Thx for you comment, There is no back panel inside this freezer. You remove the bottom panel of fridge to access evap and motor. Motor had power to it. Ohmed out motor and was open.

You must remove baqck panel from bottom of freezer compartment, there you can access fan and other freezer components, check for open defrost thermostat as well.

Kenmore 106.54584400 fridge warm, air baffle No open in normal ops. in test mode opens and closes but evap fan does not run. fan motor runs during normal ops. thermistors good in test mode.

I would meter test the evap fan it may have gone out cuz if it was ur defrost timer or cold control you would have no motor condenser fan working either? and no cold control damper working in test mode?
is the fan impeeded or just not moving?

My Kitchenaid refrigerator KSSC48QMS is humming and cuttung on and off. ????? the lightz blknk when you open the door?


First of all the flashing lights on the panel indicate a problem with the communication between the board and the evap fan motor. Now I would have a certified service person repair this as it will require the control board that needs to be sent in for repair and a fan replacement. Both part need to be replaced at the same time or this issue will not be corrected properly. Your fan has failed and took out the control board is what happened. Evap Fan motor part number is W10255195 and the control Board part number is 2252159, the board is fixable and would need to be removed to be sent out to repair (2 weeks down time is normal). The company who repairs the board is Corecentric Solutions 866-737-2244 or Rough estimate to repair is 175.00 board including shipping, fan motor about 100.00 or so and the labor to change parts as some installation of the units are difficult to change parts inside a closed cabinet, some units have to be removed to access control board in top of the unit. I hope this helped, I own this model and repair these units as well. Good Luck

The refrigerator section has quit working but the freezer still works. It starting making a loud noise just before it quit. I'm just wondering if it's worth having a repair call or just replace the fridge?

Sounds as if the evap fan has quit or a defrost problem. Either is worth the repair. If the fan is running you will hear it when you open the freezer door. If you don't hear it replace the evap fan. If you have a lot of frost build up on the back wall you have a defrost problem and the air cannot flow properly. Either is worth the repair.

Freezer staying cold but fridge side is HOT

The Evaporator fan is not working. Located in the freezer above the evap coils is the circulating fan. Remove the cover to access the evap coils and circulating fan. If fan runs you have a defrost problem and the evap coils will be frozen over.

We have side by side kitchenaid refrigerator. The problem is the freezer side is working, but the vents in the other side (refrigerator) does not blow air. I think the diffuser is not working. Is that...

most likely defrost problem, check for evidence of frost on back of freezer panel, remove evap cover if nec. Make sure evap fan is working, if not, test for power to evap fan, if none, replace. if defrost problem, ohm out heater and defrost thermo, if either open, replace, if not, check defrost timer. If in defrost no power to heater or thermo, replace timer.

Evap fan motors will not come on at all, they did breifly while I was testing unit but will not anymore

Freezers have a fan delay control that keeps fans off till coil reaches 25 *F.

My U-line under counter refigerator ice maker evap fan failed

Depends, for the newer models, you can change the evap fan motor thru the front, but if you have the older model, then you have to remove the freezer housing, ice maker assy then the cover to change the evap fan motor.
