Check and make sure the other two connections are solid.sometimes when the fan gets unplugged, the terminal gets loose and looses connection where it is soldered into the fan motor. Some models need to be a certain temperature in order for the fan to work. You can check voltage to the fan also. There should be 120V to the fan. Makes sure the fan/light switch is pushed in (on some models). If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Many evaporator fans are thermostatically controled and will not restart until the evaporaator temperature reaches 22 deg. how long has it been running since you replaced it?

Help reconnecting Acceler-ice 3xi icemaker in Kenmore Elite 106.74206400


if the wire is green i would suspect it to be a safety ground yo attach where the fan mount attaches to the body of the refrigerator. this is assuming the original fan only had a two wire hookup. Ed

Frigidaire GLRS264ZA refrigerator keeps blowing GFI circuit


The fan and defrost heater are run off the same relay on the board. When on defrost, the fan stops. when the fan starts, the defrost heater is switched off, Sounds like the neutral to the board may be shorting. If you have the ability, try powering the evaporator fan from the compressor relay, disconnecting from the board entirely. To see if this will work, just take a temporary wire to the fan when disconnected and see if it trips while running.

Ammana Fridge-Evaporator Fan not working


Replace the defrost bimetal . On older Amanas' , the coil has to be cold , before the evaporator fan starts ( bimetal closes ) . This way , heat from the defrost cycle , will not be blown into the refrig section .

Compressor in fridge not working. Freezer is working fine. Is there a reset button? What steps can I take to see if this is a simple issue?


There is one compressor that serves both the freezer and refridgerator compartments. You need to confirm if the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment is working. When you open the door to the freezer, you should see and hear the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment running. Particularly if there is a demand on the unit through the thermostat setting. If the evaporator fan is not operating, you can check the evaporator fan motor with a volt meter to see if it's getting power. If its getting voltage, but not operating, you need to replace the evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment. There are 3 wires that attach to the evaporator fan motor. One hot wire, one neutral wire and one ground wire. The ground wire is usually marked green, the voltage wire is usually marked black and the common wire is usually marked white. You should get a reading on your volt meter of a voltage from the hot post to the neutral or from the hot to the ground. If it is getting power but will not operate, then it is definitely a bad fan motor that would need to be replaced.

Refrigerator trips GFI outlet


unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc
