Question about Refrigerators
1998 GE Bottom Freezer Fridge, model # TCX18. About once a month ice builds up in the air circulation void and eventually plugs up and falls into the evapourator fan and makes a clinking noise. After enough build up of ice it eventually falls into the fan and if it is not deiced the fan will actually stop. The tech has been out twice to check it and both times the 'fix' didn't work. There are no clogs or blockages and all line are clean. PLEASE HELP!
SOURCE: fan in freezer - evaporator fan?
HI. thanks for the question. yes the fan in the freezer must be replaced.and also the drain tube in the freezer, is clogged. cut power to the fridge. remove back panel . replace the fan motor . also clean ice build up. clean drain tube, from freezer to the drain tray, at the back, near the compressor. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks

you need a drain tube heater.it is like a chain fence tie made from alluminum,you can actually use the fence ties,wrap one side around defrost heater and stick the other side in drain.that will prevent it from happening again
