Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Hello, I have a GE gts18fbrerww refrigerator for about 6 years. Yesterday I started to hear a noise coming out from the freezer. Is the evaporator fan causing the problem? could this be replaced if I order the part?


Answers :

Good day,
\015\012Yes. The motor is the only moving part in the freezer compartment.
\015\012Changing it is pretty much a nuts and bolts type repair.
\015\012I suggest you also buy a new blade when purchasing the motor.
\015\012
\015\012In rare occasions ice can form around the fan blade causing the problem, so I would remove the rear panel and check for that issue before you buy the motor.

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


It's the board,also change out the sensor that's on top of the coil,it looks like a white bullet,the part number for the temp. sensor is wr55x10025 and the board is WR55X10942.everything runs through the board,i've seen when you call for water the co ... GE GTS18SHPBS Top Freezer Refrigerator

Recurring and ongoing noise from freezer. I believe the evaporator drain assembly has been replaced twice. It is again making the same noise and the same symptoms which isi that eventually the freezer freezes over and ceases to maintain propoer temperature. Upon repair it functions fine for about 1-3 months than the problem "noise" begins again. What could be causing the newly installed part(s) to go bad?

PSS26PSWA refrigerator problem with freezer warming & ice melting, dripping onto contents of freezer. Repairman called GE for solution. GE told him he would need a "part" (a small piece of foam) to take care of the problem. We waited on the piece of foam for 4 weeks. Now, a week or so after the new "part" has been installed by the repairman, the problem is showing up again today with the freezer temp up to 16 degrees, so far, causing the ice to melt.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106.79172990. There is a fan in the freezer which has just started to make a very loud sound when the fan is spinning. It sounds like a bearing problem. When I stick a soft wooden stick through the vents in the cover in the back of the freezer to stop the fan, the noise stops. Can I safely presume that this is the "evaporator fan" and is it fairly easy to get to for replacement? In other words, can I get to it by removing food and parts from the freezer to rem

My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan. I am sure the drain port in the back of the freezer is not draining, but could it be a problem with the evaporator system that using compressed air to blow through the drain port may cause damage somewhere. One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and

The freezer has stopped cooling...meaning the fridge has stopped too. The fan continues to run, but blows warm air. Twice before the fan had frozen and stopped blowing the cold up to the fridge...we had that part replace each time. now it seems to be a different problem. Had noticed in the week before failure that the icemaker had started to leak causing a block to form in the ice tray. Any suggestions?

Cold air is not circulating to the fridge section in my side-side ARS9167AW amana. Also lower freezer section is very cold. This problem happened 2 years ago and a fridge repair service fixed it for $200. All they did was replace a small simple little fan. I am almost certain its the same exact problem and I need to replace this fan again. Can someone tell me where this fan is located (that pushes air to the fridge from the freezer)and what type of fan it is and/or the part number. Thanks, --E

The freezer is not freezing, only gets to temperature 35 degree ferinheight, sometimes the evaporator fan will make loud noises, also there is water on the shelves in the refrigerator that I have seen coming from the air vent in the back of the refrigerator that is used by the evaporator fan. Could this be caused by a clogged draing from the freezer or is the defroster heater no working. Thanks so much Albert

Neither the freezer or the refrigerator is cooling. Repairman replaced the relay switch, but this was not the problem. After installing new relay switch, repairman said he could not hear it click or whine. After looking at the parts listed on the web site, I noticed there are 2 "relay" parts. Do I need both or could the problem be the compressor?


Yes, there are two are actually 3 parts. Its probably NOT the compressor. You need a three in one start kit which is pretty much a turn key part if installed properly. Its basically a start relay with the capacitor for the starting and running of the ... Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator
