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 them...so 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.

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.

My Maytag Plus refrigerator does not work, lack of frost, cold. The freezer side is working fine.


Need to see if the damper is open inside the fridge.  This the vent in to top left hand corner.  If it is not open then the damper needs to be replaced.  If it is open then one of the return vents (lower part of fridge) is blocked/plugged.  Let me know what you find.

Side by side light stays on in the fridge & it is not cold @ all. Freezer is working properly

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

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).

The refrigerator is not cooling either the freezer or the fridge I dont know what to do it stays hot.


. 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. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the overload protector does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

There are a couple of things that can cause this. Thermistors, mainboard, fan and damper.
Start with the cheapest.
1. Check Thermistors - Pull J1 and check connector pins 1,2,3 and 4 to pin 5. They should beapproximately 15Kohms. In your case, the freezer thermistors (pin 3 and4 ) should be higher than the fresh food (pins 1 and 2).
2. Fan and Damper - Fresh food fan should be on and damper from freezer to fresh food should be open. If not, check that fans spin by hand and damper doesn't look damaged
3. At this point it is most likely the motherboard.
