You may notice frost on the panel that covers the evaporator coil in the freezer. This is a tell tale sign of the coil being frozen up blocking air flow.
Inside the freezer compartment is where the evaporator coil is located. It is behind a cover that allows air to enter the bottom and then forced out the top by a small fan. You should be able to feel the air flow coming out the top. If no air flow the evaporator coil may be frozen and needs to be defrosted. There is a heater at the bottom of the coils which aids in this and may need to be replaced. A couple of screws usually holds the cover in place. Remove the cover and place a small fan in the door to aid in melting the ice. Do not apply heat of any kind ie hot water, blow dryer etc because this can over pressurize the coils and damage the system. The heater may look like a small light bulb. It can be checked with an ohm meter for continuity to see if it needs to be replaced.

Freezer fan only run sometimes


If you nudged the fan and it started working it could be defective and needs to be replaced or it could be freezing up because of freezing condensation. Be sure that all the coils under and behind the fridge, if there are any,
are free from dirt and dust. If this is a refridg/freezer be sure the air vent between them, on the inside, is not blocked by anything. The airflow is necessary for proper temp control.

From the outside, the unit seems to be running fine. Inside, the freezer is not freezing and the refridge is not cooling, both are at room temp. I cleaned the coils front and back at the bottom of the unit...


Check the back of the freezer and see if it is iced up in there sometimes you get an ice buildup and have to defrost the whole thing to get it to start working

Refrigerator runs, cools (freezer too), then stops cooling for a few days (freezer stays somewhat cool), then starts cooling again. Help...:(


In these new fangled ice boxs is what you call adaptive defrost control. Instead of the old tried and true defrost timer, brainiacs have decided to use artificial intelligence to determine defrost.
The basic pattern of adaptive defrost is:
COOLING,PRE-CHILL,DEFROST,DWELL,and POST-DWELL.
Hey I ain't making this up. The ADC (adaptive defrost control) Counts the number of times the doors are opened, the total compressor run time, and the length of time the defrost heaters were on during the last defrost. This method supposedly enables the adc to work nice in all kinds of conditions, whether hot and humid or cold and frigid climates. COOLING Mode will remain for an indefinite time or until defrost is determined by the micro-processor. When all systems are go for defrost the adc makes the jump to light speed by going into PRE-CHILL, this brings down the temps in the freezer to off set the defrost operation so that the food temp does not suffer dramatic temp rises. Pretty cool ain't it? If the ice box is in pre chill and the door gets opened then a DEFROST HOLD OFF will jump in and not do a defrost for several hours. If the door is continually opened at the end of 16 hours the adc is gonna defrost that ice box anyway. The defrost period varies but is a maximum time of 45 minutes including when the DWELL kicks in. Dwell is the length of time the ice box stays off AFTER the heater is terminated.
Then The POST DWELL will kick in. The post dwell will fire up the compressor and condenser fan but the inside fans will not run allowing the coils inside to cool down before them fans kick in and she jumps back into Cooling mode. I bet you would like to have a copy of GE's adc repair manual wouldn't you?
