Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Problem #1 - Not sure where the model number is located - there's something on the energy sticker inside that says Model 4666792. Fridge is 7 years old.
Problem #2 - Freezer is cold, fridge is not. Suspect fan not working. We've had ice buildup problems several years ago and when the guy came in, he took out the panel at the bottom of the fridge compartment (I think) and showed us a hopper-type funnel at the middle back part of the fridge, where excess water goes? That was full of ice and kept the fan from moving (I think). I think we have the same problem again. I remember the guy saying we could do it ourselves if it happened again ... but now, when I remove the panel at the bottom of the fridge, I see the covering of the hopper but no way that I can see to pry it off. Directly underneath, in the freezer compartment, is the other half of this hopper, with a little hole in the bottom.
What I want to do is open up that hopper and thaw / chip out the ice and get the fan going again. If in fact, that is the problem.
Thanks for any help you can give!
if its just like u said its a eveporator fan issue foolow me to how to test it:
Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
Before testing the fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer.
The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver.
this is a standar fan try ur imagination sir hehe!!
Remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can access the fan's wiring. Typically two screws secure the mounting bracket in place (labeled "A" below). It may be easier to remove the entire rear panel if the mounting brackets screws are inaccessible.
this is how to remove it
The fan is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the fan before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the fan with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connector off (do not pull on the wire) of the fan's terminal. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Spin the fan blade, it should move smoothly and freely. If the movement is not smooth, the motor should be replaced.
Test the fan for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the fan does not pass this test, it should be replaced.
use ametrix and watch the value

You'll have to call the Professional Serviceman who'll Turn your Fridge Off for a couple of Hours so that the Frost gets melted afterwards, he'll change the Defrost Timer as it's not working properly.
