Re: NEW FAN WILL NOT QUIT RUNNING
How long did you wait after installing the fan? It takes 24 hours for the unit to recuperate.
If the fan hasn't been working for a long time, you may have not noticed it was running a lot, but with the new fan you can hear it. Let me know if you don't think this is the case and I can guide you through some other options.

The common reason for this is the fan motor behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment is not running.
With the machine on and running, open the freezer door. You should hear the fan running.
If not the motor can be accessed by removing the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Replacement is a nuts and bolts operation.
first defrost it by turning it off for 1\2 to 1 full day,put towels on the floor to catch the water,when a refridgerator gets frosted up it cant circulate the cold air,and if its one with the freezer on top then the cold air cant blow down into the refridgerator,check inside the refridgerator at the top where the thermostat cover is there will be a vent hole,it could have ice built up so much that its totally blocking the air flow.This usually happens when hot food is put in the refridgerator and causes steam,or the refridgerator runs too much caused by bad door seals,or the cooling fins on the back or bottom underneath plugged with dust and the freon gets too hot causing condensation inside the freezer which causes it to frost up,a plugged drain hole will back up water and freeze,the fan in the freezer may have stopped working,which is about a $60.00 part,and finally a bad defrost element (about a $40.00 part)which is a glass tube inside the freezer with a coiled up wire inside it that heats up at certain times to defrost any ice build up,(which is the last thing to check)
sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold
Check to see if the refrigerator is clean at the condensor at the bottom or at the top of the unit. All fans running inside and outside the unit? Door gaskets sealing tightly. Put a dollar bill between the door gasket and cabinet and clost the door. Slight drag ok. No rsistane, bad gasket. No solution at this point, call for service.
my refridgerator seems to be workin the freezer is getting cold but not freezing its a top freezer bottom refridgerator the fan in the freezer is also not workin.i had atec come out to check it out. supposedly theres a capasitor that sits next to the compressor that he told me was bad an had to be ordered.its got 2 wires that come off the compressor that plug into this lil box.my question is could this be why my freezer is not freezing an also why the fan inside the freezer is not workin?
