Good morning Appliance Guru. A few years ago you helped me replace my dishwasher motor assembly and it continues to work like a champ! Now my fridge needs help. My refrigerator is a Kenmore 26' Dispenser Side by Side (Model #596.50699001) . Recently the face of the center support on the front of the fridge that divides the freezer section from the fridge section has been getting hot. Upon investigation, it seems that the cooling fan in the lower back of the fridge is not turning on when it should. It does run - after a gentle tap it starts to spin just fine. But somewhere from the time it turns itself off to the time it is supposed to start again it falls asleep on the job.
Hopefully this is a simple fix and won't require too many beers to complete. We are getting ready to sell the house, and I don't want to have to provide the new homeowners with a brand new fridge if I don't have to. Thanks in advance!
