Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a GE fridge model PDS22SBRALSS serial AG041288 new in 2004. The fridge part is too warm. I have learned the damper door opens and cools the fridge. I have replaced the main board twice now. I have checked the sensors against the resistance temperature chart and the ohms match. I replaced the sensors anyways. I have taken the damper door apart and have seen it close once when the plug was pulled and seen it open when the plug was pulled.( of course I pushed the door half way everytime to get it to start)The ohms on the damper are 374 each side. I heard from a Direct Energy Serviceman he thinks the evaporator fan motor is at fault. The motor draws too much power and damaged the main board. I left the door open part way and unplugged the wiring harness and the fridge got cold. Too cold so we put tape over some holes to adjust the temperature now. the Freezer is always cold. everything is frozen. I don't know how the fan motor would be at fault. Please help me I don't know what next. Main board, fan motor, sensors, damper? The damper is priced at $390.00 and don't want to spend more then needed.

I would say FAN motor as well because when they wear out they take WAY TO MUCH VOLTAGE. and heats up the board he is talking about, shoot what does that motor cost? I priced it at like 445 bucks and some change for shipping but that is just a estimate. I would go for the fan motor myself as the cause.

Thanks and please do press the accept button for my efforts.

Side by side GE turbo-cool Gss25XSRBSS, the freezer seems to be fine, the fridge is not cooling. Fans seem to be running smoothly, no weird noises. Turbo cool turns on. It hasn't been running for


if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112
this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.

Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again

I have a ge profile psc23nhpa refriderator that the fridge side of the unit temperature shoot up to 135 over night. But the freezer side was still very cool. What could cause this?


Are you sure it is 135? If the freezer is cold but the fridge is warm, most likely is the damper door problem. (Basically, it's a door controlled by the main board, get cold air from freezer and close when the fridge is cold enough)

I have a GE GSS25LGMF side x side refrigerator. The compressor never shuts off and everything in the fridge section is freezing. Is this a thermostat problem?


it could be the damper part number WR49X10091,if the damper door isn't closing correctly cold air will just keep coming into the fridge side from the freezer,usually the damper door opens to let the cold air in when the fridge starts warming up and when it gets cold enough the door will close but your damper is stuck open

Freezer is working but refrigerator is not


My Maytag (side by side) had a similar problem, turns out to be the damper door. The freezer does the cooling, there's a damper door between the fridge and freezer that opens and closes to control fridge temp. Find the damper door and prop it open. If the fridge temp drops overnight, you'll need a new damper ***'y.
