Sounds like a intermittent problem with the defrost timer. Sometimes they get stuck. Check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If both are good then replace the defrost timer, that should solve the problem.
You have solved your problem :D You need to get that fan blowing. The vast majority of the time that is all you need. Other times, there can be another part controlling the operation of the fan (ADC - Adaptive Defrost Control). Post the model number and I will see if you have one of these ADCs in your appliance :D
The fan has quit working or is blocked. The fan is usually located in the back of the freezer, under a cover. this is easily changed if you have access to parts and a few tools, you can probably replace it yourself. Unplug frig while removing fan and the cover, remove the fan attaching screws, unplug the wire, reverse sequence for installation. It is safe to leave the frig plugged in while you get replacement fan. Whirpool makes Kenmore so you may be able to get the fan at Sears parts center.
hello, my refrigerator got the following problem; it works fine at the freezer but there is no cold in the frig, when i unplug it from the wall connection and after few time connect it again, it start working, after few hours, the refrigerator stop, the freezer is fine and very cool,but the frig is not cool and the refrigerator do not start working again, even after the freezer gets warm.Please i hope you can help me with this problem.
Check if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer, if so it is not defrosting. Many GE fridges need a new defrost heater every couple of years. If it's not defrosting, you can get by for a while by unplugging the fridge and leaving the freezer door open for 24 hrs, then plugging back in.
