Insufficient cooling upper food storage area
Pulled out bottom crisper drawers. Removed drawer slides. Removed side plastic panels, then removed back panel which exposed the fan. Removed fan and replaced with new fan. Had to use the heat gun because there was ice buildup on left corner of rear panel. Reassembled in reverse order. There is several excellent videos on You Tube.

This model of refrigerator has a dual cooling system and it was the refer condenser fan that was making noise
You have to remove the shelves and drawer's along with the drawer mount. there is a wiring harness you need to unclip to remove the crisper electrical panel

There are six nuts to remove the lower panel at the back of the compartment where the lower drawer normally is. no need to completely remove the panel, you only need to get wiggle room to remove the fan at the base of the center panel.

There is a small triangular cover used to conceal the fan wiring harness on the right side of the center panel that you can use the putty knife to slip in on the center panel side to unclip and remove

Use the putty knife and slide it down both sides of the center panel that runs vertically to unclip it - at the base of this panel is where you'll find the condenser fan, you should be able to wiggle it out - there is a built in clip on the lower right side of the center panel that you can slip the wiring harness out of - for me this was the hardest part of the replacement as it was just awkward.

After it's removed slip in the new fan and seal and reassemble. I think the whole operation took maybe a half hour - 40 minutes. It's pretty easy all said and done.

Refrigerator began to make a very loud noise which lasted up to 3 minutes long. This sound repeated once a day every 4 to 6 days
GE sent a technician to our home. He listened to the video I had made of the loud noise the fridge was making and he knew what I needed without even looking at the appliance. The parts would take 60 to 90 days due to distribution chain issues. He gave me the part numbers and I paid him $140.00 for his service fee.
I found the parts myself that I needed on PartsSelect.com which arrived with 2 weeks. I watched a YouTube video on how to install the parts. The hardest part was emptying my entire refrigerator of perishables so I could easily get to the malfunctioning fan motor and the motor’s boot. I used a heat gun to dislodge ice clinging to the parts I needed to remove to reach the fan motor. It worked well. Once I was able to detach the old fan motor & its boot, I easily slid the new one into its place. I then reattached everything I had disassembled. It works beautifully without disruptive noise.
The water filter cartridge door also easily snapped into place, replacing one with a broke latch.
I love the saying,
“What one man can, another man can do.”(Except I’m a girl - my husband was amused).

I replaced this fan motor on a fridge that wasn't cooling. Now everything in the fridge is frozen. Any ideas would be appreciated!
For model number GFE27GGDAWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Randy, Thank you for your question. If you have just replaced the evaporator fan motor and the everything in the refrigerator is now frozen, check the temperature settings to see if they are too low. If the temperature is set correctly, you will need to check the thermistors in the refrigerator to see if they are working correctly. A thermistor senses the temperature in the refrigerator. You will need to the test the thermistor with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. Before removing and testing these parts, please unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet. Thermistors will produce different multimeter readings based on their temperature when you test them. The ranges below only apply to thermistors at 32 degrees F. Before testing them, you will need to place the thermistors in ice water for 5 minutes to bring the temperature to 32 degrees F. Set your multimeter to the Rx1 setting and touch the probes to the terminals, you should receive a reading of 16,600 ohms (+/- 5 percent). If you receive a reading outside this range, you will need a replacement thermistor. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

We replaced the evaporator fan in the fridge and the fan continuously runs, we’re on day 3. The freezer works and ice is being made. Why does this fan keep running?
For model number DFE28JMKFES
PartSelect logo
Hi Dan, thank you for contacting us. We have researched the model and would suggest checking the wiring connections of the newly installed evaporator fan motor and making sure the evaporator coils are clean. If the issue remains, the problem might be with the temperature sensor, part number PS304103. A faulty sensor might not be sending proper temperature readings to the control board, causing the fan to run continuously. Checking the sensor for continuity using a multimeter might help. Good luck with this repair!
