That model has 2 evaporators so check if upper refrigerator section evaporator has a thin frost on it when running.
If it does then it must be airflow problem.
If it is not frosted then possibly temperature thermister is bad.
Or it could be totally iced up like solid block of ice so air cannot circulate thru the evaporator, if you see that then possibly defrost sensor is bad.
So first thing is get a visual of the evaporator to see if its getting cold and frosty.

Since the various parts for this machine including the seal and bearing are not available I will probably let it go to washer heaven and not spend any more time on it.

For Speed Queen HA models, remove the 4 hex head bolts at the bottom of the agitator post assembly and remove the agitator post assembly. I used to have a slide hammer that threaded into the threaded hole in the top of the post. But, considering the age of that thing, everything is probably rusted together. don't waste your time.

the latest in the saga:

the circulation pump has basically stopped working. i don't know if it has been failing for some time or just quit suddenly. it seems to have proper resistance and is getting 120v during cycle so i think the problem is mechanical.

oddly enough, diagnostic mode returns service error codes f5e1 (door) and f7e1 (heating element). what i don't know is if those are codes from a prior error state or if the washer thinks those are current error conditions. the door is definitely working correctly and the heating element seems to be fine. the customer error codes are f-e- which i think means no error.

i don't know if replacing the circulation pump will solve both symptoms.

I have a GE model pfe28kskbss. The freezer was working, the crisper was freezing and the fridge was running at 56. I replaced the evaporator fan. The freezer still works, the crisper works normally, and the fridge is maintaining a 45 degree temp despite it being set at 34. It has been more than 24 hours. What should I do next to troubleshoot this problem?

Thank you.

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: GE JRP15 electric oven not fully shutting off
« Last post by sdMark on July 04, 2020, 05:52:38 PM »
Update: with the circuit breaker on and the oven off, I confirmed 0 volts across the heating element again and was preparing to slide the element back into the hole and screw it in. I missed the hole and got a good pop and spark between the left side of the element and the inside back of the oven. You can see the black mark in this new photo. However when I check again, still 0 volts across the element leads and 0 volts between the element lead and the oven. Why the spark?

Thanks for your reply and especially for the tip about expected voltage.

I am confused about the history of the unit.
"Bought 2001, always worked OK, I installed"
Did you move it or what ?
Original owner bought 2001, I bought from him 2013 and moved to my house. So really I can only say it's worked fine since I've owned it.

You will have to pull it and check the wiring.
Then check the power across the heating element when it is off but heating.
If it is switching power to the element5 (240 volts), then I would say it is a control board problem.
When I pulled the oven, there are no exposed wires, just 3/4" flexible conduit. It's hard-wired, no plug.

I pulled the lower element again and measured voltage across the wires. 236 volts when on, 0 when off.

Now I'm wondering if this whole thing is a mistake and it just takes a long time to cool down. How long should an insulated oven take to go from 350 back to under 100 degrees? I tested 1.5 hours this morning...

Has anyone been able to look at my previous entries asking for advice on repair. It appears many of the parts for this unit are no longer available ?
