My refrig.. was making a rather loud noise one day and a couple days later, it would not freeze nor refrigerate. The refrig is semi-cool as is the freezer, but no where near where they should be. I paid an appliance repair man to come out and replace the "Motor DC Evap Fan" but no such luck. Any ideas...?

Re: My firdge is operating, but not cool nor freezing
Did he check it out and make sure its bad... these ge models are tricky... sometimes they take out the mother board with a bad evap fan motor.. seems like it should still be his problem to help fix, if his repair didnt solve the problem

The buzzing/grinding noise is probably a bad connection if you are using earphones. Put a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol on some toilet paper and clean the prong for your earphones. Wait a minute and reinsert the plug into the jack. As for the freezing up of the video, you might want to download and install your video drivers for your emachine. Go to the manufacturer's web page to find the right ones. Don't forget to reboot after installations.
Your icemaker sensor is out of its place. unplug the unit . check bottom of your icemake, the sensor looks like a little ***** , insert it back. turn unit on, and reset the board, Hold power freez, Power Cool for about 10 seconds.
Sounds like the evaporator fan is not working. Check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer. If not running, try removing the panel in the back of the inside freezer and manually spin the fan blade . This sometimes works.
i find it hard to believe the compressor is going out,if the fridge is staying cold,put a thermometor in the fridge and it should stay about 32 degrees,ideally around 40 is a good temp.if the freezer isnt staying below 32 degrees then it sure sounds like a thermostat problem.But i have heard of computers in these newer refridgerators but havent worked on any just yet.
sounds like its freezing up on you. check the drain outlet and make sure that its clear. also i would replace the defrost timer on this unit because its suppose to bring on the heaterfs to melyt the ice so thaat yoiu don't have to. they are around 30 mdollars at the appliancew repair store and all you need is the model number and serial number for the uit. after you get it it's either on the very top of the refrigerator section or in the very back. It has 4 wires going to it. good luck.
If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee
It's either the start device on the compressor or you have a bad compressor. You'll have to pull it away from the wall and take the bottom back panel off to check the compressor. It will likely be real hot to the touch from what you described happening. If there is a little white colored box on the left side take that off and remove the wires, etc. and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out then that's the problem. It's fairly common and they make a kit to replace it with a better designed part that's real easy to install yourself. If your compressor has a label on it with a blue indian head symbol, then you're out of luck as that brand pretty much sucks and is destroyed by heat. It would mean a new compressor and then you'd be lucky if the new one even worked from the factory. Avoid those Tecumseh compressors at all cost.
