Inside strip of fridge is very hot. cleaned out behind fridge and the coils, etc. fan is barely moving/not moving. any suggestions???


Replace the fan. The strip has a freon line running behind it, and when it is hot, this tells us that you have a dirty condensor, bad condensor fan motor, bad evaporator fan motor, defrost problem, or a freon system problem. When you say your fan is barely moving, I am assuming this is your condensor fan motor, which sucks air through the hot freon lines in the condensor coils, and cools the freon off. If it is barely moving, it can't cool the freon. In some brands a slow moving condensor fan can be caused by a bad main control board. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Vacuum condensor light flashing and the refrigerator won't get colder than 51 degrees.


The light is indication a problem with the condenser coils being covered with dust/dirt and cannot dissipate the heat energy absorbed by the system in the evaporator coils (freezer). Or the condenser fan is not running. Clean the condensor and/or check the fan.

Ge tpx21pr side by side refig/freezer Freezer is not cold enough


If your unit is NOT a static condensor, (the type with cooling fins and tubes on the outside of the back of the unit) If the door seals are okay and sealing properly, you might need to service the forced air condensor components located at the rear lower area, usually behind a fiber board cover. Remove the cover and look for dust on the condensor fins and fan blades. If clogged, carefully brush, vacuum, or blow the dust out, opposite the direction of the fans natural air flow direction. (You don't want to lodge the debris further into the condensor fins.)..Be sure to unplug the unit first.

Condensor won't stay on


Compressor is overheating. You need to make sure your indoor and outdoor coils are clean. Sometimes it just needs a vacuum job. If you hose the outside coils, be sure to do it from the inside out. Hosing from the outside will just pack the dirt in farther.

No video from the board


Check the motherboard user guide for how to reset to default factory settings. If the BIOS is set to work with the on-board only and the on-board VGA is dead the motherboard is supose to detect that and switch to AGP. If is not doing that chances are not only the on-board VGA controller is gone ... the motherboard is gone too.
Try with a PCI video card.

1.Reboot with the AGP or PCI video card installed - assuming the on-board is gone but the motherborad still OK.
2. Press DELETE key
is supose to go in BIOS settings menu.
Browse and Look for on board VGA adapter ENABLE/DISABLE setting or something similar.

(My bet ? You need a new motherboard.)

GE Side By Side refrigerator evaporator freezing up


There is a pc board that senses how long the condensor motor has been running and when it gets to a certain amount of time it turns off the refridgerator condensor and turns on the heater coil that melts any ice formed on the condensor coils untill a temperature sensor says enough then it allows the condensor motor to run again. The problem is definitely in this board which is a common problem with Whirlpool and related brands. This board is about 50 to 75 dollars and can be easily replaced.
