My GE side by side refrigerator, model TFX25ZPit runs continuously, does not shut off, how can I fix?


My advice is usually to start simple. Take the bottom cover off and vacuum the coils that are probably covered with dust. That will help your refrigerator function better.

According to DoItYourself.com:
"Troubleshooting a refrigerator that runs continuously requires an understanding of how the refrigerator works. By definition, a refrigerator is one of the few appliances within your home that has to run on a continuous basis. If the refrigerator is not running, it will not be able to keep food cold, which will lead to spoilage and waste. The way refrigerators are built to run on a constant basis, they break down on an infrequent basis.
When a refrigerator experiences problems or seems to be breaking down, there are some steps that can be taken to troubleshoot the problem. A continuously running refrigerator is indicative of a problem with one of the components within the refrigerator that needs to be assessed in order to determine the proper fix. In order to properly troubleshoot problems with your refrigerator that runs continuously, an understanding of how the refrigerator works is in order.
Condenser and Evaporator Coil The refrigerator consists of a condenser coil and an evaporator coil. It is kept cold by a liquid coolant that is pumped between the condenser and evaporator through the use of a compressor and motor. The coolant moves from the condenser where it is cooled into the evaporator. The condenser coils inside the refrigerator can be seen on the outside of the appliance while the evaporator coil is located inside the refrigerator.
The Role of the Heater and Thermostat Frost and condensation rarely builds up inside the refrigerator. A heater inside the refrigerator melts any frost that may occur inside the refrigerator long before it ever appears. This melting of frost takes place at various stages inside the refrigerator. After the melting process that takes place with the heater, the thermostat is engaged to set the refrigerator at its proper cooling temperature, keeping frost from building up.
Identifying Specific Problems Most of the parts that make up the compressor and evaporator units inside the refrigerator, consisting of thermostats, the heater, condenser, fans and various switches, are easy to identify and replace. The trick to troubleshooting the refrigerator that runs continuously is to listen for noises and sounds that occur and seem unusual to you. A loud running refrigerator or constant churning of ice when the ice makes is not engaged can indicate problems with the motors or compressors that need to be replaced immediately.
Addressing Problems with a Continuously Running Refrigerator Nearly all problems that can be uncovered by troubleshooting your refrigerator can be fixed by most every do-it-yourselfer. Those problems with your refrigerator running constantly that involves the coils located outside or inside the refrigerator should be handled by a professional repair technician. This is because the coils contain the refrigerant that can be dangerous if you are exposed to it accidentally during the course of a repair. If you notice a problem with the refrigerator or a constant running that seems to be getting progressively worse over time, the best way to address the issue is to isolate the problem and fix it."

Fan in cooling compartment


The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.

Hissing sound and constantly running generator


The only thing I can think of that you may be hearing would be if the compressor has a problem. If you notice cooling performance decrease or it stops cooling, I believe you will find the compressor has bad internal valves. It will probably take a technician to properly diagnose this and if the compressor has this problem the only answer is to replace the compressor.
I hope this helps, supertechks
