did it before, fan does not start.
Fan is working but cannot measure the voltage, seem working freely no ice built up, quiet and low speed? cannot do anything with the mainboard, is it quite expensive to replace? or do they have any sensor with the fan to control variable spped?
Arrowed red is the connector to measure. Count holes from left to right just like you read. Not the wires but the holes in the connector. Black meter probe in hole 3 and leave it there. Red meter probe first in hole 4. Then test again in hole 8. The fridge must be operating and your looking for steady voltage "near 13 volts" In both tests. If you do not get the correct voltage the board is bad, if you do the fan motor is bad.

Thanks Bryan, that will help a lot, that's all for tonight.
My Ge Fridge model- PFCE1NJYDSS freezer working but too warm
Optional Information: What have you tried so far?: on March 13 2013 ask Brian from Protech this issue, got advise to check the board with meter, seems fine, replace the fan part no .WR60X10185. Fan now working good but still no cold air to the fridge, look like no airflow coming to the fridge compartment at all. Freezer temp -14oC, make less ice than before, fridge 18oC all time, at the back seems the coil where the fan not cold at all, no frost build up anywhere at coil?
where is the damper? is it in the fridge compartment or frrezer?
I remove the panel, the damper 219 shut when I opened it, manual open it.
After opened it suppose cold air with flow tru? I have not feel any cold air flow tru yet? Because I opened the door? or need time for the cold air build up? If that damper not working do we need to replace it?
when i remove the panel where the damper situate, it on the close position with opening hole, I manually opened it. But I feel no airflow coming tru that opening, I presume may be another gate from freezer compartment shut to prevent the cold air flow tru the damper opening.
no air go through the vent to the damper at all.
when i order the fan motor and replace it, I have to cut the 4 wire (with colour code) and weld back on with the old one because they plug in with the clip with the right color wire( white, blue, yellow and red). Put the fan as in the correct position when I remove it, but don't know with way the fan will turn, clockwise or anticlockwise? And another suspect is when put the fan blade to the motor shaft any specific position ( how far deep in the shaft?).
I only put in the position so the fan blade do not struct any cover or parts around.
for the fan speed I already replace the motor, the speed control by the board, should it be faulty?
Have you got any iced up vents diagram?
I eliminate blade reverse, defrost problem, no ice build up at all at the back.
We only have faulty board lead to speed of fan (how fast suppose to be?), and vent blockade from freeer, but no ice build up in freezer grill?
