This GE Fridge Model# TFX22JAYA is a really simple fridge, but i've managed to not understand how it works. I took a call that it wasn't cooling, defrosted the evaporator and installed a new heater, limit and defrost timer and left (I left both contols in the middle position 5 and C).
This morning the customer called back and said that the fridge wasn't cool enough. I went back out to find the 'fresh food' side at 9-the coldest setting. and the Freezer control at 'E' the coldest setting. The freezer was -5 degrees and the fresh food side was 48 degrees.
I took apart the mechanical damper and looked at how it works, when the 'Freezer' is on 'E' the coldest setting, the damper is closed all the way, this makes the fresh food side warm, right? It seems like the 'Fresh Food' label and 'Freezer' labels are backwards?
Is the capillary tube supposed to be coiled up right behind the contol in the fresh food section?
I left the job today with the mechanical damper all the way to the right, or toward the 'A' so the damper was wide open and hopefully the fresh food side will get to 37degrees. I left the knob at '5' for what they are calling the fresh food section.
