SOURCE: evaporator fan

Check and make sure that you didn't knock a piece of insulation down onto the condenser fan when you were vacuuming off the coil. When the fan is blocked it can cause the compressor to what is called short cycle and the refer will never get up to temp. Also check your door seals. Insert a dollar bill between the gasket and frame and gently pull on it. It should be fairly tight as you check all the way around the gaskets if not you may have to replace the gaskets or adjust the door. As for the pan underneath. It should have a little moisture in it every 8 to 12 hours as it is the capture pan for the self-defrost. If not you could have a problem with your defrost heater check for ice build up on the back panel of the freezer. If there is a build up then your refer is not going into defrost and you may have a problem with the defrost heater, defrost timer, defrost thermo., etc. Be sure and check all these areas as you don't want to throw money away needlessly.

SOURCE: Evaporator fan did not start running when condenser fan started.

I don't know why there would be much of a delay between the condenser and evaporator fans coming on. If you have diagnosed it as a bad motor, that's probably correct.

But the motor could just need cleaning and lubricating

SOURCE: I have an amana bc20tw

This uses an 8 hour timer which means it goes into defrost every 8 hours shutting down the compressor and fan motor.

Kenmore refrigerator model 59562998 Compressor is running but no air is blowing into the refrigerator or freezer


the evaporator fan has stopped. it is usually in the back of the freezing compartment behind all the plastic. when the fan stops no air can circulate over the cooling coils so even though the compressor is running no cold can move iside the freezer or fridge. be extra careful when you take the small screws out as the screw heads can be full of build up that makes it hard to get a good hold of them. take your time and clean off all the screw heads so they don't strip out. The evaporator fan is not to expensive wait to buy on until you get the old one out.

Freezer doesn't seem cold enough, took over 24 hours to make ice cubes!!! Small fan at the back of the freezer doesn't seem to work regularly, fridge seems ok


If the fan in the refrigerator (evaporator fan) isn't working properly your machine isn't going to be as cold as it should be and your ice maker won't work properly as well. This is due to the fact that the ice maker has a sensor in it and it won't produce ice unless the sensor tells it is lower than 10 degrees F. A rule of thumb is if the condensor fan motor is running, which is the fan located by the compressor, than the evaporator fan should be running as well. Now, with that said, there evap fan is tied into what they call a bi-metal thermostat. Depending on the brand these sometimes go bad causing the fan not to run, but that wil cause it not to work at all. If its working intermitantly, than chances are the fan motor is bad.

I have a beverage air kegerator that seems to work fine, but the evaporator fan runs constantly. Is it supposed to run constantly, or is it supposed to cycle on and off with the compressor, etc.?


Most evaporator fans run all the time. This is mainly to use the air flow to assist in melting off any frost build up during the compressor off cycle. If that fan shut off with the compressor the coil will have a tendency to freeze up. :)

Runs -6far. for about 2 weeks, then alarm sounds, unit is warm.


its the problem of the motor which runs the fan.that motor needs replacement.a very chance it can be possible that the motor is perfect but the wirings from the motor which connects to the fan are faulty and got cut in between.but it can be possible.so first check out the wirings if they r perfect then its faulty fan  motor.get it replaced. thanks.
