I have a Whirlpool Model ER8YHMXSL00. The fan is cycling off and on in rapid succession then finally turns off. Any ideas ? - Thx, Gregg

FixAll :

Hi thanks for choosing just answer

FixAll :

Does if make.a clicking noise also? And are you talking about the freezer fan?

Customer:

Yes it does make a clicking sound ...and yes it could be the freezer fan.

FixAll :

I mean the fan you are hearing is it in the freezer or on the back of the fridge?

Customer:

sorry... it seems to be freezer, not coming from the back of the fridge

FixAll :

And you say rapid how fast would you say?

Customer:

cycling every half second

FixAll :

Ok there is a defrost control that has a relay on it that will shut off fan this is the only thing that could cycle it that fast , it usually runs about 80-100 dollars. This should fix the problem.

Customer:

is it user installable ?

FixAll :

Yes it just plugs in just gotta make sure its unplugged so you don't get shocked

Customer:

ok ... thx !
