Iturned off a Kenmore elite side by side refrigerator for couple days,and rellaced evaporator fan motor.How long takes the fan motor starting work?


If you replaced the fan motor with a new one, it should start working as soon as you plug it in. Are the blades bent and catching on something? The fan should run with the compressor. Did you wire it properly?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. You have most likely found the problem being the evaporator fan is turning slowly. Most of the time if there is a voltage problem with and evaporator fan they just do not turn at all. I suspect that the fan bearings are dry and the armature is not turing full speed.

Sometimes you can lubricate the motor with a parrifin based oil and revive them. Most of the time on the white motors lubrication does not work as you can only lubricate one of 2 bearings due to the motor design.

Your evaporator fan motor is here: Detailed view

The Evvaporator fan motor voltage should be 120 VAC across the 2 fan motor wires.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

if the evaporator is clogged with ice, then you have a defrost problem.
check the defrost heater and the bi-metal .

to answer your question what controls the fan then it is the module that controls the fan.

you said you have diagnostic to test the damper then there should be a procedure also to test the evaporator fan motor.

why don't you try it..

tnx 4 using fixya,

Unplug the wires from the motor and check the voltage differential cross the two wires. If you have 120 Volts or in that area the motor should run. Try moving the fan shaft up and down. If you have any play in this the motor bearing are bad. Replace the motor.

Inside fan motor - evaporator


Yes if you dont hear the evap fan wprking remove rear panel in freezer let me know what you see. Is coil iced over? Is fan running? Is the motor warm? Attempt to spin the blade gently to see if the motor is bound. You can oil these.
