This for a Kenmore...

This for a Kenmore Refrig Pro Model 401.40483800

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

freezer works but frequently fan makes noise and refrigerator section temperature rises to approximately 59 degrees. Is this because the fan is defective? I am assuming that the fan is the evaporator fan.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Harvey Meisel

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

All other electrical components such as the interior lights work. Ice cube maker works

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Either the fan is defective and going out, or ice/frost is building up hitting the fan if it's making a noise. You'll need to remove the back panel when it's making the noise and see if you have a frost/ice issue and if so you may need to replace a defrost sensor since it's intermittent. Otherwise if there is no frost or ice issue, replace the evaporator fan motor. That fan circulates air to the refrigerator section so if it isn't working or too much frost has built up, the unit won't circulate air to the refrigerator section properly.
