My refridgerator freezes and cools just fine. my problem is when the compressor and fans shut down after cycling, the fan in the freezer will come back on after 7 or 8 seconds and run for 10-40 seconds.It will keep doing this for a long period of time and then the compressor will kick back on after awhile.I had a service tech here today from a local repair service and he said he has never seen anything like this before and is baffled. I figure there must be a relay somewhere that isn't allowing the power to the fan to shut down or may not be disengaging all the way when the compressor shuts down. The tech claims when the compressor is not running, the fans should be totally shut down also. Is there a relay that controls the circulation fan that may be faulty?

ANSWER Hello Jim. The thermostat and the defrost timer supply the power to the fan motor. You will need to test the thermostat and see if the power is cutting on and off. If so, replace the thermostat. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
