The fan made some bad noise and now the front center part of the refrigerator is almost too hot to touch. I took the back slide of the refrigerator off and it seems the fan isn't working. I tried turning it and the motor just made a humming sound (like it was trying to turn but couldn't). I'm assuming this is the motor for the fan. Is that an accurate assumption?


Yes. Usually the motor does not come with the fan blade. You should unplug it until you replace the fan motor or set up a portable fan to blow on the compressor and coils. ... Samsung RS2630WW Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a u line fridge/icemaker undercabinet model that does not seem to be cooling- it had not been turned on for for quite some time but a few weeks ago we turned it on and it seemed to cool but we noticed how much hot air was coming from under the unit and thought that was normal-then after a few weeks it wasn't cooling anymore - I pulled off the lower front grill and cleaned the lint on the coils --(quite a bit)-- and turned it back on-the fan motor is on but I don't feel the hot air like be

I have hss25gfp side by side the freezer stopped freezing and it very hot on the middle divider. I took off the bottom on the back and it was caked with a bunch of lint. I cleaned it off. But noticed the fan, I guess on the coils isn't turning on. Not sure if that takes time to turn on. But could it be that fan is no longer working?


If the compressor is running the condenser fan should be too. If the fan does not run the compressor will overheat and stop. If you cool the underside with a small box fan and the chill returns to the box, replace the condenser fan. ... Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

The condenser fan is not running. I shut the fridge off because the divider between the fridge and freezer was so hot. When I turned the unit back on, the fan did run for a while. Does the fan need replacing or is it a switch or sensor that tells the fan when to start?

Re: GE Model GSH25SGPC SS Serial No. TF273078 Problem: The dividing center panel behind the doors is very hot. So hot that one cannot touch it for more than few seconds. The refrigerator is otherwise cooling just fine. What have I done so far? I took out the back panel at the base. The fan was not moving. Fan was not too dirty and blades move freely when pushed by hand. However, the condenser assembly to which the fan is attached was quite dirty and I cleaned that. Plugged power back on. Fan

I have a may tag MBB 2254 G /2256 G refrigerator. The machine was not cooling, pulled the back and front panels and vacuumed out, full of dust, lint etc. I plugged back in, let go for a hour or so, a little cooling but not much. The compressor seemed fairly hot. I could hear the relay cycling I assume to kick the compressor. After several seconds hear another relay click. I do not feel any coldness on the compressor copper lines. The back fan is running, the interior fan is circulating.

I have a side by side fridge that quit cooling (freezer and fridge) yesterday. the compressor is hot on the top and sounds like it is running. i turned it off for 24 hours to see if it was possibly frozen. i did not have any water and still will not cool (it does have self defrost). condensing coils are clean and fan is blowing. when i turn the temp to off for the fridge side and then turn it back on i initially get a clicking noise that comes from where the interior fan is housed, but the noise

My GE Profile side by side is not cooling or freezing (refrigerator and freezer). I took the back lower cover off and cleaned, etc. The fan still runs, the compresser (metal thing next to fan) is not hot. I'm guessing the compresser isn't working but would like to save a service call if there's a way to know for sure. The temperature has now gone all the way to the highest and turned off on both sides. When I turn on to cool you hear a slight change in sound but then nothing.

I plan on trying to replace the fan and motor as others have. In meantime, I've removed the back bottom panel and have hooked up a box fan to keep air moving. It has helped to get the side cool.

Have a GE Profile PFS22MIBBB. Just replaced condenser fan motor, and main board. The control board now is working, but the fan still has not turned on after 2 hours. Is this normal, or is there something else. Condenser and coils seem pretty hot. Original problem was fridge and freezer not cooling. Placing a desk fan behind unit aimed at coils did trick, but I need my fan back.


You will need to unplug the fan and test the voltage coming from the board. You should have 12 to 13 volts DC. Unless you place a fan on condenser that blows air to keep it cool until we locate the problem the compressor can be damaged from over heat ...

I have a KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS00 side-by-side refrigerator. Freezer suddenly began warming and noticed divider between freezer and fridge very hot. Removed back panel and noticed condensor fan was not running, but it would start up if I gave it a spin. It eventually stops again and the warming problem returns. Does this mean the condenser fan needs to be replaced? I figure that it must be the fan rather than a control board since it runs when I spin it. Your opinions are much appreciated.

Hi Side by side refrigerator not cooling down. Freezer seems to be not freezing. refrigerator compressor is running. Freezer damper wide open on a setting, refrigerator turned up to 10, running but not cooling. I believe it might be the heater or heaters because the front of the refrigerator used to be hot, it's not even warm. In the freezer compartment has frost all over the back. I don't know if it's the heaters or something else? I opened the back where the cooling coils are, and it was solid

The front side of the vertical divider (inside the door) in the side-by-side is VERY hot, nearly hot enough that you can't keep a finger on it. Inside of fridge and freezer are still cold and frozen. I suspect it's the cooling fan in the bottom/back, which has been squeaking some due to a bad bearing; that problem had been fixed, to this point, with some WD-40. I haven't pulled the unit out yet to look, but was curious if anybody had seen this before.

My kenmore side by side is not cooling. Everything in the fridge portion seems to be about 50 degrees. After reading we pulled the fridge out from the wall and unplugged it. Something had fallen behind the fridge and was up against the compressor which was very hot. Now the fan near the compressor is not turning on. When we moved in 6 months ago the front piece in the middle of the 2 doors was always very hot. Not sure where to start.

We have a Kenmore freezer on bottom/fridge on top model. Came home yesterday to find the freezer items thawed. The fridge was cool but not cold. We jacked up both dials, and while some sort of fan is running and blowing out air in the freezer, the air doesn't feel very cold. The compressor on the back (if we are looking at the right thing) feels hot. For a while, I was having issues with food freezing in the back of the fridge, but I turned it down a notch, and that seemed to solve that problem.
