This fan should operate when the door is CLOSED - so you will not see it operate. It replaces the old-style damper - that controls the cool air coming from the freezer to keep a pre-set temp.

If it is not working at all - this is the cause of the temp rise in the fridge.

Further testing will need to be done to determine if it is the fan, or controller board that has failed. (fan could also be frozen)

My bottom mount french door refrigerator, the upper part does not cold, it's warm


Hi,
Sorry your having trouble so soon!
First thing you need to check is inside the freezer section.
The freezer fan, the fan is W10128551 and should be running
along with the main compressor. Since the freezer is working,
I would check the food on the top drawer or on the freezer door shelf.
They too might be soft..without the fan.
I would You tube 'evaporator fan motor replacement Amana bottom freezer model' Yes I know it say's Whirlpool, but your unit is really
a Amana designed unit. I would give this a difficulty of 3 out 5 wrenches.. Take your time..

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

Frost in freezer fridge warm


Sounds like the circulating fan behind the rear panel inside the freezer section is starting to go bad, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan still spins but at a much lower rate than needed to circulate chilled air thru the freezer and the frig. The minimum cost for parts and labor is around $300.00.

I have a Kenmore Elite Trio for about 3 years now. The first problem I have was - the freezer is fine but the fridge is warm. The cause was the fan on which it stop working after just a year and a half....


If your unit is like most french door w/freezer chests it has to be the fans again. There are two fans at the rear of the freezer chest one supplies circulation to the ice maker and refrigerator and the other supplies ciculation to the freezer section. These fans don't seem to be vary well made but are expensive to replace. I would replace them first. if that is not the problem then you would have to look at the compressor.

Warm Fridge Section, Cool freezer section


Problem seems to be solved. I unplugged it for a short time and plugged it back in. I'm guessing it needed to be re-set.

Noise from fridge when doors are closed.


There is a good chance this is the culprit.

Servicing the Evaporator Fan

In some cases, a faulty thermostat may not be the cause of a warm refrigerator or freezer. A warm box may also be caused by a defective fan, a blocked fan, or broken or bent fan blades. If the blades are jammed, try to free them. If they're bent, straighten them with pliers. If this doesn't solve the problem, call a professional service person.

On some refrigerators, the door switch operates the evaporator fan. If the fan seems to be malfunctioning, the door switch could be faulty. Test the switch as detailed in the last page, and replace it if necessary.

Good Luck! Buddy777

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
