GE Profile model # PFS22SISBSS not cooling

3 posts in this topic

First, I would I would like to thank you for reading my post. Last year, my refrigerator and freezer were not cooling. I noticed the condenser coil fan spinning very slowly with very hot condenser coils. I replaced the fan motor and it fixed my issue.

Now a year later, my fridge and freezer are not cooling again. The compressor is very hot and both the condenser coil fan and the evaporator fan in freezer are running. I unplugged my fridge for a couple of days and it worked for a week until there same issue of poor cooling. Also, there is no ice build up in the evaporator coils.

Any suggestions for troubleshooting this issue? I vaguely remember doing some Ohm testing of the mother board and it being OK then. However, I am unable to find the same troubleshooting info.

1) is the Compressor running, ? OR just click, pause, click, ?

2) no frost on the Evaporator Coils inside the Freezer ?

Thanks for the reply!

Of course it's cold this morning. I opened the doors and pushed the turbo cool button to get compressor to run (humming and slight vibration).

There is a small amount of surface frost on evaporator coils after being on overnight. One small section (2-3 could has larger crystals growing about 1 cm thick).
