RF267aewp french door refrigerator is acting crazy. Sometimes compressor fan runs, sometimes it doesn't same with freezer fans. Front control panel will not respond so I cannot get into diagno


Had same problem on my fridge a long time ago. Here is what was wrong on mine. Debris had clogged up around the fan blades to the point where the very small motor that runs the fan was not powerful enough to make the fan turn. When this happens the compressor has to work harder and harder until it finally shut down on safety cutout. I had to open the back of the fridge and clean up the fan blades, [ took the opportunity to put a small amount of oil on the fan shaft too, my Norge fridge is now over 50 years old.]

You can try and oil it if it has oilers on it...... or try and spray some WD40 right where the shaft comes out of the motor....If you can't get the motor to start then you may have to unload the freezer if you can't find a new motor to replace the bad one. good luck.....

We have a True TS-49F freezer that the interior fan have stopped working. Holding the door switch does not activate them. Unit is out of warranty.


Most all commercial freezers like yours have, what is called, a fan delay. It is located in the evaporator case and is usually attached on or very close to the actual cooling coil. It may also be a combination switch known as a defrost terminator/ fan delay. It's purpose is to keep from circulating warm air. If the cooling coil does not reach a preset temp, the fans do not come one. Another thing is that the fan motor may just be bad. If you have more than one fan, then chances are that it's going to be the fan delay. I would start there to see that either the fan delay switch is bad or there is a reason that the coil is not getting cold enough to activate the switch.

My upright freezer compressor is running but the circulating fan won't run.I already bypassed the thermostat but the fan still won't run.I also defrosted the freeze manually and still no go with the fan...


The problem is the evap. fan has gone bad. Part # WR60X10235, cost approx. $120.00 or the TJ90sm999 is one that will fit all of them which is only $25.00 and in my opinion a much better fan. Hope this helps. The sm999 has been around for years and is a universal fan which is easily adapted to fit all 115 volt evap fans like yours.

The 2 fans are not working but the freezer coils are freezing up won;t go below 20 degrees


the freezing is and temp are caused by the fans not working. One fan pulls warm air out of the box and across the evaporator coil, which in your case is frozen, and the other fan is used to pull air over the condensing coil which rejects the heat pulled out of the box. check the wiring diagram for a fan relay first, which can easily be changed out, or by some crazy chance, both fans quite working at the same time

Freezer comes on fan starts after a few seconds goes off freezer unit freezes solid fan doesnt come on again fan is ok


Good day,
When the thermostat is turned on, the fan and compressor should come on and start at the same time. If the compressor continues to run and the fan doesn't, then the fan motor or the wiring to it are suspect.

Quote (The fan motor is o.k ). I doen't know how you tested it, but it still remains suspect, since the thermostat sends power to both of them at the same time.

Evaporator fans do not come on, why would evaporator is not cool enough?


There are three main reasons the fans would not come on.
1: A bad door switch. There are switches on the top part of door frame. They turn fans off when door is opened to prevent warm air from being drawn into unit when door is open. If a switch goes bad the fans will never turn on.
2: Refrigeration problem. The fans are tied into a temperature switch called a fan delay. The fans will not come on until the coil is well below freezing. This is to prevent water spray after a defrost. If unit is low on gas or has any other cooling issue the fans will not come on.
3: Bad fan delay switch. If the fan delay switch becomes "stuck open" the fans will not be energized.

Feel the back of your evaporator coil, if it is very cold and frosted you probably have a bad fan switch, or a bad door switch. ;)

Fan in freezer not working


It runs when the compressor runs except when it's in the defrost cycle. If you have an electronic control instead of a defrost timer the control could be the problem since it runs the fans. You can test the evaporator fan. See how here> How to check everything

Evap fan will not come on,jumped out the fan control fan comes on


Since this is a freezer, it should have a defrost terminator/ fan delay. This could have gone bad or you may have a refrigeration problem. Such as low on freon due to a leak. Need more info, I'll explain in detail. Let me know. Will Be more than happy to.
