GE Profile refrigerator not blowing air.

Recommended Posts


Hello Sir,


I have a GE Profile refrigerator(Side doors with bottom freezer) Model# PFE29PSDASS.


Woke up in the morning with food in the freezer thawed out and the refrigerator totally dead. The only thing that

looks operational are the lights. I also noticed that there is no air circulating at all inside the freezer (bottom) nor the top. Zero air movement. When i turn off the power  the evaporator fan spins for like 10-15 seconds and shuts off.

I hear a slight humming noise in the freezer compartment but no visible parts moving. Thats about it.


I started working on diagnosing the problem by replacing the parts one by one and putting back the old part.


1) Replaced evaporator fans - no luck. same symptoms. Put back the old part.


2) Replace control panel - no luck. same symptoms. Put back the old part. flashing green light on the control board.


3) fridge thermistor(Top portion) -- no luck. same symptoms


4) Removed the thermostat and connected straight -- no luck. same symptoms


I also figured out to disconnect the inverter from the compressor. I am unable to take it out from the compartment since it it too tight.

I was not sure how to test the inverter.  Any help is totally appreciated.

Same problem with GE 25.4. I ordered on this site, and a year later similar problems with air control started. I seem to have problems with software
