Question about Refrigerators
This fridge is like new. Except........after 6 to 8 weeks, the fan in the freezer begins to roar. Like the fan is catching on some thing. (ice I believe) The back of the freezer can freeze up to over an inch.
The freezer stays cold but once the fan begins making the noise, the fridge slows and then stops cooling.
We remove all contents and let the freezer thaw out for at least 8 hours.. plug back in and it works like new again. Any thoughts on what is causing the problem? Thank you
What is the stat set to ? A common problem with bottle coolers that work the same way, is people turn the stat to high ( very cold). This then drops the evaporator temperature so low it freezes up, in turn this stops the airflow and the ice build up worsens until you get the result you have, a warm fridge due to no airflow at all. It could be short of gas as this can cause it. A faulty defrost heater / timer can also cause it if its fitted as can a faulty fan that stops spinning. Due to the age of the unit I would try turning the stat back to 3/4 and see how that goes. it will get cold but will be more gradual, but hopefully shouldn't freeze up.
