Diagnosing refrigerator evaporator fan problems video
By Sears PartsDirect staff
If your refrigerator isn’t cooling well and the fan on the inside back wall of the appliance isn’t running or blowing cool air like usual, you might need to replace the evaporator fan. This video from Sears PartsDirect shows how to troubleshoot problems with your refrigerator’s evaporator fan, including using continuity checks to identify the problem and make sure that the fan motor, electronic control board and the wiring that connects them are working correctly.
If the temperature in your refrigerator doesn't match the temperature you set, the problem could be the temperature control board—a service technician can give you a definite diagnosis. If the board is at fault, follow these steps to replace it yourself.
