    Got it! I found the site and submitted a request to become a member. 

    We figured it was gonna be like that. 2-3 calls at a time then dump the rest at the end of the day. we are already handling 8-12 calls aday as it is I'm kind of worried where they will end up taking us. 

    I really dont have much of a problem as long as EVERYBODY gets the same treatment. here a big problem is the Sears techs get to go home early or on time and all the left over calls go to a&e techs.

    oh well you prollie didnt count on another bichin sears tech here...

    my e-mail is peyton68 at keep in touch.

Peyton you got it right on!!! i just sent an email to the expert section on fix-ya asking this very question.
i couldnt believe that this person said that he had the best response and i think your answer about the thermistors might be the right choice too.
if you look at these other guys profiles, they have car expertise and it looks like they just are jumping on the 6 bucks.
i have found several of these that had weak windings in the fan motor causing low air flow, but also have had a couple with open thermistor too.
you must actually do this for a living as not too many people no enough to give real answers.
by the way in an A&E tech with sears. but dont tell anyone!!!! LOL
take care too tom/ tzweeb

    LOL too funny.
    guess we should be on the s-tech web site from yahoo groups. i go on there alot and have been "called in" for my comments there!!
    just figured there is a better place for me to hang out then just bitching about sears!!!
    im in nebraska 8162. go figure we would meet here! if you go to yahoo groups you can read about their guys that are getting the new drip routing... hope you havent had that yet.

    try to just put this into a new tab and it will ask you if your sure you want to continue, then click yes and it will go to a disclaimer page for over 18 and then click yes. then your into the comment page from all the sears guys that will let you see what we all think about the new programs we get to deal with.
    from what i have read on this site we can expect to get 2 calls at a time and then just keep running until about 3 then they download all the rest of the calls that are in "the box".
    not sur but im going to try my email... tzweeb with you hoo if you can get it?? try my email if you cant get thru in the yahoo group page.
    im trying to hide it but i bet you can figure it out.

    hey peyton,havent talked to you for awhile but anyway...
    i heard today that we here in nebraska will be going to "drip" routing in the next 3-4 weeeks.
    i didnt want to try to send you an email since i am lazy and could figure out how with your email, but i thought it would be just as easy here.
    we are trying to get into the LBEW union and have had a few calls to get a union drive started, but its just a start...
    i cant wait to see if we can get back the benefits we have lost in the last few years.
    drip routing just sounds like another way to screw with us. what do you think?

the damper door assy located in the upper left corner just left of the water filter of the refrigerator compartment probably has a broken damper door shaft on one side and has jammed in this position,this is very common with G.E. SxS I have glued these shafts back together with good success,but you may want to just replace it

GSS25JERFWW ge refrig makes a whirring noise that is driving me crazy.. noise appears to be coming from the freezer sid. i was told by a neighbor it could be 'evaporator fan motor'

Yes its possible you could have a bad evap fan motor bearings. Its part# wr60x10185 and will cost you about 60 bucks. This particular fan motor is not the easiest to replace. You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer and possibly the auger motor. I cant tell by looking at the image but I do know that this particular fan motor depending on the model can be a real pain. It can be done but may take you some time. If you remove the back panel and look up you will see the fan motor. It will be held in 2 screws on the bracket and will come with a new thermistor.
Hope this helps _MJ_

You say " all thermistors check fine " , how did you check them ? Did you check for the 5-8 DC volts at the main control board , for the thermistors ? Did you do the diagnostic check for the thermistors from the control panel ? I'm sure you know there are 5 thermistors , since the refrig has the dual evap . Possibly the # 5 is bad , since it is the freezer temp " controller " , yet if it tells the board it's not cold enough , it still sends refrigerant to the refrig evap . Since the refrig evap has 2 fan motors , can't remember if there is a damper there also . Maybe when the # 3 thermistor is satisfied , it only cuts the fans off , even though refrigerant is still going thru the refrig evap .

Ge refrig. defrost prob.

Temp sensor at the top of the evaporator is the most likely fault but may be compounded by evap motor issues

Freezer is very cold and refrig is not

make sure the return air is open, that is a vent on the side wall of the refrigerator above the crispers on the center mullion. and check to see if the evaporator fan motor is running.

My firdge is operating, but not cool nor freezing

Did he check it out and make sure its bad... these ge models are tricky... sometimes they take out the mother board with a bad evap fan motor.. seems like it should still be his problem to help fix, if his repair didnt solve the problem
