GE Bottom Freezer PDS22SBRAR not keeping temp
by Jerry Murphy
Noticed the temp in the freezer and frig were dropping...compressor and fan not kicking on....Placed a fan near the coils and this kept the temp from falling...dropped even more overnight. Have replaced the fan motor already, seems I wasted my money there as this had no effect. Any advice would be appreciated, Jerry MurphyAnswer Replacement parts in Cabinet section of General Electric PDS22SBRARSS Refrigerator
The only common link between the fan and the compressor is the main board. The only problem is this really doesn’t sound like a main board problem because typically the main board will cause the fan not to run or the compressor not to run. Usually it will not cause both not to run but it can.
With that being said lets treat it as if they were two separate problems. We will start with the fan because if the fan isn’t running it could be causing the compressor to overheat.
