Hi, this is Russ, I'll be helping you with your problem today. THANKS! The part below is the evaporator fan motor...if it is not working the symptoms you get are just the same as you describe since it then does not allow the cold air to circulate
Item # XXXXX
Motor, evaporator fan
Manufacturer Number WR60X10008
It is behind a grill in the freezer section and can be tested with a volt ohm meter for continuity once disconnected for power
ALSO look around the fan for ice build up....THANKS
Hello Russ, I do not see any ice build up yet (as I'm trying to locate the location of this part) as I do have a new GE Evaporator Fan motor in hand and would like to try to replace it to see if this is it, is this easily replaced?
YES...BUT CHECK THE MOTOR IN IT FOR CONTINUITY FIRST.. it is not recommended to just go swapping parts...thanks
On some models, the fan motor requires dismantleing a lot of the interior panels...
I do have a tester, but I'm trying to find the part, is this in the panel behind the ice maker within the freezer compartment? I removed a panel there and see a fan that is facing up that is not spinning...I'm not sure how to access for test and possible replacement.
Like I said in some you need to dismantle the interior panels and also remove the ice maker...sorry this is almost impossible to explain
LOOK an www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number for a picture
actually, I just went to turn the fan and it is off and spinning...do you think this is the actual part that just kicked on??? (and maybe it was stuck for some reason)
your CORRECT MODEL NUMBER IS" TFS26PPDA BS
yes, that's the model number and yes I was already there...prior to coming here...
OK sorry I don't have a better diagram
No worries, I think this was the part and as it's now spinning I'm going to leave the doors closed and hope it cools things down! I'm not sure if I'm able to stay in touch on this one, but very much appreciate your help and hope to be able to reach back to you with an affirmative and negative, hopefully the former though :-)
just come to this site and aqqress me...I telecommute and come and go thanks!!!!
GOOD LUCK GOD BLESS!
