The fan is remaining on all the time because the temperatures can not be satisfied. You have three things that can cause this and they are number 1 The defrost time, second the defrost element and the last is the defrost thermostat. Now I can help you do the test if you like. The defrost timer part number is 63001353 And in photo below you will see it located in the fresh food section and behind the plastic cover on the control panel. There is a small opening the size of a pencil eraser through the plastic cover you can stick a flat head screwdriver through to slowly turn clockwise until compressor stops. The compressor should remain off for about 25 minutes. During that time you can open the freezer door and possibly hear a crackling or or a sizzle noise of the defrost taking place. If the timer does not turn the refrigerator compressor back on after about 30 minutes you an turn it again slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. If you need to do this action the defrost timer is the reason and will need to be replaced. Let me know if this is helpful or ask bo60 or myself to answer your questions. We are here to get you fixed. So please respond to what happened when you tested the defrost timer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fan usually keeps running when cooling is not satisfying. Check to see if the freezer is icing up at the back. If iced is built up, manually turn the timer and see if this activates and starts the defrost mode. If defrost cycle starts, then the timer is bad. If defrost does not start then it coud be the thermostat or element.

I have a fisher & paykel active smart fridge the fridge part freezes everything and wont stop beeping when door open


Your fridge is telling you there is a fault, i'd say one of the 2 fans are not working. If everything is freezing in the bottom of the food compartment then the upper fan is faulty. You have to remove the shelves & remove the rear panel, the fan is in the shute at the bottom, remove, repair the broken wire or replace. Make sure unit is unpluged.

Freeze and ice maker quit making ice and prevent it to keep food frozen


Here is the basic idea on how to keep the refrigerator, air conditioner, or vacuum cleaner to work properly. Air is moved by an electric fan or blower in order for that product to work properly. If air movement is blocked the fridge won't get cold, the central air conditioner won't cool enough, the vacume cleaner won't clean as well. Check on your fridge's air movement by inspecting the bottom of the fridge for dust and cob webs. Remove the front bottom clip-on plastic grill. Or also even access the lower back of the fridge by removeing the screws holding up the heavy cardboard cover to see inside. Blockage of air flow will prevent a fridge from getting cold. Just like a vacuum cleaner stops working when the bag is filled with dust and fibers. The air could be blocked by the accumulation of dust and fibers. Look under your fridge if it is cloged, it will look just like the stuff on a dirty central air filter.

Dust and fiber buildup blocking the fridge's air movement from back to front (or visa-versa) of your fridge will slowly (years) prevent how good it cools. The build-up of dust and cobwebs prevents your fridge from cooling (more specifically prevents the heat to disapate from the metal heat disipating fins attached to the metal tubes to be blown off by the fans air). OK! Remedy for a vacuum cleaner REPLACE THE CLOGED VACUUM BAG.

Remedy for your fridge manually REMOVE THE CLOGING DUST AND FIBERS FROM UNDER YOUR FRIDGE. SORRY fridge manufacturers do not provide a dust filter like the vacume cleaner and central air systems manufacturers do. You have to figger out the best way you can clean it. Possibly vacuum with a crevice tool, or use a small brush than vacuum. The extreme would be unplug the fridge ( so you won't get electrocuted) bring a water hose into the kitchen and spray water at cobweb buildup at the bottom fridge, than wet vac the floor then wait 20 minutes to dry before pluging the fridge back into the electric outlet.
When you stand in front of your fridge and you hear the fridge electric motor turn on, the fan will blow air out the bottom.The fridge

FREEZER IS COLD BUT NOT FREEZING WELL,FRIDGE IS NOT AS COLD AS IT SHOULD BE


Your freezer fan has stopped working or jammed. It's also possible that your defrost timer has stopped working and that the airways in the freezer are clogged with ice and the air can't circulate to the fridge. One of the two. Good Luck!!

Viking Imperial Fridge... Purchased in early 90's


what is the stat set to ? A common problem with bottle coolers that work the same way, is people turn the stat to high ( very cold). This then drops the evaporator temperature so low it freezes up, in turn this stops the airflow and the ice build up worsens until you get the result you have, a warm fridge due to no airflow at all. It could be short of gas as this can cause it. A faulty defrost heater / timer can also cause it if its fitted as can a faulty fan that stops spinning. Due to the age of the unit I would try turning the stat back to 3/4 and see how that goes. it will get cold but will be more gradual, but hopefully shouldn't freeze up.
