Question about GE PDS22SIS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Response No the fan stays runing... and yse I can see through and there is nothing in the way. I have taken the damper apart and the is only the one falp at the bottom of the chanel that runs up the center of the fridge. Is this in anyway related to the mother borad or the main board on the back of the fridge? This board was replaaced and this air flow problem was there before and is still there now. Is there anyway to access the vents going back in to the freezer? They seem to be part of the cabinet itself and not able to access. But the coils in the freezer were frozen and I had to defrost I am 99 percent there is nothing blocking them but I never did find where they came out into the freezer.

I don't have an electronic control module on the model I own. You should try running something down the duct that blows air out and also the vent in the bottom of the refrigerator to make sure they are clear. If that duct damper is open and the fan is on, cold air should be coming out.

Are you sure the evaporator coils have not re-frozen? If they frosted over once and the problem was not addressed, it will only be a matter of weeks before they frost over again. Between my own and other refrigerators I have looked at, the warm refrigerator/cold freezer symptom is always because of frosted evaporator coils. You may need to troubleshoot the defrost system.

How do I get the fan off the fan blades in a 1994 dodge spirit?

If the OEM version is designed to be taken apart, there is a clip that holds the fan blade onto the motor shaft.
Its easier to buy the fan blade and motor together.

It sounds like the damper assembly might have failed or be stuck open. The damper is mounted in the left side upper rear corner of the refrigerator section. The damper controls the amount of cold air that comes into the refrigerator section from the freezer.

If you want to repair the refrigerator yourself you should disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the 2 screws holding the damper cover to the center wall. Sometimes you can spray the damper with WD40 and free it up.

Frig won't cool RM2652

You'll need to get in touch with the store you bought it from but Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

I have 80 bath exhaust fans in the hotel that I maintain. There is a loud dripping noise coming from a few of them but no sign of water at the top housing (from attic). I contacted a "professional" and...

I would expect that each fan has it's own damper right there at the fan. Otherwise, one room's fan would blow another with which it shares ductwork. I have stayed in hotel rooms where cigarette smoke came into my room through my exhaust fan unless I ran my fan. So, why would some of the dampers tend to flap? You'll have to take a look. Maybe they have counterweights or springs to hold them closed. Maybe they are missing or adjustable. Maybe the problem only exists when the guest has their windows open - which could cause the dampers to flap in the changing breezes.
