Question about Refrigerators
I have a GE Refrigerator PFS22SISBSS, double door, bottom freezer. The mother board seems to be working ok, although I could be wrong. It reads the inside temp of the fridge fine and does not flash or anything like like. When you set the temp it turns on, clicks, and runs the fans in both the fridge and freezer, but the air coming through is not cool. The compressor is warm to the touch. There are two things that I noticed: 1. There is corrosion on a tube which comes off of the compressor. I'm not sure if this is a leak? and 2. The little fan in the back next to the compressor turns very slowly. Maybe this is normal? Here's a video on youtube which maybe will help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiRgae16Jvg
First off that "condenser fan motor" needs to be replaced. It is not running near the speed it needs to. (I replace those all the time on the job) Here is the replacement to order.Also, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the main control board is sticking in defrost and you will need to replace the main control board on the unit. GE has an updated control board that address's this problem along with some other issues the original control board had.Here is the updated board to order.
All the parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.
Keep me posted!

Ended up having a freon leak in tubing around door. Luckly the warranty was 5 years in sealed system. New one was FREE.

There is a service bulletin related to this, dealing with deformation / melting of the lamp cover. The fix is to change the lamp wire harness to one that now has a thermal protector incorporated in it (part number 6621JK2003B) along with changing the main PCB board to one that uses a larger relay for this function (part number 6871JB1423N).
In case you want or need to replace the following,
The lamp cover is part number 3110JA1096A and the lamp holder is part number 3034JA1009A
I tried to cut and paste a few photo's, but was unsuccessful. Sorry. Make sure to test that fans and light switches work after part changes.

SOURCE: Slow compressor fan
You need to remove the fan and test it somewhere different. The compressor is in need of the condenser fan. Everything will overheat without that fan working. You should also test the power at that pin plug. Let me know what you find. Sea Breeze
