Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX be helping you today. Give me a few minutes to pull up your model. thanks .Be right back. there are a few things that can cause that. but most likely your defrost thermostat is run in line with the fan and has failed. Thermostat WR50X10003      Alternate Product View can you check continuity to that ?
