How to remove and install fan in freezer compartment of GE side by side

I need to remove a fan in the freezer compartment because it has a broken blade which is causing lots of noise, then replace it with a new fan. I cannot get the old broken fan off of the little pin that holds it in place. Any suggestions for removal of the little fan please?

Most of these fans have a small dowell pin that goes through the fan blade sleeve and through the shaft look for a pin on the side of the fan blade sleeve then you will need a pin punch to push this pin through. After you do this save the pin or dowell because you will need it to attach the new fan.

I have a GE Profile PDS22MCR bottom freezer. The freezer is getting colder and the fridge is getting warmer....... What could this be?


your damper assy isn't opening to allow cold air from the freezer up into the refrigerator,its located on the rear wall in the refrigerator compartment,you need to make sure theres a fan running in the freezer,then if so you should feel cold air blowing up in the refrigerator compartment,remove this panel and see if its shut,if no air is felt then the damper door is either broken or jammed shut or if its o.k.,then your control board in the rear of the unit could be defective not letting power to the damper door or even on of your thermistors in the side walls of the refrigerator that monitor temps in the refrigerator and freezer could be defective

Top of freezer is fine but the bottom isn't as


Sounds like your evaporator fan is not doing its job. The purpose of this fan is to move cold air from the evaporator coil (behind the lining of the unit) to the rest of the freezer and to the refrigerator.

The fan should be behind an access plate at the top of the freezer compartment. If it is running, you should be able to hear it. If you don't hear it, open the access plate and look at it. If the fan is not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Ge profile evaporation fan installation. Where is it located?


It's located in the freezer compartment . May have to remove all panels , including the icemaker , to install it . If the fan isn't working though , the problem is probably the main control board , located behind an 8 " X 10" panel , on the back of the refrig . Usually , a resistor burns out and the freezer fan stops working .

Warm refrigerator compartment


There is a fan that blows the cold air down from the freezer to the fridge compartment. It is usually called a freezer fan. Most of them are behind the plastic lining in the freezer. I just noticed that your fridge is a side by side. I have never wored on a side by side but I imagine there is fan in them as well.

Freezer works refrigerator doesn't ge tbx-25zle


Hi: Your defrost heater or defrost timer is bad. There is an off chance your freezer or fresh food compartment are so full they block the airflow. If not full, Remove the food from the freezer, unplug the ref. and hit the back wall of the freezer with a hair dryer. Avoid plastic components as they will melt. When your defrost mechanism fails frost will form where it shouldnt and block the airway to the fresh food compartment. That's why the freezer still works. That will get you a week or two of fresh food getting cold. If your'e handy remove the back panel of the freezer at the bottom will be a glass tube with a metal coil in it. If the coil is broken buy the new defrost heater and install it. If not look for a defrost timer. Use the model number of the refrigerator to find the part. www.searspartsdirect.com will have a parts schematic to help you find out where the timer is located. There shipping is high so try to buy it locally. I hopes this helps, Jeff

GE side by side - upper freezer warming once a week then freezing


Had the same problem. Bottom of freezer was about the right temp but the upper part was way too warm. Fridge side was fine. Ice maker stopped making ice - it wasn't broken, but it won't run through its cycle if the temp is too high. Cubes already in storage hopper melted and water refroze as it ran to lower, colder part of fridge. Problem: Fan controller for freezer compartment was faulty. The fan itself was fine. Fix: GE replaced the main circuit board that controls everything on this model, including the freezer compartment fan. Once that was done, temp returned to normal, ice maker is happy again. The board had undergone several revisions from the factory installed one (could tell this by comparing the part number on the old and new boards - they increment it when they revise it.) Bad news: the part/labor were expensive and of course failed after the warranty ran out. Good news: the board is now guaranteed for 5 yrs. (Why wouldn't the factory-installed board ALSO be good for five years instead of just one? It's not like the replacement boards are made better.) Labor is covered only for 90 days though so it won't be free if they have to come back after that.
