Condenser fan should be moving quite a bit of air. My guess is, the replacement motherboard was incorrect, or also defective. This is a very common issue with GE fridges. It happened to mine too. Do a search on this forum for GE refrigerator, and you'll find the threads.

But in order to check out the evap coils, you need to remove the plastic panel in the back of the freezer (inside the freezer). Then you can check on the two-speed evap fan as well. There is also a flap between the freezer and fridge sections that opens when the fridge needs cooling. If that's stuck open (which is also fairly common), the freezer won't stay cold enough.

To test if your condenser fan is not moving fast enough, pull the fridge out a few feet and place a box fan behind it. Turn it on, and wait a few hours. If the temps in the fridge/freezer come back to "normal" (0 in freezer, 37 in fridge), I'd say the problem is either with your condenser fan, or the fan controller on the motherboard. If nothing changes, I'd suspect the issue is on the evap side of things.

I listen that the result of freezer problem was a bad circuit board controller card. The freezer has been running around 15 to 25 degrees, depending on the air temperature. The condenser fan was moving very slowly and the condenser and condenser coils were hot. They put a box fan behind the refrigerator to cool the condenser coils and the temperature dropped to 0 degrees in the about 4-5 hours. Also, thought it must be the condenser motor. But after some on line research, including this site, and talking to service companies most problems occur in the controller board. They have already replaced the board about 2 years ago and was not confident that this was the problem again, but discovered it is not uncommon to replace a board more than once.

Good luck.

Check in the main menu the evaporator mode..and put it in a higher voltage for the motor..this way will increase speed....if this fail to change than the motor is faulty ..either from bearings or from some resistance that give the voltage for the motor..

Error code er ff on kenmore model 795.78349.802


This is an error code that pertains to the evaporator motor but could also be the main board.
If the evaporator motor is running, the main board will probably need to be replaced.
It could be a wiring problem but it's not very likely.

If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made, at the motor and board, to determine which component has failed.
These checks require a meter and can be difficult to make, even for a technician.

We have carrier packeg ac 50TJ-028-231S and we have problem the ice coming on evaporator and compressor but Freon is sec.60 PSI and DIS.250 PSI and runing time presser going less plz give good reply thx


Clean both the evaporator and condenser coils. Check the rpm of the motor because a slow running motor can cause this problem.
Did you check the "Superheat" and "Subcooling" ?

GE refrigerator won't keep cool


check the voltage going into you fan w/ the old main board and also w/ the new board. You might be getting a low voltage w/ your new board or the fan you replaced is for a diferent voltage. Have you tried to put the old fan back w/ the new board??

Evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control


It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Blown Fuse, needs fix'n


You CAN open the unit (keep in mind that even unpluged there is still voltage runing through the system, so.... dont fry) and you will notice, if the face of the unit is towards you you will see on the left hand side a power supply board, the fuse is on that board, and it is a tube fuse, 125V 8A. Most stores do not carry the 125V version anymore, but will carry a 250V. This is okay to use where the voltage is not the main purpose of the fuse.
