 Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

The freezer fan circulates the air from the freezer side across the coils which will have a frost pattern  on them when the compressor is on to the refrigerator section through a thermistor controlled air damper. 

The RESET button is a test button mounted on the main board and will place the controls in a test operation.  See the chart below.  Sometimes during power outages the control tends to lock up and unplugging and reconnecting the refrigerator from the wall after power has been restored will reset the control processor.  The new modern refrigerators can and will move air as the thermistors require and the new compressor will run more often and this is because of the efficiency of the new refrigerators.

I would recommend you unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes and reset the processor and that will reset the test program and see how it works.  

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Bill

Not sure I understand your answer... I need to know if this is normal, or is this stuck in a test cycle? Here was my original question, sorry it is so long :( What is "NORMAL" freezer fan circulation for this refrigerator?? I hear the freezer fan kicking on ever 12 seconds, and it runs for 15 seconds, then shuts off again for 12 seconds. This 12 seconds off, 15 seconds on, is a cycle that goes on all day whether the door is opened or not. After the doors of the refrigerator or freezer has been opened, I do hear the compressor kick on, which is a bit louder then just the freezer fan. Is it normal for the freezer fan to run in this cycle of off and on all day like this, independently of the condenser, to circulate the cold air to keep refrigerator cooled? Should it be just running solid all day (unless the compressor needs to kick on as well?

Should it be just running solid all day (unless the compressor needs to kick on as well? Is it keep the freezer frozen and the refrigerator cool? If you still think there is a problem and it is not keeping the foor product cool in the refrigerator and the food product frozen in the freezer I recommend you contact 1-888-266-6317 and have a Sears qualified technician out to check the problem for you.

This is just to make sure it is not stuck in test mode. The refrigerator is more efficient and the motors will run more not less. I get lots of call that the compressors run almost all day long and the new compressor are more efficient and designed to run longer but use less electricity in the cooling process.

Ok...that is great to know.. its easy to assume the very opposite and I guess that is why I was worried about it running so much LOL!! I am hoping its not just stuck in some test mode, and actually "working" correctly... So, after a 5 minutes unplug, if it still runs this same way, then all must be well. After that error message we got last week, now I am listening intently and getting a bit paranoid . :) I will be in touch! Thanks again for your help!

OH NO!!! We unplugged for 5 minutes. A few minutes after we plugged it back in, it went to error mode ER FF. It was cooling while it was in test mode, but now, its not cooling anymore. The bottom freezer is working fine, its just the fridge part that isn't working now. With all of this info, can you help us figure out how to troubleshoot what might be the problem? The fan works, it get cold and blows in test mode... but we cannot figure out WHAT is the problem. Remember, this issue started after a power outage. HELP!!!

If the freezer fan is working the refrigerator thermistor should ber faulty. Or the control board. Here is a link for the thermistor that is located inside the fresh food compartment.
