    But when the fan is on and fridge is cold everything is fine. Its just when it starts to melt and everything is warm, I have to take out the remaining ice and then the fan kicks on. Why does it takes 8-10 hrs to start the fan again after doing all the above steps. Please advise on that.

I'm guessing that ice is obstructing the spinning blade, you might try running it at a more moderate temp first and be sure your door seal is secure and closing completely, its also likely if ice is obstructing that it has over heated the fan several times and the blade is loose on the shaft and not circulating air effectively, you might be able to only replace the blade but if your going in you might as well do it right and replace the fractional hp motor as well.
Good Luck.

    Well it could be a few things but most likely is that there is a defrost termination circuit that has to prove for the fan that there is no ice on the evaporator coil before it comes back on to prevent the circulation of uncooled air, this circuit could be satisfied by either a rise in temperature or pressure. Regardless the root problem is still the same you are generating to much ice on the evaporator.

My refrigerator does not cool properly. The freezer does not have ice built up and the fan is working, I can here it blowing when i open the freezer. The freezer almost works too well, it is at its lowest...


The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.
