My refrigerator is about 10 years old. When we open and close the refrigerator door, a large amount of condensation builds up on the lower shelf and forms a puddle. The freezer works fine and there isn't any water in the drawers or on the bottom of the compartment. Any Ideas?
This issue sounds like the drain is clogged up. If you remove the 4 screws from the control housing and pull the control housing down to make sure that the drain port on the drain cup is not clogged up. If it is clear then you will want to try to flush the drain line that goes down through the wall of the unit as it is most likely clogged.
Hi, my refrigerator is about 10 yrs old now. The freezer and refrigerator compartments are keeping everything to the correct temperatures. The problem is that there is a fan that is kicking on and off, and on and off, until finally it stays on and then everything seems to run normal. I believe it is the Evaporator Fan Motor, located in the freezer compartment. My question is, is the Evaporator Motor about to go out on me, or is there a sensor telling the Evaporator Motor to start and stop, and start and stop. The replacement of this Motor seems easy enough, but I don't want to replace it if the issue is another component. Thanks for your help.
Answer Hello Andy,
If only the fan inside the unit is kicking on and off, check the electrical connections to the fan motor from the control section. If no poor electrical connections are located, the evaporator fan motor 5303918549 inside the freezer compartment is most likely failing. If this doesn't correct the issue, the adaptive defrost control 5303918476 should be replaced.
