What is the evaporator


The evaporator is the part of the fridge that gets cold, more correctly it removes heat. It is usually located in the freezer and a fan motor, evaporator fan, move air thru the evaporator to cool both the fridge and the freezer. Some units have two evaporators, one for the fridge and one for the freezer.

After power outage the fridge was displaying codes SY and EF I have Frigidaire model number FGHS2365KF1. Any thoughts?????


Hi.

SY: Defective evaporator system. Check evaporator fan, thermostat and heater.

EF: Evaporator Fan defective. Test and eventually replace the evaporator fan.

The problem is likely the evaporator fan. Before replacing the fan test the other parts comprised in the evaporator system.

Here a tip explaining how to test such parts with a similar fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is more or less the same with your model.

Here parts and diagrams for your model.

Generally you can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:
Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Why is our fridge frozen all the time?


Hi!!

The evaporator fan (little fan in freezer), is the one that blows cool air to the fridge. If your evaporator is freezing up, it could be due to the thermostat set too high, and the fridge control set too low. Set freezer temp. one number lower, wait 24 hrs and check, if evaporator still freezes, lower it one more setting. If temp in fridge is OK. leave it alone, or adjust accordingly.

Let me know how it worked out.

Good Luck!!

Evaporator Fan Motor noise is excessive for this refrigerator. GE Profile CustomStyle Model PTI22SFMARBS Serial# SF900146V


Despite my urge to vent about GE refrigerators, I'll keep this short.

If you have a constant squealing noise from the evaporator fan in the freezer, there's a good chance the fan just has failing bearings, and replacing the evaporator fan might solve the problem.

But if the noise is intermittent; quiet sometimes but sometimes buzzing loudly, then my bet is there's nothing wrong with your evaporator fan. It's a problem with the design of GE fridges: They don't defrost completely. So ice builds up on the back freezer wall, etc., and on and around the evaporator fan. That's not a problem when the fan is in "low speed mode". But open the door, get the fridge warm, and the fan kicks into "high speed mode". That's when the noise will start, as the fan blades and assembly warps under speed to hit ice and start vibrating.

Acid test is this: While the noise is occurring, turn the fridge temp (not freezer) control up as high as you can without turning off the fridge. That will make the fan shift into low speed. If the noise stops, you got ice on the fan, my friend.

In that case, unplug the fridge, and get a hair dryer and blow warm air into and onto the evaporator fan area. Maybe gently whack the fan area with your hand a bit, to knock the ice off. Once you get all the ice off, turn it back on. If it runs on high, without any noise, the problem is fixed ... until the next set of high humidity days. I plan to post a video about this, once I get it edited to remove the expletives. ;-)

GE will sell you a "moisture kit" for $340, which may fix the problem, but only if your fridge is out of warranty.

If your fridge is still under warranty, GE will tell you there's nothing wrong and that maybe you just need ear plugs.

Fridge not cooling


Check and see if your evaporator fan motor is working in the freezer. Also, if your defrost system is not working and your evaporator coil is frosted up, you will not get any cold air to the refrigerator section. You should see alot of frost on the back wall of the freezer where the evaporator coil is located. If your evaporator fan motor is working and there is no frost build up on the coil, the air diffuser to the refrigerator section may be the problem. Put your hand in front of it when the evaporator fan motor is running and feel if any air is coming thru. There are a number of conditions that can cause your problem. This should get you started!

Fridge doesn't get cold enough


 If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.

If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.

Cold on bottom, Hot on Top - 596.75303


You are right on the money. I would definitely buy the fan kit because the problem will get worse. I had to replace the evaporator fan on my parents fridge and it was only two years old. You can also download the breakdown diagrams and schematics from http://www3.sears.com
