    Why did you send me to a computer expert instead of a refrigerator expert? I have a 13 year old Model TFX27ILB GE refrigerator. The freezer is working fine but the refrigerator won't get below 60 degrees. Please help

Hi,

Due to the size of most 27 cu ft refrigerators, the design calls for the use of two (2) evaporator fans. The fans draw cold air from the freezer section and blows it to the refrigerator section. It is possible that one of the fans has failed and therefore the area where that fan is located is not getting as much cold air as the other side. Corrective measure requires that the said fan be replaced.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My ge GSS22WGMCBB is not getting cold eonough - frig reads 60 degrees, freezer reads 38 degrees. What can be wrong? It's 10 years old...should I get it fixed or replace it?


either the compressor isn't running due to a faulty PTC overload relay on the compressor body or a bad compressor itself,you can test the compressor with an ohmmeter between the 3 terminals on the side of the compressor PTC is mounted,if its ok then it can be a defrost problem where its not melting the evaporator ice and blocking the cold air flow remove the inner rear wall of the freezer and test the defrost heater located below the evaporator coil as G.E. defrost heaters are notorious for failing,if its ok,then the defrost terminator on top of this coil can be bad(open)to test this component it needs to be below 15 degrees temperature to show good(closed) if ok then the mainboard located in the rear back of the unit can be defective because it controls all the units functions

Unit is about 10 years old, bought new from Lowes. When I open the doors the bar or middle frame is warm to hot. Now the freezer and refrigerator is not cold. Ice started to melt down so I removed the ice...


I suspect the warm to hot is from a heater that keeps moisture from from condensing on that bar. you don't notice it when the unit is working properly. Make sure your condenser fan is running and that condenser is clean. You may have a compressor that is failing

It sounds like the fan is not circulating the air from the freezer to the fridge. Since it's new then you should contact the store where you purchased it for exchange or repair immediately.
