    I have the same problem. I have access to the fan, and the fan is working. But, seems like something keep shutting off electric to the fan so it doesdn't stay on to keep the fridge cool. Were you able to fix your fan problem. Would appreciate any hint as it's day before Thanksgiving.

Speaking from memory: remove the middle translucent section held by one screw at top and clips. you will then see the additional screws you need to undo

Posted on May 07, 2007


The fan cover is held in place by the lighting assembly above, so you need to take absolutely everything out before starting. Remove the single screw at the top of the translucent light cover and unclip the cover. Remove the 3 screws now visible. Undo the crome bezel & remove the screw beneath. Unplug the temp sensor/fridge light connectors. Remove the lighting assembly. Unclip the deodoriser compartments & remove the screws. Undo the 2 screws holding the water tank. Undo the 2 screws at the very bottom of the fan cover whicg should now be accessible. The fan and cover can now be teased out. The sealing strip around the bottom can be a bit sticky. I discovered an inch thick layer of ice blocking the fan circulation - apparently the drain hole is too small, but easily adjusted in the polystyrene.

The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem

You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.
