is there any frost on the back panel in the freezer? do you hear the fan running in the freezer? is there a clicking comming from the back?
Thanks for your reply.
There's no frost on the back panel.
The fan is running and there is cool air blowing.
There is no clicking.
It is cold and vibrating. I also cleaned a lot of dust off it.
There's no clicking or buzzing.
There is air flow in the freezer and fridge, but it's not very cold.
I just opened that panel and I'm a little uncomfortable to playa round with that board.
I have never done this before and I'm not sure how sensitive this board is or how I would remove it.
I was able to get in there and the board shows no burns.
Three of the plastic posts were easy the 4th was a pain.
No can do. I've got stuff in there and people are arriving at the house in a little bit.
Bryan, We've got people staying overnight and we're off to disney tomorrow.
I think that the freezing in the refrigerator compartment may be from a "damper" problem.
It looks like the problems are with the compressor and maybe also the damper.
I've made an appointment for a GE guy to come on Wed. So, I don't think i'll be able to check the coils before then.
What would be your best guess at this stage or is it impossible for you to tell?
(I've googled this refrigerator and even though this unit is just a few years old it looks like others have had problems w/ the compressor and damper. The damper is noted for causing freezing in the refrigerator area.)
It's no longer freezing things in the refrigerator and
the freezer is definitely warmer and things are thawing. There is still cool air blowing on both sides. It's just not cold enough to freeze anything.
