GE fridge model GSL25JFTFBS

Hello,

I have a side by side GE fridge with an evaporator fan motor that is not operating. I tested dc very large between red and white wires on wiring harness and I am getting 13 volts. I replaced fan motor and it is still not working. The fan even feels warm to the touch like it’s getting power but it won’t spin?? I even popped a new control board in just in case something weird was going on with that. Same result... I know the replacement fan comes with an option to get it with the evaporator thermistor or without. I went with the version without sensor. Should I change thermistor? Any help would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks

Rick

There  are different fans but yours will only take the one that goes to yours.    Im so=howing it as WR60X10185 is that what you put in?

did you cut the jumper when you put. In the board as per instructions for certain serial numbers?

 Good. That test the. Boards ability to. “Create” 13vdc, but What is. The voltage between the  white pin and. The yellow one right next to it? That is the fan.  Its not uncommon you need to replace both 

make sure you have right parts and they are installed corectly.   The board should have been wr55x10942p  without the p its just an older version, and if it is ...0942R it is rebuilt

Thanks for the reply. I will have to check between white and yellow. I have since put original board back in. I checked and the serial number does not appear to be one that needs that jumper wire cut. Strange how fan seems warm to touch like it’s definitely getting power but yet doesn’t spin. I will check dc volts between white and yellow.

Thanks

Rick
