Where is the evaporator fan motor? My Freezer and fridge would quit cooling/freezing. I took the back panel off in the freezer a week ago and the evaporator coils were completely frozen over with ice. I...

I do not believe the problem is the fan. sounds like the frig. is low on Freon this is what will cause the ice build up. you need to find the leak, you can do this by spraying soapy water on coil tubes & watch for bubbles. repair leak & recharge.

Have a scottsmanicemachine doesnt drop ice compressor on water on water runs on coils goes to harvest but makes no ice coil usualy have a ice buildup before it harves

The water runs over the evaporator coil(plate) until the ice gets thick enough, than when the ices touches a switch for the thickness you have it set for, it to go into harvest and the hot gas from the liquid line goes through the evaporator making the ice fall. If you are not making ice, it is the refrigeration system not working, so check the refrigerant, compressor etc like you would on any refrigerator or freezer

I have a hoover 505 upside down fridge, it has the motor constantly running and the fridge is not getting cold

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Open the freezer and locate the door / light switch. Depress the light switch plunger / actuator and make sure the light goes off and the evaporator fan comes ON. Light stays on and fan does not run = bad door switch.
Next look for signs of ice build up on the back access panel / evaporator coils. Ice block noted on coils and back access panel = evaporator fan problem or possible door switch problem.
Last open the fiberboard cover on the back of the unit and check for massive amounts of lint on the condenser coils and that the condenser fan is running. Blocked condenser coils or condenser fan not running will cause the chassis to be very warm to hot when touched.

If you do not find anything wrong by performing the steps above:
  • Unplug the unit
  • Remove freezer contents
  • Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours (manual defrost)
  • Tend to the water mess as needed
  • After 2 hours wipe up any residual water and return the unit to normal service
  • Check to see that the evaporator fan is running.
After a 2- 4 days look again for any signs of ice build up on the evaporator coils. If you note ice beginning to build up on the evaporator coils there is a problem with the automatic defrost circuit.
Possible automatic defrost failure causes:
1. Defrost Control
2. Defrost heater
3. Thermistor (if so equipped)
4. Defrost thermostat

That is pretty much it runs all the time but does not cool troubleshooting. You should find something out of the ordinary by following the steps above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Frig leaking from the bottom, a slow leak.

Most likely defrost water not evaporating and running over drip pan onto lloor.

Check the bottom coils... Dirty coils can block air flow and prevent defrost water evaporation. Also check fan. Air pulled across defrost water evaporates it. If fan is not running, refrigerator will also be inefficient, as refrigerant condenser needs air flow over the coils to work properly.

Freezer not cooling, food is defrosting, model# 28042 sears ask me to clean off the coil where is the cooling coil located

To answere your question : The cooling coil is called the evaporator and is located behind the backwall of the freezer.....But this is not what they want you to clean. They want you to clean the condenser coil, witch is either the big black coils on the back of the unit or they are located under the unit.

you might also make sure you here the fan inside the freezer. open the door and press the door switch and see if you here the fan running. if you don't, then you might have a evaperator fan motor that is bad.

The next thing you shoud check is the back wall of the freezer have frost or did it have frost on it. if it did you have a defrost problem.

This is where you should start. There are many other things that could be rong.

Motor runs fan works does not produce water and black tank in back (compressor?) is very hot

Make sure that the coils of the evaporator are clean, and that the unit is getting proper airflow across the evaporator and condenser coils. Hope this helps

Does not dehumidify

Hello. I am here to help. Let me begin by saying that a dehumidifier only needs to be operated if the humidity in your home is too high. If the humidity is low, the humidifier will have to work really hard to try and remove water from it.

Here is an overview of how the dehumidifier is supposed to work:

When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.

Food and water freezes but ice cream is soft

Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

Used older refridgerator not getting real cold; styrofoam coils

the evaporator coils should be on the inside of the freezer/fridge,the outside coil is your condenser coil and the air needs to be able to move freely through it for it to work properly.there may also be an auxiliary set of coils that sit in the water run over pan that helps evaporate the runoff,this run off also helps the frig work better by cooling the condenser.this set of coils may or may not have air flow usually not.If it is blowing cool air give it time sometimes a old machine needs to run for a while before it starts to work .
