Question about GE Cafe CFCP1NIXSS Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
The refrigerator and freezer are not cold. The condenser and evaporator fans are running. Variable compressor drive does have 120 volts at the connector. Unsure if the variable compressor drive is receiving a run signal from main control board. Can I short the communication signal at the invertor with the main control board disconnected and expect the compressor to run?

If you remove the back panel on the inside of the cabinet then you would be able to check the evaporator coil (cold bit) and see if it is frozen up. If it is then defrost the system and see if you have any improvement. All the things you have pointed out over the compressor is normal, they do run incredibly hot. If you have got the freezer on a very cold setting I would suggest bringing both setpoints to a mid range setting. Check the temp in the fridge by measuring liquid temp as air temp is prone to fluctuate more. If you still have a concern I would suggest contacting a fridge guy to assist you. Hope this is of some if not limited help.

SOURCE: Evaporator fan not working
Most G.E. the fan will not work if limit control is not working, staying in open position.This also means the defrost heater will not work. If you had an amp probe it would simplify your diagnoses. you could put it into defrost,and if the amps showed heater was not coming on it would prove my theory. The limit control is a small button like switch about 1 inch in diameter cliped to the cooling
coils in back of freezer. Hope this helps.

have you check the thermostat as follows ?
2. circuit from thermo switch (stat) to relay and the function of the relay, the stat should close and coild on relay should be powered, thus closing contacts to pull in evap fan.
assume you are carefull enough not to electrocute yourself in the process, short out relay contacts to see if fan runs. if it does and stat actually is okay. replace relay on board it may be faulty or may have anboard maufacturing fault such as dry solder joint etc.
alternatively if you have a good friend good al electrical work have him relace relay for you.
as an emergency fix , connect evap fan to supply, thus by passing control bard al togheter, ths should give you you 10 degress straight away and keep you rubnning till you solve board level problem.

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.
