Question about GE GSS22JF Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Evaporator fan works sometimes

I have almost the identical problem posted By we0674 on Nov 22, 2009
I have a GE side by side ref. model # GSS22JFPH WW that had a bad defrost heater. A few months ago I replaced the defrosting element (which was definitely bad) & thermostat. There is no more frost buildup but for some reason the evaporator fan sometimes stops coming on when needed. I can turn freezer setting to zero & back on or I can manually flick the fan and it then starts working again for a day or so. Is it most likely the evaporator fan itself or the main board?

By the sound of it , i would get a new evap fan,
as the power to the fan is switching on - thats why
you can flick it and get it running, the power is there.
it is a common problem with evap fans.

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

First this refrigerator has very low consumer rating. They are plagued with problems with very poor company backing. But without be able to diagnosis the problem in person I would say it's the mother board. And you may find that GE has a new updated board for your appliance. I would go to Amazon.com and search for your motherboard for your refrigerator and read the reviews. Some people leave some great idea. Plus it you bought this refrigerator brand new you can fight with GE to send you a new board.

Ref gasket is warm


This issue usually is caused by a broken fan (from the evaporator at the back of the appliance) or the evaporator needs cleaning.

You need to clean careful the evaporator (tubes) and be sure the fan is working.

GSS201EPH WW.... Freezer is making a very loud noise. It sounds like a fan hitting. Everything works


Check to see if the condenser fan in the rear of the fridge towards the bottom isn't hitting anything. If its inside the fridge it might be ice built up around the evaporator fan.

My GE refrigerator evaporation fan turns on and off intermittently. If I unplug the refrig for a while and plug in again, it will run normally for a couple of days. Then the problem will come back again....


This problem is related to a few possibilities. The fan motor is defective, or the control board relay has become defective. At this point I am comparing this model against the GE Profile Repair Manual to get you some test points to check before we change anything. The part number for the fan motor is WR60X10185
I will be back as soon as possible to help answer the question and give you more informed advice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Model # GSS20IEPA WW Fridge warm...freezer is fine


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,
