GE Profile CF24W-PL

Refrigerator side failure; freezer still still freezes but seems to progressively becoming warmer.  
Many thanks.

Our refrigerator will not cool below 48 degrees, but freezer is working fine. We set the fridge to turbo cool, which helps, but the unit will not cool properly.

Make sure the fan inside the freezer is running. If so, remove the cover from the back of inside of the freezer. If it is clogged with frost you have a defrost circuit problem. Most likely the defrost heater mounted at the bottom of the evaporator coil is burned out.
Post back with any questions and let me know what you find.
Thanks/Mike

Its simple really,, Your refrigator needs re gassing,, call a professional and he will regas it.

When the gas is running low the fridge cools less and less and eventually will not cool at all when the gas is depleated. Its a natural process and any aircondition or refrigation professional should be able to come to your house and gas up the refrigator , a process that takes a few minutes.. I dont recommend you attempt to do it your self, as it will not take a whole can of gas and if by chance you use the wrong type you will spiol the compressor

cheers

Freezer side seems to work but the refrigerator side isn't


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Refrigerator not cold enough and freezer is too cold making food very hard? water seems to leaking on bottom of freezer and refrigerator.


Refrigerators with attached freezers typically keep the two compartments at predetermined temperatures, but failure of some components can lead the refrigerator to seem warm while the freezer portion completely freezes.

Fan Issues
According to the appliance website Appliance Aid, many freezers contain a fan that blows cold air throughout the freezer and into the attached refrigerator. If this fan fails, the site explains that the freezer may become too cold; the refrigerator will not receive air circulation from the freezer, though, and will remain warmer than normal.

Air Damper
Appliance Aid also notes that most refrigerator and freezer combinations contain a damper that regulates the flow of air between the two compartments. If the damper sticks or fails to function properly, it may restrict the flow of air from the freezer to the refrigerator. The result of a failed damper would be a completely frozen freezer and a warmer than normal refrigerator.

Hope this would help.

Good day!

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.

Refrigerator not cooling sufficiently/ Freezer not freezing


Yes, if defrost board is bad it will cause problems. Need to listen for fan inside the freezer compartment also. If freezer does not defrost cold air will not circulate properly causing warmer temperatures inside refrigerator. Is model number SXD524VW ?
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Not cooling or freezing


When the compressor is running, both the fan inside the freezer and the fan down by the compressor should be running. If OK, look for frost on the back wall of the freezer, indicating a probable defrost heater failure. If yes, remove back metal cover in freezer, defrost with hair blower, replace defrost heater (the thing at the bottom of the freezer coils with two wires going to it)
If no to these, send me an "ask me" follow up question.

Freezer not freezing


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, controls should be in the middle setting, you can try turning freezer to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
