Cam risers just on the bottom.  Remove the toe panel on the front bottom and there will be some way to adjust the front of the box up.

Seems should have a top and bottom section cam riser and a door stop under each of the doors, of course models are different so will have to get the ones for your model.

My door hinges looked in good shape.  The door stops are not working because the cam riser were broken out and the door stops are now below the hinges (bypassing the hinge completely). The doors are free swinging due to the lack of a cam riser.  I guess when it broke, someone picked up the broken piece and threw it out (covering up evidence).  Children are so great to have around :?.

Im set now.  While waiting for parts, I will investage how to remove the freezer door to install the cam riser.  The water line runs thru bottom hinge and the electric harness thru the top hinge.  Both will need to be disconnected. It appears that after draining the water, the complete washer, riser & hinge must slide over the water line (without breaking, crimping or cracking it else water line replacement).  Must be a trick in doing this.

Thanks for all of your help.

Scotty

You are correct. They probably didnt want to know what the black plastic was.  As when the door was opened swiftly and hard, and now not bouncing on the cam riser as normal.  :shock:   :huh:

I will post again when Ive completed the installation & testing.

Done..  I replaced the thermostat and retested the defrost system.  It worked!!  The old heaters came on and remained on for about 12 minutes.  The timer restarted the refridge after about 20 min.   I will return my new defrost heaters as I didnt need them.  Should have retested a second time with the Ohm meter before I purchased the heater. My original testing showed 0 ohms.  Dont know why but  tell everyone to disconnect and retest  all equipment  before purchasing.

The coil had an even coat frost on them but no ice after about of week of use.  The frost covered the entire coil.  The original block of ice must have occurred during a storm when power was lost.  Dont know for sure but it has not returned.  I will recheck during the holiday season.

Then, I replaced the riser and washers. The doors are now working like new..  I noticed the hinges were covered with very dirty grease. Cleaned them up but dont know if I can use auto brake grease or silicon on them.. Will look at home depot for some type appliance grease.

Yes, I now have a working GE refrigerator..  Amazing!!    :bananadance:       No visits to the appliance store yet...  And my wife can continue to buy stuff for now..  ;)    Thank you Pegi for all of your help...

I found this post to be EXTREAMLY helpful!  My symptoms exactly matched Scotty's in that the freezer was very cold, but the fresh food side was barely cold.  A thermometer showed it chilling down only to the high 40's F. 

My frige is a GE side-by-side model TFX22CRDA WW

I checked the damper up top and it was clear, no blockage.  Same for the air return down by the veggie drawer.  I pulled the ice bin out and removed the fan guard.  the fan was spinning but when I put my hand above it, there wasn't much airflow.  Hmmm.

Empty the freezer and remove the back panel per the suggestions posted in this thread and here is what I found!

I got out a hair dryer and thawed the two cores (one up and one down lower).  The centers of both cores melted easily, the bottom and sides were solid chunks. 

I then removed the defrost heater at the very bottom of the two cores (two screws and a wire at each end that simply unplugs.  The glass tube of the heater was broken into two pieces!  Obviously THIS needed replaced.  So I ordered up a new one and snapped this pic of the bad heater (bottom, the glass tube is blackened and actually cracked in half on the left side) and the new heater (glass tube clear with silver heater windings visible inside). 

Simply connect the wires and screw the new heater in place!  Reassemble and reload the freezer.  I'll know over the next day or so if the broken defrost heater was the only problem or if there are other issues hiding in the bushes.

Great!! Im happy someone else with a GE is gained benefits from this post.  I surely did!!

The thermostat will be the next thing to go, due to the strain from the broken defroster.  But otherwise, you should see many years of great use.  My refridgerator has been ice cold ever since the repairs with NOOOO problems...

Good Luck with yours...
