Got home today to find that my GE Profile bottom frezzer fridge P/N:PDS22SBSLSS was making a noise from the middle of the back that sounds like a bad fan. As I have had the circuit board replaced last year, i decided to unplug it. When plugged back in the compressor started and the fan noise returned and stayed constant with out shutting off.

 

It seems like the noise is coming from higher than I can get to from the lower access panel. The fridge temp is 57 and freezer is 27 now condensing. Can anyone tell me what fan this is and whether this fan is the sole culprit here for both my compartments to warm up?

 

Also how does one gain acces to components higher up in the refrigerator on this unit?

 

TIA

I got into test mode and ran the manual defrost and I got 3-4 cups of water out. When the fridge reset, I heard the compressor come on and the fridge sounded normal. I am assuming there may have been some ice that the evaporator fan was rubbing on causing the noise? I will wait and see what happens to the temps as they are still around 57/27

Could be a bad damper motor which is located in the base of the multi-duct on the back wall of the refrigerator section.  Should be able to access by removing the shelves and center mounting track.  Might be able to defrost and reassemble.  Could still have a problem with the evaporator fan motor since the temperatures in both sections are not as cold as they should be.  Life's Good!

Durhanm, not too sure what you are getting at? If it is that you think I should have added to my original post for a different problem then my bad. I elected to start a new thread as the problem is totally different then I experienced before.

 

Needless to say, since I have done the service mode defrost, all seems to be fine today so i will keep an eye on it...

I just found it humorous that

1. You wanted information regarding evap fan access... yet Reg posted a diagram of your model in the previous thread which showed evap fan access

2 Reg questioned the accuracy of the model number ... yet Reg posted a diagram of your model in the previoud thread which showed evap fan access.

Although, I wasn't specifically stating it, if you had added to or even referenced your previous thread:
1) it would have eliminated any confusion.

2) Prevented repeat questions and/or answers

3) Significantly reduced the research time of masters wanting to help (contrary to popular belief we don't remember all of the countless models and variations in order to answer your question. Many times we have look up a diagram in one place, search for a manual, interpret it then do research for real world resolutions) and more importantly

4) Prevented me from having the extremely rare opportunity to poke fun at one of the greatest appliance master in the known universe. Every once in a while I like to tug on Superman's cape.
