Question about Kenmore 62232 / 62234 / 62239 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Kenmore Model # 596.73212200
Freezer works fine. Main Refrigerator not cooling. Damper is wide open. Damper drove towards closed when tested with ice cube on little coil on damper control. no air flow at all coming through damper.
Found condenser and evaporator very dirty with dust. Vacuumed as best as I could with out turning fridge completely over.
What supplies airflow to refrigerator section? A fan? There is a fan to the left of the compressor (seen from rear) that is operating. I'm assuming that is to blow air across evaporator. Is there another one?
HI. There are two fans in this unit. The one you are referring to from behind the unit will be the condenser fan. The other fan will be the evaporator fan. This is responsible for the air flow throughout the freezer and refrigerator sections. If this unit is not moving air, and the damper is wide open, the evaporator fan will be the culprit. The evaporator motor and fan assembly can be located just behind the inside freezer panel. Once he freezer concealment panel is removed, the evaporator and fan assembly can be accessed for thorough inspection.
Click here to view a exploded diagram of the evaporator fan blade and motor assembly. The actual fan blade can b removed form the motor. If you notice fan blade issues, kindly replace it. If the fan blades are ok, simply remove the fan blade, an replace the evaporator fan motor.
The fan motor will be labeled #18 on the diagram provide. The motor bracket is labeled #19. The evaporator assembly concealment panel is labeled #4 on the diagram..
