Fan not running and some frost on the back freezer panel

 

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
ok, the first thing to do is remove the back panel in the freezer and see how much frost is on the coils, then see if the fan spins freely. let me know . thanks Bryan

frost on coils, fan spins but has resistance
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
as long as the frost is not to much(clogged) then its the fan if its not hitting anything the fan has failed, you will need to replace it. you can get this @ http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-253.648424-%3d%3di1154698&PartID=1154698 thanks Bryan

what frost that is there is pretty thick. could I plug the fridge back in and see if the fan works?

 

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
yes . do that if it runs freely then its probably ok, the thick frost is either because the fan inst running or you have a defrost problem,
