Mmm, whats the voltage ? it should be 12 volts DC is it ? the digital readout on the display didn't have an FF in it while it was blinking ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The fan is a 12 volt evaorator fan . Yes.

okay the fan is bad , you will need to replace it. Now the control should have gave you an error code like FF (freezer fan) but it just flashes so thats a little you have a supply house near you to pick up a fan ?
