Question about Refrigerators
The fan in the freezer has stopped running. A look shows that everything appears in working order; other then the fan which also blows the cooler air into the lower unit. Could it be the fan or the defrost timer. A look at the defrost timer shows that it is running via a plastic wheel viewable by a clear plastic cover.
I assume that you noticed a loss of cooling in the refrigerator and freezer? In order to tell if it's the defrost timer, a good idea would be to check and see if there is a large amount of ice behind the interior back panel of the freezer (where the evap fan motor is located). If there is, you most likely have a defrost problem. There should be some frost, but it shouldn't be thick chunks of ice.
Otherwise, you probably just need to replace the fan. If you have a GE that takes an electronic control board, you may need to replace it as well. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
