Ge profile side by side fridge - fridge not cooling/freezer fine


The problem you are having is what is called defrost. This unit is supposed to do a defrost every 8 hours. If it fails to do so the coils will get a heavy heavy frost on them and the evap fan cannot circulate the cold air thru the freezer and into the fridge. you will need to defrost the coils with a hair dryer. Will probably take about 45 min.'s to a hour. The most common cause for this is the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils. Replace this and you will be fine to go. Part number is wr51x10101

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.
