SOURCE: Refrigerator and freezer stopped making cold over night, its a GE


Try to check for Warranty protection, and if the time coverage has not yet elapsed. If it has not, try to take to service technician, if it has, then the problem is just the Coolant, a chemical liquid that when its volume is expanded, its temperature drastically drops, its called freon. Try see if you can replace the coolant. :)

SOURCE: My compressor cooling fan quit- the compressor

The problem is most likely the condensor fan motor is starting to fail. This is easy to check, First remove the back cover and when the compressor is running you should have voltage going to the fan motor if you do the fan motor needs replacing if not then the main board would be at fault here is a link that should help

SOURCE: GE Profile fridge: freezer is

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand based on your post you have a GE profile PFS22MIS fridge not cooling in the fridge (upper cabinet) section, correct ?.

It is possible the problem is related to the condensor fan, but not likely. The difference with these fridges and many others (especially the older fridges) is the condensor fan does not run all the time. Instead the control board at the back (pcb) tells it when to run and at what rpm to run as well, it is a variable speed fan motor...and may in fact not run at all at periods.

The one thing I'd suggest you inspect is the back wall of the freezer. You mentioned the evaporator fan motor is operating, correct ? Is there any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, or if not visible have you removed the back wall of the freezer ?

I will need to watch for your reply before going forward. I hope you can appreciate there are so many variables since the fridge has many factors controlling air flow which in turn determine what the possible problem and solution will be.

Sounds to me it is a damper or blocked evaporator initially at least. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

The replacement board could be defective but also the board could have been replaced when, in fact, the problem was caused by something else.

My ge profile refrigerator evaporator fan motor stops while the compressor is running

this is normal as if one compartment is cold enough but not the other compartment the sealed system has a valve in the refrigerant circulation system to channel the refrigerant flow to the compartment that is calling for cooling so that fan will cease operation in the compartment thats cool enough

GE side by side fridge HSS25IFMDWW burnt pin on relay on main board and compressor not running. Tested compressor and it runs okay. What would cause the burnt pin?

Most times the motherboard is the problem that causes the solder to melt from a defective relay. You will need to inspect the compressor start relay and capacitor to insure that they did not cause the relay on the board to overheat. Also check that you have 12 volts dc going to the evaporator and condenser fans while running because if for some reason the fans are defective and you change the motherboard while one of the fan motors are defective your new motherboard again can be damaged.

GE profile freezer and fridge not cooling

this unit has a control board on it ...the first few things you need to check if the unit is still plugged in... do you have any frostg build up on back wall inside freezer... if you do it tells me compressor is still running and most likely you have a defrost issue either the heater,defrost thermost or the defrost board is bad.... if no frost build up you need to gain access to the rear of unit is the compressor coming on should be able to here it or put your hand on it and it will be hot...
if not running you could have a bad thermostat or the actually main control board has failed.. if it is running check all your fans inside freezer and down by compressor are they working... hope this helps repost with more info

GE profile Refrigerator Model # PFS2251SBSS

You must be referring to the compressor. It's possible it could be your main control board on the back of the unit. Typically its these main boards that go out, as they control everything on your GE Refrig, pretty much. If its not the board, it could be your Relay on the compressor, or the compressor its self, however, in my experience, GE's compressors are pretty decent.

G.E. profile mod. # PSS26SGRB SS not cooling

Check to see if the compressor is running. If it is not running take note if the fan beside it is running. If it is the main board is most likely bad. Remove the main board and check for burnt solder joints. If you are familiar with soldering you can fix any bad solder joints and your refrigerator may go back to work. This page will help
