Mainboard location Fan inside of freezer is not coming on with the compressor. I checked to see if the coils in the freezer were frosted up and they were just slightly. The freezer is getting cold but the fan is not running inside of the freezer. the compressor and fan are running under the unit. I am suspecting a control board or faulty motor? I will take the motor out and bench test it. If it runs, is it the control board? Thanks for input.
There is usually a thermistor in the coil inside that switches the fan on after defrost. It might be open circuit or the coil may not be getting cold enough. Check the condenser is clear and clean and try a thermometer in the evaporator (coil inside) ...

I have a GE refrig. model GTS22ZCMARCC. The evaporator fan has been pulsing up and down forever. Then the freezer stopped getting cold and the refrig. part was not as cold. I check the evaporator fan and it was not running but the evaporator coil was cold and the compressor was running continuos. I replaced the fan motor and it still does not run (same problem). Is the only other thing that could be causing the problem be the control board on the back of the refrig. (AP4436216)?? Thanks, Ri

The Refrigerator is 2 years old, and is no longer able to reach below 38 degrees in the Refrigerator or Freezer. 3 days ago noticed food in freezer was defrosted.

Hi Chris,The problem would seem to be that you developed a small leak in the refrigeration system. This is also assuming that you checked and cleaned the condenser coils which are underneath the fridge. Excessive dirt could also cause thi ...

My freezer on a PSS27SHMD will not get cold enough. I'd like to try to fix myself,but I need help troubleshooting. I took the back off. It apprear that the condenser fan is running, The Condenser was a lottle dirty. I cleaned it. I took the inside panel of the freezer off and the coils were icy. Not crazy icy.

Fridge side is getting warm. Freezer is good and cold. Evap fan runs, good airflow in freezer. Motor controlling the fridge air damper is working, it opens/closes properly when door opens/closes. There is good airflow into fridge section. Air return at bottom is not obstructed. Compressor and condenser fan operating fine (freezer is very cold and holds temperature). Airflow over condenser coils is fine. Thermistors checked OK with resistance. Evap fan windings checked OK with resistan

You can confirm this if you touch the condenser and after 1 hour you had switch it on, then the temperature of condenser should be about 130-140 F. If it is less than 120 F then you had a Freon leak.\015\012Loss of the ...
Ice must have melted and the refroze...ice everywhere...turned off, clean ice out....now wont get cold.....condensor fan running, freezer fan not running....ohm's at compressor is 4 and 6 and 10, changed defrost timer , now hear something comming on, cool at bottom of freezer
Check whether you are getting exact 120VAC at freezer fan.if not either the freezer fan is got faulty or its wirings are short or the timer which you changed is not connected properly so its not supporting the evaporater fan to run properly.\015\012 ...

GE Model #:GSS25RGMA WW side by side freezer issues... I am having an issue with the freezer not getting cold enough. The fridge side is very cold! The freezer is cold in the top half, not in the bottom. I turned it down to 3 on the settings (to defrost) and only the middle coils were frosted after 24hrs. Ice maker is not in use, drain is clear, even the pan is dry! The compressor is warm, but it and the fans run continuously... Any ideas???
Whirlpool side by side, model no. gd5yha. Both sides are not cooling. I placed a thermostat in the freezer, it stays at about 55 deg. The compressor does come on and runs from 10 to 30 seconds and then cuts off. The coils are clean and all the fans work. The coils do seem to get cool when compressor is on but the compressor doesn't stay on long enough. Any idea what the problem is.

Sounds like he was right. If it not to old you could try some freon. But if there is a leak. you won't ever find it. Make sure that the coils on the outside are clean. they may be under the unit. If there is a fan the make sure it is running. and try ...

I have a Kenmore m/n 363.78282893 I bought from my neighbor to keep in my garage. About two weeks ago I noticed drinks were not real cold and the frozen goods were thawing.

The fan inside the freezer is not running at speed. It is, however turning very slowly, as if it's not getting the correct amount of voltage. If I spin it by hand, it is free moving, but slows down to a crawl. The compressor is working fine. The freezer floor is cold enough to freeze water, but the top shelf will not freeze water. The fridge is not cold as it usually is. I think the problem is the thermister or thermalcouple that is attached to the evaporator coil. What would be you

Fridge is not cooling; freezer side is ok. No cold air being blown into fridge from top or vent in about the middle of the demising wall between freezer and fridge; even when cold air IS being blown into freezer. Compressor seems hot when running and freezer is cooling; even with an external small fan blowing on it to help it out. Normal cooling fan adjacent to compressor is running. Coils are dust free for the most part.
