Either drain is plugged up and water backs up and blocks fan rotation, or fan itself is bad and quitting occassionally. gently remove interior panels to access fan. is it running? if no check for 120 volts to it, usually there is a plug. got volts but no fan, fan is bad. if water backs up and is blocking fan you gently use hot water and shop vac to clean little drain hole in back bottom behind or near fan till you can blow easily through it with a short piece of hose over the hole. once clear the water can drain down toi the condensate pan by compressor and evaporate. these little fans are fairly cheap and come like a little module. be sure to observe the rotation and location of fan blade on the motor shaft . reuse the same blade unless it is loose . if replaced get same number of blades, rotation, pitch and diamater. usually they press on and off firmly with fingers.note how much blade protrudes beyond the shroud for location. not to far out or to close the the motor. good luck

Side by side refrigerator


produce freezes at 35 f also make sure you fan in your freezer is working. when you hear the fridge running open the freezer door and see if fan is running. if not replace the fan or call for service. if your fan is running adjust the temps to a 37 for fridge and 0 for freezer.

Freezer is freezing up after 3 or 4 days. Fridge


the freezer fan should be running not pulsating, I would have to say thats your problem since most systems can run 3-4 days with out proper air flow, most wont survive much longer
go to www.appliancepartspros.com
type in your model number
look in the freezer section
order anew fan motor

the picture should show you haow to break it down to get it out

Freezer not freezing and fridge not cooling


Check the back wall of the freezer for ice buildup.
If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.
If compressor is not hot.
Replace the compressor start relay.

Freezer freezes, fridge below will not cool


if your freezer is still freezing fine, except for perhaps a slight softening of ice cream. this is a good sign. the second fan you are looking for is located behind the back wall of the freezer, emptying the freezer will gain you access to the screws to remove he panel. you should be able to hear the fan blowing when the freezer door is opened.if indeed the fan is blowing you may have frost building up on the rear panel, this would indicate a defrost problem( unit not self defrosting) and so much frost has built up that the air flow has been restricted to the refrig compartment

Fan is a big issue. New problem though.


good day!first and foremost, in most freezers, the highest freezing point is 7.in regards with the water dripping from the air vent hole, you have to minimize your your freezing setting to the middle.turn it to 3 or 4 freezing point.
