What is the evaporator


The evaporator is the part of the fridge that gets cold, more correctly it removes heat. It is usually located in the freezer and a fan motor, evaporator fan, move air thru the evaporator to cool both the fridge and the freezer. Some units have two evaporators, one for the fridge and one for the freezer.

REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER NOT GETTING COLD. ERROR CODE 5Y.MODEL NUMBER LGUS2642LF2 SERIAL NUMBER 4A23305873


That error code is "SY" and not "5Y" and it is for the evaporator sensor error. You will need to replace the sensor.Here is the part to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.



Access the evaporator assembly cover in the rear of the freezer section. In convertible units that can function either as refrigerators or freezers, and is located toward the bottom of the unit on the inner back wall -- if necessary, remove the two lower glass shelves and the crisper compartments.

Remove the screws securing the evaporator cover to the freezer wall, using a Phillips screwdriver.

Pull the evaporator cover away from the wall just enough to access the electrical connection behind the cover. Be careful not to damage the gaskets on either side of the evaporator cover. Reach behind the cover and disconnect the electrical connection from its wiring harness. Remove the evaporator cover from the freezer.

Remove the wires inside the exposed evaporator assembly from their retaining clips, then squeeze the quick-connect mechanism to detach the wires from the fan motor.

Remove the two hex-head screws that hold the fan motor mounting bracket to the back wall of the unit, using a 5/16-inch socket or nut driver.

Remove the two hex-head screws holding the fan motor to the mounting bracket, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver, then pull the fan blade off the motor shaft.

Examine the fan to make sure the blades are not damaged; if necessary, replace the fan itself as well as the motor. Slide the fan onto the motor shaft.

Attach the new motor to the mounting bracket, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver to secure the two hex-head screws.

Replace and tighten the two hex-head screws that hold the fan motor mounting bracket to the back wall of the unit, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver.

Reattach the the fan motor wires by clipping them back into the quick-connect mechanism, and set the wires back into their retaining clips in the same manner as they were attached.

Set the evaporator assembly cover back into place, then reach behind and connect the electrical connection into the wiring harness.

Secure the Phillips screws that hold the evaporator cover to the freezer wall.

Replace the shelves and crisper compartments if they were removed, then plug the refrigerator into its power source and verify proper operation.

Whirlpool fridge quit cooling


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?

Kenmore refrigerator model 59562998 Compressor is running but no air is blowing into the refrigerator or freezer


the evaporator fan has stopped. it is usually in the back of the freezing compartment behind all the plastic. when the fan stops no air can circulate over the cooling coils so even though the compressor is running no cold can move iside the freezer or fridge. be extra careful when you take the small screws out as the screw heads can be full of build up that makes it hard to get a good hold of them. take your time and clean off all the screw heads so they don't strip out. The evaporator fan is not to expensive wait to buy on until you get the old one out.

Unusual noise and ice all over the freezer


This sounds like the fan is hitting the ice. If it's iced up, remove the food from the freezer and place in refrigerator.

Take the bottom panel out of the inside of the freezer section and then remove the back panel from inside the freezer section. You will then be able to see the evaporator fan. You will need to check to see if the evaporator fan will turn with the power of the refrigerator turned on.

You also want to look to see if the evaporator fan is turning and hitting ice which means the evaporator is froze up. You will need to check and see if the evaporator fan is bad or the defrost timer is bad.
