Model# gsh22kgmcbb. everything thawing out.coil was covered in dust, cleaned as best i could. fan motor running kind of slow,i think.


Hi,

Are you talking about the Condenser Fan at the back of the fridge next to Motor/Compressor.

If that is running slow it means the fan motor bearings and lubricant inside the fan motor has turned into a sludge which is a common problem. Need to replace the condenser fan motor. You can put a normal household fan behind the fridge to cool the compressor in the meantime.

My GE fridge (gss25jemaww) stopped cooling. The light still goes on and off like normal, and the motor works, but the fridge and freezer do not cool anymore. Everything inside thawed.


This tell me the compressor is not running. I would like you to pull the fridge away from wall unplug and remove the cover over the compressor. Feel top of compressor and if too hot to hold hand there keep unplugged and let me know. There are some test I would like you or someone skilled with a test meter to do to eliminate the compressor start components and motherboard. Sea Breeze

Not cooling


Cooling fan, behind internal plasic panel is frozen up, happens with me regularly, self defrost function not working properly, i'm just fixing mine as I write. I have found that bottom drain hole was all full of ice also. Have cleared with anti-freeze/hot water till runs through. Take out all shelves, remove back panel, there are screws behind chrome bezel and also inde-odoriser recesses (those two square plastic covers). Unscrew plastic water chiller, be careful not to damage pipes. Remove the back platic moulding, unclipping wire connectors and cooling fan is fastened to back, it will be frozen up with ice! I use hair dryer/ de-icer to thaw, dry off as much as possible. Beware, moulding is mainly polystyrene, i.e fragile. I suspect that I keep getting problems because I didn't clear out the bottom drain hole, so it did not defrost. Tell tale sign is noisy fan (hitting ice) which eventually freezes up and stops blowing cold air which causes fridge to stop cooling, compressor still works though!

Lights on, sounds like running, everything thawed


Check your compressor, the relay and the computer board. These are all located at the back of the fridge if all check out ok, then check your thermostat

Fridge and freezer not cold


It happenedn to my performa fridge just yesterday. It was bought in 2005. Now there is humming and clicking sound from the lower back side once in a while and the fridge is not cold. the compressor is hot/warm and it seems to be where the noise is coming from.

Hot point side by side


Could be stuck in "defrost" mode. Happens a lot. See if you can hear if the compressor is running or the compressor cooling fan is running (in back underneath the unit). Worse case is the refrigerant leaked out and you have a sealed system problem.
