Drain channel freezes


I had that ice build-up problem on a side-by-side GE. In the end, it turned out to be the defrost timer. After 20 years of use, it wasn't keeping the defrost cycle ON long enough to let all the water drain out. After replacing the timer, problem disappeared.

Hello I have a GE Profile with Brita refrigerator bottom freezer and it suddenly stopped cooling in the refrigerator portion. The freezer works but very weakly. Ive unplugged it, let it go for one hour,...


The drain is frozen up. The fan what provides the cooling air for the fridge is stuck in the ice. Remove the vegie crisper and pop the bottom under the crisper s out. Also remove the Styrofoam plate. You will see the problem right in front of you. Use a hairdryer to get rid of the ice build up. Good luck

Freezing and ice build up stopping fan.


hi,
you could buy a spare cover and experiment with it (the one you constantly have to take off) cut it with a hacksaw blade or bend it slightly with a heat gun so the air from the fan moves in a different direction slightly. I sure wouldnt want to be working in GE's design department and have to be responsible for a huge design flaw like this. Usually GE's are trouble free.

Temp is rising and fridge is making noise


the problem lies with your evaporator fan motor, ice is forming underneath the fan blade, and as one customer told me, it sounds like a helicopter. when this fan stops altogether, no air flow to fresh food section is a result.
the cause could be the fan motor itself is bad, or if there is ice underneath the fan blade, the defrost drain is clogged with ice. after clearing the drain, i would highly suggest putting a defrost drain heater, to prevent ice build up in drain,, from obstructing fan blade.

There is a horrible humming sound coming from the freezer. It seems to be the fan that is behind the piece of plastic in the middle of the back wall of freezer. The sticker in the freezer says MODELS...


Hard to diagnose without being there and taking it apart. Based on my experiences, I suspect the defrost drain could be restricted. The defrost water freezes in place around the fans shrould and the fan blade hits the ice buildup. If the ice builds up enough the fan blade will be stopped and possible damage the fan motor. Access fan area to inspect and defrost (hot water, hair dryer or let it stand overnight off. DC evaporator fan motor WR60X10228 est $85

Build up of ice on bottom of freez


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)

GE Profile TCC18 Refridgerator freezes Up regularly.


I had the same problem. I changed the defrost thermostat and that has solved the problem. Just to make sure the problem is not recurring I drilled a small hole in the back of the plastic drain(behind the fridge) so that I can put a long screw driver inside to determine if there is any ice build up. None so far after 3 weeks.

Need to replace evaporator fan GE profile performance TNX model


Unfortunately, the evaporator fan has probably frozen in water trapped in the defrost drain. This seems to be a common problem with these GE bottom freezer models. You can shut it off for 12-14 hours and leave the doors open and it will thaw and drain into the freezer compartment. But you probably have food that you would need to put into another refridgerator to do this. Another option is to take out the bottom liner of the refridgerator to do this - I had a service man do it the first time it happened - he then used hot water and a hair drier to get rid of the ice that was stopping the fan. Unfortunately, it seems once this problem starts happening, it will continue to reoccur and I have not found a long term solution yet
