Model: MBF2254HEQ

The fan (location: from the backside view, it is on the bottom, at the left hand side), is running in nonstop, approx. 7-10 days. In the freezer there is mild frost on the door, and on the lighting fixture.

This is what we did so far, but did not fix the problem:
1.) Defrosted it (two times already, to make sure, there is no frost on the coils)
2.) Vacuumed the extra dust from the bottom coils
3.) Vacuumed the dust from the fan
4.) Vacuum the dust from the Water Inlet Valve, which is at the bottom of the left hand corner, next to fan.

Thank you in advance.

It is colder than usually, but not so much. The compressor not running all the time only the fan.

Thanks Agnes, The fan in the rear is supposed to run all the time, this is what cools the compressor, If the fan has become noisy then you may have to replace the motor if cleaning the dust did not stop the noise.

We do not think it was running all the time in the past. My husband also just at this moment found in the manual, that it should run continuously.


The other new thing, there is frost on the top inside the freezer door, and sometimes on the lighting fixture.





If the unit is a model that switches the fan on and off when the compressor is running then the electronic control will be bad. This will not be the cause of the frost. The frost will have built up in the unit because moist air is getting into the unit some how, likely because the door gasket is not sealing properly.

If the fan does not shut off within a minute of the compressor stopping you should replace the electronic control, this is located inside the panel where you adjust the temp.
