You need to measure the resistance of the motor windings (ohms)
OL is open circuit
0.000 is short circuit
160 to 300 ohms approximately is ok

How to fix the evaporator fan

Take the cover which is the back lining of the freezer compartment off. If the fan is not turning, un-plug the two wires attached to the coil of the motor. Unplug the frig first. Take a volt meter and put the two test probes in each wire end. Plug up the frig. if it reads near 120 volts, you have a bad fan motor. If no voltage, you have another problem. Take the motor off first. See if it turns freely. If not, take it apart, two screws and lube the bearing shaft. Put it back together and see if it runs. Some times the bearings just get dry. If that does not fix, shop on Ebay for a new motor. You will not like the price of the motor at local appliance parts store. The fan blade comes off by just pulling it off. Held on by friction only.

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.

MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

Samsung rs2630Ww. internal refrig fan blower not working and water dispenser not working.

This problem could be caused by the motherboard having defective relays, bad fan motor=> DA31-00103A Fan Motor Sounds like someone will need to examine the fan motor and test the voltage to the fans inside and outside the refrigerator. You will need to have this done to eliminate what the cause is. Both condensor and evaporator fan motors are the same part=> DA31-00103A Fan Motor Let me know and I will explain how to remove, test or replace the freezer/evaporator fan motor, wiring or motherboart. Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a Amana ssd21sl, the evaporator coil freezes up, The fan motor above does not come on, but have 115v to it, Is fan motor bad.

You really need to measure the Ohms resistance for the motor.
OL means the motor is dead
0.000 means the motor is short circuited and is dead
160 to 300 ohms the motor is good

Evap fan won't run but is good and will run when hot wired. Compressor runs but cold air does not circulate through frig side nor freezer. Could defrost heater or timer keep fan from running?

There is a thermostat inside the freezer that is wired in series to the fan more then likely it is bad. Looks like a round disk located on the side of the evaporator coils. If it is puffed up looking it is bad. About the size of a 50 cents piece.

Freezer just right,but bottom too warm. what to do?it is not the controls,ive set them all the way uo with no help. thank you Doyle

most likely your freezer fan motor is bad. it should be be hind the back panel of the freezer compartment. unplug frig. remove the back panel to expose the fan. plug unit back in and turn the controlls to the coldest setting. If you here the compressor running and the fan does not come on within 30 seconds the motor is bad.

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...
