Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a G.E. TBX21CL. it's about 12 years old. it has been unplugged for at least a year. when i plug it in the compressor comes on but, the fan that blows air into the fresh food compartment does not. any help with this issue is appreciated.
thanks, Adam S.
The fan motor is probably burned out. Pull the back panel off that houses the fan assembly (carefully as not to damage the evaporator) and replace it. This only applies if the compressor is running and the freezer is woking normally and there isn't excessive ice buildup on the evaporator binding the fan blades. If that were the case, you'd have a defrost cycle problem to correct. Anyways, the fan should run when the compressor is running. The only time it stops is when the unit enters it's timed defrost cycle which occurs about every 6 - 8 hours and lasts 20-40 minutes.

Sometimes when a refrigerator is closed up for a while the moisture collects on the fan motor. I recommend that you not run the refrigerator like this until you can remove the rear panel and try to get the fan spinning again . Try turning it and allow the rust to loosen up. This will get the fan going providing the fan has not burned out due to not spinning. Sometimes other things can cause this, but for now try this and if it works please rate me. Let me know if I can help you get your refrigerator going, that's what I am here for. Thanks, Sea Breeze
