My figidaire freezer fans runs almost all the time

Your problem could be as simple as dirty condenser coils or a burned out condenser fan. These components are on the bottom of the refrigerator and removing a couple of panels should give you access to them. Clean dust and dirt off the coils and check to see if the bottom fan is running when the refrigerator is running.

You'd be surprised how often this simple fix will get you back up and running. Dirty coils make the refrigerant system VERY inefficient, sometimes to the point that the refrigerator has to run almost constantly to acheive the desire temperatures inside the refrigerator.

Desktop computer fan runs constantly


Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.

The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.

To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.

You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.

To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.

Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.

Inside fan never shuts off. Freezes fine.

The fan is controlled by the by the electronic control located in the back by the compressor.

If the fan is running all the time there is something we need to determine before replacing parts.

Is the compressor also running all the time? The inside fan should run at the same time as the compressor, if they are both running then check and clean the coils behind the freezer. If they are clean and both running then check the door seal to make sure it is not broken or torn. If all these are okay then the compressor is just wearing out and getting inefficient.

If the compressor is not running and the inside fan is running the problem is within the control board down by the compressor, this is a replace only component and runs about $180.00

Do I need a new fan blade if I replace the fan or will the old one go back on fairly easy? Ecoquest fresh air

If you need to replace the fan motor, the fan blade can be removed by grasphing the center hub of the fan and pull the fan straight out of the purifier. I remove it every time I clean my machine, since it easy to clean it once it is removed.

Unit never seems to stop running, always running

There are several things that could cause this issue. If you have a condenser fan underneath the fridg that has stopped running due to poor lubrication, maybe debris blocking the fan blades or a dirty condenser especially if you have pets. You can clean the **** from under the fridg (remove the grill on the front and vacuum out) or if the fan is not running with the compressor as it should repair or replace it the fan motor. Also a worn out door gasket can cause excess run time.
