Well, it cools when the cover is not in place over the fridge fan. i recently replaced the fridge fan motor and blade with oem sub-zero parts since the motor was going bad and making a lot of noise. now, with the cover off it cools fine. with the cover in place it will not cool at all. the fan blade is not impeded by the cover, it seems to run fine, but no cooling takes place.

The freezer section has its own fan and the fridge has its own fan motor. The two systems are separate from each other and does not share air. The Fan in the freezer is located behind the ice maker in the freezer section.
First of all if you're condensor motor is controlled by electronic control board varyable speed type you might want to think about looking at replacing the control board. But first I would take a voltmeter test to see if the fan motor is getting enough voltage. If the voltage varies with the temperature inside the box then you have a controller. If the voltage remaind constant (120) and the motor still slows down yoy have a bad fan motor. As far as you're like the problem goes the only thing I can think of besides loose wires or bad switch.would be if it operated off the same control board.
If the sound is from the inside the freezer compartment its a small fan that circulates air. If it is from the back outside of the unit its your condensor fan motor. You can replace these yourself just let us know. Be aware over time the fridge will stop cooling as the motor fails completely.
Is the area between your fridge and freezer smoking hot? Can you smell
the rubber seals melting? Does your fridge squeak like crazy? You have
an issue with your condenser fan. You can save about $50 by fixing the
fan motor yourself. I'm no engineer but this was an easy fix.
1) Unplug the fridge.
2) Take off the lower back panel covering the condenser and fan.
3) Unplug the fan (on the top left from the fan.
4) Slide the fan out of the bracket
5) Take the fan blade off. (This will take the most time and TLC, it is
6) Take the two screws out of the back of the housing.
**The fan motor should be free of the housing and blade**
7) Remove the two screws from the fan motor housing.
8) Pull the shaft out of the motor and clean all parts with some oil and
9) Make sure all moving parts are well oiled then put the shaft back in
the motor housing.
10) Replace the motor housing screws
11) Replace the motor into the fan housing and replace the screws.
12) Slide the fan blade back onto the shaft (I used some super glue to
help hold it in place)
13) Slide the fan housing back into place
14) Plug the fan into the socket
15) Plug in the fridge to make sure your fix worked (it may take a
minute to kick on)
16) Replace the lower cover
check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly
I recently had my fridge run alot but not cool and I had to have the computer chip and a part in the blower motor changed before it cooler correctly again. You can try to clean off the back of the fridge by the motor really good, get inbetween the thin blades and everything, sometimes that will fix it.
There is a fan inside the freezer and possibly the fridge. It circulates the cold evenly throughout the unit. The fan may shut off with the door open so hold the door switch in to see if you hear the fan. It's behind the rear cover on the inside.
Did u check condenser on the top behind the grill? If it's clean, check unit for evaporator freon leaking. Light....Possibly bad bulbs behind that plastic light cover or light switch - one of them located on upper portion of door frame.
you might have a few problems,, make sure to check the condensor is clean, also make sure the condensor fan motor is going... you might have a bad Condensor fan motor, and Ref Control or a Freon Leak @ the Evaporator... I would call a tech to check it out...
