Question about GE GSL25JFPBS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Blower in freezer keeps cycleing between High & low speed (for 3 days now)

The manual talks about whirring noises, but this situation has continued for 3 days. This can not be good for the blower motor. Any ideas?

    Also Found a note in the Service manual stating that rapid evaporator fan speed changes are abnormal (any changes quicker than 1 minute)

Mkasper, the fan takes a least 1 minute to change speeds. If your motor is changing speeds in less than that time frame I believe you have a board issue. I've seen this many times on GE's. Changing of the board corrected the problem. back

    I am confirming the board was the issue.

3 speed fan barely changes speed

You are talking about your blower fan for the air conditioner and heater right? More information will be needed to solve the problem.

When you say it barely changes speeds, does that mean it doesnt speed up, or doesnt slow down? By that I mean, is it "stuck" on low, or high?

Most blower fans run at different speeds through the use of a multi-stage resistor built into the fan switch circuit. Low speed is a high value resistor, medium speed is a low value one, and high speed is the fan running without any resistance.

If your fan is running on high and doesnt seem to want to run on lower speeds, the resistor pack may be failing. If the fan is running on low speed only, it may be that the fan itself is beginning to fail, or that the lubricant in it has gotten gummy.

Blower just started staying on - furnace has been turned of for 6 months

This is a diagram of a blower relay and a fan motor, the normally closed fan relay switch goes to the low speed which is the Heat speed, the low speed is controllled by a temperature delay depicted in the low speed circuit.
The normally open fan relay switch goes to the high speed, which is the AC modes speed , also if you run the fan continuously via the fan switch on the thermostat this is also to high speed.

I suspect the temperature delay's on setting is being reached thus cycling the low speed of the fan.

High pitched whirring noise in motor/fan?

the bearings in the motor are going bad. you probably need a new fan motor.

Spin cycle works sometimes, or does not spin hard enough to remove most of water

Many high-end washers have two spin cycle speeds. The low speed is for delicate fabrics. Yours may be stuck in the low speed. Check that you are selecting the wash cycle with the high speed spin.

If you are and it continues to spin at the low speed then your controller is most likely at fault. Your gearbox could be bad too but it usually complains with a lot of noise.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

GE refridgerator fan speed changes constantly

I will try to answer your question . Your refrigerator had 3 thermistors in the refrig side , and 2 in the freezer side . These thermistors , send resistance messages to the main control board , mounted on the back of the refrigerator . If say #1 thermistor tell the board , I need to be colder , then the board will tell the damper ( small vent in the top of refrig section ) , to open . If the #2 thermistor tells the board , I need to be colder , then the board tells the fan to speed up , to get more air to the refrigerator section . #3 thermistor , works with the turbo cool switch , turning the fan to a high speed also . If the thermistors tell the board , we're all fine , then the fan will slow down , but still circulate to make/keep the freezer colder . If the freezer thermistors say , we're ok also , then the refrigerator will cycle off , until a thermistor asks to be cooler again . The fan works off D C voltage , in which fan speed is regulated (faster or slower) , by the thermistors "talking" to the control board .

Replaced blower motor, now runs continuously.

Run's continuously ? High speed , low , med 1,2, 3 . ????
Probably the high speed relay contact's stuck closed . The fuse for the high blower is hot at all times , low blower fuse is hot only with key on. It sparks becaused the motor turns on . If it had a short the fuse would blow . The blower motor relay is part of the resistor pack near the blower motor .
