Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..do you have a model number? everything works but the fan? thx
I have to get the exact model number. Be right back. All electronics seem to be working but I do not hear the compressor cycling.
is the compressor warm ? the fan beside it running?
Model # XXXXX XXXXX We have also been having trouble with the door seating correctly lately.
Isn't the compressor under the fridge in this model?
compressor is at the back
and there is a fan beside it that cools it down
I would have to move the fridge. Be right back if I can move it, i'll check.
I cannot move the fridge. It is in a space that I cannot get it out. Too heavy for me to move
so which fan were you refering to as not running?one in the freezer?
Yes. The one in the freezer that circulates the cold air.
is there any frost on the rear panel of the freezer section inside? and you can see that the fan has stopped or you just dont hear it running?
There is no frost on the inside of the freezer. I can see that the fan is not running and it seems that the freezer temp is getting warmer. The fridge temp is definitely getting warmer. I do not hear the compressor cycling on/off.
but you can hear the compressor at the back running ? it makes a humming noise
Let me check and I will be right back.
The freezer/fridge is definitely humming.
if the compressor is running and you can see the fan not running and there isnt anything blocking the fan from turning ( you can put a small screwdriver in the vents and see if you can turn the blade) it looks like you have a bad fan motor
RepairClinic Item #1372146 (OEM Part)
Evaporator fan motor
Manufacturer Number(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
And that would definitely make the fridge compartment warmer?
yes , that is the only way the air gets into the fridge section ,by that fan it will affect both sections
Including the freezer? Excuse my questions but I am just trying to make sure that I am communicating well enough.
Also is the fan motor changed from the freezer compartment?
yes ,if that fan doesnt run , it will affect both sections , both sections will start to go warm , because you have zero air flow ,and the compressor wont shut off because the fridge is not reaching temperature , no problem with the questions ,this is what i do all day
and yes , the fan is changed from the freezer , you remove that rear freezer panel
