As long as the size of the fan, the voltage, and the rpm are the same it doesnt matter. If you still dont feel comfortable about it, computer fans are very inexpensive.
If the fridge has the proper amount of freon and the compressor is working and there are no leaking gaskets then the thermostat would be the logical conclusion. Especially if and I am assuming you have it turned up as far as it will go.

I have a frost free hotpoint and theres ice on the freezer door and the food inside it what could this be and how,do i fix it


Hallo

Frost free means there is an evaporater coil behind the backplate of the inside of your fridge.

How it works is a fan is for example installed in the lower back of your fridge and the evaporater above the fan covered by a plastic cover/steel plate and now the fan is pulling the warm air from the top over the evaporater ( the evaporater is then pulling the warm air into the evaporater without increasing the temperature of the evaporater) and dehumidify at the same time and blowing the cold air out a the bottom of the backplate while the warm air moving to the top where it could repeatedly repeat this action.

Tell me what is the condition of your freezers door seal? It can only be caused by humidity getting in so it mean the door is not sealing 100%.

Regards

Evaporater coil was frozen. Thawed out. Fan is running. Refrigerator was warm. Restarted, refrigerator warm. Freezer to cold frosting. Dampner to refrigerator not staying open.


My first guess is defrost timer, is stuck in defrost, if you can find it, turn it, and if the compressor and fans turn on, you got your answer.

Freezer working fridge not working


Check to see if the evaporater fan in the freezer is running. Check if frost on back wall of freezer from bottom to about 3/4 way up. If frost then you have a defrost problem. If fan is not running check for opstruction (ice) blocking fan or motor. If frosted will be either defrost timer, thermostat, or heater.

Fridge is not cooling but freezer is fine


Yes ! in most french door bottom freezer units there is a fan in the freezer behind the back panel that supplies air to the freezer as well as the frig. When the DC motor on the fan wares out the rpms reduce to the point that the volume of air supplied to both components is reduced to a point that the fan will support the freezer but not the frig. The price of the fan motor alone is around $80.00, if all of the components for the fan are replaced the parts will run about $200.00, if you are not going to do the work yourself it will probably cost in the neighborhood of $300.00 parts and labor.

GE (Mode TBX21ZLG) Frige has water collecting in bottom


if there is definite frost which has some depth to it, you may have a bad defrost timer. look for the timer usually inside kick plate in the front of unit. it'where you clean the condenser coils. with a flat head screwdriver or your finger turn the knob until the unit shuts off. if the fridge doesn't come on in 1/2 hour you have a bad timer motor and buy a defrost timer. if the unit comes on in 20 minutes or so the timer is good and you have to look elseware possibly the condenser coils and fan which are near the bottom clean coils anyway because it's good practice to keep them clean to save energy. the fan either works or it doesn't make sure refridgerator is running to check this. anything else you have to defrost the evaporater in the back wall of freezerthis could take some time but after it's defrosted turn timer to off a see if the heater is red in color if not then with a multi meter with the unit unplugged test across heater for continuity on heater . klixon and hi-temp cut out. good luck. if you are not feeling safe call a repairman
