Question about GE Refrigerators
If the fan is running you more than likely have a defrost problem.
look at the back wall of the freezer section if it is frosted up.
If it is frosted up. it's not defrosting.
There three components in this system. The defrost heater, the defrost termination stat., and the defrost timer. Newer refrigerators do not have a timer per say it is build into a electronic board usually mounted on the back of the refrigerator under a metal plate. The termination stat is the cheapest part @ $ 25.00. The heater should run @ 50.00 to 70.00. The board could be as much as 200.00 or more. If the refrigerator is over 10 years old you may wish to look into getting a replacement. Appliances are designed to start failing after 10 years old.
If you unplug the refrigerator let it defrost then plug it back in. it will work properly about 3 days before it frosts back up.
Hope this helps
