#311390 GE fridge PFCF1NFXCWW - fresh food section gets warm overnight

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 17 January 2015 - 06:46 PM

Here is a board from a repair I did two days ago... notice the burned out resistor adjacent J2. Tale-tell sign of a bad evap motor (The other resistor is for the condenser fan motor) . However, usually you won't see such an extreme burn and many times you won't see anything. It's just very important to test fan motors prior to replacing boards on many GE's.

#311382 GE fridge PFCF1NFXCWW - fresh food section gets warm overnight

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 17 January 2015 - 04:26 PM

It will not start up at the same interval each time. I've had them take seemingly forever to start up.

With regards to different symptom.... a failing fan that eventually stopped running can cause your fact pattern... that's why I suggested the j2 test. That's also why I wound up purchasing an anemometer as a slow turning fan fooled me (see http://appliantology...e-pita-video/). Luckily I caught it before it stopped altogether. You may want to test the fan motor directly... and you certainly don't want it to trash your new board, so I suggest checking it out asap.

Regarding temp controller, you can sort of test it using diagnostic mode test 0-2. This simply tests communication between board and controller. Otherwise you would need a ge diagnostic test gig, which is nothing more than a 5 button temp controller. So if everything works with the test jig, then you'd know the problem is your controller

#311195 Defrost drain issues on a Frigidaire FPHB2899LF4

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 15 January 2015 - 10:27 AM

I think confusion abounds..... the square "drains" are air vents..... the water on freezer ceiling is from condensation... I agree with Bro A97...maybe freezer drawer not closing properly.

#311152 Jenn-Air Fridge JFC2089HPY keeps freezing food.

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 14 January 2015 - 12:47 PM

If your thermistor is fine and there is no physical blockage to the damper or a broken damper door, you have a failed board.

This is the Utah board configuration, a close cousin to the problematic Jazz Board configuration . Either your mainboard is malfunctioning and misinterpreting thermistor info or user interface info, or it cannot trigger damper motor on its own or your user interface itself is sending incorrect information to the mainboard.


So either you need HVB Part number: AP4434691

Part number: AP4434691
or interface Part number: AP4358837

Part number: AP4358837


Odds are and Murphy's law suggests the more expensive hvb board. Get it from Appliance parts pros and you can return it if it doesn't solve the problem.

is the evaporator/freezer fan running?

Is your evap frosted over?


#310835 GE Profile refrigerator not working! :(

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 08 January 2015 - 09:22 AM

sounds like your fan took out the mainboard. Try disconnecting the J2 connector (controls evap and condenser fans) on the board to see if the fridge starts up. If it does than certainly you have a bad fan motor and board. The burning smell is either the condenser fan motor or one of the pair of resistors next to the j2 connector. If, in fact, the board is toast, replace the offending fan motor prior to installing a new board otherwise you will suffer a repeat performance.


#310831 GE GBSC0HBXARBB Fridge

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 08 January 2015 - 08:44 AM

This is a different board... located in ff section. I believe this is an LG made (or partnered but not sure) GE bottom mount. This is a non-adaptive defrost control board.

#310651 Defrost drain issues on a Frigidaire FPHB2899LF4

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 05 January 2015 - 04:01 PM

if the heater is malfunctioning, you would have a defrost problem. It appears you have a drainage problem... also a model number/manufacturer problem..... you list a Frigidaire model number but say it's a Kitchenaid..... makes a difference for sure for if is a Kitchen-Aide, I'd say chances are you have the infamous duckbill grommet problem. If a Frigidaire, more than likely an iced over drain tube. Regardless, the problem is with the drainage.

#310480 GE Profile Refrigerator PFS22SBSBSS - Defrost system issue

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 02 January 2015 - 10:34 AM

One last thing for my own understanding.
Would I be correct in assuming that the reason my evaporator was frosted over is that the thermistor reading 4.5kohms made the main board think the evaporator was hot and thus did not need to be defrosted when in fact it was full of ice?
Many thanks again!


bingo!
