    You will need to check the relay on the compressor. Pull it off and shake it. If it rattles, it is bad.

hmmmm no thats peculiar it will slow down and start back each time the doors are open also fan will turn on even if fridge is turned off if a door is opened londer than 3 mins. If the fan still operates irradicly even in the liner protect mode (turn refrig off open door for 3 mins, fan turns on) then the main board is faulty not uncommon for these refrigs.

SOURCE: GE GSL25JFR Freezer fan noise.

You are correct in believing the fan is going to be a problem. The evaporator fans inside the freezer compartment are common at going bad. I believe it is due to the extreme temperature and moisture conditions inside the application. The noise is the stator or bearing equivalent going out, the speed should remain constant. It may eventually make a screeching noise upon start up, or just lock up completely. The good news is replacements are relatively cheap and easy to find. If you do replace it yourself, make sure the fan blades are blowing in the right direction. If possible, remove the old one and bring it with you to the local appliance parts supplier and he should be able to help you get the right one, it will probably be a kit of some sort with multiple mounting brackets, screws, and maybe even a couple of blades. don't let this intimidate you. Most of this you will not use.

SOURCE: we have a gsh25jftfww ge fridge. the temperature

Your refrig uses a main control board that is on a recall list .The board uses a WR55X10552 . The replacement board is WR55X10656 . I would suggest calling GE factory service and they will cover this under warrenty , due to the recall .

Refirdgerator won't cool proprely on refridgerator side


Hi SN,

This could be a couple of things, but you should check for evaporator icing, even though you said the freezer is working and the defrost control appears to be ok. If the evaporator is iced up, no air willl flow into the fridge section even if the fan is running.

You can also check the damper control board. I am sending you a link that shows a complete breakdown of your appliance. I do not work for this company nor am I affiliated with them in any way. They also have a troubleshooting section and contact information. See:

Freezer temp reaches 20 degrees refridgerator wont go under 50 degrees on gas or ac dometic rm2807


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Freezer seems to be working fine, but the refridgerator is cool at best with the thermostat all the way down. I tried to defrost, but with no help. I think the fan in the freezer might be bad.


The only place that cools in a refrigerator is the freezer. The refridgerator side stills cold from the freezer via an air duct that runs from the freezer to the refridgerator. If your fan in the freezer compartment is not working your refridgerator side will not work. To replace the fan you will need to clean out the freezer including the shelving. Then remove the back panel all you need is a phillips screw driver. When the back is replaced the fan is at the top. It is held in by two screws that go threw rubber mounts on the fan braces. You will need to remove one ground wire and two electric wires on the motor its self. Make sure to unplug the refrigerator before starting the repair. good luck

Freezer working, but refridgerator is not cold. The fan works.


You most likely have a failure in the defrost circuit. One or more of thee possibilities: Heating element, defrost timer and/or defrost thermostat.

My Refridgerator/freezer is not working


Sounds as if the compressor is not running even tho the fans are. The overload relays on the side of the compressor are usually the source of this problem. They are on the side of the compressor and if you change these out you should be fine. Fairly easy to do as it should just be a plug connecting it. Hope this helps.

Kenmore refrigerator with bottom freezer. freezer works,refrig does not. Can you help me find the problem .Also, bar between the upper doors gets real hot.


I had this problem. The Evaporator fan in the freezer was working but no air would be circulated from the freezer into the refridgerator. To test this you open the door of the freezer, and depress the door button(s) of the upper refridgerator doors so that the light extinqueshes in the refridgerator. This will engage the evaporator fan in the freezer. You can check to see if air is venting from the freezer into the refridgerator by feeling the holes at the top most part of the multi-air flow channel in the refridgerator. If air is comming out when the freezer door is open, close the freezer door and feel if air has stopped. If you have kept the upper door buttons pushed in on the refridgerator and now have the freezer door closed, you should still hear the fan running, but may have not air flow with the freezer door closed. The cause of this is the air return channel from the refridgerator to the freezer is either frozen or clogged. My return-air channel was not frozen but clogged by a residue from something that spilled inside of the bottom of the refridgerator. The return-air channel has two vents in the rear-bottom of the refridgerator that exit into the freezer behind the evaporator (cooling coils). You can't see it even if the back interior panel is removed from the freezer compartment.

The bottom line here is that if air is prevented from moving from the refridgerator, back down to the freezer, then your refridgerator will not cool, but your freezer will work just fine. You will not need to replace the fan, unless the fan is not functioning. You may need to check the dampener, to ensure that your multi-air flow channel is open - (allowing air to come into the refridgerator). The multi-air flow channel is easy to remove once all of the shelves are removed from your refridgerator. Only 2 screws holding it in (securing the center rack top and bottom). The top screw is located behind a small plastic cover that can be removed.

That's what worked for me.

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 .
