Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

GE TBX18SKE REFRIGERATOR IS AROUND 55F AND THE FREEZER IS AROUND 22F. I took the heating tube out and did a continuity test, tested good, visually it looks great. I cannot seem to locate the defrost timer. I put a new thermostat switch, the one that clips on the coils behind the freezer cover. I would just replace the heater and the defrost timer if I could just locate the darn thing, it doesn't seem to be behind the temp controls in the fridge either. Can anyone help?

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I have had my fridge for about 7 years and ever since I bought this fridge I have to defrost it every 6-8 months because water starts seeping out the bottom under the crisper basket.

We just replaced the defrost timer on our Kitchenaid built-in 48 inch refrigerator Model #KSSC48MHS00, on Monday. Now it seems to be cooling properly, but is still barely making ice. We removed the top front grill on Wednesday, and then it made little ice, as if it's too warm with it in place. It still isn't working optimally. The freezer temp is now about 20 degrees, and the fridge still seems like it's not cold enough, set at Level 4. Could there be another thing that may be going out?
