Question about Turbo Air Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Turbo Air TGF-9F, a single compartment top slide freezer. Picture a rectangle, the right side keeps frozen (frost on the walls) and left is room temp not trying to get cold. Any Solutions?

If you look at the walls, the exact median point of the unit you can see frozen/ice on the right and room temp on the left. Any idea how to get the "broken" side to cool or explain why the vast difference of temperature exactly at the median point?

Could be blocked by ice formation. Leave switched off for a few hours with the door open to allow to defrost.

Your condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system may be plugged with dust. The condenser is more than likely located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel. Remove the panel and clean it out. Reinstall the panel after you have cleaned the condenser.

Check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If there is frost buildup on the back wall it indicates that there is a problem in the defrost circuit.

Note: The proper term is "More mature individual" , not old.

SOURCE: Fridge and Freezer Not getting Cold

Your defrost system is at fault.
With this brand it is most likely the defrost thermostat and defrost heater located behind the back freezer panel.
Remove the shelves and bin,then remove the freezer panel. Defrost the ice manually.
Replace the thermostat and heater assembly.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

if ice is on the door and ceiling and frozen water dropleats on the food packages the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen.when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not it could be bad or iced up,if the ice is on the inside back wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,get back to me and tell me if the ice or like snow is just on the back wall or if the door was left open ice will be on ceiling ,door and shelves and food packages,also that's not a good model number if the freezer is on top look at the left wall up near the ceiling in the fridge section,you should see a tag there with the model number.

Hello Otis,
Thier is only one fan in the freezer that circulates the air throughout both ref/freezer. I dont know if ya have a side by side or if freezer on top..but if side by side one possible cause would be the damper in the upper left corner of the refrig. compartment is stuck closed so no air can enter ref.compartment(no damper if freezer on top or even if older model side by side) on either model also even if freezer on the bottom, another possible thing is frost has built up in the freezer and the coil in freezer is a huge block of frost and no air can poass through it because its totally frozen.

Let me know which might be the problem and i will help ya check that EI..is the damper stuck..is it all frosted up and ya can see frost on back plate of freezer wall ect ect..

Easiest way is to push against the vertical portion of the ice tray holder until it slides
off the buttons which are inserted into the top of the freezer compartment.

These models sometimes had issues with defrost timers (which I just replaced one today) and Defrost termination thermostats (which is clipped on to a tube behind freezer panel).
Make sure the freezer coils are not frozen up solid, if so use a hair dryer to defrost them
and make sure the vent is not iced over.
Model and serial are in the lower compartment on the left wall. In case you need to go to
the appliance parts store.
Hope this helps.

Freezer compartment has ice while refrigerator compartment not cooling


the freezer blows cold air into the fridge section and then it returns,first open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,next from the bottom remove the second bin or draw and put your hand on the back wall,is there like snow or ice on the back wall,if so you have a defrost problem,you could have a bad timer,thermostat or a bad heater,also check the packages and the shelves,if you see frozen water droplets the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen up and the cold air can't be blown over to the fridge side.get back to me and tell me what you find and i can help you figure out what's happening

If it's frosted up, it's best to defrost manually with heat gun. Find the timer and advance until it goes back into defrost. The timer looks like a residential fridge. It cut the compressor off and the heaters on.
