GE DL213908 Side by Side Refrigerator not freezing or cooling properly


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

Why is my Fridgidare side-by-side freezer working but my refrigerator side not cooling?


Hi Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your question!

If the temperature in the freezer compartment of your Frigidaire refrigerator is cooling but the refrigerator side is not, it may possibly be because the temperature control is set too cold/high in the freezer section or the damper door is not closing. Turn the control to a warmer setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. If the temperature does not stabilize within 24 hours, then more than likely the control is not telling the damper when to close and/or your refrigerator might possibly have a faulty thermistor or temperature control. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your refrigerator to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

The freezer is cool but not freezing, the food is mushy.


Either temperature not set to required cooling OR the fridge or freezer door not closed properly, OR the weak compressor.----------- The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. This are basic possibilities which first needs to be checked. But if this possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My kenmore sid by side frige has lost all power the recepticle i use is fine.it's less than 2 yrs.old


Reset the circuit breaker or fuse and ensure the fuse has a 15 amp time-delay to provide enough power to the refrigerator.
Ensure the temperature control knob is turned past "0" and is set at a temperature cool enough to require motor function from the refrigerator.
Wait 20 minutes and check the power on the refrigerator again, as the unit may be in a defrost cycle, which may make it seem as if it was turned off.
if that doesn't work, and your sure you have power to the plug itself,, contact the searsdirect.com
they have an online chat repair

My fridg keeps running why?


Please check the settings of the temperature control switch (Thermostat). It should not be on the max cool. If it is so move it to less cool. If the situation does not improve then your thermostat switch is defective as it is not cutting the power when the required temperature is reached.

My GE side-by-side refrigerator & freezer is not cooling.


Good day,
If it's been on for a while, the compressor should be warm. If the compressor has a relay box mounted on it's side, remove the cover, and pull off the relay, and overload and take them to an appliance parts house to be tested. If defective replace. If O.K. then .....
The compressor windings are out and the compressor is bad, or the motherboard on the back rear of the machine under a cover has failed.
Either case requires a service tech to properly test.
