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

My Samsung RS21DPSM is not freezing, the fridge is working and the fan in the fridge is not loud. The freezer is not freezing.


Check the condenser fan in the compressor department. The fan motor is know to fail. The refrigerator and freezer temps will be cool but not cold. I would start there.

Daewoo FRN-U20IA top of freezer compartment won't freeze


It was the fan at the top of the freezer that had stopped working after 3 years, therefore the freezing air wasn't getting to the top of the freezer. From the inside, unscrew light unit and unclip, pop out two circular discs at top and unscrew one screw. Unscrew 2 more screws and prise the back panel off. (Arrows mark the clips). Pull off fan, take out motor, replace (keeping rubber bits) and push back fan with a bit of nail varnish on spindle. Put everything back together. Turn on, depress door light switch and after 30 seconds fan should rotate. You can buy a fan on eBay or from www.4daewoo.co.uk for about 40 pounds.

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.

Top half does not freeze


There is a fan behind the back wall of the freezer about 1/2 way up from the bottom, you should be able to hear this running when the freezer is on. If you do not hear this then you need a new evaporator fan motor.

If you hear the fan run then you most likely have a problem with the automatic defrost cycle that would most likely be the heat element that is located just below the coils inside the freezer behind the panel.

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
