In Topic: Kennmore Trio - Freezer OK, Fridge warm

I thought I would close out the tread -- it was the Evaporator motor.  I replaced the motor and all is well with both the refrigerator and freezer again.  Thanks for everyone's help!


I have a new problem with a dedicated chest style freezer, but that is a problem for a different thread...

I forgot to close the door switches.  On the other hand, I did give the fan a push and it did start turning, but not at any significant speed (at least not enough to push any volume of air up into the refrigerator. 


Unfortuantely I do not have a schematic -- it would have been useful here to be sure. 









I believe the Door Switches need to be closed.

Will the Evaporator Fan run at all if given a "push" ?

Is that one of those Amanas that use the Defrost Bi-metal in the Evaporator Fan circuit ?

Does the Defrost work OK ?

Do you have a wiring diagram you could scan & post ?

I'm not sure if the fan should run when the doors are open, but I did try the two door switches.  The lights turned off but the fan still didn't run.  I'll try to post a picture of the frost pattern tomorrow morning.




a picture of your frost pattern would help.....does the fan turn when you keep the light switch pressed in and/or the bottom drawer closed? You have no idea how many times I think.."oh the fan isn't working"...then I remember to press the light switch or close the doors.
