GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Hello, no if the compressor is still running and you are not hearing the click you should be ok. It will take approx 8-10 hours for it to get to normal temp. The frost you mention on the freezer panel could be a problem with the defrost system. I would leave it over night and check it tomorrow. If there is a major ice build up comment back and i will assist you further. Mike

Blowing cold air but not cold enough to keep frige cold


if one of the panels in the fridge has frost on it, the evaporator coils may be iced up. this restricts the cold air flow. to defrost: empty the fridge and freezer, turn it off, remove the panel in the freezer that has the frost, use a hairdryer and defrost the ice buildup, sop up excess water, dry it up, replace the panel, turn it on (while it's empty), set the temp halfway, and close the doors. when the compressor turns off, fill the fridge. if the panels are frostless and the coils are warm, you may be out of refrigerant from a freon leak somewhere. it might be cheaper to replace the fridge.

Freezer & Fridge working, center pillion hot


Check the condenser fan from the back. It's underneath near the compressor. It should run when the compressor runs.
To see if your defrost is not working take the back off the inside of the freezer to see if there is ice buildup blocking the air flow. A light frosting on the enitire coil is normal

Frost build up behind/inside back freezer panel


I have same problem, it usually happens after someone leaves door open too long or after 4-6 months. I usually place two frozen milk jugs full of water in the upper fridge and tape the upper fridge door closed at night before bed so the kids don't open and let the upper food get warm., Unplug the fridge and open the freezer and remove all drawers (place excess frozen food in freezer in garage) , leaving the freezer open with a towel in the bottom to catch the melting water from the back panels inside and the next morning wipe the fridge bottom clean and plug it back up and replace everything. I hate that I paid so much for this fridge and have to defrost a couple times a year. However found out too late to return back to the store. It seams like it should have a cycle that heats the back plate every so often to warm and evaporate the ice that collects, but I haven't heard or can't find anything on that.

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

Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough


You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
