Question about Kenmore 54662 / 54664 / 54669 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

At first the entire unit was not cooling on either side (before that we noticed that it was making ice very slow) I found the evap fan motor was not coming on and the coils were about half way frosted over. I just removed the motor and reinstalled it (the old one) and then it worked. Now the Freezer and Refrigerator is too cold. I have both controls turned almost to zero. The damper door seems to not work. How can I test this? Could the problem be somewhere else?

SOURCE: replaced mother board now damper clocsed

rip, couple of checks to do: On the main board, connector J3. On the harness you should have 400 ohms on J3-1 (yellow) to J3-2 (red/black) and 400 ohms on J3-3 (white/brown) to J3-4 (blue yellow. Same values should be at the damper motor. If you don't have those values, damper motor defective. One other check, you have 10 seconds to do this on power up, so get some help. Plug in the refer. Check for 6 VDC. DC voltage now from pins J3-1 to J3-4. If you don't have this it's the board. If you do have this and the dampers not working, replace the damper. Catriver.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

SOURCE: kenmore freezer and fridge is not cold - not frost build up - compress anf fans are all running

You need a qualified technician for this problem.
- Your unit may have leaking try to check for oil traces.
- The system maybe restricted, system reprocess is needed for this unit.
- If the unit is no frost try to check if there is an air circulation inside the unit. If no air is present then check your fan motor inside.

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,

SOURCE: Amana Mod # ABB2223DEB Refrigerator

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice


if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

GE GSS201EMDCC Fridge and freezer not cooling.


there is probaly a "clixon" in the unit that senses the temp of the evap. if the evap does not get down to a certin temp the fan will not run. this makes it so you do not have ice crystals all over the freezer. matters on model. also sounds like the fridge might be short on gas.

Iced up Samsung RS21 JGNS Help!!


Defrost the unit and after defrosting, with the unit unplug rotate the fan blade manually using your finger. The fan should rotate freely, the blade should not touch the fan frame. Slow rotation of fan motor can cause icing. Worn out bearing, misalign fan blade, partially burn fan motor can slow the rotation of blower motor.But if the blower operate normally, then the unit may be under charge of refrigerant. Qualified technician is needed with this problem.

My kenmore refrigerator kept running.


from your description it sounds like your hearing the start relay trying to start your compressor. most likely this relay is bad and needs replacing.
