Default Warm fridge, slow fan #PFS22SISBSS
Model Number: PFS22SISBSS   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Our frig stopped getting cold all of a sudden (both fridg and freezer). This is a french style frig.

The fan opposite the condenser is moving, but like a snail and not at the speed it should be. I gather its just the thermostat?

Any good online places to buy also?

You already found the problem. This fan motor has to be replaced together with the main control board.

- The condenser fan motor Part number: WR84X10055

Part number: WR84X10055



- The main control board Part number: WR55X10942

Part number: WR55X10942



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for General Electric PFS22SISBSS Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you. Are you positive the main board would be part of the issue?

Yes, I am. It was recommended by GE and was proven by our experience.

Default Still warm

So I received the board and the new fan motor today. Installed everything without issue. Fan is running as it should be. However, in the instructions for the control board, it refers to the lower panel of the frig where the compressor is and that for All "bottom freezers" and those with a certain serial number set, that the green wire coming from the power cord/supply be cut. I find this odd, as it's simply a ground. In the photo they show the green wire running from the power cord to the connector. In my frig the green also has a yellow stripe which runs to the frame of the frig as a ground, then back up to the connector and then back down to the other component next to the compressor.

End result, she's been running for about 3 hours and there's no cold air coming out. I set it to turbo cool and nothing. The freezer and the frig area are both still warm in the 80 degree range.

Thoughts? Something else that needs to be replaced?

Does the compressor work?

Did it work prior to the repair?

Default Compressor

The compressor was working. Never an issue. The frig just stopped getting cold one day (Freezer and frig area). Right now it's blowing room temp air.

Someone locally told me the following:

I would highly discourage you from attempting to replace the comnpressor unless you are liscenced and equiped to do so. It requires special equipment including recovery equipment an braizing equipment to properly install a compressor. In addition, as I mentioned, the sealed system is likely contaminated which would neccesitate replaceing the evaportor and filter drier. You may want to investigate the cost of a replacement refrigerator. If you would like us to quote you on the job, I wouild just need your model number to do so.

This is absolutely right. But you don't know yet if there is something wrong with the sealed system or the problem is somewhere else.

Remove the rear panel inside the freezer and check how the evaporator coils are covered with frost. Post the result.

Default No luck

The evaporator was dry as a bone and still the frig is just blowing room temp air. The compressor doesn't seem to be cranking as it once was, but it is warm to hot.

Next item to test?
