    What does diy's mean? The condenser seems to be working OK. Freezer is still working, refrigeration is not cooling.

Hi,

In most instances where the freezer is working but the fridge is not is caused by failure of cold air flow due to:

  • defective, stuck, iced over blower fan;
  • clogged, obstructed, iced over air pathway/tunnel (in some);
  • air vent/port blocked;
  • defective fridge thermostat.
All of the above require disassembly and test of some parts which would be a DIY (do-it-yourself). Should you be uncomfortable performing this and unfamiliar with electrical/electronic components, circuitry and tests, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

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.

GE side by side refrigerator not working properly. Fresh food side is warm. Freezer side is at 9 degrees. What could be the problem?


Check for ice buildup at back of freezer. If so then auto defrost mechanism is not working. Check for bad defrost timer, heater, and defrost thermostat.

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.

Time to unplug the refrigerator. We need to check the compressor, start capacitor and start relay. If you do not unplug until we solve the problem the internal overload inside the compressor will be damaged. I am ready to help you on this just let me know, Sea Breeze
