Your evaporator coil has a leak in it and the unit is cooling with minimal freon in the lines. So the only cold part of the coils that has freon is collecting moisture and forming the frost on the inside back wall. You need to contact a qualified service technician to resolve this.

Just frost or a puddle? If it's a puddle cause by melting frost with no where to go then you had my problem. A clogged drain. First defrost the drain, a hair dryer works well, blow or snake it out then install the factory drain heater fix. Plugs right in and works like a charm. I've had my sub zero 550 for more years than I can remember. I'd buy another one in a minute. Good luck!

That's called a frost-back and usually is caused by no air flow over the evaporator coil or it may not be defrosting properly. see if there is any frost in the freezer.

Have a GE side by side gsh22sgress unit. Child left freezer door open. Unit ran for days (in non-occupied appartment). Meat thawed. Cleaned unit inside with mild soapy mix. Unit runs but will not cool...


Open door let too much moisture into refrigerator. (The cooling coils, behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, are blocked with frost) If you unplug the refrig for a day or so it will work again, or you can take the back wall out from inside the freezer and melt the frost with a hair blower.

Magic Chef Side by side...freezer side frosting and Refrigerator side not cooling


Your defrost timer,defrost thermostat and defrost heater need to be checked.
The heater and thermostat are inside the freezer behind the back freezer panel.
The timer is underneath the refrigerator either the left front or right rear.

Refrigerator side not cooling. The freezer works fine. Its age is over ten years old. Model GE TFX22R.


Is there any frost build up on the freezer panel? If not, this could be a damper door issue. Check to see if air is coming from the damper, this is the vent inside the back left-corner of the fresh food side, assuming the evap fan is running. If you feel nothing, it more than likely is your damper door.


If you have frost build up, we're talking about a defrost issue then. Let me know!

My son left fridge door open, from 1-2 hours. it doesn't seem to be cooling now. Is there a problem or does it take a while for condensor to come back on?


What has happened is that the evaporator (the cooling coils inside the freezer) have frosted up due to all the moist air which entered the refrig with the door open. This frost has blocked the normal flow of air within the refrigerator/ freezer. Turn unit off, unload freezer, and leave freezer door open for several hours to allow built up frost to melt. Better yet, remove the panel at the back of the freezer and melt the frost off with a hair blower.

Both sides are not cooling


Leaving the door open allowed an unusual amount of moisture laden air to enter the refrigerator, resulting in excessive frost build up on the evaporator. That frost is blocking the cooling coils so air can no longer pass through them. You can fix this by unplugging the refrigerator for a day or so, allowing the frost to melt, or taking the back wall out from behind the freezer shelves and melting the frost off with a hair blower.

Left not transfering cold enough air to right side. doesn't get colder than 50 degrees, why?


Remove back panel of freezer (where you see the frost) and melt the frost with a hair blower. The frost blocked evaporator coils are not allowing air to pass over the cold coils, so no cold air is able to get to the fresh foods section. You will most likely need to replace the defrost heater at the bottom of the evap coils to prevent this from reoccurring in two weeks time.
