GE Side By Side | fridge side not cooling

GE Refrigerator Side by Side
Model No: CSCP5UGXAFSS

We moved the fridge from downstairs to upstairs. Refrigerator worked fine. Freezer and Fridge. Had to remove doors. Disconnected water line and power line to left door (control panel). Currently no water supply available for the refrigerator so have disconnected the water line.

After setting it up upstairs, the freezer cools fine, but the fridge seems to be running warm. Panel shows 0deg on Freezer and 66deg on fridge side. Have run the Turbo Cool feature on the fridge. Manual says this can take up to 8hrs to cool.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

I'm not sure if your unit has an electronic damper that may be stuck....I'm checking.

In the mean time there is a fan in the freezer that blows the air over the evaporator that cools the fridge side. Can you see if there is any air flowing in the fridge. You may have to hold the light button in.

There is also a fan under the unit to discharge warm air from the condensor. Make sure that is running and the coils underneath are clean.


There is a part called the air handler assembly. That may be where the fan is and where the cold air comes out. So far I haven't found any damper.

I've also located the evaporator fan in your unit. It is a DC motor and may have a problem. It's directly controlled from the electronic control board. Parts 610-613 are the fan assembly.

In my last post I left a link to the custom cool section. There may be a second evaporator coil and fan in there. I don't have access to the service manual and I haven't worked on this style unit.

How old is it ?

Thanks Pete.
The Turbo Cool feature worked fine. Temp on control panel for the fridge side now at 39 deg. With the doors off the interior dropped to room temp and I guess took time getting cool again.
Thanks again.
