Question about GE GSH25JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
GE Side By Side Fridge, pulsating fan in freezer. Fan runs for 3-4 seconds and stops for 3-4 seconds, in a cycle and is fairly loud. I unplugged and took most everything apart. Everything looked fine. When I put it back it ran ine for about 5 minutes then started up in the cycle again. Everything seems to be at the right temp, fridge is 2 years old
If you have plastic bags (vegetables, storage bags) that are close to the middle sensor, the sensor cannot determine that the food is cold (plastic bags confuse the sensor). Move the plastic bags away from the sensor. The top shelf has vents that should not be blocked with plastic bags. There is also a larger sensor at the bottom of the freezer that should not be blocked as well.
I called a repairman for mine since the fan kept cycling and making a whistling sound. Within an hour the sound went away and it's been 3 days without the sound.

Djones, I have the exact same problem as you. However, I do not notice mine happening all the time. Maybe once a day. It is annoying and my frige, like yours, is about two years old. How long is the warranty do you know? I bought GE because I thought they were reliable. nymustang.......

Djones, The evap fan motor should not change speeds in less than 1 minute of time. The fan motor has two speeds. Usually this is a indication of a failing main board. If you have a meter you can do a voltage check at the J-2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins J2-3 and J2-8 and 8 to 13VDC between J2-3 and J2-4. If this voltage stays steady, your problem lies in the evap fan motor. If this voltage drops out or fluctuates, it's more than likley the board....Catriver...post back.
