Also, I said earlier, no voltage at fan motor connector pink and white. That was wrong,.....compressor wasn`t on. There is actually 13.00 DCV at Pink and white at motor connector.

Sounds like a faulty motor or an open circuit between the board and the motor. Check for supply at motor.

According to manual you should have 5.5 volts DC to 12volts DC to yellow and white wires at fan harness depending on speed motherboard is asking for....maybe the board is bad.

Just realized your wires are different colors...Red and white should be 13.6 volts DC, your pink and white I would imagine should be 5.5 volts to 12 volts DC....just because the colors are different the results should be the same.

Hey JoeBeef: thanx for reply. That's exactly the situation,......13 DCV at red/white; 13 DCV at pink/white.

Do you think new motor is bad? How do I use ohmmeter to check continuity on new motor?

Sounds like bad condenser Fan to me.You got voltage there but These refrigerators have a lot of board problems. If i install a condenser ran motor and did not work i would  install a board off truck next.As you can see these refrigerators are a bitch to work on sometimes.But saying that a bad new fan motor out of the box would be rare.Your call to see if you can return fan motor for a another one.But knowing these refrigerator it would not hurt to another board on hand.

Hi Dab: My parts supplier tells me they sold 100 motherboards in 2011 and only 10 fans,....that's got to tell a story.

I think I'll try ordering the board and then 'sweet talk' them to take the new fan back if the old fan works with new board.

Thanks for you help.

Are GE refrigerators kind of known for bad fans motor taking out the boards too or is that just with a bad evaporator fan motor?

Just trying to remember what I have read about them in the past. Don't see much of GE around here so I don't really have the experience with them as some of you other guys.
Hope you find our website helpful.
