When the condensor fan motor started making those "Dying Mouse" noises I knew it was time to replace it. So I removed the fan motor and re-oiled it's lubricating packing, reinstalled it and promptly ordered a repacement moter online from PartSelect. I've ordered parts from them in the past with great results and rapid shipping. So now the "Dying Mouse" has been evicted and my wife is happy. And everyone should know, ( If Momma ain't happy, Then nobody's happy.) Thanks again PartSelect for your fast, reliable parts source with very reasonable prices.

Water still came out the front when pressed, but no ice. After removing the Ice container, & the top shelf I noted the icemake inlet was iced over. I turned off the icemaker, turned down the freezer temp, & allowed Ice to melt, but problem returned. I next removed the back bottom cover & cleaned the condenser coils, & drain pan; they were extremely dirty. Then I noticed the condensor fan was not on. After getting the nomenclature plate info off the condenser fan motor I left the back cover off, & put an external fan to blow on the coils as a temporaty fix until I could get the part & replace it. During that time the refrig functioned normally. 3 days later my condenser fan motor I ordered from Parts Select arrived & I installed it.

On partselects video the gentleman removes the fan and housing in one piece. This is a great idea but does not work on this brand of ge. I removed the fan housing screw as instructed but left it in place and swiveled it enough to access the retaining screws with a socket driver. Over all swap of the fan was seamless and the video is a gem. Andy

refrigerator not cooling

I removed cover above the light from the back of the freezer. I removed the fan and clipped the wire leads, after disconnecting the breaker to the fridge. I connected the wires with wire "union" from Radio Shack. Could have used wire nuts. I put the breaker on to check that it was running, then put the cover back on. However, to fix the build up of ice on the coils in the back of the freezer, I also replaced the thermisor and the heater coil after defrosting the coils with a hair dryer. Both were easy repairs and the fridge works fine.

Freezer not cold, Frig cold enough, runs all the time, Hot to touch in spots.

My compressor fan that blows over the coils was not spinning. I measured 120 VAC going to the fan so I knew it should have been spinning but wasn't. Took fan motor out and took it apart and super lubed the motor to get it spinning again temporarily until I could get the new one in. Put new one in and has been working for about 10 days now. Freezer is not below 0 deg F which is what you want. Frig is below 40 deg F also what you want.

The last coil on the end of my auger had broke off and the ice tray would not feed ice out of the box.

The ice maker tray was removed and the e-clip was removed from the end of the auger shaft,I then released the snap clip retainers and removed al the screws to romove the end of the Ice crusher section on the box.(It is a good idea to run this whole unit under hot water as the plastic could crack if to much force is applied during dissasembly. Plastic can be brittle when very cold). The shaft (auger)was extracted and the plastic retainer nut removed with a channel lock plier. Careful as it has a left hand thread. I was then able to remove the crusher blades and bushings from the end of the auger shaft and reassembled the parts on the new shaft. Refer to the parts catolog blowup view page on the website for proper installation of these parts if you get them mixed up. It is of great help. I then reassembled the auger back into the box and reassembled the other parts and screws to finish assembly. Popped it back into the frezzer and it works perfect. Tools required were nothing more than a thick kitchen towel to hold the Auger down and a flathead screwdriver for the e-clip retainer. A channel lock plier to take of the end nut as it has no flats for a wrench and a phillips screw driver for a couple of screws. Total time was about 20 minutes. I probably saved about $100.00 in doing this myself. Thanks again to PartSelect for getting my paet to me in a couple days.

I suggest to take apart the ice bucket first. I did not do that and ended up pay 3 times for shipping. Be sure to save the thrust washer and "E" retainer as you are required to by 12 of each. Partsselect should package a complete auger repair kit. Kit should have 1. Auger 2.Crusher cover (usually break with auger) 3. Nut, thrush washer and clip. would save the do it your selfer a lot of confusion.

Followed your video. In addition, put a couple wrappings of blue painter's tape around crusher knife assembly before removing nylon nut. Removed & replaced from shaft, as a single unit. Also, as I removed each screw, I put it back into the hole, and put a small piece of tape over the head, to keep the correct screw with the correct part. Yes, bending the plastic to remove the crusher unit took a lot of patience. Probably added half hour to the job.
