Question about Refrigerators
The freezer on my old sub-zero, model 211 is not freezing but the fridge is working fine. There is a fan in the freezer bottom that does not seem to be going on, even when I close the freezer door. Should I try taking the fan apart? What does that fan do? I'd appreciate any help at all. Thanks so very much!!!
First of all, the freezer temperature is the MAIN part of the unit. Either look for a new thermostat for your model unit and try switching it out, or look for a new fan motor for the freezer. The concept of the refrigerator is just like an A/C unit. It is designed to remove heat from one spot and andcarry it to a discharge place of NO imporatnce. I would definately start with the thermostat in the top of your refrigerator since it is likely the least expensive solution. Research your particular model number for proper fan replacement if it comes down to it. Also, check to insure that the freezer isn't frozen up behind the back wall. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with or if you need more assistance on the same issue.
