Re: Fan constantly working
It is normal, it runs all the time. But normally the fan is so quiet, you do not notice it.
What you need to do is carefully remove the cover from over the fan. On that fan there is a gold or solver label, peel that off, and behind that label, there is a rubber cap over the fan bearing. Pop that cap out and lubricate the fan. It will then not be noticable, it runs in slow speed all the time like your power supply cooling fan on your computer, but you really shouldn't notice it. It's pretty common for that bearing to get a bit dry and make the fan operate noisily.
Make sure you replace the rubber cap over the bearing. And if you have any electrical tape, clean the excess oil off the cap and just put a small piece of tape over it so it does not vibrate off.
That will be your fix. Have done it a few times to that particular machine.

No, the fan is not meant to run all the time, and not with the unit in standby. The fan in many DVD recorders is usually only meant to be active whenever a disc is loaded and is either recorded or played back - the fan is designed to circulate the airflow for the DVD drive and its associated digital controller circuit. If the fan is still running even after you ejected all discs/tapes, and turned the unit off at the front, then it will require a service technician's attention in a fully equipped workshop. If the fan does not run when the unit is in standby, then you have no fault; it is a normal condition.
Hi neezels, go to page 53 in you're manual. Scroll to the bottom of the page to ( System Smart FAN Control). This is you're case fan. This is why you're system fan is running while in standby.
By enabled you're case fan will still run but adjust it's speed acording to the motherboard temp. Even though you're system may be in standby you're case fan will continue to fun to maintain temp. (Pretty smart noard)!
hmmmm no thats peculiar it will slow down and start back each time the doors are open also fan will turn on even if fridge is turned off if a door is opened londer than 3 mins. If the fan still operates irradicly even in the liner protect mode (turn refrig off open door for 3 mins, fan turns on) then the main board is faulty not uncommon for these refrigs.
That is a good question. My Model FTR184 Windchaser fan is not working either (has standby light on, and doesn't run, even when temperature setpoint is reduced to less than room temperature (in the PS - personal settings - mode), and more frustratingly, even in the FAN mode, where there is not supposed to be a Standby mode. That darned red Standby LED light just stays on no matter what mode I have fan in (though it does go off when I operate the Power on/off switch to turn everything off.
So, I agree with Lease. Why isn't our fan model listed? And, of course, what is wrong with mine.
inner fan is working all the time in order to cool off the electronic units, but you may wanna try checking for overheating. this can resault of:
- air hole too close to the wall, or jammed by something.
- working enviroment is too hot. room temperature and so.
- dust and dirt accumulated on the fan, or heatsinc.
you can clean it with a vacum cleaner or compressed air.
