Question and Answers


Why does the fan come on briefly and then click off on my GE refrigerator model TFX27FLB?


The wiring diagram for your refrigerator is shown in the first image below. The evaporator fan, condenser fan and compressor are all controlled by the thermostat. The circuit also runs through the defrost timer. If the compressor, condenser fan and evaporator fan together only turn on for a few seconds and then click off, then your failure is in one of the following:

  • Thermostat
  • Defrost timer
  • Wire harness contacts
  • Wiring between components
If just the evaporator fan is turning on for a few seconds and then shutting off, then you likely have a failed evaporator fan or a loose wiring contact in that circuit.

If you can safely use the wiring diagram below to determine the cause of your failure, you may be able to fix this problem yourself. I recommend unplugging the refrigerator and checking the wiring contacts on the components based on your specific failure.

The second image below shows the location of components in this model of refrigerator.

You can view a parts list diagram and order parts for your refrigerator on the Sears PartsDirect website.
