Try spinning the evaporator fan motor with your fingers. If the freezer door was left closd it may have rusted on its shaft and be stuck. We need to test the voltage going to fan if oiling its bearing and spinning byhand does not get it moving. Click Here for a service manual=> HERE and here=> GE Artica Test Sheet The fan motor or a relay on the motherboad may also be defective. You should get 12-13 volts DC at the fan motor, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.

P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

SOURCE: Need to replace evaporator fan GE profile performance TNX model

Unfortunately, the evaporator fan has probably frozen in water trapped in the defrost drain. This seems to be a common problem with these GE bottom freezer models. You can shut it off for 12-14 hours and leave the doors open and it will thaw and drain into the freezer compartment. But you probably have food that you would need to put into another refridgerator to do this. Another option is to take out the bottom liner of the refridgerator to do this - I had a service man do it the first time it happened - he then used hot water and a hair drier to get rid of the ice that was stopping the fan. Unfortunately, it seems once this problem starts happening, it will continue to reoccur and I have not found a long term solution yet

You can replace the doors but you will think you bought a new frig when you see what they cost. Most come as an assembly and are very expensive.

SOURCE: GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR MOTHER BOARD PROBLEMS

Go into the diagnostic mode on your touch display .
1) . Press any button on the display 1 time except the temp adjust buttons.
2) Press the temp up and down on both the freezer AND refrig (all 4 at the same time)
3) when 0's show , release the buttons and press any button except for the temp adjust buttons .
4) NOW , fress the temp adjust buttons until the freezer side displays 0 and the refrig side displays 7 . 0 and 7 is for the thermistors test .
5) After 0 and 7 display , press any button again except temp adjust , and this will start the thermistor check .
6) You will have 7 thermistor tests , indicated on the refrig display , starting at 1 , then 2 then .......
7) The feezer display will tell for the corresponding thermistor , indicated by the refrig display , if the thermistor p = pass , s = short , b = bad (replace board)

After determining if or which thermistor is bad , then adjust the display to 1 on freezer display and 6 on the refrig display . This ends the testing procedure and resets the refrig back to normal .

SOURCE: no water through door - PSS25MGMA WW

if it still makes ice then that eliminates a lot of things .. if thats the case and you can hear the solonoid operate (click) when you try to get water then you might have a clogged or smashed hose from the solonoid up to the dispenser ... if you cant hear the solonoid operate then check the microswitch that is actuated by the dispenser lever .. also check its wires ... they sometimes break right as they come out of the lower hinge .. .. if the ice maker also doesnt work then check the saddle valve where the hose connects to the main water line ..

Hello Jerry Barton,

I would say... jump on it

So long as your "REPAIR" person is crediting your
"REPAIR" COSTS back to you...
>> ((which I doubt))

They are essentially they are same machine...
On a trouble you are describing ... I would
suspect an ICE BLOCKAGE
or malfunctioning evaporator FAN
(see GROMMET video (identical))

Your PSS25MGNA shows EVAP fan grommet
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/ge-evaporator-fan-motor-wr02x12008-ap3795810.html

and the proposed GSS25WGMD.. ALSO resolves to
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/ge-evaporator-fan-motor-wr02x12008-ap3795810.html

If watch the VIDEO & you go inside... you will never look at refrigerators the same... and a pizza box or stuck ice cube could have started all your troubles ((my opinion))
(room air (even only a little) can cause HUGE ice build up).

But then again... life is short...
and it is ONLY another $100 to end this FIASCO...

I am just curious ... HOW MUCH money has
this cost you already...??

Should we repair 14 yr old ge profile refrigerator?


depends on what's wrong. if it's not cooling, clean the condenser coils with a vacuum, check the evaporator and condensor fans (easy replacement if necessary. if the compressor is shot or there is a refrigerant leak, say your good-byes.

GE fridge is warm and broken; the freezer is cold though.


Air circulation problem. Evaporator fan in freezer moves some air to refrig. Either fan is not working or air passages are blocked with ice. If ice found, then a defrost component failure has occurred. Fix what you find.

Compressor & Evap. Fan both work for 12 hours then evap stops


I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.
