Question about GE Refrigerators
Compressor runs but condenser fan does not run,tried another fan and same thing
Could be the timer /defrost thermostart or heater most time is the
timer. When you changing timer, also replace the defrost thermostart.
Fans not running will cause the fresh food and the freezer sections not to work. If the condenser fan (the one under refrigerator) is not working, the compressor will cut off on the overload. If the evaporator fan is not running, there will be no airflow to the freezer or the refrigerator. First walk up to the refrigerator and listen to see if the fans (one in the freezer on one under the bottom) are running. If one is running and the other is not then get to the one that is not running and see if something is blocking it. If there is nothing blocking it then replace it. (Note that some refrigerators cut off the fan inside the freezer when you open the door so be sure that the door switch is depressed when performing this test). Refrigerator fan motors can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.com or simply search your part above.
It is recommended by pros to replace the main control board if the condenser fan motor failed. For your model, check the right part number for the main control board is AP4297272
