My LG GR-F218NI comes up with the message Er FF, I gather this means the freezer fan is not working. I can get it going again tempoararily by turning the fridge off and opening the (empty) freezer drawer for a while. The fridge then cools normally for 3-4 hours. The weather is very humid and this suggests to me that the freezer fan is getting iced up. Does anyone know how to get at the freezer fan to check if it has ice around it or jamming the blades. Alternatively the freezer fan is just bu

OK, I TOOK YOUR ADVICE AND FIRST REPLACED THE MAIN BOARD. WHEN THAT DIDNT WORK, I REPLACED THE CONDENSOR FAN IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. THE FAN DOES NOT WORK AT ALL NOW. ALSO, BEFORE THE FAN USED TO WORK ON ONE CYCLE AND COOL DOWN THE FREEZER AND FOOD COMPARTMENT, THEN AS YOU WOULD GO IN AND OUT OF FOOD COMPARTMENT, WOULD STEADLY RISE IN TEMPERATURE. AT LEAST THE FAN WORKED FOR ONE CYLCE. SO FAR OUT OVER $300, AND PROBLEM WORSE THAN BEFORE. NOW WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? BEEN WITHOUT A REF

I am having cooling problems on my Viking VCBB360. The evaporator fan doesn't seem to be running. The light in the freezer is not going out when the door is closed, and I wasn't sure if the evaporator fan was tied in to the freezer door switch. I removed the switch from the back of the freezer and bridged the connectors, but the light remained on. Now I'm not sure why the light remains on even after bridging the switch. Does this mean it is a control board problem? I was thinking it was the

Freezer works great; frig only at 57-59 degrees. I melted the ice totalling blocking the air duct. I checked the fan, it works outside with 120 applied. There is 120 going to the power at the quick disconnect calling for the fan to run. I can't tell for sure if the fan is turning, fully assembled; or not. I guess it could be restricted?? I can't imagine what else could be wrong. When I melted the ice in the duct, I did a very thorough job. I set the freezer to warmest and frig to coldest.

The fan in the freezer section will stop, but you can hear the compressor running. This causes the freezer to defrost everything in it. If I unplug it and plug it back the fan will start working again. It might go days without a problem or it might only last a couple of hours.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling properly.The motor seems to be running. There is the sound of a fan in the freeaer. I cleaned underneath with a vaccuum and my compressor.

Plugged back in and it worked for a day then went into defrost mode and stayed there. The quick ice button does not work as well as it does not turn on the fan in the freezer side.
