The bearings on the condensor fan motor are dry. You can attempt to lubricate the motor with a parifin based oil using either Union 76 "Turbine Oil" or a product called ZOOM-Spout turbine Oiler that is available in most hardware and appliance parts stores. See this link for examples of the oiler: http://www.google.com/search?q=Zoom+Spout+turbine+Oil&hl=en&safe=off&pwst=1&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&prmd=ivns&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&ei=sqPZTcivKISEvAPOv-G_Bw&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=image&resnum=3&ved=0CCoQzAMwAg&biw=1003&bih=587

Do what you can to clean off the bearings and armature shaft then lubricate with the oil.
Most of the time lubrication will snap a tired fan out of running slow. On the hard molded motors (encased) lubrication takes much longer as you have to lubricate and wait for the oil to reach the lower bearing deep inside the housing. It is ok to oil from the top and let it run to the lower bearing. It will not hurt the fan. I place the fan on a paper towel for as long as I can and wait for the exvess to drain off before re-installing the motor. On the non-encased motors you can remove the bearings and clean the motor shaft and the bearing then lubricate reassemble and lubricate again.

If your using an external fan... it is OK to use the refrigerator while your waiting for the oil in the motor to drip out. Just make sure there is a 15 minute pause each time you remove power or the compressor will not re-start properly.

Not sure if the compressor is running. If not, you'll need a repair man. Since fans are running, most likely the thermistor. Also, if you haven't unplug from the wall, wait 10 seconds then plug back in; this may reset the control board. The link below may help. GE Refrigerator Not Cold Enough

All i can say is you will require a tech to get this fixed.

check freezer for frost build up and if fan is blowing, check condenser, make sure its clean, and fan blowing,

check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, controls should be in the middle setting,
check make sure compressor is running.For this you will require a tech..

Goodluck.

Slow compressor fan


You need to remove the fan and test it somewhere different. The compressor is in need of the condenser fan. Everything will overheat without that fan working. You should also test the power at that pin plug. Let me know what you find. Sea Breeze

Temp light does not light up and temp does not get cold. inside door latch is broken model #pfs22sisbss


The main control board could solve the display problem . May also solve the cooling problem , but would need to know , if frost build up on back wall inside freezer , are both fans working (freezer and compressor cooling fan) , is the compressor running ,are the coils clean in back of refrig ? Unsure about a "door latch" . The freezer door ,rides on glides , and the magnetic gasket should hold it closed .
