Evaporator fan new but not working on samsung rs267lash
I own a Samsung refrigerator model # rs267lash. I have replaced the control board, condensor fan motor and evaporator motor, but the freezer evaporator motor is not working. Does anyone have a solution for me, or know if there is a relay that needs to be replaced?
Re: Evaporator fan new but not working on samsung...
Manny MANY unfortunate customers who bought this **** from Samsung have problem. Specifically the Freezer cold but fridge side no lower than 55deg problem.
It is a known defect that Samsung has not taken ownership
I have the same problem with the same model as many.. if you search the

1-The condenser coils are usually located under the refrigerator. They dissipate heat as refrigerant passes through them. If the condenser coils are dirty, they won't dissipate the heat effectively. As debris builds up on the coils, the refrigerator becomes less efficient, causing the refrigerator to work harder to cool down. If the coils are significantly dirty, the refrigerator will not be able to maintain the proper temperature. Check the condenser coils to determine if they are dirty-if the condenser coils are dirty, clean them.
2-The evaporator fan motor draws air over the evaporator (cooling) coils and circulates it throughout the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Some refrigerators have more than one evaporator fan motor. On refrigerators with only one evaporator, the evaporator is located in the freezer compartment. If the evaporator fan is not working, it will not circulate the cold air to the refrigerator compartment. If this occurs, the freezer may still get cold, while the refrigerator will not get cold. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor.
Condenser Coils are Dirty
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the condenser coils may be dirty. The condenser is like a radiator and must stay clean in order to dissipate the heat which was removed from the inside of the refrigerator. As the coils get dirtier the refrigerator becomes less efficient, which makes it work harder to cool down. If the coils are dirty enough, the unit will never be cold enough and will not be able to cool the inside of the refrigerator to the proper temperature.
Evaporator Fan Motor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the evaporator fan motor might have failed. Every refrigerator has a set of coils called an evaporator. The refrigerator may have one or more evaporator fan motor(s) depending on the model and evaporator locations. The evaporator fan motor circulates the cold air from the coils thru the compartment. If there is only one evaporator it is in the freezer side. If the fan is not working, no cold air will get to the refrigerator compartment. The freezer may still get cold.
Condenser Fan Motor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough there might be something caught in the condenser fan motor blade, or the condenser fan motor might be defective. The condenser fan motor draws air over the condenser coils to cool them. The condenser fan motor is located underneath the refrigerator near the back. Pull the refrigerator out from the wall and remove the access panel to access it.
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the start relay may be defective. The start relay is a small device mounted to the side of the compressor. It provides power to the run winding along with the start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor started. If the start relay is defective the compressor may run intermittently or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. The start relay should be replaced if defective.
Temperature Control Thermostat
If the refrigerator does not get cold enough the temperature control thermostat might be defective. The thermostat allows power to flow through to the compressor, evaporator fan and condenser fan. If the cooling system fans and compressor are running, but the refrigerator or freezer is not cooling correctly check for an airflow or defrost system problem.
If the refrigerator isn't cold enough the compressor might be having difficulty starting. The start capacitor serves as a battery to give the compressor a little boost during start-up. If the start capacitor is burned out the compressor might not be able to start and run as often as it should. Test the start capacitor first with a capacitance meter, they don't fail often. If it's defective, replace it.
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the thermistor might be defective. The thermistor is a sensor which monitors the air temperature. It is connected to the control board. If the thermistor is defective the refrigerator does not cool or may cool continuously.
Temperature Control Board
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the temperature control board might be defective. The temperature control board provides the voltage to the fan motors and compressor. These boards are often misdiagnosed. Check all other components to be certain this is the cause of the problem.
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the compressor might be defective. The compressor is a motor which compresses the refrigerant and circulates the refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. There are several other components which are more likely to be defective if the compressor doesn't work. If the compressor itself is defective a licensed professional will need to replace it.
Main Control Board
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check the defrost system, cooling fans, and cooling controls first.
This error is a SY EF (system evaporator fault). The evaporator sensor is not reading enough air flow through the system. The problem could be the evaporator sensor or the evaporator motor.
It can also be linked to a faulty control board. To rule out a problem between the fan and the control board, you can check for 12V DC between the brown and the red wires. You can also check for voltage variations between the yellow and brown wires. (This voltage will depend on if the fan is on high or low speed.) If the voltages are good, replace the motor. If the voltages are faulty, replace the control board.
If you can hear the evaporator running and feel air moving in the freezer, the sensor is more likely to be faulty. (The evaporator is inside the freezer at the back.)
This problem could be caused by the
motherboard having defective relays, bad fan motor=> DA31-00103A Fan MotorSounds like
someone will need to examine the fan motor and test the voltage to the fans
inside and outside the refrigerator. You will need to have this done to eliminate
what the cause is. Both condensor and evaporator fan motors are the same part=> DA31-00103A Fan MotorLet me know and I will explain how to remove, test or replace the
freezer/evaporator fan motor, wiring or motherboart. Thanks Sea Breeze
Was the motherboard replaced because the temp was too high? May be the condenser fan was at fault all the time. Check you have power at the fan. If you have, replace the fan. If you have not, take a live from the compressor to the fan. This will bypass any hp or fan speed control switch and run the condenser fan with the compressor.
Check the temperature setting Assure that there is enough room for air flow in the freezer or freezer Check for air flow restrictions in vents Test the temperature control Clean the condensor coils Check the door seals Test the door switch Test defrost heater Test defrost timer Test evaporator fan Check for a clogged drain tube Check for refrigerant leak Freezer is too cold
Check the temperature setting Test the temperature control Freezer is noisy
Hissing and popping is normal, it is the defrost heater. Check that the freezer is level Check the drain pan Check the condensor fan Check the evaporator fan Inspect the compressor mounts Freezer runs continuously
Defrost the freezer Clean the condensor coils Check the door seals Freezer starts and stops frequently
Clean the condensor coils Check the outlet voltage Test the condensor fan Test the compressor relay Test the overload protector Test the compressor motor Freezer does not defrost automatically
Test the defrost timer Test the defrost heater Test the defrost thermostat Freezer has an unpleasant odor
Remove spoiled food Clean freezer interior with a solution of h Clean freezer interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda Clean the door seals Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation Water on floor outside of freezer
Check the drain pan If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve Water inside the freezer
Check for a clogged drain tube If you have an ice-maker, check freezer and ice-maker for level
You can fix this by yourself and do take care in solving the problem......
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.
you can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.---------
the motherboard located behind a cover panel in the upper left hand corner of the unit is defective,it powers all aspects of the unit and is very sensitive to power surges,outages,blackouts,spikes,etc,you will need to replace it as there is no repairable parts to it,G.E, part # (WR55X10942) just unplug the unit,remove the cover,remove all harnesses to the board and replace(CAUTION) be sure to check both condensor and evaporator fan motors before replacing this board,because if one of these fan motors is bad,the new board will be destroyed immediately!!!
