Question about Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Welcome to Fixya.
Before testing the fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer.
The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver.
Remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can access the fan's wiring. Typically two screws secure the mounting bracket in place (labeled "A" below). It may be easier to remove the entire rear panel if the mounting brackets screws are inaccessible.
The fan is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the fan before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the fan with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connector off (do not pull on the wire) of the fan's terminal. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Spin the fan blade, it should move smoothly and freely. If the movement is not smooth, the motor should be replaced.
Test the fan for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the fan does not pass this test, it should be replaced.
