In the rear of freezer upper panel must be removed to get to it,possible cause that something has been pushed against panel making fan rub or ice formed around it.Addres the cause of problem because fan is needed for unit to cool refrigerator.

Not cooling enough on frigerator side but it still works on freezer side.


Hello Mjorgy,

I understand that you are having a problem with you refrigerator. The freezer is cooling fine, however the fridge side is not cooling enough. This is a common problem with the evaporator coil stops working. When you open the fridge or freezer you should hear a fan running or fell are coming out of the vents to the fridge.

I would love to help you further if you can please post a model number for the unit I will look up where the fan is located and let you know how to get to it in step by step instructions. You should be able to locate the model number in side the compartments on the wall close to the front. It is also located on the rear of the unit. Please post back to this thread so that I may assist you further.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My 5 year old GE GSH22JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator recently stopped cooling. I noticed a build up of frost on the freezer, so unplugged the fridge and let the ice melt away. After this,...


The problem you describe is that your defrost circuit has failed. The fridge should stop the compressor periodically and turn on the defrost heater to melt the frost buildup. Since the frost in building up on your coils, the fan can't blow the cold air into the fridge compartment. It defrost is controlled by a module that turns on the heater. Most of these failures have to do with the defrost heating element burning out. It can be replaced by someone who has some mechanical ability.

The coil and heater is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the panel in the back. You can obtain parts from appliance repair outlet or online like appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com.

Warm refrigerator compartment


There is a fan that blows the cold air down from the freezer to the fridge compartment. It is usually called a freezer fan. Most of them are behind the plastic lining in the freezer. I just noticed that your fridge is a side by side. I have never wored on a side by side but I imagine there is fan in them as well.

Simple! The replacement fan ran the wrong way forcing air circulation the wrong way. Fortunately it was possible to reverse the moter shaft.

Odor in GE side by side Fridge


Sounds like mold.  I'd try Lysol or one of the other products that claims to treat the odor cause in the air.  Spray a quantity into the empty fridge and freezer and turn it on.  Let the fans spread the stuff around. Try to find the internal vents which seem to pull air into the coils to spray into.

Fridge is whistling


Mine was making a moaning, whistling noise coming from just above the ice maker. It happened when the fan speed changed. I learned on this site that the motherboard was probably defective.
Rather than go thru GE, we found a new one online for 66 bucks. I replaced it in about ten minutes and it's all fixed. Poor materials on the original, but this site was very helpful.

GE GSL25JFR Freezer fan noise.


You are correct in believing the fan is going to be a problem. The evaporator fans inside the freezer compartment are common at going bad. I believe it is due to the extreme temperature and moisture conditions inside the application. The noise is the stator or bearing equivalent going out, the speed should remain constant. It may eventually make a screeching noise upon start up, or just lock up completely. The good news is replacements are relatively cheap and easy to find. If you do replace it yourself, make sure the fan blades are blowing in the right direction. If possible, remove the old one and bring it with you to the local appliance parts supplier and he should be able to help you get the right one, it will probably be a kit of some sort with multiple mounting brackets, screws, and maybe even a couple of blades. don't let this intimidate you. Most of this you will not use.
