Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore (frigidaire) model #253.55679400 evaporator fan does not come on

The freezer is working fine, but the evaporator fan will not come on to move the air into the fridge side. The evaporator is not a block of ice and the heat coil is working. Does the ADC PCB control the fan and the damper? When I first plug the unit in the evaporator fan comes on for about 1 min.In the past I have had this problem, but when I unplugged the unit and left it overnight it worked fine in the morning and continued to work for about 5 weeks. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Yes, the fan is controlled by the pcb controller, but it is also dependent on the temperature sensor since it is waiting for the sensor to give the signal that the freezer coils has froze up before turning the fan on.

it could be a bad freezer temp sensor.

I have a Kenmore Elite model no is 59673502201 and it stop cooling in both the frig and freezer i replaced the condenser fan motor and it worked so i replaced the back and the unit will STILL NOT GET


Do you hear your evaporator fan running in the freezer drawer area?
If not, then that's the fan you should have replaced.

If your compressor is running and both the compressor fan and the evaporator fan are running, check the back wall of your freezer compartment. If it is frosted up, then you have a defrost problem.

If it's not frosting up, disassemble your freezer drawer section and remove the back panel in the freezer to look at your evaporator coil.

If it's partially frosted at the top, or bottom, but the rest of it is dry looking, then you've got a leaking sealed system.

If it's lightly frosted all over, then you have good coolant flow and you need to start looking at your thermostat and damper up in the fresh foods section.

Good luck!

I have a kenmore model # 59675522400 The fridge is


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. You have most likely found the problem being the evaporator fan is turning slowly. Most of the time if there is a voltage problem with and evaporator fan they just do not turn at all. I suspect that the fan bearings are dry and the armature is not turing full speed.

Sometimes you can lubricate the motor with a parrifin based oil and revive them. Most of the time on the white motors lubrication does not work as you can only lubricate one of 2 bearings due to the motor design.

Your evaporator fan motor is here: Detailed view

The Evvaporator fan motor voltage should be 120 VAC across the 2 fan motor wires.

Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator, evaporator fan not running


As insignificant as it may seem, that evap fan motor is as important as petrol in a car. That fan controls the fridge cooling on many fridges and circulation in tha freezer compartment. Replace it with the correct one and you should see a functional fridge/ freezer again. Note, i wouldnt run unit without it for long, as condensig temperatures run high and compressors dont last long.

Kenmore Trio: the refridgerator is not getting cool


In the Freezer or Fridge compartment, there is the Evaporator Fan (& Motor) If the freezer is cold, the Evaporator fan motor most likely went bad. Check to see that when the compressor is running, so should be the fan motor. If not, you have to remove it & replace it. It is not an expensive repair unless you call for service on it. Make sure that you unplug the fridge when you replace the fan motor.

Top refrigerator section will not cool


Check the evaporator fan , freezer must have a fan to avoid ice formation, if evaporator does not work, thermic sensor jams up and freezer stop working. The fan is located behind the panel in the freezer.

Check the back of your freezer, If there is frost or ice, then the unit is not defrosting.
This is often caused by problems with evaporator system.
Sometimes you also need to check the defrost timer, located at the top of the FFC on the Top freezer.
Check also the defrost thermostat, which is on the evaporator inside the freezer.
If it isnt defrosting, change both.
