Evap. fan mtr are always tricky if the are intermittent. you need to record the sound when it happens and make sure it is coming from the freezer. make a record of how many times it happens in a 24hr period all this will help the tech. and don't take no for a answer from the tech most service calls are good for 30 days

Ess25lgmb freezer fan doesnt shut off

Most fans only run when the compressor runs, it must be wired wrong, OR if the unit has a computer control (LED digital display) it may be the main board has shorted, you can try unplugging it and let it sit for 10 minutes, then replug it. ALSO sometimes there are sensors that sense the temurature and will kick on a fan if they are out of parameter, changing sensors if they are malfuntioning can fix this as well...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Frist off the un-plug routine for 3 days can be accomplished with a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (I.e. a manual defrost) Why they told you 3 days... vs using a fan is absurd.

Now for your defrosting problem. Lets try to manually initiate a NORMAL defrost cycle that should take 45 mins or less to complete.
Using this link:

locate item 6. (Adaptive Defrost timer)... It will be in the overhead of the fresh food compartment. (Your probably going to need some one with some mechanical skills) Gain access to the defrost timer. (Yes you have to take things apart) To put this board into defrost, short "L1" and "Test" with a small screwdriver and wait three to 8 seconds. You should hear a clicking noise from the relay and the uint will shut off except for the lights and go through a defrost cycle. This cycle should terminate in 45 minutes or less. If it does terminate there is either a problem with the defrost themostat or the defrost element. You should hear some hissing after about 10 minutes as the evaporated ice turns to water and drips onto the glass tube of the defrost heating element.
No hiss or heat from the heating element = failed element or defreost thermostat.

If the defrost cycle never terminates.... the defrost thermostat is bad. You should be able to terminate the defrost cycle yourself after an hour by simply unplugging the unit for about 10 minutes.

If it does not even cycle into defrost after a few attempts of shorting J1 and Test the adaptive defrost control has most likely failed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Er ff what's that?

FF(Freezer Fan) this is the fan that circulates cold air thru the freezer as well as the refrigerator. If this is the first time the er has appeared, you need to unplug the unit for about 10 minutes, plug the unit back in. This should reboot the unit and erase the er.
