Have Maytag refrigerator MTF2142EEW01. When refrig is first

Resolved Question:

Have Maytag refrigerator MTF2142EEW01. When refrig is first powered on evap fan does not run. It starts running later presumably after cooling has occurred. Is this normal or should the fan come on upon power up? The compressor does come on.

that is exactly how the unit is designed to work. it will not turn on until the evaporator coils reach -10 degrees so that it doesn't blow warm air.
