Refrigerator not cooling
I purchased in 2003 a ge side by side model #gsl25jfpabs. I noticed the divider panel was extremely hot to the touch so read on your website what to do. The condensor fan was not working so tested the main board and determined I needed a new board. Replaced the board at a cost of $175.00 and fan started working fine. Answer
Now my freezer is making ice and nice and cold but now the refrigerator won't get below 60 and it seems the evaporator fan in freezer now not working. It was working before replacing the main board because I could hear it?
Could I have hooked the main board up wrong? New board has more connector outlets than old board but I counted the prongs and plugged into what I thought was the correct outlets. What should I do now?
I just emailed you regarding my ge side by side model #gsl25jfpabs. I believe I stated that I just replaced my main board because condensor fan not working and now my refrigerator won't cool only 60 degrees. I stated my evaporator fan not working I think but it is working. I guess I didn't leave my door open the full 3 minutes. I just tried it again and left it open for 4 minutes and opened the freezer and I hear the fan running. So don't know what to check for now. condensor fan running good. thxs Kim
Hi Jeff,Replacement parts in General Electric GSL25JFPABS Refrigerator
Open both doors and press in on the freezer door switch. Then look at the top right hand corner to see if you can see light from the fresh food section. This will indicate if the damper is opened or closed. The damper should be open (unless the door has been opened for more than three minutes). If the damper is open make sure the light goes out when you close the refrigerator door. If not check the door aliment. If the fresh food door is lower that is should be it may not be hitting the door switch which will cause the damper to close and the light will stay on.
Assuming that everything was working before (besides the fan) lets take a look at the main board. There is a plug marked J3 that is what controls the damper that controls airflow to the fresh food section. Make sure it is plugged in good and not backwards. Do the same for the J1 connect (all the connectors for that matter). The J1connector is for the thermistors if a thermistor is unplugged the damper may not open, as it should.
If you don’t find anything….
Lets assume for a minute it has nothing to do with the resent repair. Check the back wall of the freezer to see if it has heavy frost. If so remove the back wall and see if the coils look like the one on this page under defrost problem GE Refrigerator Not Cooling
If so you have a defrost problem, that page talks about defrost problems.
Let me know what you find and if you need anymore help.
