Sounds like a problem with the circuit would have to check and see if the fan is getting voltage.....sometimes the fan in the freezer will build ice from the ice maker leaking, and the ice will get stuck in the fan blade causing it not to run....hard to get to the fan on those but if you disassemble the freezer you can check it out

Samsung RF2178CBPX99. When do internal cooling fans cycle? Frenchdoor model. We have just reinstalled this unit. We dont hear internal or condensor fans running

When the compressor is running at least the freezer fan should be on and if not also the evaporator fan in the fresh food section should be running when it calls for cold air but basically anytime the compressor runs the fans should be running all of .them. a lot of times when there's a problem with the start relay and run capacitor on the compressor d external and internal fans will not come on what you need to do is find out if the compressor is getting hot and not running

Why won't my samsung rb193kasb freezer fan run and the freezer is warm? How do i fix this?

On some Samsung frdge-freezers,fan blades get stuck in ice build-up inside refrigerator compartment due to automatic de-frost not working properly. If you have time, simply switch off and leave fridge door open, and allow defrost to happen naturally. Alternatively, speed up defrost using bowls of hot water, and remove panel at back when enough ice has melted

Milk freezing and eggs cracking

There should be an internal evaporator fan that circulates the air evenly through the refrigerated compartment. Check to see that it is working and not stuck or burned out. If it is frosted up thaw out with a hair dryer and see if it operates. Hope this helps.

Frdge and freezer warm compressor wont start no power to start capacitor


Pull unit away from the wall, unplug it. There is a panel above the compressor area< remove the panel and release the clips to the board, inspect the board for burns, you will find that the large black relay has a broken weld to the board. Only good repair for this is to replace the board, P# WR55X10942. Read instruction carefully as some unit require a slight modification to a sensor harness and others don't. This issue was common in the 06-08 models as the weld would weaken and burn.

Good luck if you need more assistance, just ask.

If the condenser fan is not running while the compressor is running could damage the compressors overload. Yes it's a serious problem if not repaired soon. (Unplug until repaired.) This can cause a weakened internal overload inside the compressor. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer dying first, fridge failing...

Is the compressor running. also check to see if the fan next to compressor is running. They should both run at same the compressor fan running and compressor not? Could be the compressor start relay. Next, is there frost buildup on inside back wall of freezer? If so u may have a defrost control out or defrost heater or defrost terminating thermostat out. Greg

Frdge not getting cold

Since your unit will have only one compressor, the cooled air must be circulated via a fan that distributes the air between the two compartments and this has probably died. This allows the cooled air to simply fall downward. When you can hear the compressor running, hold your fingers in front of the vents in the refrigerator compartment to see if you can feel any air stream.

Maytag plus 1956ge frdge is warm and freezer is cool

You probably have a bad fan motor.

You can purchace them for about 20 bucks at any local appliance parts house. They are typically held in with two bolts and have two wires going to them.

If you have voltage going to the motoer, and no operation, the motor is bad. Be sure you unplug it before you start taking things apart.
