I have a side by side whirlpool fridge and the freezer is fine but the fridge is now freezing everything. It's about 11 years old.


Since you stand to loose all the food I would call a service tech ASAP. But here are the most common reasons for the problem you have.
Cause 1
The Evaporator Coils are Frosted Over The defrost heater assembly turns on a few times throughout the day to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the evaporator coils. If the defrost heater assembly is defective, frost will continue to accumulate on the evaporator coils, and the coils will become plugged with frost. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, the airflow through the coils will be restricted, causing the refrigerator not to cool. Check the evaporator coils to determine if they are frosted over. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, test each component of the defrost system.
Cause 2
Evaporator Fan Motor The evaporator fan motor draws cold air over the evaporator coils and circulates it throughout the freezer. If the evaporator fan is not working, the freezer or refrigerator will not cool adequately. 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..
Cause 3
Damper Control Assembly The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If the damper does not open properly, it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. Check the damper control to determine if it is broken or stuck closed.

I WANT TO KNOW THAT HOW TO TEST THIS FAN UDQT26GE4


What is the model number of the refrigerator? I usually look at both sides of the control board for heat damage but many time if the fan is bad the board is bad also. The fan is cheap enough to replace but like I said the mother board could be the whose problem. There are some test points on the board but I need the model number of the fridge to provide that information

After power outage the fridge was displaying codes SY and EF I have Frigidaire model number FGHS2365KF1. Any thoughts?????


Hi.

SY: Defective evaporator system. Check evaporator fan, thermostat and heater.

EF: Evaporator Fan defective. Test and eventually replace the evaporator fan.

The problem is likely the evaporator fan. Before replacing the fan test the other parts comprised in the evaporator system.

Here a tip explaining how to test such parts with a similar fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is more or less the same with your model.

Here parts and diagrams for your model.

Generally you can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:
Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

I am looking for a way to test my GE Arctica Refrigerator Fan Motor & if need be my Electronic Board that sends power to this fan, how do I find a Wiring Drawing that say's what these 4 wires -...


The Red wire is positive around 13.5 VDC
The White wire is the negative
The yellow should also be Positive around 13.5 VDC
The blue wire should also be around 13.5 VDC

Check Connector #2 on the main board for voltage.
on all those connectors. ignore the blue/blk.
To get the fan working the red and white MUST be connected and have voltage., if the yellow does not have 13.5 dc the fan will not work. the fan will work even if it's not connected.
So, The RED and WHITE wires always have voltage. jump the yellow to red and the fan WILL work. either inside the fridge or on the board. if you jump it, remember to disconnect the yellow from the board.
You can also check the fan with external voltage outside of the fridge with a small 12vdc transformer. RED and Yellow to Positive. White to negative.
The fan rarely goes bad. It usually starts humming before it goes bad(for weeks). U might change the fan, the board and not fix it. There might be a simple short from the board to the fridge connector.

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.

Evaporator fan did not start running when condenser fan started.


I don't know why there would be much of a delay between the condenser and evaporator fans coming on. If you have diagnosed it as a bad motor, that's probably correct.

But the motor could just need cleaning and lubricating

Only the fan at the compressor turns on and off with the compressor cycle. The evaporator fan runs steady to maintain air circulation and temperature balance and to affect evaporator defrost in the off cycle. Sometimes the condenser fan will run continuously to assist in the evaporation of condensed moisture from the evaporator drainage.
