    DO not fill with freon,, first remove inner back panel of freezer unit.
    If the coils are frozen over, you will need to unplug and manually de-frost with either time, or help from a fan.

    DO NOT attempt to physically remove ice from the unit.

    Check the rear compressor coil for dirt and dust and clean.

    Empty the ice-maker.

    When this is all done, replace the panels and parts.
    Set both cold controls to 5.
    Plug in, and wait for unit to stabilize. If it gets gets cold, the problem is in the defrost circuit, NOT freon or the compressor.

Ge tfx25jrbb-ww refridgerator not cooling

The first thing to check is if you can hear the fan running inside the freezer. This not only keeps the whole freezer cold it alspo circulates air down to the refrigerator keeping it cool as well.

Fridge part working freezer not

The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

My Hotpoint FFS70N refridgerator (out of guarantee) is malfunctioning. Both the upper fridge cabinet and the freezer cabinet are at room temperature despite the temperature settings (at cold). There is...

Hi and Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

There are many things that can cause your existing symptoms.

1. The Unit is controlled by an all-in-one control board that often is the main failure.
This l;ink is used as an example but is the control board for your unit:

2. The PTC Relay Device (Danfoss)
Part Link no picture: ptc-device.html">

3. The run capacitor: (Again no picture) 4 uf cap

4. The Thermistor PN 2601683 (not sure about part number as many conflicts with cross ref)

5. The actual compressor (1/5 hp) PN 2603850 or Type TWB1374MK

Any of the above can cause your problem. Check the compressor. If it is VERY hot to the touch unplug the unit for 30 minutes and then plug it in again.
If the compressor is cold the only thing you can do is start troubleshooting with the units wiring diagram and a meter.

I wish I could say _______ is causing your problem. Without testing components and knowing they are bad I can not say order _____ part. If your good with a meter and can locate the units tech sheet / wiring diagram you can isolate the failed part. Otherwise all I can say is what can cause your symptom as listed above.

Fridge isn't cold


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Freezer in nice and cold but refridgerator is not

due to lots of moisture in the air or high humidity it creates extra frost in the freezing unit this creates blockage in the air flow once the ice crystals build up. the freezer is what keeps the fridge at the normal temperature if the air flow between the two are blocked in the ducting then the fridge temperature will rise the best way to solve this is to open the freezer take out the 4 screws in the back panel tilt the panel forward and blow it with a blow dryer till the ice chunk has melted its a good idea to use a towel and on the top self of the fridge to obsorb excess water this can be kinda messy. or you can unplug your fridge for about 6 or so hours. good luck hope i helped. :)

Fridge not holding tempreture

if there is frost present on the rear vertical wall of the freezer compartment then the defrost function is broken and needs to be repaired the freezer is like an ice block and yo get cooling up to the refridgerator compartment air has to be able to flow and that can't happen if the frost is not eliminated
