GE Refrigerator warm on top, cold on bottom

I have a refrigerator, model GSS22JFMCWW. The top part of the frig and freezer is warm and the bottom part is cold.

A few months ago, we changed the defrost thermostat, defrost heater, as well as the Board ASM. After that, it worked but it has started causing problems again.

Any suggestion on what the next steps can be to fix the problem?

Thanks!

Hi sdkjr, and welcome to DIY Forums,
-I would check or change the defrost timer ( in bottom near compressor) and also make sure all coils are clean and condenser fan is working. ( that's the one at the bottom, unless you have a coil up the outside back)

Do it Right - Do it once.

Thanks for the advice.

In the freezer section of the fridge, there is a fan there behind a panel. I noticed that the fan stopped working. If I give it a little push, it starts to work again. However, when I unplug the fridge and plug it back in again, it stops working again.

I looked on GE's website and I think the part is WR60X10074 .

Anyone else have any ideas or thoughts if this is truly the problem?

That's the evaporator fan , and could be the problem. Is it possible the blades are binding anywhere, or hitting a lump of ice or something ?

Thanks for your reply and help.

I looked and it is not binding or hitting anything. It will spin if I give it a nudge, but when it is done cooling, it stops (as it is supposed to I believe). However, when it starts again, it will not start spinning.

I'm guessing I just need to replace the unit and see what happens... Thoughts?

My money would be on a bad evaporator fan as well. That fan pushes the cold air into the Fridge to keep it cool.
