The freezer is running all the time. I checked the coil and it is not frozen. I had both setting on 9 for about 1 month so I don't know is it could be the freon or what it is.

Unplugged fridge 9 months and now it doesnt cool at all


it's 20 years old,replace it,don't waste a penny into that machine,most likely you have a problem in the sealed system compressor and freon so don't waste any of your time or money.good luck,if you say the compressor and fans are running and it's not getting cold one of the lines could have rotted out and the freon gas leaked out,you can remove the back inside wall of the freezer and look at the evaporator coil,if it's running fine you should see an even frost pattern covering the coil,if you only see frost where the lines connect to the coil you have a freon leak but i wouldn't even waste my time doing that on this machine just repace it.

Freezer is running constantly. ice crystals formed on outside of packaged foods. food is still frozen.


the door was left open,if you find frozen water droplets on the food packages or ice crystals it forms from the warm air coming in,make sure all the packages are pushed in and not hitting the door and you can tilt the fridge back a little so the door will close with a slight push.also check the ice shout door and make sure no air is leaking through it,you'll know you'll see all ice around it.you can check the condenser coil and condenser fan to see if it needs to be vacuumed,the machine will run longer if the coil is clogged with dust or if the fan isn't blowing,the coil should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months.hope this helps but it sounds like the freezer door was left open.

try taking the back cover off of the freezer inside it u should have a fan see if its running if not check to see if u have got power to it if u do then just replace the motor and see if this fixes the problem if the lil coil under that fan is frozen and the fan is running then u should have a lil heat element black running through the coil see id this has power to it iif the coil is frozen and if not check continuity thru the element just take the wires off of it and see if u have continuity thru it if u do then the element is fine if u dont it needs replacing but if all this is working then ur defrost timer may be bad ull have to get the wiring diagram out usually hanging on the back of the fridge and see where the defrost timer is and see if it is working or some just have a lil sensor on the freon lines right on top of the coil to let it know when it needs to defrost that may not be working stick it on some ice and see if the element starts warming up hope this helps

FRIDGE NOT COLD FREEZER WORKS FINE


Make sure the freezer fan motor is running. Remove the rear panel in the freezer and check for frozen coils. If coils are frozen replace the defrost heater and thermostat.
Check the air vents to the fresh food section,are they frozen closed?

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.

you dont want to add any more freon to it to start with

it either has to much in it or the thermostat is not turning it off and making it run to long, you need to see what temperature you are getting in the freezer and what suction pressure the unit is running on to determine if it is over charged
