    Same issue, minus the power failures.  Read something awhile back about a tube that is supposed to drain condensation, but I didn't really understand what the fix was.

I would start with a 24 hour full defrost,
if the problem reoccures then it is more likely thermister fault

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator


The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

A broken fan blade can cause a noisy motor. or a buildup of ice can cause some noise. If thes aren't the case you will need to have the fan motor replaced.

Does not get cold


I'm not sure if you mean it's not getting cold enough or dot at all.
The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. If there is a lot of build up then the defrost timer may need to be replaced.
Most of the time the evaporator coils and fan are located behind panels in the freezer section. These are usually easy to remove. The defrost timer is a different story and may require the help of a service person.
Hope this helps.

When doors are opened it stops. Ice is forming unnaturally in the


It sounds like you may have a bad evaporator fan motor or broken blade.

Another cause could be a failed defrost system component. The would cause a build up of ice and frost and the fan blade could be coming in contact with the frost or ice.

The fan stops running when the doors are opened on this model to prevent the circulation of warm air.

Buzzing sound


If noise stops when you open the door, you may have a noisy fan (or could have ice build up, causing fan blade to hit ice and cause noise). I gather it is a frost-free model ie has a fan in the freezer compartment. If noise is caused by fan hitting ice build up, you may have a problem with the auto defrost system, as you should not get ice build up in a frost free.
Noise stops when you open door because fan turns off when door is opened.

Fridge freezer


there is a fan inside freezer behind back panel. if pipework behind panel is covered with ice, it will prevent air circulation and the fridge is affected first

take back panel off and check for ice build-up and that the fan is working

Freezer fan is very noisy


What knid of a noise is it making. A high pitched squeal tells me the bearings in the motor are bad and you need to replace the fan motor obtainable through a dealer. If the noise is more of a grinding noise it could be a simple mater of the fan blade hitting some ice build-up. Defrosting the area of the fan motor with a hair dryer will melt the ice.

6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.
