Freezer section fan speed goes up and down constantly. I know it is a multi speed motor, but this problem just started and is constantly changing speed. All temperatures are normal and no frost in freezer

Re: ge profile artica refer fan speed PSS29NHPBWW
Hmmmm no thats peculiar it will slow down and start back each time the doors are open also fan will turn on even if fridge is turned off if a door is opened londer than 3 mins. If the fan still operates irradicly even in the liner protect mode (turn refrig off open door for 3 mins, fan turns on) then the main board is faulty not uncommon for these refrigs.

Try spinning the evaporator fan motor with your fingers. If the freezer door was left closd it may have rusted on its shaft and be stuck. We need to test the voltage going to fan if oiling its bearing and spinning byhand does not get it moving. Click Here for a service manual=> HERE and here=> GE Artica Test Sheet The fan motor or a relay on the motherboad may also be defective. You should get 12-13 volts DC at the fan motor, Thanks Sea Breeze
This is a common problem with the GE Artica and Profile. The mother board=> WR55X10942 Main Control Board Compressor start components and condenser or evaporator fans must also be considered in the diagnostics. If you would like to do this yourself let me know and I will be glad to help you go throgh with the testing, Thanks Sea Breeze
check the evaporator fan; listen to see if it is running check the baffles between the freezer and, the refrigerator box for air flow. Check the control knob to see if it is turning the cold control shaft. If these are not the problem: replace the cold control
This could be a relay on the control board or the compressor is short cycling or both. You can use my assistance to help you resolve this or call a technician, this depends on you. I am very familiar with the Artica/Profile and know that if you can follow instructions and use a test meter we can get this fixed. I would like your complete model number so I can refer to the exact model you have. I will leave you contact information and a service manual and a web page to use with the diagnostics. This problem will not get better, Sea Breeze
The main problem with the Artica/Profile is that they have a main control board and a thermostat board inside the fresh food compartment. I have a repair manual and will send you a copy if you want but we are going to have to look at the control boards for burn marks. Let me know if you need me. Thanks, Sea Breeze
hopefully you have a service warranty. I have had me fridge for two years and have replaced the temp control panel twice thus far. serviceman coming AGAIN on Tuesday because now everything in the fridge is freezing. cna't get the temperature in freezer and refrigerator regulated properly. GE knows they have a problem...something in the computer panel board sticks. I'd give anything to be able to put this on the curb and buy a new refrigerator.
You say the motor in the freezer, you mean the fan motor? If the
refrigerator part is cold (normal temps about 37F) then you likely are
not getting air circulation. The fan motors burn out often, just check
for 120 volts AC on the fan motor terminals with a multimeter, if you
have power, it's a dead motor.
