Dear Samarai,

I have a GE side by side refrigerator model # TFX25PRYD WW .

 

First the fridge side began warming up. I followed your instructions of checking the defrost timer and it was okay. I also checked the heater and found it questionable. I follwed your advice and replaced both. I also found out that the light in my fridge never turns off and I repaired that as well. It then began to work better but it keeps running and does not switch off. The defrost timing is good, so I replaced the thermostat twice and nothing changed. I am able to turn it off manually. When I turn it back on it will come back on at the right temperature.   So my problem now is that the temperature in the fridge will go down to 37 degrees and the freezer side goes to about 10 degrees until the evaporators freeze up. Could I have purchased 2 bad thermostats in a row?  Could I be installing the thermostat wrong? Any ideas of what the problem could be?

Thank you,

K
