Hi,

The fan in the freezer supplied cold air to the fridge.So the fan will be controlled using a timer.For interval of time the fan will run in some model based on the temperature setting you have set,For max cool temperature it will run for more time than less temperature.Check the fan wiring using for any shortage in connection.The fan runs from the signal from temperature control board.Please check the temperature control board using multi meter that proper volts is flowing.Check the fan wings or not bend.

Test the fan for continuity using a multitester. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the fan does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

ome time the frost will block the fan from running.Switch of the Refrigerator for 8 hours and more so let it get warm and will melt all the frost.Some times the board signal will be blocked by ice.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Unplugged frig overnite once I plugged back in made a gurgeling sound whenever I opened the door what would that be?


Usually that is caused by a bad defrost heater thermostat or defrost timer. Failure to automatically defrost is the cause of freezing up.
If you don't feel up to doing the work yourself you should have an appliance repair shop look at it.

The gurgling is caused by water in the catch pan under the fridge. When you defrosted it some of the water made it into the drip pan (and maybe overflowed onto the floor). The fan inside the compressor area under and behind the freezer may be splashing in the excess water in the drip pan. This by itself is not a real problem since it is designed to automatically evaporate the water drained during automatic defrosting, but the excess water and potential overflow onto the floor can become a problem.

My GE refrigerator GE GSL25JFPABS stopped cooling on both the frig and freezer sides. I pulled it out, took off the panel and cleaned around the fan. I plugged it in and it worked perfectly for just less...


you may have a defrost problem, check for frost in freezer, back wall, or pull off rear panel and check evaporator, it should have some frost on coils, if frozen all around evaporator, check glass element at bottom of evaporator, should have blue and pink wire going to element

Frig won't cool RM2652


You'll need to get in touch with the store you bought it from but Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm




Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Fridge is warm


Hi!!! you have 2 problems that are causing your frig not to cool.First one is a seal seal problem,make sure that the compressor is running and the inside fan motor and the condensor fan motor locaated behind the frig..if the are then you have a seal system problem ,most likely a freon like or restriction..Second you could have a defrost problem open the freezer door and look bank on the wall of the evaporator if you see frost or ice then you have a defrost problem..Just replace the defrost timer and you should be fine..remember to defrost frig when installing defrost timer.Good luck.

Frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either


Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
