GE Fridge GSS201ETAWW

6 posts in this topic

The fridge started whining off and on about a week ago. Fridge to this point is ok, stays cold, makes ice, etc. Now, I notice the blower fan in the freezer section (side by side) is pulsing. My worry is that it's ready to quit. Been reading about defective motherboards, but not finding anything specific. Serial number says this unit was mfg in Nov '06. Thanks.

The fridge half does not get cold any more. Replaced motherboard, unit is running, but still not getting cold. How do I know if it's the fan motor that's bad? Thanks.

Why didn't you replace the fan, too?

Is the fan running consistently and at full speed?

How do you know the fan isn't stopping when the cold control is satisfied and then failing to restart for the next cooling cycle?

If the Fan is bad enough, it could take out the Mother Board

This is also common. That's why both should be replaced at the same time.
