Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Refridgerator fan motor will not stop running

\015 After vacuming under fridge, fan motor wont turn off and clicks periodically\015

Answers :

How were you able to vaccum under the frige?did you move it or tip it on its side or did you just slide it out from the wall and clean underneath ,if you cleaned the aera in back down where the compressor and the fan are,that i'm assuming is the fan that your talking about,that place gets very dirty ,and its hot all the time,dosent take much to cause damage to wires.even with just the wand from a vaccum.you may have bent one of the blades on the fan.or inadvertently knocked dirt inside it.take a look make sure that its not obstructed
You might of pushed something into the fan blade and now its overheating the compressor. Thats usually the clicking that you hear

Everything is out, we have it off, no water is draining. The freezer just stopped cooling, hence the refridgerator side stopped too. I just turned it on after 5 hours. The motor is running and so is the fan. I can hear water dribbling also. I am hoping it will cool. Any suggestions or help. This is the hottest day of the year, and this had to happen today.

The fan on my GE TFX25ARAA refridgerator stops running, but if I give it a push with a pencil, it starts running again. When it is not running, the outside of the refridgerator gets very hot as do the coils. What would cause the fan to stop turning, but still be able to go again with a push?


Possible that the fan is defective or the fan is receiving low voltage so as not to run by itself.\012you will need to remove the fan and check with an external voltage to see if the fan starts without an external trigger.\012 If not chec ...

I have a German specs Liebherr UKSD 4302 standing refrigerator (no freezer). The fan has stopped running and I've noted some condensation on the back wall. The refrigerator is still running and cooling, however, not quite as cool as before. It is an circulating air cooled refrigerator so something is wrong with the fan, fan motor, etc. I've had the refrigerator about 5 years. It is all European specs so I'm running it off a 2000 watt transformer. It has been operating this way for about 1

I have a GE refrig. model GTS22ZCMARCC. The evaporator fan has been pulsing up and down forever. Then the freezer stopped getting cold and the refrig. part was not as cold. I check the evaporator fan and it was not running but the evaporator coil was cold and the compressor was running continuos. I replaced the fan motor and it still does not run (same problem). Is the only other thing that could be causing the problem be the control board on the back of the refrig. (AP4436216)?? Thanks, Ri

My Whirlpool ARC7472 fridge freezer has stopped cooling both feezer and fridge. Removal of the cover in the freezer shows no ice build up, the fan runs, but no cooling effect in the chiller pipework to the evaporator. There appears to be liquid running through the piping as you can hear it 'gurgling'in the freezer - the compressor seems to be running hard and hot. Is this the thermostat faulty, or lack of refridgerant? How do I check for refridgerant loss? Thanks for any help you can give.

Fridge Problems I have a Frigidaire side-by-side. In the last two weeks or so, I noticed that it (motor?) would cycle a few times, then run or shut off. Four days ago, it stopped running (except the fan that cools the coils, it still ran intermittently) and everything thawed in freezer and fridge. After I cleaned out all the spoiled food, it started again, and was running normal. Now, it shut down again yesterday, I threw out all my food again, and now this morning, it's running (cooling) again.

WE have a Whirlpool S20ERAA2V fridge freezer. The motor seems to be running all the time and the fan. If you have the freezer door open for a short time you have to use the boost button else it alarms due to temperature loss. Its as if the thermastat or motor isnt working properly. Also the Ice/water maker makes a funny noise and stops and starts though the freezer problem is more important though maybe linked?

Hello, I own an Admiral Refrigerator (Admiral Ultima 2000) and the evaporator motor occassionally squeals. If I turn off the refrigerator for a while and turn it back on a few hours later, the fan will run for about a half hour before it starts to squeal again. I removed the back cover of the freezer compartment and you can see that the fan stops turning when it squeals. Can you please assist me in diagnosing what the problem is. Thanks
