The fan should be a standard 12v DC computer style fan , test that you are getting voltage to the fan connector . You should also be able to get the fan to run by connecting it to a suitable supply . Once you have eliminated the possibility of fan failure then it gets more involved.

often there is a cover in the rear of the freezer with some screws remove these and put low temp grease on the fan. The Problem Is %100 The Fan So If You Look Up Your Fridge On Google It Will Tell You Where The Fan Is.

SOURCE: Refrigerator does not get cold - GE side by side

In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.

It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.

Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.

The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

SOURCE: refrigerator does seem like its working right

Your refrigerator compressor is either pumping or it is not. Set the refrigerator to low temperature, pull it out and listen for a while to see it the compressor is coming on. If it is coming on then there may be a freon leak or the internal coils may be iced up. If it is not coming on, then either there is no power to the coompressor, or the compressor itself is defective. Use a voltmeter at the compressor to check for voltage. There is also an add on device to start stuck compressors from your local HIVAC jobber store.

Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I am wondering if a bad despenser contrl board could cause my ge side by side refrigirator frezzer modle # GSL25JFXB LB COULD CAUSE TO FREZZ BUT NOT COOL THE FRIG


No ... dispensor control has nothing to do with what you are describing...

TOTAL DEFROST circuit failure... MOST PROBABLE.

Note: appliancepartspros has 365 day return/guarantee...
You can order all your parts and return in-used or BROKEN parts...

Pull your defrost pan and check for ANY moisture...
(should get wet ABOUT twice each day...

(put typing paper in pan... you will see if it GOT WET).

No water = defrost failure...
- timer/control (good possibility)
- heater element (rare)
- defrost thermostat (most likely)

Check your model number and compare parts numbers. Ideal part number source is from you 'ORIGINAL OWNER'S DOCUMENTS".

SEARS (searspartsdirect.com) has a pretty decent technical library.. but their parts usually TOP the market...

You get the very same parts EVERYWHERE... so this is an excellent time to shop around (see below)...

~~

Ice/frost has the flow of cool air blocked...

It will continue to get thicker until only the very bottom of your FREEZER will continue to work (very poorly).

Not a difficult fix... just make sure to take USEABLE PICTIRES before taking things apart...
(look at them... like you need them for re-assembly).


Good luck, hope this helps...

Ice maker not working AND food in fridge is freezing


Seems that you have a problem with your controls. Check the timer sequencer and thermostat.

GE Profile Refridgerator side warm, freezer ok?


Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.

Side by side GE turbo-cool Gss25XSRBSS, the freezer seems to be fine, the fridge is not cooling. Fans seem to be running smoothly, no weird noises. Turbo cool turns on. It hasn't been running for


if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112
this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.

Most ge have a Multispeed fan control on board. But if you had to start the fan with your hand, I would guess it would be a fan issue

Problem with GE Refrigerator (GTS18SHSVRSS) -- Doesn't run. Power seems to be getting in (inside lights turn on and we can hear a faint humming sound), but the fan/condenser doesn't seem to be...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.
