Hi,

he reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons

  1. The fan or blower has failed.
  2. The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.

The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working

Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.

For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.

So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
  1. The fan or blower
  2. The timer device
  3. The electric heater coil
By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it.

3 is higher than 1.5 and yes some refrigerators/freezers shut off the fan when the temp is satisified.

Why is my Kelvinator 400 twin air no frost fridge leaking water under veg compartment


Good morning Barbara, from what you are describing it sounds like the evaporator drain is clogged. You need to empty the freezer and remove any access panels to get to the drain. Get a bowl of hot water and a turkey baster,then use the baster to force the water into the drain to clear the blockage. Not real familiar with that model,so check under the vegetable compartment to see if the drain is under it first. Hope that helps.
