All the food in the left is not very cold at all and the freezer seems to be working fine, maybe a little cooler. I saw the posts for another GE fridge but the model is TFX22CRDA-WW the one in the post is TFX22CRDA-BB. I need part numbers and how to instructs. If anyone could help that'd be awesome!!!!!!!

Sounds like you have a defrost problem, the evaperator in the freezer is clogged with ice. You will need to take everything out of the freezer and remove the rear panel to see if it is clogged with ice. If it is, defrost ALL this with your blow dryer, and then turn it back on.  It will cool for 2-5 days, in the meantime let us know when you have done this for further instructins.

    Call the guy.  oops, Person.  After you remove the drawers you will have to remove some screws.  Are you up to it? 

    The force is telling me you need a WR51x442... But then again.. I'm just guessing

Removed it and its completely covered in ice. I'll go ahead and defrost it. Will it work again after it has been defrosted and is there a drain plug for the water to run into?

Okay it's completely defrosted now what? I got this fridge from a friend who got it when he bought a house so th original owner probably knew it was broke that's probably why it worked for 2 mo. and then froze over. Sound like I'm right?

It will cool for 2-3 days or so, have lots of towels handy as will over flow the drain pan underneath.  Then when it is cooled back down, set your controls half way, like normal.  We will have you check if it is the timer, heater, or deforst termination thermostat.  When you get all of the ice removed see if the heater at the bottom of the coil you are defrosting is broken, it is glass. These all break.

What do you mean it will cool for a few days or so? Do you mean the fridge will work for a few days and then start draining water?

The ice you are defrosting now will turn to water which will be running all over your floor.  be sure the box is turned off for now.  After all of the ice is removed and you get everything dry, see if the glass defrost heaters are broken, this might be your problem.  Then you can put the box back together and turn it back on and it will cool ok for 2-3 days till it freezes up again till you can get the parts and replace them at which time you will have to defrost it again.

they are located below the coil and perhaps another one half way up from the bottom, in silver brackets.

With the box unplugged, remove this heater and have it checked to see if it is broken.  If it is replace it.  If it checks ok, you have a different problem and you will be reinstalling this heater, very carefully so it does not get broken,

How do you check to see if it is broken or not? So it is the tube that has a wire that connects into each end? Do I just unplug the wire from the tube? Please let me know! Thanks for your help by the way!!!!

You will need to unhook the heater bracket from the frig and unplug the 2 wires and have it checked if you do not have an ohm meter to check it with.  Do not touch the glass with your hands in case it is not broken, handle it with the ends or the bracket, if it is in one.
