SOURCE: Unusual Fan noise on the freezer side

Matt, this model has a main board in back that controls the operation of the evap fan. This is a two speed, DC motor and the fan takes a least one minute to change speeds. Therefore any speed changes in less than a minute time is abnormal. I usually find that the board is causing the problem. If you're handy with a meter you can do some tests. On harness J2 on the control board (just below the top harneses) check the DC voltage on pins 3 and 8 reading from left to right. There should be at least 12VDC. If you find a fluctuation of voltage, your board is giving you the problem. Catriver...post back

Hi!

First of all you need to clean the coils (condenser coils under the unit or evaporator coils inside the freezer). The coils inside could be iced over because of failure of defrost system. Now check that the condenser fan under the fridge is working properly. Check that the fan in the freezer work which pulls cold air from the coils inside freezer and blows it to the fridge side. Are the temperature control knobs in the fridge adjusted correctly? It actually just opens a vent to let more or less cold air in from the freezer. It takes a while for the ice to build up in the freezer enough to affect the cooling.

My first guess would be the defrost timer. You can manually turn it to engage the defrost cycle and observe whether or not the defrost heaters come on. Now use a hair dryer to speed up melting the ice when there is lots of ice buildup. Most timers are 24 hour timers. It will turn the defroster on every 6 or maybe 12 hours depending on the model.

Before testing the defrost heater, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The defrost heater is usually located at the back of a side by side freezer or under the floor of a top freezer. It will be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker and the inside rear or bottom panel of the freezer.

The heater is connected by two wires. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Why does my freezer sound like a Cessna when the fan goes one?


Sounds like you have a defrost problem and have a build up of ice in the back of your freezer and the fan is hitting the ice. Check the defrost heater and thermostat with ohm meter.

Freezer fan in my GE side by side refrigerator surges and whistle


With you model and brand I would want to check the voltage on the fan and shaft play. Meaning the fan may be going bad or the voltage being altered at the motherboard. I do know your model with the control board that it has if a fan becomes defective the board is also affected. If the fan goes bad and replaced it is very possible that the board will fail and cause the new fan to fail. If you need help with diagnostics please let me know, Thanks, Sea breeze

Food in the freezer on my side-by-side GE Profile Arctica (PSH25MSSA SV) is thawing. Temperature is higher than normal (melted ice cream, etc.) but returns to frozen after awhile. Has happened many times...


It's hard to understand how the refrigerator compartment would be okay, but the freezer is not. The evaporator coils are normally behind the freezer. The cooled air is moved from here to the freezer and refrigerator by the evaporator fan. Is this the fan you are saying is going on and off? Or the compressor fan underneath the refrigerator.

The necessary conditions for proper cooling are:
1. Compressor is running; 2. Compressor fan is running; and 3. Evaporator fan is running.

I have a GSL25JFPH BS refrigerator by GE. It made the whirring sound, a repairman came out and told me that the fan motor needed replacing, price of $277. I sent him away, and after a few minutes on the internet, saw on this site that a new circuitboard (part# WR55X10656) should fix it. I found it on ebay for $83, and it took about fifteen minutes to install. No more whirring!!

If there is not a little switch on the side of the non-rotating part (below the blades) then your fan is not reversible.
