There is a thermostat that closes when the coil gets to a set temperature and that brings on the fan. That way the fan does not blow warm air into the refrigerator. Simular to the time delay on the blowers on high efficency unit. By the way I'm a HVAC/R Technician too. Thanks for using FixYa.

My condensor fan hums but it will run if i give it a little turn. The motor is free but seems hot after running for 5min. The compressor it warm but lines out are not hot or cold for evap side and coil,


Start by shutting the unit off, before any more damage is done. Locate the run capacitor for the fan. It is a silver colored can, typically with two wires coming off the terminals. (sometimes 3). Mark and record the wire locations. The capacitor will have a part number and will be marked either 370VAC or 440 VAC and will have a rating in microfarads.

Bring the capacitor to an electrical or HVAC supply house and get an exact replacement. Install the new capacitor, close the unit up and re-power. If you are lucky, the fan will run, as normal. If not, you'll have to replace the fan motor. Capacitors are cheap, so, in my opinion, it is worth a try.

HELP!!__CALLING ANY GE FACTORY TECHS


You say " all thermistors check fine " , how did you check them ? Did you check for the 5-8 DC volts at the main control board , for the thermistors ? Did you do the diagnostic check for the thermistors from the control panel ? I'm sure you know there are 5 thermistors , since the refrig has the dual evap . Possibly the # 5 is bad , since it is the freezer temp " controller " , yet if it tells the board it's not cold enough , it still sends refrigerant to the refrig evap . Since the refrig evap has 2 fan motors , can't remember if there is a damper there also . Maybe when the # 3 thermistor is satisfied , it only cuts the fans off , even though refrigerant is still going thru the refrig evap .

Fan in freezer not working


It runs when the compressor runs except when it's in the defrost cycle. If you have an electronic control instead of a defrost timer the control could be the problem since it runs the fans. You can test the evaporator fan. See how here> How to check everything

Refrigerator has a clicking sound and does not run


Replace the motherboard (part # WR55X10942) but be careful to check that the evaporator fan (inside the freezer) turns on when you power up the refrig again. A bad evaporator fan motor can take out the motherboard. If compressor starts with new board but not evap fan, unplug immeadiatelly and replace the evap fan motor to save new board.
