when you adjust the tempreture dial for the refrigerator this would turn on the evaporator fan motor located behind the rear wall of the freezer click this link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/00052094-00007.png part number 17 on the schematic would be the panel that you would remove when you remove this panel this would give you access to the evaporator coil as well as the evaporator fan motor if the fan is not spinning then you would replace the evaporator fan motor. If you see any ice build up on the evaporator coil or the fan motor or blocking the drain located under the evaporator coil this is termed as a defrost issue. If you find this then message me back and I will give further instruction on how to diagnose why your unit is haveing a defrost issue. The freezer is the only area that produces cold in a refrigerator. The evaporator fan motor blows the cold air through a small damper door that opens and closes depending on the tempreture inside the refrigerator. The first thing to check is the fan motor that is behind the panel that I mentioned. If you remove the panel and find that the fan is blowing and spinning message me back for further diagnosis. I await your reply Thank you Rick P.s what is the tempreture inside the freezer currently?
The code "E - F" is related to evaporator fan motor.
You have a bad evap fan. This is the fan that is behind the back panel INSIDE the freezer. -------------
This code is for the evaporator fan motor but it could also be due to a defective main board. If the fan motor in the freezer is still running, disconnect power to the refrigerator for 30 seconds and then reconnect it. This resets the board. If the code disappears and the motor is still running, it may be ok now but if the code reappears, the board will need to be replaced.If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made at the motor and at the board.------------The EF error code indicates a problem has been detected with the freezer fan motor (evaporator fan). This type of symptom could be caused by the fan motor stalled out on some type of obstruction, defective fan motor, faulty wiring or the main control board.

Most all commercial freezers like yours have, what is called, a fan delay. It is located in the evaporator case and is usually attached on or very close to the actual cooling coil. It may also be a combination switch known as a defrost terminator/ fan delay. It's purpose is to keep from circulating warm air. If the cooling coil does not reach a preset temp, the fans do not come one. Another thing is that the fan motor may just be bad. If you have more than one fan, then chances are that it's going to be the fan delay. I would start there to see that either the fan delay switch is bad or there is a reason that the coil is not getting cold enough to activate the switch.
1)check the temperature setting.it should be set on normal mode.
2) check if the ventilation in the fridge are blocked .there are two possibilities you will have to check
1)the defrost timer
2)the evaporator coil.
How a common frost free defrost cycle works and the main parts.When the refrigerator is running ( cooling mode ) the defrost timer contacts prevents any power from getting to the defrost heater. When the defrost timer turns off the power to the compressor and fan motor(s) the power is then redirected to the defrost system. The defrost timer motor.Defrost timers: The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor. The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector. Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode. *Some defrost timers are a constant or continuous run timer, which means when ever the refrigerator is plugged in the defrost timer is powered up and running. Some defrost timers are an accumulative run timer, which means when the refrigerator is off the defrost timer is off and not running, when the refrigerator is running the defrost timer is running. This is also sometimes called a demand defrost. The power for the defrost timer goes through the cold control first on an accumulative defrost system. The timers are often the same but will be wired differently to get the different operations. ------ the evaporator coils are located at the inner side of the freezer section.if the ice gets collected in the coil and the evaporator fan stops running then the inner system of refrigerator will get over cool and this problem happens. -------- now to solve the issue .if to check evaporator coil is faulty or not there is a system.just unplug the unit from main power outlet then wait for 24 hours.then replug the power cord in the main power outlet.in 24 hours all the ice collected in between the coil and anywhere will get melted and then check out.if it works properly the problem was ice in coils.but if same problem then defrost timer needs replacement,you can get new timer friom --- www.repairclinic.com --------
This will help. Thanks please keep
updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
Replace the fan motor AND blade . ( evaporator fan motor ) . This motor is located inside the freezer , behind the rear panel . The switch , is a fan/light switch , when closed , turns on fan , and light off . When open , light on , and fan off . normal operation .
It's located in the freezer compartment . May have to remove all panels , including the icemaker , to install it . If the fan isn't working though , the problem is probably the main control board , located behind an 8 " X 10" panel , on the back of the refrig . Usually , a resistor burns out and the freezer fan stops working .
Hi, The evaporator fan motor is located behind the inside rear panel of the freezer section. Remove the screws in the panel and the panel should lift out. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Evaporator fan motor is located in the freezer compartment behind the back wall. To access it you must remove the shelves and the back wall which is held in place by screws. Then you can remove the old fan motor and install a new one in the reverse order that you used to remove the old motor.
