There seems to be no cold air circulating in the refrigerator section. Freezer is fine and fan is circulating in there.
Answer Hello Nealbar. You need to look and see if there is frost on the back of the freezer wall. If so, It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Plan to replace the evaporator fan motor and blade. Is it a good idea to replace both fan grommets as well? I haven't disassembled anything yet. Fridge is 7 1/2 years old. Thanks..
Answer Hi Jack. Evaporator Fan Motor -4389144 Blade not included. This refrigerator evaporator fan motor is located in the freezer section behind the back wall. For the blade order 2169142. If the grommets are broken then replace them with grommet part # 2176759 1/ea. Thank You.
The sides of the frige are Hot to the touch. Have not noticed this they stay hot while running, all the time.
Is there something that I have missed in the past is this right??
Answer Hello Fred. Check and make sure the condenser coils are clean on the unit and that the condenser fan motor W10181323 is running on the unit. If not, it will cause the issue you are having and you will need to replace the fan motor. The fan motor is located by the compressor. Hope this helps.
