your evaporator coil in the rear area behind the freezer back panel is frozen over with ice and the coil can no longer deliver cold air due to ice blocking the air flow from the evaporator fan,remove this rear panel,defrost it with a hair dryer,check the defrost heating coil for continuity,they go bad regularly,if not the heater coil under the evaporator coil,it may be the defrost timer in the refrigerator section of the unit that powers the defrost coil that needs replacement

Hi, I once had this problem. My freezer and refrigerator were both warm, but I could still hear it running. When the repair guy came out he immediately checked the back interior of the freezer (had to remove a panel) and it was entirely frozen solid with ice. He said the defroster had stopped working, which caused the coils to all freeze. It took him about an hour to get all of the ice off. He replaced the defroster. Total cost was around $250.00.We have a GE side by side Profile, about 8 years old. Works fine now.

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling


Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

Our freezer on our ge profile side by side is not staying cold


Pull the refrig out from the wall . Behind it you will see an 8 " X 10 " panel , held on by several screws . Unplug the refrig and remove the panel . On the control board , you will see a blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Unplug this plug . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire with both ends stripped about 1/4 " . Insert one end into wire2 and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . Open the freezer door and , at the bottom of the rear panel , do you see a red glow ? If no glow after about 1 min , then the defrost heater is probably bad . To replace this , you would have to remove the rear freezer panel , and under the coils , will be a glass tube . This is the heater . If you do see the red glow , then either the board or the #4 and #5 thermistor are bad . Start with the thermistors . Small 1" white cylinder , with 2 white wires going to them . One is clipped on top of the freezer coils , and the other is at the bottom of the freezer panel , inserted into a holder . These thermistors , tell the board the temp of coils , and freezer .

Freezer side not freezing


Turn off the refrigerator.Remove the freezer shelves/bins and rear panel.
Take a hair dyer and thaw the ice completely. The defrost heater will be across the bottom of the freezer coil. The defrost thermostat will be attached to a refrigerant coil at the top of the freezer coil.It is about the size of a quarter and 1/2 inch thick.There will be wires from top to bottom on the sides of the coil.

Frost build up in freezer and warm temp in a GE Profile TFX22PRXB


Modern refrigerators are designed to self defrost and it is essential to the airflow to have an evaporator coil that is clear for air movement. If the rear interior panel of the freezer has frost appearing, it is most likely a defrost problem and must be corrected before temperatures can be restored to normal. Your refrigerator most likely has a defrost timer located on bottom behind grate, or inside behind control panel. Could you find the correct model number so I can help you better. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look at following areas for the model number
  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top

GE GSL22JFPH BS refrigerator, coils icing up


I'm in the process of fixing the same problem on a GSS22JEPDWW right now. There are several parts in the defrost circuit that I can tell:
1) Defrost Heater
2) DefrostThermostat
3) Temp Sensor (Thermistor)
4) Main Control Board
I've replaced the Defrost Heater (remove back panel of freezer section - it's a stainless steel bracket that has a glass bulb in it) and it still doesn't work. The main control card provides power to the heater 4 times every 24 hrs for 25 minutes or so to defrost the evaporator coils. If all items are working, you'll see water in the drip catch at the bottom inside of the freezer compartment. Better yet, pull the refer away from the wall for 24 hrs and check if water is gathering below the plastic drain on the right rear of the refer in the pan. The water drips into a pan and the fan for the condensor coil evaporates it. Go to the www.ge.com website and look in the service section to find the parts diagram for your refer. You can then get a part number to buy the parts you need from a local parts store or the Internet.
I just bought the thermostat a few minutes ago and will try that next. Heater was $37, thermostat was $15. Sensor is about $20 and the control card is $140 (you can find on line for $95). I'm going down that path. If none of this works, it'll be in the dump in a week.
I've learned on-line GE refers are bad news. The control cards can fail repeartedly, althoough mine has worked for over 4 years. But, I won't ever buy another one since refers should last at least 15 years in my book. After $200, it doesn't pay to throw more good money after bad. I'll keep you posted on my results.
