Need wiring diagram for GE PSS26MSRC_SS

Main control board tests good. Replaced condenser fan and am about to replace evap fan. Bought new control board and I get the same results. When J2 connector is plugged in I lose the display for freezer and fridge and I've not been able to get the unit into diagnostic mode with either board. Can't find a wiring diagram anywhere. Sears Part's direct couldn't find either. I was able to download the troubleshooting manual but there's no diagram in the manual. Doesn't make sense but true. Can someone help me? Thanks!

SOURCE: Slow compressor fan

You need to remove the fan and test it somewhere different. The compressor is in need of the condenser fan. Everything will overheat without that fan working. You should also test the power at that pin plug. Let me know what you find. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!

Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

SOURCE: Freezer is cold, fridge is warm; replaced main board already

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Ge profile bottom freezer model # PGSS5NFXA SS. Got up this morning and freezer thawing. pulleD back panel cleaned the condenser fins with compressed air. runs fun but can't get the temp to fall past

Hi and thanks for using fixya!

This could be any one of 3 problems on this french door GE refrigerator. So lets trouble shoot.

First let me say the most common problem (95% of the time) on this model refrigerator and other GE models like this one is caused by the main control board pt # WR55X10956. I'll leave a link below where you can purchase parts.

1st, (unplug unit) , pull the freezer door out and look on the back wall. (all cold air in fridge comes from the freezer behind the back wall.) Is there a snowy frosty ice build up on the back wall? If so, you have a defrost problem. In this case, remove the freezer drawers, take all food out and remove the back wall (usually 1/4 inch nut driver needed). Also look where the evaporator fan is (vents in middle-top) and you'll see a picture of flat-head screw driver. You'll need to insert screwdriver where it tells you to and pry off vent. Once you have back wall off you'll need to defrost any ice you see. After that you will notice a glass heating element at bottom with one wire connected on both sides. unplug those wires and test element for continuity. Around 0 is good. If you don't have continuity then the heating element is bad. pt# WR51X10094 Link to parts site below. Next, test the thermostat, round-cylinder thing, width of a quarter attached to the evaporator coils (usually at top right and has two wires connected to it, one yellow, one orange). You test this just like the heating element. No continuity means it's bad. pt# WR50X10069. If both test good (and most of the time they do) then you'll need to replace the control board listed above.

Here is link where you can purchase parts listed above. They have good shipping and good return policy.

Looking for a wiring schematic for a ge dide by side gsl25jfphbs no power ro evap fan motor

The problem you are having is most likely a defective=> WR55X10473 Main Control Board. The defective WR55X10473 Main Control Board may have been caused by a defective=> WR60X10185 Evaporator Fan Motor. If your motor has a white thermistor in the connector you need the related fan motor WR60X10074. If it has a connector for a light you will need a=> WR23X10467 Fan Motor Reason I am telling you this is because if the fan is defective it can again damage the Main Control Board.

GE side by side refrigerator not cooling at all even after replacing the main board

In many cases changing the board alone will not solve the problem if the start relay, overload and the run capacitor have not been replaced, WR09X10107 Relay and Overload Kit and WR62X79 Run Capacitor You can locate a service manual HERE and test points and wiring diagram HERE I am here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

My GE GSL 25JFPABS Refrigerator failed yesterday. No Comressor no evap or condensor fan

Fan motor starts with the compressor. Sounds like you need a main board and condenser fan motor. Call GE. It might be covered under warranty. A known issue with certain models. You will also need serial # if you call.

GE PFS22MIBB Condenser fan still not working.

The picture I have taken is from what I call the wire side. From that side look into the connector very close. You will see a lock on the wire. Unlock that wire and pull it out. Put a small piece of tape on the wire end so it does not touch anything and plug the unit in. This is to a sensor not a load carrying part of the circuit so it will be fine to do the test. There are rare cases when a serial is not on the list. Plug the unit in and see if the fan comes on. If it does not I would have to say yes you did get a bad board.

You will need to unplug the fan and test the voltage coming from the board. You should have 12 to 13 volts DC. Unless you place a fan on condenser that blows air to keep it cool until we locate the problem the compressor can be damaged from over heating. Click here=> GE ARTICA PROFILE TECHNICAL INFORMATION On the first diagram the tech sheet and look for J2 that has both sets of wires for evaporator and condenser fan motors. With new board and new fan you must have a bad connection in the wiring harness. Click on wiring diagram and it will open in a new tab as a Service Manual. Look it over and ask me questions as communication will be very important for you to be able to understand all of this. I will be here when ready so please let me know. Please rate my solution after I have helped you resolve the problem and communicate with me. I am offering my help to you free.

The fan is controlled thru the main control board located on the back of your refrigerator. Pull unit away from the wall and you will see a metal plate. The board is located there and you will need to replace the board. This is a common problem with the GE's. The board is pricey but better than a new refrigerator. If an appliance company told you the fan was bad you should try and get them to refund the fan. wr 55x10942 is the number you need.

Evaporator fan not working

have you check the thermostat as follows ?
1. operation.
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.

in the process of changing
