Fan or coils?
I gather from the fact that this is the #2 most popular post in this sub-forum that GE evaporator fans are pretty problematic? I have a GE Profile PFCS1PJZSS French door that I inherited. It can't be more than six years old. A year ago, I think the evap fan was getting bogged down by frost. A repairman told me the compressor was bad. I allowed the unit to sit for a few hours, plugged back in, and it worked like a champ for another year.
Then, last weekend, same symptoms (warm fridge/cold freezer), but no fan noise. Different tech comes out and proclaims the same thing: "Only 5% of evap coils working. $3K to replace sealed system. Need a new fridge!" And yet 24 hours after the guy left, freezer is once more at 0 degrees.
Granted that my evap coils might be under-performing a bit, but if fan isn't working at all (which is clearly the case, based on room temp fridge) then couldn't I just get that replaced and keep using this thing for at least a while longer?
