Hello,

Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the wire from the J9 terminal at the control board and check for continuity between this wire and the neutral wire connected to the J7-9. The normal reading suppose to be about 22 Ohms. If the reading is different, check the defrost heater and the overtemperature thermostat for continuity. Post the results.

Gene.

I'm not sure how it can help you because all terminals and connectors are marked very clear but I attached it to the post.

Default New info on replacing evaporator motor and motherboards

If the evaporator motor fails it usually burns out the driver on the motherboard unless the motherboard is the new style with relays isolating the drivers from high current due to failing motors.
Very rarely will any motherboard damage an evaporator motor, the drivers are limited to the 12 volt supply level. If the internal dc supply should put out much higher voltage, internal electronics would probably fail before the motors. If not, all the motors would probably fail, not just the evaporator motor.
So, it is suggested to replace just the failed evaporator motor, unless you can see a burnt resistor on the board, or you have other motors that failed. This is even more justified if the motherboard is the new style with the extra 3 relays.

I have a GE Profile model PSS27NGNABB. The refrigerator part is cool but the freezer is not cold. It normally makes ice fast but the ice bend has hardly any ice. How can I tell if the compressor is going on this refrigerator and would it be worth fixing, if it is the compressor? It sounds like a something bottomed out (clunk noise not whinning) it's kinda like the compressor is trying to work-would this be the problem?

Default GE artica compressor fan or motherboard?

Hey I was hoping someone could help me with my ge fridge model#PSS26SGPASS /serial # SF413296... Im pretty sure I seen it on here before, but can't find it now.. Alright so the compressor/ condenser fan is not spinning very fast and the compressor is getting really hot... I have floor fan on compressor to help cool and it works. Both freezer and fridge are at right temps. So I think its the fan but I seen a diagram on here where you guys test the motherboard, so could someone send that diagram to me just so I could be 100% sure before I replace fan... Thanks in advance because I know you guys help me all the time.
