This happened to me with my side by side. The repair man came to my house, said that GE have cheap refrigerators because they are not meant to last very long. The mother board that controlled the temperature went out. A component in my freezer would get frosted up, but the heater would not kick in to reduce the freezing. Everything starts to warm up in the refrigerator as a result. A new motherboard would get the refrigerator back in timing.

SOURCE: Refrigerator warm, freezer too cold

I had this same problem. You need to totally empty the fridge and freezer and allow it to defrost for 24 hours. Then put it back on and it will work. This happens if someone leaves the freezer door open and then it gets closed. The defrosted water freezes in the pipes and doesn't allow the cold air to move up into the fridge so the freezer gets even colder. This has happened to me twice!

Check the compressor.
Unplug for 15-20 min. plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will have to be behind the ref to listen and make sure you hear the compressor start and not just a fan running. If you hear a clicking noise then the compressor relay is bad.

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the inside back panel of the freezer. See if there is ice built up. If so, you have a problem with the defrost. 85% of the time, it's caused by a bad heater. It could be the termination thermostat, timer or fan. If the ice is built up. Take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. If you want, you can now check the heater and termination thermostat. It's a closed switch that opens on the rise. If you fix it your self or not, To save your food. You can replace the panel and turn the fridge back on, it will operate correctly for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to either get the part and fix it or for someone to get out and repair.

    Freezer runs continuously. It never shuts off. Freezer is cold and items stay frozen, but it is always running.

    if the freezers staying cold but not the refrige section,then its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section thats either frozen shut or the damper door motor is bad or without power,if nothings cold as in freezer and refrigerator sections,then its the ptc overload & relay on the compressor thats bad,unplug the ptc overload & relay off the side of the compressor and obtain an exact replacement and plug in the new replacement and it will again cool

    Freezer cold fridge warm


    sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

    The fridge does not seem to be cold.


    if just the refrige isnt cold,check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments and see if its open to let in cold air from freezer,if not sometimes they freeze shut and cant operate with temperature setting changes/if nothings cold,then replace the ptc overload relay located on the compressor body,it just unplugs off the compressor

    . Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM). If heavily iced up...

    How to check everything
    http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
    If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

    check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

    You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

    Refrigerator does not get cold enough 50 degrees.


    HI,

    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.
    any further question let me know.

    thanks.
