Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

GE French Door Control Panel LEDs Off if Fan is on.

GE Refrig PFS22MISBWW Serial TH052892 The Green "LED" display panel that shows the ref and Freezer temperatures or set points goes blank whenever the fan motor in the bottom freezer comes on.  The display works when the fan is off.  It works during start-up when the compressor is on, but only until the fan starts.  The fan doesn't seem to kick into high speed like it used to, and the fridge seems to be running more.  Didn't find any obvious ice buildup.  Temps seem to be OK.

Tried rebooting by unplugging it for a while, but no change. I saw a note on the web about a problem they had with the DC fan motor and circuit board that GE was fixing post warranty.  Any help would be appreciated.  It's less than 2 years old.  Thanks,

    I have the exact same problem. 2 year old unit.

    Apparently, the computer motherboard, which is accessed from the outside back panel of the fridge, was, is designed poorly and fails often. This whole refrigerator is actually a nightmare, and I suggest that anyone who owns one either buy a long term warranty, or sell it before it gets very old. Also, be sure to put a surge protector on it.

    For example, all the fan motors work on DC Voltages controlled by the computer. What used to be a $15 generic 115VAC fan motor for the freezer compartment and the coils underneath, can now cost up to $180 each - and if the fan shorts out, it can take the computer with it. On my unit, now the cheap(ly made) plastic bracket between the two bottom drawers has broken - and there's no kids here abusing it. That part will cost about $25 and will break again some day.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

GE PFS22MISBWW is a piece of junk


One doesnt like to hear it but possibly cut your losses and look for a less complicated fridge with minimum electronics.

GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.


The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

Temperature 94 in refrig. normal in freezer


Check to see if refrigerator door is lower than freezer door. If so remove toe panel, (bottom front). Under refrigerator door hinge at bottom right is adjuster for door. Adjust upward so door is even. On some models when door is too low it causes light to stay on some times, raising ref. temps.
