Re: evaporator fan

These can be easily fixed. Take the back cover out of the freezer and tap on the fan shaft (you wont hurt it) and squirt a dab or two of oil on the shaft next to the motor. If it loosens up let it run for a few hours and reoil. If its frozen up totally and you cant turn it at all then the motor needs to be replaced. Let me know :-)

Working but extremely noisy freezer

most likely noise is coming from evaporator fan motor.go here,it will show you the parts in your model,
unplug the freezer,remove shelves and remove back inside wall to get at the fan might see yellow stains around motor area,that's from the oil that leaked out of fan motor,also if noise stops and you notice that the freezer is cold on bottom and warm on top the fan motor died and needs to be replaced right away.hope this helps and you should change the motor out before you loose any food.

if you can; find the vent(s) between the top and, bottom boxes (where the evaporator fan is located: closing these vents makes the freezer colder and, the refrigerator warmer, opening these vents the reverse is true.

Freezer on bottom is cold,refrigerator on top is warm. 2 days before failure there was a vibration noise intermittently between fridge and freezer that stoppped if freezer door was shut hard

This is a little strange to hear but something caused the vibration. Closing the doors hard or soft may make big changes in sound because of pressure change. I just want to know if the compressor is purring away without overheating. Anytime there is a restriction in ventilation the evaporator fan will struggle to push the air to the freezer and enough to refrigerator side to maintain safe temperatures. On the bottom even if the fan stopped the bottom would work because it is below and cold is heavier than warm. I will look over your parts breakdown to see what vent, dampers or fans that may cause this, work with me on this and I will help you solve this. Thanks Sea Breeze

The top of the freezer part is getting cold but the bottom of the Refrigerator part is not getting cold. The Refrigerator is only 10-11 months old ; what is wrong?

you need to check and see if the fan in the back of the freezer compartment is running. when the fan is not running the cold air will not be passed to the refrigerator compartment. open the freezer door and turn the unit to its coldest setting until the compressor kicks in then listen to hear the fan in the freezer compartment.

Fridge warm at top cold at bottom

If the fan is no coming on inside the freezer this will need to be fixed soon. Both fans upper and lower must run while compressor runs. Inside the fresh food compartment close the damper on bottom left side next to the paned drawer. If this does not help send more cold air to the top let me know as there could be something else causing the dampers not to open and close properly.
Thanks, Sea Breeze
