New evaporator fan not running smoothly

GE Profile Frig. (replacing evaporator fan motor)
Think I figured out the problem but wanted to pass this issue along. Appears I put the fan on too snug to the evaporator fan motor so that it impeded the smooth rotation of axel. Once I backed the fan blade off the rubber gasket, fan runs perfectly.

Fun run as long as the compressor runs and you do not need to worry about it. the only thing you need to verify are the temperatures in the refrigerator and and freezer compartment: below 40-F, and below 0-F
if temp ok, do not wory about it.

Evaporator fan not working ge profile pss26mgpa ww


Try spinning the evaporator fan motor with your fingers. If the freezer door was left closd it may have rusted on its shaft and be stuck. We need to test the voltage going to fan if oiling its bearing and spinning byhand does not get it moving. Click Here for a service manual=> HERE and here=> GE Artica Test Sheet The fan motor or a relay on the motherboad may also be defective. You should get 12-13 volts DC at the fan motor, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a pfss6pkwss bottom profile ge refridgerator, i need a new part, the evaporator fan motor for the refridgerator, what is the part number? And do I need to get an evaporator thermostat to replace?


Hello,

That part number is WR60X10252 only the motor would be needed...the thermostat would not be required if just the motor is the bad part.

I have a GE Profile GSL251FRF BS. For the past week a high pitched squeal/sqeak is heard when the motor is running. What is that and what's the fix?


This is likely one of the fan motors. If it is coming from the lower back it would be the condenser fan and if it is coming from the frezzer compartment it is the evaporator fan. Both are inexpensive and easy to check and replace. Here are a couple links that should help

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.

My GE refrigerator is not maintaing cold temp in either frig or freezer


Probabilities:
1. Main board, most likely
2. And/or evap. fan motor less likely.
3. Defrost heater, less likely
4. Evaporator thermister, unlikely, but possible
Try defrosting it for 24 hours (by unplugging) and see if it helps.

Compressor & Evap. Fan both work for 12 hours then evap stops


I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.
