuity while cold. Check defrost timer operation.
Hope this helps. I am a journeyman with 39 years exp. Happy New Year.

SOURCE: whirlpool freezer not freezing

The fan speed can be deceptive. That is why this problem is so hard to diagnose, when the fan starts to wear out the motor spins but not with enough force to circulate air thru the freezer and rrefrigerator. If you have the ability to swap out the fan motor then it should only cost you the price of the motor and components. Approx. $125.00 if you have the make and model you can go to appliancefactoryparts.com or appliancefactorypro.com to obtain motor and components, But if you have to get serviceman to replace fan it will cost you an hours labor also.

SOURCE: my frig is running but not cooling - frig is 50

I can help you diagnose the problems with your GE. Several things can cause these symptoms. All you need is a voltage meter patience and a want to, to repair and do it better than a paid technician. In most cases with the PSS26MSRSS the defrost heater is the cause for this. Look into rear of your freezer and back wall. Is Ice or frost building on rear wall? If yes unplug and prepair to remove contents in freezer compartment. Remove rear panel in freezer and use hair dryer to defrost ice until the defrost heater is visible. BRB , Sea Breeze

I have a GE GSH25JFTA CC refrigerator and it is not cooling properly. What should I check or replace?


Depending how long the power was off you may have an ice blockage in the freezer. Normal cooling causes the freezer coils to build up frost and snow coating all over the coils. A normal defrost cycle melts that frost/snow off and keeps the coils clear so the fans can move air through the coils.During the power outage the frost may have started to melt wetting the snow. If the refrigerator then came on and re-froze the wet frost/snow into a solid block of ice, the normal defrost cycle would not be able to clear that solid ice out. So it may be blocking the air flow. Remove freezer back panel and see if there is ice back there. If yes--use something like a hair dryer to melt everything out until it is completely clear. Make sure the fans are running also.

At the bottom drawer of freezer it has a frozen layer of ice which has now stopped the drawer from being removed.


Underneath the evaporator (cooling coil) located in the freezer is a drain pan and drain tube used to carry away the water that accumulates during the defrost cycle. This pan or drain line is probably plugged with debris.

Water is collecting in the bottom of the refrigerator below the drawers. Water was also in the lunch meat drawer.


Your freezer defrost coils are probably frozen. Or the drain tube is plugged. Remove the rear panel from the freezer and defrost the defrost coils if necessary. Make sure that the drain tube underneath the coils is not plugged with ice or other foreign matter. You may have to thaw out the tube. If you don't make sure that the tube is clear, excess condensate will continue to drain into the fridge. Good luck!

GE GTS22WCMBRCC, refrigerator and the freezer wont cool or freeze


possibly the drain tube for the condensate(water) is plugged due to ice having built up on freezer coils. Check coils to see if they are iced up. Sometimes especially in humid climates the defrost mechanism even if working gets overpowered by moisture. If so defrost coils manually and clear drain tube.

Refrigerator side stops cooling


Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.
