GE frig cooling problems

I have a GE TFX22P. Both freezer and fresh are not cooling. Frid side is in the 50 degrees. The repairman said it was not the heater defroster. No ice build-up. He said it was low on freon and might have a tiny leak. He put freon in it and it did get much colder but the refrigerator compressor and fan run constantly. Is that normal? Then he said after he put the freon in that the compressor tested poorly and I needed a new compressor. 500 dollars for the part. If freon worked doesn't that mean I have a leak? Why would I want a new compressor if I had a leak, or does adding extra freon cover up symptoms of a bad compressor. I am a woman ...lol. ....please help. I can't afford not doing the right thing. Should I buy a new frig? I am worried that I will blow money on a condensor and still have a freon leak. How long will it take for freon to leak back out? What should I do? Thanks so very much for any help. I need it badly

This Refrigerator was charged with leak dye about 4 month before it leaked out again. Got service call, there was sticker dated 4 month ago, thats what honest company do, even if other company will come out they able to see when it was charged with freon and if they add leak dye. Got my blue flash light - found right away dye, spayed with soap - bubbles right on the spot, replaced piece of copper tube - leak fixed! call right service man at first!

GE TFX22P Refrigerator Evaporator Fan


Fun run as long as the compressor runs and you do not need to worry about it. the only thing you need to verify are the temperatures in the refrigerator and and freezer compartment: below 40-F, and below 0-F
if temp ok, do not wory about it.

I can help you diagnose the problems with your GE. Several things can cause these symptoms. All you need is a voltage meter patience and a want to, to repair and do it better than a paid technician. In most cases with the PSS26MSRSS the defrost heater is the cause for this. Look into rear of your freezer and back wall. Is Ice or frost building on rear wall? If yes unplug and prepair to remove contents in freezer compartment. Remove rear panel in freezer and use hair dryer to defrost ice until the defrost heater is visible. BRB , Sea Breeze

Whirlpool refrig not cooling


is the fan in the freezer working when compressor is on? if not you need to replace it. do you have a large frost build up on the back wall of the freezer? if so you have a defrost problem, or back to the evaporator fan. If the fan is working you have a defrost problem which could mean a bad heater, timer, or bad defrost thermostat....

Doesn't cool fresh food


It´s probably overloaded. Any refrigerator has a specific cooling capacity eg x Kg/24hours. you must check that capacity and charge acording to that.

yes it could. you again have a defrosting problem. do you noticed frost at the back side of the freezer section? the repairman could have replaced your heating element and your defost timer.
